Garcon and Gonzo Compete

From Indy Star:

QUESTION: How do you feel the Colts will work the rotation at the wide receiver position? Are we looking at more four wide sets? Who has the hot hand? How do you see the number of reps each game for Pierre garcon, Anthony Gonzalez and Austin Collie?
— from Dann Giszewski, Mishawaka, IN

ANSWER: There’s no question in my mind the most interesting area for training camp will be wide receiver. This has the potential to be one of the deepest groups, if not the deepest group, the Colts have had. My current pecking order has Reggie Wayne and Pierre Garcon being the outside starters with Anthony Gonzalez ahead of Austin Collie as the slot receiver. I just like the deep speed Garcon provides on the outside, even though I really like Gonzo’s after-the-catch skills. Gonzo said he’s been assured by the coaching staff that he’ll be given an opportunity to compete with Garcon for the No. 2 spot alongside Wayne. We’ll see how that shakes out. One thing to keep in mind is you also have to figure Dallas Clark into the rotation. As I mentioned, a very, very deep and talented group. Somebody’s playing time is going to diminish, and my hunch is it will be Collie. Again, just a hunch.
