I said the same thing in another thread.

I am hopeful, that like Holmes- who really is not a true "outside" receiver-

they can use Sanders in slants and deep crossing patterns to draw a safety off of Wallace.
The dilemma is that the two rookies we drafted are probably the only WRs other than Wallace who have the ability to stretch the field. Let's hope one can replcate the rookie season that Wallace had but that will be a very unlikely possibility.
