Dunta Robinson on Jaguars WRs: '[bleep]ing jokes'

During Thursday's 41-14 loss, like much of the 2011 season, the Jaguars struggled to move the ball against the Falcons because Blaine Gabbert couldn't get the ball down the field. Part of that is Gabbert, but a bigger part of that might be a lack of wide receiver options available to Gabbert on Jacksonville's roster.

Falcons cornerback Dunta Robinson would lean towards the latter and, in fact, he thinks that the current Jags receivers are "[bleep]ing jokes."

"Those guys are [bleep]ing jokes," Robinson said per Vito Stellino of The Florida Times-Union. "Those guys couldn’t get a [bleep]ing receiver if it hit them in the head."

Ouch. Robinson added that the Jaguars "haven't had anyone decent since Jimmy Smith."

That part is actually true -- the Jags leading pass-catchers since Smith retired in 2005 are Matt Jones (2006, 643 yards; 2008, 761 yards), Reggie Williams (2007, 629 yards), Mike Sims-Walker (2009, 869 yards), Mike Thomas (2010, 820 yards) and Marcedes Lewis (2011, 415 yards).

If you're looking for a description of "a motley crew," this is pretty much it, and that doesn't even take into consideration that a) Lewis is a tight end and b) Jones and Williams were monumentally busty first-round picks, one of whom is retired and one of whom is politely referred to as "currently a free agent."

So, yes, the Jaguars desperately need a talented wide receiver. But given the other problems they have on their roster, it seems more likely that they'll pursue on in free agency -- Vincent Jackson, DeSean Jackson and Dwayne Bowe will all be unrestricted this year -- instead of reaching for one in the first round.

Maybe then Dunta Robinson will be happy.

Dunta Robinson on Jaguars WRs: '[bleep]ing jokes'

As a Bears fan its hard to say we have a competent WR.  Bennett and Knox are okay but barely #2s.  I'd take Thomas and Decker from Denver any day on the squad and they could be our #1.

Denver has good recievers so jacksonville. Jacksonville or Tampa Bay is a better question

I agree 100 % with Dunta Robinson. After Jimmy Smith and Keenan Mcardell left/retired name one big time reciever for the Jaguars? During his tenure at Qb, who did David Garrard have to throw to?....Torry Holt?, past his prime along with a bunch of #4 and 5 recievers

Denver or Jacksonville, who has the least WR talent?  Every other NFL team has at least one competent receiving option.
