Wow, a whole ONE sack? Better cut him now, I guess.
Yeah for 0 yards. He didn't look great, but he was playing with backup lineman, and he doesn't have much experience. Vlad actually was helping him out with the protections which was nice to see. Smith looked pretty good for being thrown to the wolves. I think he'll be a really good pick up here when it all shakes out.
Unless a surprise WR becomes available, or the team considers pursuing a good player through a trade, nobody on waivers will unseat our top 4 WR's, Holmes, Hill, Schilens, Kerley
The only thing that's going to unseat Shilens from his wheelchair is taking away all guarantees and reducing his pay to zero if he doesn't play 16 full games. He's a worse malingerer than that damn Miami tackle we almost choked on!
He's an average player that became overrated because of his great performance in the Super Bowl (probably the best game he's played in his life). Because he hasn't ever been able to replicate that performance, there was a severe backlash which has now made him underrated.
He's never had a 1,000 yard season and he's never caught more than 5 TDs in a season. It's ridiculous that anyone ever considered him to be a great player. He's average.
we could really use an average receiver right now. Just like I'd be happy to add Jabar Gaffney, I'd also be happy to add Deion Branch. Our WRs suck, and these average players are better than the crap that's on the roster right now.
Patriots pick up all of our leftover DB"s Cole, Hed, then went after Ellis. Even got Woodhead ... They obviously picked up our defenders to learn more about our defense. Lets get Branch and learn more about the offense. How the hell does a back up QB know more than someone who was in the huddle with these guys in big moments. Get Branch if anything for a better understanding of everything they do. Hell ... That's why they keep getting our DB's ... Weren't they trying to trade for Lowery too? ... Put a Jet uniform on Branch. A. we can use him .. B. for the X's and O's purposes
