Bell, Landry,Schillens were all 1yr deals. What has happened this week is nothing new..
And yes, Idzik has yet to trade away any draft picks, he's only been permitted to do so since Tuesday, congrats!
People knock the trading away picks, yes for Tebow it was stupid (Rex was in on the trade too), but people never mention the picks used for Edwards (3rd & 5th plus garbage players), Cro (2nd round), Holmes (5th)..Bad trades? And yes, Rex was also in on those moves..
Not knocking Idzik, like his hire alot, but everyone is in the "new guy" is great mode.
And as much as people hate to admit it, the Sanchez trade was a steal as well.
Not liking the player is different from the terms of the trade. For the most part Tanny never got fleeced like the Jets did for Dwayne Robertson. I didn't like that trade from the outset and wish I hadn't been so right. But for the most part I didn't mind Tanny's trades (and actually liked quite a few of them). Just because they didn't pan out the way we wanted doesn't mean they weren't a good idea at the time . . .
