Re: Jabar Gaffney Told to Seek A Trade

I wonder if we could trade Gafney and 4th round pick for C.J, Spiller

^ We would do that but the Bills would be stupid to.

Re: Jabar Gaffney Told to Seek A Trade

There's a pretty significant lesson in this Gaffney deal to take away, which is that the Shanahan's feel that getting rid of last year's leading receiver is no big deal because his production was entirely a function of the offensive system.

To an extent, I think they're right: I didn't love the Jabar Gaffney acquisition, though I felt it was a trade they could very easily win (and remember how they couldn't figure out where to put Jeremy Jarmon in the 3-4 even given a season). Gaffney did exactly what was needed of him here last year.

It is hardly shocking given the stopgap nature of the acquisition that the Redskins are willing to give him away after a season, even considering how well he played. But what's shocking here is the utter lack of respect for his contributions. It's pretty jarring when a team moves it's top returning receiver and laughs it off as no big deal. With the Redskins, I'm not sure where they've earned the benefit of the doubt on personnel moves like this one.

With that said, this has nothing to do with his Tweet-fest. He was pretty clearly the odd man out of the rotation, as he got dropped from first to third string by the offensive acquisitions. This was calculated the entire offseason: the anticipation being they could trade him on draft day. I think the Twitter rant was just ill-timed re: his trade value. Gaffney has been on the block all along. Now the Redskins are just willing to take less.

******

This post in short: Gaffney was leading receiver, now odd man out. Reflective of Redskins as an organization. Whether good or bad is entirely dependent on perspective.

Pretty soon we'll have the old "I hope he stays in the division so he can show the Skins up" lines coming out.

Re: Jabar Gaffney Told to Seek A Trade

lol you'd think we were trying to replace Jerry Rice or something.

When your leading WR doesn't even hit 1000 yards, is on the wrong side of 30, and doesn't offer much as far as YAC or making big plays, the team would be foolish to not try to upgrade.

If Davis didn't get suspended, he would have definitely led the team in most receiving categories. I wonder what this conversation would look like now if that happened.

Does this go
for Garcon/Hankerson/Morgan this upcoming year? Or do we just take whatever production they give and live with it so long as they are under 30?

of course you look at the entire, bigger picture at the end of the year, but I will say if Morgan matches Jabars numbers....we are in the playoffs and RG3 is ROY.

Or we could just use a 4th or 5th round pick on Chris Rainey and still have Gaffney to move for another late round selection.

Hmmm mmmm.

For the Gaffney trade/cut to prove justifiable Garcon must (significantly) outperform himself up to this point in his career. He must break 1000+ yds, score 8+ TDs and contribute consistently. If he does not we have yet another major personnel gaffe by this FO.

Idk about that, I'm not setting these high benchmarks for Garcon like you are. If Garcon's production matches or exceeds Gaffney's production, I think that makes it a win for us. What if Garcon put up the exact same stats as Gaffney last year, yet all of our other receivers/TE's put up better stats as a result of our new qb acquisition. Would you still call Garcon a failure then?
