Re-watched the Seattle playoff game and realized what my dad was talking about concerning upgrading the receiving core. Not only was our offense practically handicapped with Garcon being out during the regular season, our receivers were getting manhandled the entire playoff game. Even Garcon was getting bullied out there, guys weren't getting open, and there were also several dropped balls as well.
As much as been talked about Griffin not being 100% in this game, I don't feel enough credit has been given to Seattle and their 4th ranked defense and their physically corners. And as young as that team is, we're going to see them again in the playoffs. Even when Cousins came in, its was the same thing with receivers dropping balls and not getting open. Even at 100%, I feel this would've been a game Griffin wouldn't of gone over 200 yards passing, and would've needed to combine with Morris for another one of our 200, damn near 300 yard rushing games in order to win (which we were well on our way to doing in the first quarter until the adjustments and poor receiver play started to take its tll).
So as much as some people don't want to resign Davis, I feelit has to be an absolute priority to help Griffin from a receiving, playmaking standpoint. Having a big, fast receiver doing his thing over the middle coulda been enough for Griffin to pull that game out for us (because it was close all the way until he got hurt and turned the ball over in the redzone). The question I'm bringing up though is that with Griffin's TD passes going to players like Paulsen and Royster, is resigning Fred Davis enough? Do we need to do more then that in terms of upgrading the skill positions on offense to compete against teams we're going to see in the later rounds of the playoffs???
