That being said he needs to move on from the Skins. He isn't what we need and all the acrimony around Coles and him makes it best if eh leaves anyways.
I realize a 3rd rounder is not likely to yield a superstar. For every Laveraneus Coles (3rd rounder) there are 10 Cliff Russells. But $2 million is a lot more expensive than $380K, more than 5 times.

Besides, whoever said we'd take a WR with that 3rd rounder? You can get good players in the 3rd round at lots of positions, Chris Cooley comes to mind.

The pick we get in return for Gardner isn't even the main benefit from trading him though. The main benefit is the cap room we'll save. That's why we should be happy with a 3rd rounder, anything higher than that is completely unrealistic.

Sorry, meant to say inconsistent.

Re: Heath Miller-Trade up question

I agree. In our offense, when we pass the ball, the most important thing is that their route running is accurate, and that they catch the ball. In an error free offense like Gibb's wants, they have to catch the ball. And route running is important, because Patrick needs to know where they will be before he releases the ball. It's about timing in successfull offenses.

yea and even though they may be short routes. they set up very good 3rd and shorts. if the guys would just catch the ball than who knows how good this offence could have been

Re: Heath Miller-Trade up question

third and shorts are a joke if you have a solid line and a receivers that can turn around and catch the ball efficiently.
