    If you go back THAT FAR you are talking about after we lost the SB.

    Who are you gonna let from that roster to make room for Wallace's deal?

    Bear in mind guys like Harrison, Woodley, Troy, Ike, had great seasons. We had zero LBer, corner (Lewis and Allen have shown nothing), or safety depth. We keep Wallace two more seasons as WORST CASE SCENARIO.

    It is EASY with hindsight to make a call now. At THAT TIME? Not so easy.

    Just how valuable is Wallace anyway? He has YET to contribute to a championship.

    funny, just read your hindsight with the lee/worldis pick

    lol

    yeah, usually when a receiver is good enough and valuable enough to the team at RECEIVING . they take him off returner duties so he doesnt get up injured.

    like they did the following year when he was a starter. get it now?

    Difference is Lee was the better COLLEGE player. That call was made long BEFORE they stepped onto an NFL field. That is not hindsight my friend.
    What is funny is to make the case for Lee being injury prone (Which topic BTW I did not start)when WE TOOK a guy (Worilds) who cant be a healthy "backup" for being fragile.

    The only reason Brown got his is that we had NOBODY locked up when Wallace REFUSED to take more money.
    Had Wallace signed Brown would have never been signed so early, possibly not at all.

    so thats the reason we gave a guy with this as his resume

    2011 69 catches 1,108 yards 16.1 avg. 2 TDs 10.8 avg on 30 punt returns 27.3 avg on 27 kickoff returns
    2010 16 catches 167 yards 10.4 avg. 0 TDs 5.8 avg on 19 punt returns 23.4 avg on 17 kickoff returns


    $7M per year?


    probably would have been better off not signing either then. would have forced us to try and get a true #1 type receiver in the draft

    I have disagreed with MANY picks. Including spending 1st rounders on D-Ends in OUR defense.

    Now I completely miss the correlation between the linebackers and the receivers in question here. Many thought before the draft that Lee was better. I dare say most draftniks had Lee higher.
    I fail to see that relating to a receiver WE TRIED TO SIGN who refused to and SETTLING for another receiver.

    This is the problem NJ.
    No matter what we say, no matter the facts, you argue that Wallace was better yet we chose Brown.

    The facts do not support that the team chose Brown over Wallace. Very few here believe that. Those who do are ignoring the facts.

    High school dance. Girl 1 turns you down, you need to move on to girl two.

    Dont blame the dude who is doing the asking if you think girl one was finer.

    That is all it comes down to. It aint rocket science, really.

    I will be absolutely ELATED if Wheaton can match that.
    Wouldn't you?
