  1. I don't think there's enough information to confidently project any of the 3 Colts WR's as the long-term starter opposite Reggie Wayne. At this point, I would value Garcon a little more than Gonzalez, with Collie trailing further behind. To me, Gonzalez looked very impressive in his first 2 years, and he will contend for a starting spot if healthy. However, I think there's a lot to be said for Garcon's opportunity to practice and play with the team for an entire season, especially if that season results in a championship. He has certainly had some bad drops and penalties, but he has shown improvement throughout the season. At the end of the day, that offense has needed a true deep threat ever since Marvin Harrison hit the wall, and Pierre Garcon is the closest thing they've got. Another thing to consider: Because the Colts don't huddle and substitute much within drives, they're not as likely to spread the receiving numbers around as a team like New Orleans, who rotates personnel packages frequently within a drive. The WR who wins the starting job during training camp stands a good chance of being on the field enough to put up big numbers. Remember, Reggie Wayne put up several 1K yard seasons playing across from Harrison, even with Dallas Clark and a receiving RB available to Manning.
