arterback Aaron Rodgers to feel “excited to go home and have a scotch or two.”The 22-0 victory over the Bills isn’t one that’s going to make Rodgers feel content about the team’s offense Youth Geronimo Allison Jersey , however. The Packers picked up 423 yards in the game, but the quarterback called it “non-playoff team offensive-level” and lamented the lack of opportunities given to wide receiver Davante Adams because the Buffalo defense “couldn’t stop him.”Rodgers said the Packers have to “find ways to get him” the ball after being “terrible on offense” in Sunday’s win.“I’m also a realist,” Rodgers said, via “That’s just not acceptable offense for us. Four hundred and twenty-three yards looks pretty good in comparison to some of the games we’ve put forward the first three weeks, but it should have been about 45 points and 600 yards.”Rodgers got two practice sessions in this week after being limited to one in each of the previous two weeks because of his knee injury. We’ll find out what kind of schedule he’ll be on ahead of Week Five against the Lions in the next couple of days.Roster battle: Assessing the competition among Redskins wide receivers thru two preseason games Although many people might not have predicted it in late April, the battle at the wide receiver position is turning out to be perhaps the most competitive in Redskins Training Camp and preseason this year.Over the weekend, we posted articles on Hogs Haven that looked at the competition among young players for punt & kick returner and running back.Today, we’ll look at the competition among some promising receivers, most of them young, who are fighting for the backup positions behind Doctson, Richardson and Crowder, whom most fans would agree are locks to make the Redskins 53 man roster. With the Redskins expected to keep six wide receivers on the roster, there are probably three other spots up for grabs, though that number could increase or decrease by one on cutdown day when coaches and front office staff try to balance all the team needs. Robert Davis was looking like a favorite to win one of those spots, but he will now spend the season on injured reserve. What have the other receivers done in the first two preseason games to distinguish themselves and earn a roster spot?Today, we’re going to look at five receivers who are competing for what appears to be 3 roster spots: Maurice Harris, Trey Quinn, Cam Sims, Simmie Cobbs , and Brian Quick. There are at other receivers on the roster; Shay Fields and Darvin Kidsy have been with the team most of the summer; Daniel Williams and Alanzae Staggers are recent additions.With apologies to these four players and their families, we are ignoring them on the assumption that none of the four has a realistic chance of getting on the roster, while being perfectly happy for any of them to prove us wrong. Harris, Quinn, Sims, Cobbs and Quick each played in one or both games against the Patriots and Jets in the first two weeks of preseason; we will be analyzing their targets from those gamesto see if we can sort out the shape of the wide receiver battle as we head into the final two preseason games, which will be played on the 24th and 30th of August against the Broncos and Ravens. The evaluatorI’ve never made any secret of the fact that I am not the kind of guy who can break down film one play at a time. Knowing my limitations, I turn to others for help when I need it.Gibbs4potus (@westcoast_skins) did an outstanding job breaking down film on every undrafted rookie free agent in Redskin training camp in May, and he was the brains and the brawn behind the fine article looking at the competition at the returner positions among Redskin rookies that was published on Saturday, and the other article which took a detailed look at the young running backs on the Redskins roster published on Sunday.The rating systemAs Kirk Cousins was always so fond of saying, “Every play is its own entity”. Comparing all the elements of a single passing play with those of another is very much an apples-to-oranges comparison. There are just so many elements involved: the blocking, the play of the defense, the receiver’s route running and hands, and the quarterback’s throw. In a deep-dive-breakdown where we compare two plays side-by-side, all those elements can be discussed and analyzed.This article, however, is supposed to be more of a broad-brush overview of several players across dozens of plays. In the end, we decided to rank each play as if it were a hotel or restaurant — with a 5 star system. It’s simple, intuitive Corey Linsley Jersey , and allows for easy comparison.5=excellent, 4=above average, 3=average, 2=below average, 1=poor. The structure of the articleThe article will be presented in three parts:Part 1 - I will list all the 4-star and 5-star plays in a summary formatPart 2 - Each receiver under review will be listed one-by-one, and every target that player has had in the preseason to date will be ranked from best to worstPart 3 - The players under review will be ranked from best to worst, with a short commentary on what expectations are for that player based on performance in the two preseason games.Let’s get to it.Part 1 - The full list of four-star and five-star receptions5 STARS - Cam Sims, (Patriots 6:02 2Q)4.5 STARS - Cam Sims, (Jets 0:15 4Q)4 STARS - Cam Sims, (Patriots 10:55 2Q)4 STARS - Cam Sims, (Jets 3:03 2Q)4 STARS - Maurice Harris, (Patriots 13:15 1Q)4 STARS - Maurice Harris, (Patriots 4:36 2Q)4 STARS - Trey Quinn, (Jets 10:28 2Q)4 STARS - Trey Quinn, (Jets 11:29 3Q)4 STARS - Brian Quick, (Jets 0:47 2Q)Part 2 - The rating of every target by every receiver Maurice Harris Trey QuinnCam SimsGeoff Burke-USA TODAY SportsSimmie CobbsBrian QuickPhoto by Patrick McDermott/Getty ImagesPart 3 - Overall Rankings#1 Maurice HarrisRoute running 4.0 Hands4.0Run After Catch3.0 Returner3.0 #2 Trey QuinnRoute running4.0Hands 4.0 Run After Catch 3.0Returner 3.0 #3 Cam Sims Route Running 3.0 Hands3.0Run After Catch3.0 Returner2.0 #4 Brian Quick Route Running3.0 Hands3.0 Run After Catch 3.0 Returner 2.0#5 Simmie CobbsRoute Running 2.5 Hands 3.0 Run After Catch 2.5 Returner2.0
