After Torey Smith's rookie year I told my RAVEN buddy that Torey Smith would become a better WR than Mike Wallace.
This week I texted him "I told you Torey Smith would be better than Mike Wallace"

He burned Champ Bailey in the 1st Quarter using his deep speed, now he goes up to the highest point and catches a lob over Bailey.

Before we give that girl Wallace big money, lets wait for Torey Smith to hit the market and throw the money at him.

wait 2 years to improve the receiving corps?

Didn't say that. But I'm all for drafting someone this year and then stealing Smith from the Ravens!!

He's making Flacco look good that's for sure.

Eric Decker is high pointing the ball over DB's & Demarius Thomas is as well. We need at least one big physical WR that can high point a ball and catch the thing with his hands over a DB. Our WR corp is totally unphysical. Anquan Boldin is clutch as well.

I don't believe you have to have big physical receveirs to have success. Remember the Marks brothers? Clayton&Duper from the Dolphins 5-9 and 5-10 also Gary Clark of the Skins. All smurfs by todays standards but its not the size as everyone thinks.
Our receiver corps was pretty good before this season, I think the change in the offense had something to do with their sub-par year. If you want eight yd pass plays bring back Hines, Brown and Wallace are better suited for the longer pass plays.

I do agree we could get better blocking from our receivers something that was missing since Hines retired, then again no one blocked like Hines ward.

Why would we want Torrey Smith? Receivers come and go every year... we don't want Raven players coming here, just as much as we don't want Steeler players going over there. It's a rivalry. Swapping guys like it's nothing devalues the whole thing.

Steelers can't afford 2 WR's paid to be #1's.

Besides, the Haley offense would waste Torrey Smith as much as it wasted Wallace.

Best off drafting T.O. Part 2- a guy that can go across the middle, then shrug off defenders as best he can to make extra yards. That's our offense now.

Yes of course you don't need big WR. For the offense we run a bigger WR would fit better though and bring more to the table then a small non-physical WR brings. With all small WR you should spread teams out. We don't do that. We do the opposite of that.

Wondering if Bowe was effective in Haley's offense in KC

Exactly, that why I hope the Steelers consider Randy Fitz for OC, he knows how to run that offense and Ben will elevate his play and the receivers as well.

If you really think the OC decides the type of offense we run you are wrong.

I thought that was Plex's forte?

Plax is "big" minus the "physical". I'd like to have him back though for another season.

I think we need to look for a WR that can catch the ball with his hands not his body, someone who will fight for the ball, someone who will secure the ball after the catch...we're pretty much in back to basics mode. Interesting perspective by Chadman

Blech... had everything go right for her, worked her way through traffic (maybe she can play WR?), then shot forward on the straight....but ran out of steam. Trainer thinks she overworked her through the week, coupled with it being HOT (37 degrees celsius (98.6 fahrenheit), lead to her spluttering down the end. She's close... very close. And good. Just needs to get it right on raceday.

Lots of unhappy people involved!

Flacco throws a great deep ball!! He allows Torey Smith to do what he does best! I'd say their making each other look good....

huh?

do you consider 1 out of 4 a great percentage on deep balls

you could have sent him that text a year and a half ago

Champ Bailey was atrocious. It was hard to believe that this was a guy who was once considered the best CB in the game. He showed no ball skills on the one deep ball where he was in perfect position then decided to not play the ball, letting Smith make a play on it, and he was burned on at least two other routes that could have resulted in big plays.

Smith could have easily had 200 yards if Flacco had a better day.

Bailey and the safety that is still backpedalling on the last TD are the main reasons that Baltimore won. Then again, Denver would not have even been in the game without those returns.

Heh, Ben Roethlisberger and Cedrick Wilson made Champ Bailey look like a stooge in the 2005 AFC Championship Game.
