Just a thought.

After repeated sub-par performances by our first-round pick, and our failure on special teams to consistently bring the ball past our own 20-yard-line, I believe we can kill two birds with one stone.

If Chaz Schillens returns this week, or hell, if he doesn't, put our above-pictured speed demon back to return beside Higgins.  Have Higgins catch the ball and hand it to DHB, then lead block for him on returns.  That should get us past the 20, and maybe make it seem as though our first-rounder isn't a complete waste. 

On the receiver side of things, put in Murphy and Schillens on the edges, and Walker or Watkins in the slot.  That gives us at least three sure-handed guys to throw to providing Miller plays.  If JaMarcus can't produce in an environment like that over the course of a couple of weeks, then I think it would be fair to say, he is not NFL-caliber. 

I am still on board the Raider Train, although it seems to have lost it's steam.  Here's to shoveling the coal into the burner!
