    where the heck is Wheaton tonight?

    Tomlin last week and Ben during the week both said Wheaton would be involved more. He is an electric playmaker on an offense struggling for big plays.

    I have only seen him in the game for one play, the one where Ben missed him for an easy first down. What gives?

    Noted today that Brady threw TD's to two rookie WR's. So, what's our problem with using Wheaton?

    Wheaton is on the bench where all rookies belong.

    When one of the starters gets injured, then maybe they'll work him in.


    Maybe.

    I bet if he had Amendola and Gronk those rookies wouldn't be seeing the ball. I agree that we should be seeing some Wheaton but I don't think that he would've helped much.

    wheaton should see more playing time.. Should be worked in the same as Jarvis. With that said, he did run the wrong Way on the last interception and even though Ben threw him a bullet duck he really needed to catch that..

    How Wheaton gets worked into the rotation will be interesting & exciting to see. Chadman still believes that, overall, he was one of, if not the most rounded WR in the 2013 Draft. Hopefully next season we'll see Brown, Wheaton & an as-yet un-named "open even when he's covered" Julio Jones/AJ Green/ DeAndre Hopkins type WR as our top 3 options, not Sanders & Cotchery, who combined have more drops than catches in 2013...

    Wheaton either can't grasp the playbook, isn't as good we think he may be or Haley doesn't recognize his talent, if he can't beat out Sanders or Cotchery right now for snaps.

    I think BB's late INT showed why Wheaton hasn't seen the field more. I believe it was him. Looked like an option route & BB threw it where he should have been. Maybe we will hear something about it during the week. It looked like Wheaton made the wrong read and BB put it in front of the S since the S ran with Brown. Wheaton broke to the sideline when he should have settled in front of the S. Don't have playcall or info to go with it but my educated guess.
