In Response to Re: WR in the AFC east who has the best receivers now! : The Colts have the most elite WRs in the league? Five years ago I might have agreed, but right now? What about New Orleans? Dallas? Baltimore even? All of these teams have the better, proven WRs on the depth chart. With Wes healthy I would put Pats ahead of Colts as well. Now this doesn't mean these teams automatically have a better passing attack, but if you were building your own team and could choose any of the WR corps from any of the 5 teams named, Colts would definitely not be your first choice.

You just did an entire post about rookies having to prove themselves, then you say Dallas has a top 5 WR unit? I'm assuming you are counting Dez Bryant into the equation because Roy Williams and Patrick Crayton are average WRs. Miles Austin showed promise last year, but he isn't one of the top 10 WRs in the NFL.
On Baltimore, I say no, Mason and Boldin are both possession receivers. Neither will stretch the field. I wouldn't put Baltimore ahead of any elite WR corps, like the Colts, Saints, Pats, Packers or Chargers.
On to the Pats, NO, Wes Welker will never be the Wes people remember. Count him out off all future games as a Pat. Edelman will be there to take his place.
On NO, not better than the Colts, either. They have good WRs, but after Colston, none of their WRs are elite. Henderson and Meachem are both products of their QB.
The Colts have, and will have until Clark retires, the best WR/TE combination in football in Wayne and Clark. People don't know his name, but Collie was the second best WR in his draft class. And Garcon, although he doesn't have the hands that Marvin Harrison had, can stretch the field as well as Marvin could. The Colts have the best, IMHO.
