    Obviously we all like him, he is going to be a huge part of our future, but even if we lose him we still have Peerless Price (which will likely be an upgrade over crayton in the passing game).

    Keyshawn and Witten will get more receptions probably.

    But while we lose a returner (I'm guessing Tyson Thompson will do both now), we don't really lose anything in the passing game. The biggest loss is the experience Crayton was gaining.

    We will miss Crayton but yes rice is not at all a bad 3rd WR option.

    Aaron Glenn will return punts if he can't go.

    Crayton is a very savvy so don't assume Price will fill the 3rd WR role better.

    What? I don't think you can say that. Price can do some things crayton can't do, but Crayton does some things Price can't do. I don't think Price is "better" then Crayton though. If he were he would of been playing.

    We may get little more speed with Price but Crayton has had some clutch catches that moved the chains this year.

    Im just saying Im not too worried about the position. If it was Glenn or Johnson down, I'd be worried.

    We will definitely miss Crayton if he is out for an indefinite time! Parcells stated in post game interview that he may have broken his ankle but he further said don't quote me until I tell you for sure. Crayton plays good special teams, is developing into an excellent blocker and probably has the best hands on the team. Price offers good speed but none of the rest!

    I think Witten's #s will really pick up now. What we lose with Crayton's injury is his ability to make tough catches over the middle and yds after contact between the hashes. Price cant provide that, although I'm assuming Peerless is much better down the field and getting seperation. Witten will have to step up as that short-intermediate guy once again to help Key in that area.

    Crayton makes catches that you have to wonder how'd he do that? I like him very much but it will be interesting to see how teams deal with two burners as opposed to just having one.

    Most teams don't have the personnel to match up with two burners so just for the sake of matching up, teams won't be able to cheat up on JJ or whom ever.
