    Torey Smith > Mike Wallace

    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.

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

    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
