Malcolm Mitchell's place

During last night's game, when I wasn't just generally losing my mind over the widespread ridiculousness on display, I found myself wondering where Malcolm Mitchell's proper place is in our lineup.

After we pushed the ball to him early on offense, he disappeared, other than to make another bad punt return decision. Meanwhile our receiving corps doesn't seem to need his help. Tavarres King and Michael Bennett are making plays, and we've got Marlon Brown and Rantavious Wooten as the next options at wideout.

Not too shabby.

Now, obviously Mitchell is talented enough to crack right back into that lineup and play a prominent roll. I hate it for whoever that costs time, but that's football, and we're running enough four and even five wide sets to get everyone snaps.

But ask yourself: Do you feel more comfortable about Rantavious Wooten / Marlon Brown as the third receiver on the field, or about Branden Smith as one of your starting corners?
