Question For Your Weekend: What If Our #2 WR is By Committee

There have been many debate about who will make the Panthers' roster at WR. Questions such as, "Will LaFell really start showing us that he is a true #2?" or "Who will replace Smitty when he does decide to hang it up?"

To date, here are all the WR we have on the Panthers' roster

15 Adams, Joe WR 5-11 185 23 2 Arkansas

2 Bersin, Brenton WR 6-3 210 23 1 Wofford

18 Bryant, Lamont WR 6-5 225 25 1 Morgan State

14 Edwards, Armanti WR 5-11 190 25 4 Appalachian State

12 Gettis, David WR 6-3 220 25 4 Baylor

19 Ginn, Ted WR 5-11 185 28 7 Ohio State

87 Hixon, Domenik WR 6-2 205 28 8 Akron

83 Ikharo, Taulib WR 5-10 190 23 1 Louisiana Tech

11 LaFell, Brandon WR 6-2 210 26 4 Louisiana State

17 Moss, Dale WR 6-3 215 24 1 South Dakota State

81 Pilares, Kealoha WR 5-10 205 25 3 Hawaii

10 Shaw, James WR 5-11 185 24 1 Jacksonville State

89 Smith, Steve WR 5-9 185 34 13 Utah

13 WR, all shapes and sizes. Some vets and some rookies. Some with great speed, some with great route running skills, and some because of their height can be a true red zone threat.

I said all that to ask this question, what if our receiving core is Steve Smith and everybody else? No, this is not a doom and gloom question, but in a way a hope and wish question. What if our #2 WR is the 5 other WR (if we carry 6) on the team.

Thank about it. Other teams know who Smitty is and will double team him all day, however, we we run a trips right and we have Ginn (speed), Edwards (route) and LaFell (redzone threat), with Smith on the other side (speed, redzone threat), you now give the defense something to think about. Cam's weapons would be anybody on the offense, (remember, Williams and Steward, along with Barner, can catch ball out of the back field). We could rotate receivers in and out at will without a drop in production. Who does the other team cover? Who do they double team? They can't cover all of them.

So, my deal is maybe we should hope to get a group of good receivers instead of focusing on getting a #2 WR, what do you think?
