Re: Eagles solve WR problems

I guarantee that they will sign Jacobs if he is released. They love signing Skins.

Re: Eagles solve WR problems

Here are Gaffney's stats compared to some of the big name receivers that were on the market.

2005 Pittsburgh Steelers 16 15 35 558 15.9 63 1 10 3 23

Givens:
2002 New England Patriots 12 0 9 92 10.2 30 1 1 0 4
2003 New England Patriots 13 5 34 510 15.0 57 6 9 2 24
2004 New England Patriots 15 12 56 874 15.6 50 3 13 3 47
2005 New England Patriots 13 10 59 738 12.5 40 2 9 1 32

Jurevicius:
1998 New York Giants 14 1 9 146 16.2 59 0 2 1 6
1999 New York Giants 16 1 18 318 17.7 71 1 3 2 12
2000 New York Giants 14 3 24 272 11.3 43 1 2 1 17

2002 Tampa Bay Buccaneers 15 3 37 423 11.4 26 4 4 0 24
2003 Tampa Bay Buccaneers 5 2 12 118 9.8 22 2 1 0 9
2004 Tampa Bay Buccaneers 10 3 27 333 12.3 42 2 5 1 15
2005 Seattle Seahawks 16 11 55 694 12.6 52 10 9 1 39

A one year deal and I assume its cheap. Not that bad to be honest. THeir receivers can't shake a stick at us but gaffney comes from a POS team. Brandon Lloyd also comes from a POS team. The thing that impresses me about Brandon is that he did very well compared to his teammates. Looking at his numbers in comparison you can see that he had 2x more than any other player on his team receiving. That is not common. Moss did not have 2x cooley. Only 4 other players could say that they had 2x the amount of yards receiving than anyone on their team. All four of those can also say they have been to a pro bowl in the past two years.

Enough about Lloyd, I think Gaffney is a solid pick up. Their receivers suck but Gaffney is a good investment. They might strike gold...

What a copycat. No, Im just kidding. Did anyone else notice that they also got Jeff Garcia? I think thats a prett big pickup as a backup, because we all know first hand that all of their backups were second rate citizens. Im definitely not saying that Jeff Garcia is the answer, but he can handle the ball a bit bitter than McMahon or Detmer.

Gaffney is solid. He is no Lloyd.

Maybe he meant Geena Davis...She's 6', maybe she could be that possession receiver we apparently are sorely lacking!
