    Passes of 30+ yards (not including YAC)

    McNabb 7 of 18 2TD 0INT
    Bledsoe 4 of 7 1TD 0INT
    Palmer 2 of 5 2TD 0INT
    Culpepper 2 of 3 1TD 0INT
    Collins 2 of 9 2TD 0INT
    Green 1 of 3 0TD 0INT
    Bulger 1 of 7 0TD 0INT
    Delhomme 0 of 4 0TD 0INT
    Brady 0 of 4 0TD 0INT
    PManning 0 of 6 0TD 1INT

    Bledsoe has completed more deep balls than any of these guys except McNabb (whose % is terrible).

    And this without a "deep threat" to throw to...

    Who ever said we didn't have a deep threat? Terry Glenn is clearly a threat to go deep. Bledsoe just doesn't do it because that's not the kind of offense they're trying to run right now. The local media all loves TG and Key so this must be somebody else?

    People have been saying we had no deep threat for years, including this entire offseason/preseason. Where have you been?

    Who are these "people" and why are they so stupid? Glenn is a burner with good hands. That just screams "deep threat."

    Just do a search for 'lack of a deep threat' or something similar, I'm sure you'll find them. Or maybe this is just a rhetorical question. Either way, I'm lazy.

    We're right here. I am of the opinion that we need more then just Glenn. I will say that Crayton has really been a nice surprise but honestly, when this discussion was had, way back when, nobody new what Crayton would be. Still in all, I think we need a young WR with speed. Did then, do now.

    Uh, if I had a dime for every time I heard how slow our WR's and offense was (especially during the offseason and training camp), I'd have a good chunk of change by now.

    Are you sure Collins has only completed 2 of 30+? Not doubting you, but it seems odd. Especially since I can remember 2 right off the top of my head.

    Actually, if they can work Price into the line-up, he has great speed and is a deep threat. That should add nicely to the arsonal of weapons for Drew!

    It's 2. Here's hoping that number doesn't change in the next few days, too.

    Percy, can you do a reverse stat?

    Find out which teams have the most 30+ passes completed on them?

    I almost hate to see the results, but I need to know.

    I couldn't find it Hos, but somebody around here probably knows where to find such.

    Instead look who leads the NFL in yards per catch (minimum 10 receptions):
    Glenn DAL 14 24.0
    Moss OAK 15 22.9
    Lloyd SF 10 22.4 (ouch)
    Bennett TEN 12 18.9
    Smith JAC 12 18.3
    Ward PIT 12 18.3
    Driver GB 12 16.8
    Johnson CIN 19 16.2
    Owens PHI 21 16.0
