Difference here is that Hurney grossly overpaid for our RBs (who then suffered from a crappy OL, poo coaching and injuries). Gettleman simply tagged an elite DE to keep the core together and to give Ealy time to adjust.
 
I don't see your point at all.


13 mil to help our weaknesses. It's not really that hard to understand.

There were a lot of tackles that went to other teams.

Protecting your franchise QB is more important than keeping a luxury player at DE.

Then you assume too much. The WR market was filled with guys like Decker who got overpaid. What? You think an extra 13 million would have persuaded Nicks to join us after taking less with The Colts?

 

The fact is we're repeating what got us to the dance in the first place. Defense, possession, and the run game.

I hope that the best situation for Greg pans out, whether it be in Carolina or somewhere else.

He went from a top 10 lock to a 5th round pick to a part of one of the most dominant DLs in the league.

Decker is a poor example.  He only got $15M guaranteed.  The Jets can walk away from that contract after two years with no penalty.  They got a good deal on Decker.

In case you didn't notice, our pass blocking was poo last year too. Thus we adapted to defenses blitzing.

yeah, having 18mil tied up in rb's and a lb year after year isn't the same as keeping much more than a luxury in Hardy for 1 year..

 

 

the only spot I'm really concerned with is LT..  we'll have to see how that shakes out.  If they get some picks for Hardy then that's a major plus..
