With a young D and a trio of backs, we will be looking to control the clock, which means:
Option #1: Jones, Barber, A-train at least 30-35 combined carries plus another 5 touches on receptions. 520 rushes and 80 receptions.
Option #2: Witten, he got 87 last year so why would Bledsoe not throw to his new Coates? At least 75 catches.
Option #3: Key, he was our #1 WR and a chain mover in a ball control system. 70 Catches.
Option #4 Glenn.
We also have Morgan, Crayton, Campbell, and Copper who will combine for 50-60 catches.
80+75+70+55 = 280 receptions. Just where are the catches for Glenn going to come from?
I'm not sure the # of catches for Glenn matters as much as the YPC.
The passing game will be set up by and large by the play action. When we look downfield, Terry Glenn is option #1.
*IF* everything goes as planned you may see him with a lower # of catches, but a respectable 16-18+ YPC.
Also I think Bledose will naturally look to Glenn before Key. They have a history together, and Bledsoe's reputation is to not look as much for the underneath guy (be that good or bad). Vinny forced a lot of stuff into Key last year, especially after Glenn went down. I don't see Bledsoe doing the same thing.
