    Surprising that 90 is the team record. That was a high number back in the 90's but nowadays 100+ is normal. Guess that means we haven't had a great receiver for a looong time. In the right scheme I believe Landry can get to 100 catches and 1500 yards. Once we can buy time for tannehill and back the safeties off.

    I really like Jarvis Landry but 18 targets in a game is ridiculous. Its not even close to a winning recipe and almost guarantees a loss. Jarvis is a great #2 and slot guy...he should not be treated as a #1 WR

    3 factors as to why he got targeted so much..Cameron sucking balls,Stills not being effective and Matthews being hurt..Obviously they didn't want to use Millers pass catching ability out of the backfield so that left us with 1 option.

    And our Rookie WR is irrelevant atm.

    Maybe RT targets him because its his 1st read and he doesn't see the entire field well. He's a security blanket. The type usually needed for an inexperienced rookie QB.

    I agree on the reasons why...I also agree that it is a HORRIBLE formula to try and win a game

    18 targets in a single game is to many for a #1 receiver. We are going to get Landry hurt before the season is over. Serious hurt if these dummies are not careful.
    The kid gives everything every down. Hes gonna get hurt if they don't give the kid some time to rest.

    I think way too much was made from that 1 game with 18 targets
    because he's right around 10 targets per game and 7 catches per game

    I'd rather have him with those targets than what we previously had
