    who # 1?

    Who is our number 1 reciever.... The goto guy? I know the ball will probably be disturbuted semi equally (maybe something like the saints) but would gibson be considered #1 on the depth chart or msw?

    Re: who # 1?

    For what it's worth the Depth Chart on the Rams web site is this...

    WR - Gibson / Alexander / Curry / Pettis

    WR2 - Amendola / Sims-Walker / Salas

    My guess is Amendola, even though we'll likely see him in the slot more often than not. He's our most consistent until anyone else proves otherwise.

    Who's Brady's #1 receiver? Welker. Well the upgraded version of that pair in Bramendola will be coming soon to the playoffs near you!

    Does it matter?

    Not trying to be a smart-alec, but I'd rather Bradford have a comfort level with every receiver on the field. When I look at this corp, I don't see a "#1" receiver. But I really don't think they need one.

    If you haven't heard Hub... you have to have a true #1 receiver to be any good. ; )

    Yeah Hub - what's wrong with you?

    What with your weekly column and all, you're simply going to have to start paying more attention.

    Sheesh.

    Re: who # 1?

    If you're looking at in from the context of the guy Bradford looks for in a pinch, then it's probably Amendola. If you're looking for the receiver who is likely considered the top, starting receiver or the #1 guy, then it's probably Gibson until Bradford and MSW build up a better rapport. Either way, I don't think the Rams have a true, legitimate #1-type receiver, but the debate about whether or not they need one isn't a new one and probably is tangent from your primary question.

    Leave it to Nick to completely derail a thread's sarcastic bent with an injection of informational logic, (with which I concur 100% incidentally, but that's beside the point).

    Doesn't it ever occur to you to leave us wandering in the wilderness, perfectly content in our ignorance?
    Take a break sometime - nobody likes a know-it-all.

    (P.S. I would have said 'tangential to', but we'll let the Loquacious One, aka AV, make that call).

    Re: who # 1?

    Mike Sims-Walker is the clear cut #1 Rams WR! In Jacksonville this guy had the un-canny ability to get the ball in the endzone. MSW made David Garrard a feared NFL QB, Any wonder why the Jags have suddenly given Garrard the Boot?! Just think of what Sims-Walker will do for Bradford combined in the McDaniels scheme. Let's not kid ourselves, the rest of the league will definitely know who's the #1 Rams wideout to fear the Most. If anything MSW will open things up for Gibby, Danny Boy and the like.
    .....And let's not forget JAX and Caddy coming outta da backfield! I can see McD working these two backs into the Rams Passing game mix.

    Tangent? That's opposite over adjacent, right?

    Correct, (and I expect you to use in your analysis this week).

    Actually, I've read that 37.4% of people like a know-it-all.

    Re: who # 1?

    Do we need a true #1? I think the obvious answer is yes. Close games usually come down to a big play or two, which is where the elite recievers make their pay. A true #1 is going to win you games you would otherwise lose, when a lesser reciever simply could not make that spectacular catch on 3rd down or in the end zone. In a game of inches, the difference between going to the playoffs and staying home could be the difference between Rodey White and Brandon Gibson. We have what we have, so there is no point in complaining, but I think the logic of having more elite players (including at WR) should be pretty obvious.

    Although, I have a good feeling about Lance Kenricks, which should take some pressure off of our sub-par WR corps.
