Gilyard the guy to replace Avery?

My man crush on Mardy Gilyard has been quite apparent -- it stems, quite stupidly, from his ridiculous talent on Madden '11 . Oh yes, and all the even more ridiculous things he did while at Cincinnati. Either way, though, I've felt like, since the Rams drafted him, that he could be a sleeper to have a big rookie season on a team that'll be chunking the ball a lot.

Turns out, with Donnie Avery now out for the entire 2010 season , he'll get his chance. That's according to Howard Balzer who says that Gilyard has "the chance to show he's more than just a slot receiver."

Laurent Robinson is probably the only other guy who could provide a "No. 1 wide reciever" presence for the Rams, and with he and Gilyard it's really more in the sense of having a warm body there than it is having a legitimate No. 1 wide receiver.

It's why at least gambling on Vincent Jackson -- or seeing if the Chargers are willing to let the Rams gamble on V-Jax anyway -- makes a little bit of sense for the Rams .

Unless they think -- and are correct -- that Gilyard (or Robinson) can be "the guy," in which case the Rams might still be able to exceed the (somehow even lower than they were two days ago) expectations that people have for them in 2010.
