I don't understand that either. I've been saying Moss has been money for us since we acquired him. Of course last season was one of his less productive ones, he was injured for what? A month or more? In which case Gaffney HAD to step up and be the #1, we had no one else. I understand that Moss is old but so is Gaffney.

Apparently 1 productive season is worth more than several years worth in these parts. I'm not saying Moss is far superior, but he's equal if not a bit better than and if anyone should be dumped, it should be both of them.

Jabar Gaffney might not be a #1 receiver, but at times he played like it last year. The guy was money. I've always been a fan of Gaffney. Look for Gaffney to be open underneath all season long while Garcon and Moss go deep.

Some fans are so enamored with their visions of how our team should be built (draft and sign nothing but offensive linemen, skill position players should all be 'young and hungry', any free agent we spend on is wasted money) that they will take the contrary view of all activity that falls outside their opinion on principle.

Gaffney is the perfect example of acceptance of mediocrity. He's been a Redskin for one year, had an average (if that) year for an NFL WR and at 31 has limited upside, but since we spent money on WR and not OL in free agency he's a wounded hero and must be defended.

For me it's more Gaffney by default, not it terms of Gaffney v Moss (because I think we should keep both), because he has experience in the system and performed well last year in pretty lousy circumstances i.e. Rex/Beck and no real WR threat playing opposite. Garcon is new to the system, as is Morgan but he's also coming off injury. Add in Hankerson's injury and I actually won't be surprised if Moss and Gaffney are Griffin's main WR targets to start the regular season.

I don't get the Madden mentality you can just plug flashy new FA WRs into a new system w/ a new QB and wham you have instant chemistry. I hope that happens, just don't believe it to be likely.

Is Moss able to turn back the clock as well? How did his hand injury last year prevent him from gaining YAC and separation from CB and LB? We need to realize that Moss isn't a 28 year old burner anymore. He's more likely (even if healthy) to be a 3rd receiver than one of the top 2 WR on the team.

Our most explosive receiving weapons should be:
Garçon
Hankerson
Davis
Morgan
Cooley/Moss
Gaffney
Paul

And if we're talking in terms of mobility, Moss is better, with a 42 vertical against Gaffney's 34. So the size thing is kinda... moot?

Granted those numbers are old.

Wait a minute, wtf. Both of these guys are old! Isn't it bad when we have to decide which old guy to keep?!

Maybe in 2013...although Hankerson's health/durability is such a big question ? at this point I can't imagine the FO sees it this way. Using most our FA $ on WRs would be pretty irrational if Bruce/Mike/Kyle thought Hank was going to make an impact this season.
