It's a straightforward question--going into the season (assuming there is one), who wins the #1 receiver job? Candidates are listed in alphabetical order. (I realize that Chad may be gone, so if you think he will be, vote for one of the other guys.)
Here are some thoughts on each one.
Green: He has the raw talent, and he seems pretty polished to me, but the lockout may slow his development a little.
Ochocinco: Ugh. If he's #1, I don't think he'll earn it so much as win it by default. Unfortunately, we all know how Marvin prefers playing vets to rookies, whether it makes sense or not. I'm trying not to be biased, but, can we please trade him for a mid-round pick and a rotation DT?
Simpson: He's proven he can get it done against elite competition (Chargers, etc.), but how quickly can he learn the new playbook? The lockout isn't helping him, either.
