Since the current Jaguars receivers is such a big concern to some fans, I decided to look over all of the other teams current receiver situation to see if ours is as big of a problem as some are making it. By my estimation, it would appear that 23 of the 32 teams have at least one go to receiver on their, listed as followed (although you may not agree with every receiver):

Patriots – Wes Welker

Dolphins – Brandon Marshall

Jets – Santonio Holmes (FA)

Ravens – Anquan Boldin

Bengals – Chad Ochocinco (FA), Terrell Owens (FA) and A.J. Green (even though he hasn’t proved it yet)

Texans – Andre Johnson

Colts – Reggie Wayne

Titans – Kenny Britt

Broncos – Brandon Lloyd and Demaryius Thomas

Chargers – Vincent Jackson (FA)

Chiefs – Dwayne Bowe

Cowboys – Miles Austin and Dez Bryant

Eagles – DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin

Redskins – Santana Moss

Giants – Hakeem Nicks

Vikings – Sidney Rice (FA) and Percy Harvin

Packers – Greg Jennings and Donald Driver

Falcons – Roddy White and Julio Jones (another unproven talent)

Saints – Marques Colston, Robert Meechum and Devery Henderson

Buccaneers – Mike Williams and Arrelius Benn

Lions – Calvin Johnson

Panthers – Steve Smith

Cardinals – Larry Fitzgerald

49ers – Michael Crabtree

 

After viewing all of this in a little more in detail, there is a lot to decipher from all of this. So since there is already so much here, I will say what I get from all of this and leave the rest up to you.

First and foremost, there will be many changes after this labor dispute is over, so another in depth look will be needed when football starts back up and final cuts are made.

Secondly, most teams that I think have a go to receiver do not fit the mold of the prototypical #1 receiver (6’2”+, 215+ pounds). Mainly, the Eagles with DeSean Jackson (5’10”, 175 lbs.) and Jeremy Maclin (6’0”, 198 lbs.), the Packers with Donald Driver (6’0”, 194 lbs.) and Greg Jennings(5’11”, 198 lbs) and the Patriots with Wes Welker (5’9”, 185 lbs.). What this tells me is that some of these go to receivers are more of a product of the system they’re in and the quarterback that is throwing them the ball, rather than their talent. I find this especially true since considering I put Mike Williams and Arrelious Benn of the Buccaneers on the list. I think you put them on other teams and they might not be the players they are today.

Thirdly, I can easily see arguments against players that I have put up their as go to receivers, but I think that is the way the team they are on views them but that is solely my opinion and is up for debate. Also there is a number of players that I did not mention that some could argue as go to receivers, such as Lee Evans and Roscoe Parrish of the Bills, Limas Sweed of the Steelers, Davon Bess of the Dolphins, Josh Cribbs of the Browns, Jacoby Jones of the Texans, Pierre Garcon of the Colts, Malcolm Floyd of the Chargers, Mario Manningham of the Giants, Johnny Knox of the Bears and Steve Breaston of the Cardinals. As they are all decent receivers, I’m not sure they should be considered as go to receivers but my perception is flawed due to the fact that I don’t keep up with other teams that much. Also, many of these guys that I think are go to receivers are nearing the end of the careers, so there is no telling how long they will be considered as such.

The teams with only one go to receiver are in a similar positions as the Jaguars, depending on mostly unproven talent to provide production until they can upgrade the position. As the Jags could use an upgrade at the position, so could a host of other teams, even those that have a go to receivers. Because as I stated, some of them are nearing the end of their careers (Panthers – Steve Smith) or out talented by some of the teams with premier receivers (Buccaneers – Mike Williams and Arrellious Benn). So while the Jaguars group may struggle at times during the season, by comparison to some squads, we still could do worse.

Lastly, I will say this; as there will be obvious holes in my argument (and I’m looking forward to being blasted for them), I think Mike Thomas has the potential to be the first Jaguar on our current roster to considered the go to guy, if he isn’t already considered as much.

*I would’ve liked to add more to this post, but as most would agree, it’s already long enough.
