    Question
    You mentioned chunk yardage. The question we are asked most by the fans deals with the wide receiver position and the challenge of finding a true game-breaker in the mold of an Andre Johnson and Larry Fitzgerald. How do you view that challenge.

    Jeff Ireland/ Every team is looking for them. We're not different. We're all looking for a superstar wide receiver. Those players come at a high price. You are either drafting them very high in the draft or giving up high draft picks and a lot of money to get them. Now, I'm not saying we wouldn't do that. The circumstances just haven't fallen for us to do either one right now.

    Go get one. Please!

    Hey, there's a Golden Knight I know of that rings a bell in that giving up high draft picks category... hell of a fit he'd be.

    Pretty sure Marshall is a FA at the end of this year.

    TO and TJ are both in their 30s and on the downside of their careers. Boldin hasn't been healthy, and he too is almost 30.

    I think Ireland was smart enough not to mortgage this season and the future of this team by sinking millions into one of those 3; I think he definitely wants a young, hand-picked guy who will be around for 8-10 years, not 1-2 then done. Brandon Marshall is the only young WR that I think we could make a move for if his off-field/practice antics haven't taken him off the radar already.

    Brandon Marshall doesn't bother me for one second regarding his personality, and that's strange cause I loathe flashy receivers and much prefer Reggie Wayne/Andre Johnson quiet types. Marshall just gives me a good vibe for some reason.
