We lost one of the best receivers in the league in Fantuz and two very good receivers in Bagg and Koch. It's not easy to replace those guys. I think these guys have done a decent job so far and they will be fine with a little more time, and having Koch back will be a big boost. I like Nunn and although he's had some drops he seems to get open a lot and has made some good catches as well. I think he will be a big part of the offence one he has a bit more experience.
Actually, he's not. You might be mistaking him for one of Fairooz or Cetoute, the two other non-imports on the 9-game along with Bagg. But Sisco was on the 42 - never saw him on the field though and, if he was, never got a pass thown his way.
I think the riders have improved talent wise at the reciever position. Yes, you don't go out and replace Andy Fantuz. Yes, Rob Bagg is a speedster with great hands. But I think if the offence actually got to spend some time on the field instead of the D getting torched and playing forty minutes, it would be a different story. I think Nunn and Wheelwright have the potential to be very effective, if not stars in this league. Its just a matter of familiarity with the offence. Its plain to see that the new recievers are still making a lot of mistakes out there as far as route running, assignments, etc. Give it time. These guys are gonna light it up.
Fantuz was dropping EVERTHING when he first came into the league. Kent Austin benched him, and it worked. Sisco's time will come. One of the worst things you can do to a young reciever is just throw him out to the wolves.
