TwistNHook: So, what are people's thoughts on the WR/TEs going into 2014. This is actually a position of strenght, but losing Rodgers is going to hurt for sure.
boomtho: This is the position group I'm most excited about next year. We appear to ridiculously deep at WR, with Treggs, Harper, Lawler, Harris, and Davis all legitimate threats to stretch the field and make plays (and that doesn't even account for Hudson, Powe, and Brown who have all shown flashes). Assuming the Bear Raid gets into its groove this year, this depth could prove very helpful as we ramp up the tempo. Franklin and Dykes are actually going to have some tough decisions when determining who gets on the field. One thing that could make the difference is how the WRs play in the run game. By virtue of not really playing TE's, the WR's are going to be crucial to the success of the run game. I am definitely not knowledgeable enough to know who our best run blocking WR's are, but hopefully they are also our best pass catchers!
Nam Le: Don't forget that some of that blocking effectiveness is compounded by the pace they're able to consistently work at -- it's a lot easier to block guys out there when they're tired, which we don't always manage. A lot of the offense's issues last season were inseparable from -- or at least all influential on -- each other, in that regard.
Avinash Kunnath: Bryce Treggs and Chris Harper are almost always on the field because of their blocking (Treggs has been particularly good at holding up on his blocks in the past). Stephen Anderson joined them last season--he is probably our best pure WR blocker and I imagine will be featured a lot as the primary blocker on quick WR screens.
