Color me pink

Great, I go away for a few days, and come back to find that Pinky's out for the season? Hell, I know he's weak, but this will just make T.O. think he has more leverage. (Multiples of zero are still zero, though).

So has anyone heard of Chris Samp, the free agent rookie they brought in after Pinky's injury? According to Les Bowen from the Daily News, he has 4,471 receiving yards on 222 catches at Winona State (in Minnesota), which ranks him second in Division II history.

But what's the consensus here? Is Pinky's injury a good thing? On one hand, he's weak, can't (or won't) go over the middle, and gets cramps almost monthly. On the other hand, except for T.O. who can't be depended upon right now (even just to sign autographs), we really only have Greg Lewis -- because Reggie Brown still needs time to learn, McMullen is big but has hands as soft as The Thing, and Jenkins is untested. Are there any real No. 1 recievers we could snatch at this point?

I think it's a good thing, although it will take a while for that to show. As you guys know, I've never liked Pinky, Trash or FredEx and now they're all gone - time to evolve the passing game. Those guys receivers were holding McNabb back. We have some guys waiting in the wings who will need to step up but we also need to comb the market for a trade or something - I'd like to see TO go and get a second tier receiver in their, like a Reggie Wayne or Jerry Porter type.

Jerry Porter would be huge. He is a great receiver and a great guy to have around the locker room. Class all the way

But also not an option, from what I've read.

Its not an option at this point, but with Moss in Oaktown now, who knows what the future will be for Porter?

They just gave Porter a signing bonus this year, which from a cap stand point cant be transferred fromt eam to team, which is why you rarely see player trades in the nfl, especially, just into a new contract.

True, but throw out all logic when dealing with Al Davis
