    You mean when he made the Pro Bowl... twice?

    You can get a WR in free agency. Many teams get by with 1 better than average WR and 3-4 average to below average WRs. With Burton / Robinson on one side as the possession receiver, Avery in the slot and that free agent on the other side, they could be an average type of WR corp.
    Truth is, most teams don't acquire top WRs through FA. Sure, you can pick up a decent guy, but the true great ones (apart from the problem child TOs of the world) are not typically allowed to depart via FA.

    Montana, Marino, and Elway came into the league more than 25 years ago. The Jets would have made the playoffs last year if they had the brains to acknowledge Favre's injury and bench him; this is hardly a bad situation to throw a young QB into. The Falcons had a very good supporting cast with a strong running game. Meanwhile how many other failed rookie QBs have there been where teams went QB first, then build everything else?

    Did you hit your head and lose your short term memory? The Patriots have made a dynasty from trading and they did again this year. By the way, trade means not only draft picks, but getting experienced players as well. Didn't the Eagles just do that with us? Minus two more points for you. Most of the significant moves in the last two years have been trades, not free agency.
    Why should we load up on late round picks? We need better talent than that. Additionally, no vet in their right mind is going to want to come to Alcatraz, Missouri, in a trade.

    Spags had a hand in recommending to the front office to pick up Long? Really? Devaney was not in charge of the 2008 draft. Minus three additional points for you.


    Billy Devaney was the Vice President in charge of Pro Personnel at the time of the draft, and said 2008 Draft was his direct responsibility. So yeah, Long was his call. As was Avery, and King, and Burton, and steroids dude. Why are we giving this guy more picks?

    Who said stockpiling first round picks? Upgrade positions of need with veteran talent or promising young talent, and get later round picks with these trades. That's minus 10 point there fella. Get back to me when you're solvent.
    See above.
