dezbryant One of the things that I’ve argued in the past as it relates to the receiving positions is that teams are better off just focusing on TD catchers. Defenses are actually configured to give up yards as they ask you to string together long drives, while they hope those drives are just fragile enough to keep you from putting points on the board. Bill Belichick’s defenses (when he was still a defensive guru) were famous for not giving a shit where they ended up ranked in yards allowed, while they would finish in the top 5 in scoring defense each year.
