[QUOTE=genom;2937969]You have no idea what you're talking about.
1) For starters, the Cardinals do not run a 3-4. Gabe Watson is a fat slob and had a lot of character concerns coming into that draft. He did not start one game this entire year, that speaks volumes about the kind of player Gabe Watson is. Sione Pouha is better than Gabe Watson, and it's really not even a close comparison.
2) Where does Jared Allen fit in a base 3-4? He is 6'6 270 and is a tweener between a 3-4 DE and OLB. He was incredibly productive for 5 years as a 4-3 DE, and you're going to trade for a guy that probably has no desire whatsoever to be an OLB? I understand and accept that Gholston is a project at 3-4 OLB, but guess what, Allen would have been as well.
3) Ok receiving end? You are thoroughly out of your mind. Dustin Keller finished with 48 catches for 530 yards and 3 TD's. Let's compare that rookie year to the rookie year's of the best tight ends in the NFL.
PS: His blocking has improved.
Antonio Gates' rookie year: 24 for 389 with 2 TD's
Dallas Clark: 29 for 340 with 1 TD
Tony Gonzalez: 33 for 368 with 2 TD's[/QUOTE]
1 and 2) We'd be in the playoffs right now with Jared Allen and a 4-3 defense. Watson is a better player than Pouha, not to mention way better than scrubs that aren't on the team like Schegel or bums like Eric and Brad Smith who don't deserve to be on the team or the NFL for that matter.
3) Keller is a nice player but no way do him and Vernon the Ghost equal one Jared Allen. Wow, his blocking improved from terrible to just bad. You're a genius Genom. John Carlson was taken 8 spots after Keller (who btw, did nothing for us after the Denver game) actually had way better stats than Keller with 613 yds and 5 tds.
Eric Mangini had has hands in almost all of Mike T's moves. if Mangina goes than Mike T has to go to. Just like Bradway and Edwards were linked in 2005, same thing applies here.
