Losing Corey Smith hasn't helped. This guy could cut and gain a step and he had wide receiver hands basically.
KJ Hill has been injured a lot. I can still see him catching everything with one hand in practices. His lack of health might have taken away a truely gifted receiver for this season.
I also wonder, although unproven and not a WR in high school, what would Torrence Gibson might have brought? I like having a tall wide receiver who can jump through the roof. We really don't have that for a big mismatch.
The combined miss catches (even Brown geez) and miss throws by JT along with OL problems amplifies the passing woes.
I will say, IMHO, Parris Campbell got in the way of Samuel on that throw by JT to Curtis in the PSU game where Curtis broke to the sidelines. IMHO Parris was almost tackled by defensive holding to cause that slipup and there was no call. This IMHO was even worse than the McLaurren no call as it was even more obvious.
