I really, really wish I was making this up.
Allow me to introduce the starting wide receivers for the Seahawks game against the 49ers this weekend:
Courtney Taylor - 5 receptions in 2007.
Billy McMullen - 45 receptions in 2003 - 2006.
Samie Parker - 110 receptions in 2004 - 2007.
Logan Payne - 0 receptions in the NFL.
They are replacing the following due to injuries.
Deion Branch - 315 receptions in 2002 - 2007, including Super Bowl MVP in 2004.
Bobby Engram - 598 receptions in 1996 - 2007.
Nate Burleson - 195 receptions in 2003 - 2007.
Ben Obomanu - 12 receptions in 2007.
Nate and Ben are gone for the year, and Bobby won't be back till October. We can only hope that Deion can get back on the field in the next two to three weeks.
