    Parcells and Jones have given Bledsoe three receivers to throw at whom he has intimate knowledge of their abilities: Glenn, Johnson and Price. He's well familiar with what each receiver brings to the table. That's a comfort level that a quarterback like Bledsoe can only dream of having for opening day.

    The same comfort level will eventually develop between him and Witten and Crayton. But for right now, Bledsoe knows exactly what strengths that these three bring to the two wides and the slot. Now, if the offensive line will only give him enough time to throw the ball...

    Actually Bledsoe has never played with Keyshawn before. So he doesn't have that intimate knowledge of him (unless I misunderstood your statement). But he still has the other two and he'll form some chemistry with Keyshawn soon enough, hopefully.

    My bad. I thought that he played with Johnson with the Jets. Must have been Vinny. :mad:

    EDIT: Okay I've officially lost it. Bledsoe never played with the Jets. :banghead:

    So many old time QBs... it's hard to distinguish the difference. lol


    I think Bledsoe will form some chemistry with Keyshawn eventually. Unless Key keeps throwing football at defenders' faces and getting called for unsportsmanlike conduct penalties. Bledsoe didn't look too happy when Key did that vs the Jags.

    Parcells was mentioned time and time again about surrounding the QB with pieces to make him succesful.

    IMO Mission accomplished.

    Key - Bledsoe will learn to love him, and his physical nature.

    Price - One of Bledsoe's favorite receivers and a legit weapon, especially as a 3rd or 4th receiver.

    Glenn - The duo is reunited.

    Witten - His security blanket, and IMO better than Coates.

    Crayton - Is becoming very legitimate

    Julius Jones - need I say more

    A-Train - Bruiser for the tough yards

    Now only if the O-ine has a great year. If they do this thing could become special.

    If we give Bledsoe time I can not think of many defenses that can shut this group down.

    I like the things we can do with these guys. The different packages we can throw at teams:

    Three wide sets:
    1) Key and Glenn with Crayton in the slot (we'll see a lot of this on 3rd and short up to 7)
    2) Price and Glenn with Key in the slot (3rd and 8 - 12)
    3) Price and Glenn with Crayton in the slot (good for stretching the field, 2nd 10, 3rd and 12 or longer) ...(3rd and 50?)

    Two wide sets:
    1) Key and Glenn (starters)(1st and 10; 2nd and less than 10)
    2) Key and Crayton (same as above just spells Glenn some early in 2nd half)
    3) Price and Glenn (2nd and 10 - 17; more deep speed and stretches the field a little more for the draw play)
    4) Price and Crayton (late in games that are already won/lost)

    Lots of versitility if we do it right.

    You're not going to get an argument out of me on that point. My only concern is that Bledsoe will UNDERuse Witten. That would be a major mistake. Witten is money for moving the chains. All Bledsoe needs to do is find him underneath on 3rd down passing situations. That's a nearly automatic first down completion.

    Judging from preseason, i think the Arizona game bledsoe will throw to Witten. Didn't he complete like 4 passes in a row to him?

    Good question. I believe so, but I also remember Romo connecting his Witten almost exclusively one series. Don't remember which QB exactly.

    No...that was Romo

    Not sure Bledsoe even completed 4 passes total in that game.

    But...he has redeemed himself over the last 3 games. He continually improved in each game and was stellar in the last game...albeit against 2nd team.

    I will acually expand on that.

    We have enough weapons now to really cause some problems by going with 4 WR sets, and even some 5 WR sets.

    Spread the field with Key, Glenn, Price, and either Witten or Crayton.

    Who are you going to cover?

    Defenses will have to respect that, and almost will always give us a match up advantage. The defense will pay, and the draw play will be scary with Julius and the space it should create, especially if they try to double any of the recievers.

    5 WR set, OMG! Key, Glenn, Witten, Price, and Crayton.
    The only thing I do not like about this is it takes Julius off the field, but that has to scare a defense pretty bad.
    Might be pretty good to give Julius an extra breather now and then.

    I agree completely.

    There will be NO excuses if (when) Bledsoe plays poorly this season.

    The OL is better than Buffalo's.

    The RB is as good, if not better.

    The WRs are superior and we even added one of his little friends to make him feel better.

    Put up or shut up time.

    In the five-receiver sets, Petitti will probably feel the heat more than any other OL. That's a test that if the young man succeeds, Bledsoe should get lots of time to deliver the ball. The defense will definitely be stretched from sideline-to-sideline.

    I am drooling over the thought of seeing : Keyshawn, TG, Crayton, Witten and P.Price out there. Where do you put your best DB?

    Versitility and depth. I wonder how we will do with 4 WR sets plus Witten. I wonder if he'll even do that but it's hard to imagine it not happening occasionally esp if we the OL is giving great pass protection.
