He offered to take AE off our hands if we also threw in our 3rd rounder.

I think Hurney will bite.

I know this is meant to be joke, but what's done is done.

I disagree with what Hurney did because AE is such a project, but I think he has a chance to be better than what people think. He is such a tremendous athlete that I think down the line (2 years from now), he can be a weapon.

And that's where it will matter most, because I think this team is a 2-3 year project.

how can u make judgement on armanti after 1 season, he did not get to play much and was forced to learn an entirly different position. You guys had a hard on for Jarret for 2 years before u turned on him.

I think its hard to make a judgement, but considering he hasn't played a meaningful snap, as fans you have to be open to the possibility of him being a contributor.

That's why people who bash the trade are jumping to rash statements when he was a rookie, learning a new position, with a rebuilding team.

this will make it worth while.. if he is a dangerous weapon (and it's possible) I'll be okay with it.. if he turns out to be Ryne Robinson, then we definitely lost out.. big.

but there is no doubt, he has huge upside.. and to judge him after this year is really f**king stupid.. If anyone thinks this year is all Edwards will ever be is being entirely too short sighted..

and so Zod's plan here has succeeded...

Hurney felt guilty and also included a 5th in the deal.
Said: "I like to be able to sleep at night.".

am i the only person that's not seen much of this 'athleticism' everyone keeps harping on? i know he hasn't shown much in the NFL... but athleticism in college does not always translate

i'd love for him to be the next SS, and am willing to wait on him to progress, but so far i've seen nothing that screams 'freak athlete' like some people preach on here

Very much a valid point. I would not say "freak athlete" to describe Armanti Edwards. He's fast and has great vision. You can see that in his college tape when he pulls down the ball and finds open seams to run through. As a natural Moose possesion type receiver, I don't think that type of athleticism will translate well. But for a Wes welker slot receiver type role, where he can use his speed, quickness, and vision to find soft spots, that may be a possibility.

Bottom line: I think he has tremendous upside, and potential that might not be reached for another 3 years or so. But if you look at the big picture, I think this team is going to be ready to seriously compete in 2-3 years, and if that's when he blossoms into a contributor, it could be perfect timing.

the reason why armanti is hated so much is because the price we paid for him was too much

it's clearly his fault that we reached for him and this season is all on him

we should have won the superbowl THIS YEAR if we traded up to get what we think will be a dual-no possible triple threat for us in the next two years.

every player in the league is supposed to produce year one

there is no such thing as a project

since AE is obviously a complete failure we should dump him asap

Interesting thought, what would Belichick do with AE?

I think AE still has a chance to be special. In his limited action, and touches I have seen a good burst of speed and some elusiveness.

Not sure if you meant that to be sarcastic, but I would say I completely disagree.

My analogy is a high school football team. Do you really expect freshman to come in and play right away on varsity, let a lone play well? It takes time to learn the ways, get your body in the right shape, etc.

I don't understand what's so different between his "athleticism" and any number of returners/raw receivers we could have had in the 4th and up rounds.

Not only that, can you detect sarcasm at all?

As for AE, I say give him another year developing at WR, but until then he looks like he will follow the likes of Dexter Jackson. Practice squad fodder then eventual release. Though, I think AE has more talent, the only way we will get anything from him is if he is used like Brad Smith is for the Jets. Still surprised Hurney is keeping his job after such a horrible pick. Sorry I could keep rambling on how much I hate AE, but dinner is done:cool:
