    RAMS have the worst but if Avery and Clayton were healthy we wouldn't be on the list.

    The others aren't all that much better, but I think the Rams take the cake in the "lack of talent" department at WR.

    Re: Worst receiving core in the NFL?

    Not only the WR'S, but the TE's are below average. Jackson isnt bad for his size, but rarely makes players miss. This is the main reason Sam is having it so difficult, it must be a nightmare for him out there.
    Thier is not one player who can make people miss after the catch. We also need a shifty back for the passing game next draft.
    The truly talented teams are licking there chops when playing the Rams. Easy pickings.
    San Francisco this week doesnt have the best secondary, so there should be no excuse if we lose. Big week for Bradford.
    I expect Sam to play well this week, if he does not, Ill be worried for the future. No more regressing Sam, please dont let us down.
    GO RAMS.

    The emergence of Mike Williams for Tampa means you can probably take them off the list. I'd replace them with Cleveland. For as bad as the Rams' receiving groups is, I think the Cleveland Browns are probably worse. Their top receiver is Mohamed Massaquoi, who has 31 receptions for 418 yards and 2 touchdowns.

    Good call. Browns are probably the worst. Then Rams. Then Seahawks. Dishonorable mention to the Panthers for a declining Steve Smith and a whole bunch of nothing else.

    Oh yeah, how could I leave off the Browns...they are worse than us. I'm trying to think, did they have someone good that got injured or have they been this bad all year?

    Ummmmm, Colt McCoy has been quite consistent with his talent at WR. We have the worst WR-corps, until Avery and Clayton can stay healthy in the long run, we have the worst one in the league.

    They traded Braylon Edwards away in October of 2009, since then it's been pretty bad for them in terms of receiver help.

    Bradford's beenfairly consistant with the guys we have too, but that doesn't make them good. Look at these guys and tell me they're better than what we have:

    Wide Receiver 1
    Mohamed Massaquoi
    Chansi Stuckey

    Wide Receiver 2
    Brian Robiskie
    Joshua Cribbs

    Although they do have Ben Watson at TE who has been playing well.

    That's probably more of a credit to McCoy than it is the group of wide receivers.

    Consider that over the course of the season, Cleveland quarterbacks have targeted five different wide receivers a combined 188 times. That's only 46% of the total passes thrown this season. Meanwhile, tight end Ben Watson and running back Peyton Hillis have 160 combined targets between just the two of them - nearly 40% of all throws go to those two non-WRs.

    To compare that to the Rams, Danny Amendola and Brandon Gibson have a combined 186 targets, nearly as many as EVERY Browns WR has had this year combined. Amendola and Gibson have caught five touchdown receptions between them on the year. That's more than the number of touchdown receptions made by EVERY Cleveland receiver combined (4). St. Louis WRs have been targeted on 64% of all passes thrown this season, nearly 20% more than the Cleveland group.

    Simply out, there's not much question in my mind that Cleveland is fielding a worse unit.

    Re: Worst receiving core in the NFL?

    I dont think the Bears or Bucs should be on that list. They could be better but theyre not close to us. Tate and Gilyard have had about the same impact, none. I dont know why robinson has looked so much worse than he did when he came here last year. Gibson and Amendola should be the only guys brought back next year and only for the 3/4 positions

    Re: Worst receiving core in the NFL?

    Come on guys. Yes I too would have liked to have seen what would have been had Avery and Clayton not gotten hurt but lets give these guys some credit for helping Sam Bradford to be rated no. 13 in the whole league with over 3000 yds. receiving. I believe that he is rated over Vick , Sanchez, Kitna,
    Cassell and even Favre.

    Re: Worst receiving core in the NFL?

    That's a really amazing for a rookie QB to achieve, especially with how thin our WR-corps is. Though I'm really concerned with the poor play over the last 3 games (ARZ, NO, KC) that might be a sign of regression... Hope he rebounds against the Whiners.

    Re: Worst receiving core in the NFL?

    It's a notable accomplishment because he's a rookie, but realistically, it's not really that hard to get to 3,000+ yards when you throw the ball as much as Bradford has (517 attempts, fifth most in the league).
