Because while Kenny Britt is down, our #1 WR would have to be Washington. I'm pumped about now having Randy Moss to help fill that role, even if he's a bum. So it's less about what will be and more about what would be, for now. Then when Britt returns, Moss won't have to be relied on so much, which is why I got excited. Our offense has never had that type of talent in the passing game with him, Britt, Washington, and the young guys like Damian Williams and Jared Cook (and when Britt returns, I fully expect him to be our best WR).
Also, you underestimate VY's arm. He's developed a damn good deep ball, especially with Britt. I'd argue VY's deep ball has been his best pass this season. Not trying to argue he's better than Brady or Favre, but he's more than capable. I wish people would start giving VY more credit for how well he's played this season.
