Well as of right now it's true they are just decent recievers!!!!!!!!!phinfan2003 said:Apparently Chambers took exception to Saban calling him (and Booker) decent WR's.
I think what pissed him off more is that while he called Chambers and Booker decent, he called Gus good.
nyjunc said:We've gone over this before, great WRs make their QBs better. Plenty of WRs have played w/ much worse than what Chambers has played w/ and still had big time seasons including Marty Booker when he was w/ Chicago. You have had competent QBs(except Feeley) since Chris arrived so the QB excuse is a bad one.

For a WR who is supposed to be GREAT he misses hard catches and easy ones. he also drops passes and has yet to break 1000yds. Good- Great WR's make crappy QB's better. and good QB's can make avg WR's better. Chambers is just middle of the road, nothing more untll he can prove it.flintsilver7 said:You people have no idea what a dropped pass is really all about. A dropped pass is supposed to be one that is catchable with normal effort. According to Snap Stats - which is very accurate - Chambers has one drop, and Booker has three. That means that according to the best combined opinions of sportswriters, statisticians, and sports analysts, Chambers had one pass he could've caught with normal effort and Booker had three. Anything beyond that was considered not catchable with normal effort.
Chambers has made a number of circus catches this season - had he not made those catches, they would not be dropped. Even if the stats were off by a factor of three - as in Chambers had three drops - GUS IS STILL A BAD QUARTERBACK.
You people that are all enjoying your Sabanite Fool-Aid need to get your heads out of the sand and realize Chambers will NOT excel with Gus. It won't happen. Gus can't reliably hit him. Gus can't reliably hit anyone for that matter.
If I were Chambers, I would be upset. Saban has always defended Gus - usually without legitmate cause. He mentioned that Gus was getting knocked around in the past as an excuse. Miami has one of the best pass-protecting lines in football this season. He blames basically everybody around Gus. It's sickening and it's almost as bad as everybody here agreeing with him.
Arizona: Boldin had 1377 yards in 2003. He was by far the primary target. Both Jeff Blake and Josh McCown had QB ratings higher than Gus Frerotte has currently. Both Fitzgerald and Boldin will be 1000 yard receivers this season. It is worth noting two things - one, whoever is quarterbacking between McCown and Warner is significantly better than Frerotte, and two, Arizona has no running game to speak of. They gain yards through the air.A Wing Pilot said:decent recievers get 750-999yds a season good-great < 1000yds a season. And before you give me its the QB's fault, explain to me how they do it all the time in N.O., Arizona, Chargers, Bengals, even Detriot.
