If Gonzo ends up missing the full 6 weeks, how good will Wayne be?

First I'd like to say that Reggie owns the Jags. Second, Wayne had to carry much of the load in the passing game. I could see this having to continue.

This isn't the first time Wayne has had to step up once the receiver opposite him has gone down. When Marvin Harrison injured his knee against the Broncos in Week 4 of the 2007 season and effectively ended his season, and his career as the Marvin Harrison we all knew, Wayne stepped up big time. He recorded 7 or more receptions in 3 straight games and had 2 100 yard games to help extend the Colts' season-opening winning streak to 7-0. By the end of the year, #87 had a career high 104 receptions and a league leading 1510 receiving yards to go along with 10 touchdown receptions. 83 receptions, 1203 yards, and 7 touchdowns came after Harrsion was injured. Basically Wayne averaged nearly 7 catches and over 100 yards per game after Marvin went down. We all know Wayne is a Top 5, Top 3 depending on who you ask, Wide Receiver in the NFL. I know he can play at his '07 level while Gonzo is out and we will need him to be at that level for our offense to go back to being as productive as we are accustomed to. Especially consdering how young the receivers are opposite him. As I stated before, I know he can play at the same level he did in 2007. My question to everyone is, can he be better?
