Legitimately I think most of our receiving corps might be ********. Mario answered the questions wrong, Hixon thinks his calf is part of his knee, everybody other than Nicks is always in the wrong place, Barden thinks football players are paid to ride a bike, it's really sad that we don't have Steve Smith to raise hte collective IQ barely above functionally ********.

Is Shaun Hill a top 10 QB? Definitely not. Is he a top 20 one? Almost certainly.
I want to be upset, but it doesn't even bother me anymore. The way this season is playing out, half the team is going to land on IR by the end of the season anyway.
And while Nicks is a beast, I'm going to disagree with the notion that he's always in the right spot. That's actually not true. Nicks runs a wrong route every now and then as well.
For example, on a deep throw on Monday, Eli threw the fade and Nicks went post, and it looked like a wildly inaccurate ball to the untrained eye. But it was actually a sight error on Nicks' part. Wouldve been on the money if he ran to the right spot.
It was man with a safety up top. Eli read it right, the safety stayed home in the middle and Nicks got by his man on the release. Running the post made him run right into the safety. If he ran the fade like he was supposed to, it's 30-35 yards.
So the casual fan sees Eli throw an "inaccurate ball into double coverage". The truth is he did everything he was supposed to do but the WR made a mistake.
I hate this system. It's too complex for the average athlete. You need 11 coaches on the field to pull it off.
