If this team thinks they can bring in a backup and do nothing else, our season is lost.

IMHO we need to get aggressive and make a significant trade for a WR that can replace KA's ability. Alshon Jeffrey? Josh Gordon?

What do you guys think?
I said before the game the team is a year away. This game proves further. The team (assuming they bring back Ingraham and Teo) will have practically everyone back, including KA and hopefully not MM. This team doesn't have a replacement for KA. Find one in the draft, along with some plugs for some other holes. This team will be even better next year. Anything this year is gravy.

You don't replace Keenan. It's a big blow to the team and looks like they didn't recover from it in the 2nd half.

Benjamin is the #1 followed by Tyrell Williams and Isaiah Burse. We have HH and Gates and of course Woodhead and MG.

The team will need to regroup and get back to work. Things to praise in the first half. Rivers has to be a better game manager. He has done it before without big name receivers. There is question now in my mind that he can't close games in pressure situations.

Go Bolts

Although Gordon would be the player to get he is now happy being reunited with RG "Me" his QB at Baylor and the Browns have stated they'd require a substantial amount in return and we don't have anything to give

Rivers needs a big body receiver who can jump up for balls.

Reuben Randle is available after being cut by the eagles. Had 800 yards last year with the giants and 938 the year before. Was a second round pick out of LSU in 2012. Might be the best available.

Done what exactly? Win a Superbowl? That hasn't happened last I remembered. Aggressive moves need to be made or we just hope for a wildcard spot which is unlikely and draft a WR... While wasting yet another prime year for PR.

This line of thinking is why our organization does not win.
