I agree. Matt is a smart Coach and he’ll utilize his best and more experienced players more. All that said, elite QB’s of the past make the players around them rise to the occasion. Some examples are Bradshaw, Marino, Montana, Manning, Elway, Favre and Rodgers. Those of us that are old enough watched those QB’s throw to 7,8,9+ more players per game, and they were successful at it too.
If the QB is the Queen of the Chessboard. Then #12 is a Queen with Rook (Horse) powers as a plus. #12 can get out of nearly any predicament. He’s had relatively below average resources (draft/FA) to work with since Greg Jennings departure. Jordy, Cobb, Adams were all bi-products of a Offense with superior OL coaching and a Receiver friendly system with a Master Technician. It’s my belief we may never see as accurate a Passer and as formidable a Game Manager combination, possibly in our lifetimes. #12 and his expectations and stubbornness (as much as we may tease him) makes it all function like a well oiled machine.
I’m not saying trading for a player shouldn’t be a consideration. It should always be one. Yet I wouldn’t be in a hurry and we might just be surprised at what he can do spreading the ball around and using lots of play action. Rodgers will pick his poison and he’ll naturally flow to the hot hand at Receiver.
I still think Christian Watson is going to impress. My only question is how fast can he adapt, he lost valuable time. I think he’s absolutely good enough to floor out at WR3. His limit is dependent on usage and him focusing intently. He’s Packer WR1 capable if he maximizes his opportunities early on. That boy definitely won’t get run down by anyone in the open.
