I don't know, that play showed me enough, based on what I've seen of him otherwise (mostly in college), that he can be an effective #4 WR. I definitely don't think he'd make a good number 2, or even a number 3, but he's not really supposed to be that. If forced to play that role for a little while, he'll just need to make a few plays a game and I think the Packers will be OK. He's almost guaranteed to get single coverage often, and I think he can win enough to make a few plays a game against that coverage. The bigger burden is going to fall on someone such as Finley to pick up the slack. He obviously does have borderline elite talent, and he may be counted on to really show it for the foreseeable future.

But again, I think the key to all of this will be continuing to focus on the running game.


I'd take him over Sanjay Beach.

You have the benefit of having seen him in college so I'll give you that. One thing seems certain if early results are any indication, Rodgers won't shy away from going to him. You are right about the single coverage and maybe he will surprise everyone. At the very least the catch and run probably gave Rodgers a bit more confidence in him after the early miscues. I will say this though, I do feel more confident about him with the catch and run than I would without it.
