Part of being a better player is being able to..you know..being healthy enough to actually play. AE is a better player right now, according to Gettleman and Rivera. Its a fact.


Health is key. That is true. So is performance. Armanti may have the edge on health, not performance. Again Gettis' health was Armanti's salvation. A healthy Gettis would not be waived.

From everything we know, Armanti has outperformed Gettis this offseason. Is that because Gettis isn't healthy? Does it matter since he will never be as "healthy" as he was in 2010? Who cares what Gettis could have been. He didn't become what he could have been, he became what he is now. Perpetually injured and didn't bother to shore up his skills and mental game enough to still contribute.

Let's talk about how much time Gettis has missed over the years.

 

Ok let's talk about it and how many catches AE racked up during that time.

So now we get to use ancient history accomplishments to support current personnel decisions?

Jake went to a Pro Bowl and a Super Bowl, but you said we held on to him too long.

Gettis was good 3 years ago maybe we are taking your advice and parting with players who are no longer playing well despite what they did three years ago.

Edit: and yes the comparison is stupid, it was meant to be stupid. It was as stupid as using stats from three seasons ago to justify keeping a player today.

 

Yes Gettis was OK 3 years ago and AE has never been good. So where does that leave us??

It passes the time better than waiting to see if we claimed anyone off wires. And Zod gets some traffic. Win win!

Whats your point? They shouldn't go with who they think is the better player because they have been wrong before? What does that even mean?

 

No my point is we don't have to be Robots and agree with every decision they make.

 

This staff hasn't earned the right to not be questioned.

Armanti outperformed Gettis? Yeah.. no. Armanti improved slightly. Again. Armanti's a lucky guy. From now on, he better do something. His price tag alone should make everyone livid it has taken him this long to become slightly above mediocre. Other QB/WR projects made strides faster at a lower price tag. which is why I do not comprehend babying nature some of you have for him. In my opinion, he would not make anyone elses roster as a WR. Hypothetical statement, I know.

Come on folks... Gettis should had been gone last year at this time!!! The reason he wasn't was because we didn't have Ginn & Hixon. He's been a bust!

We also know that Armanti only played in 1 preseason game and still hasn't proven he can play against competition not on his team.

Even in the game Armanti had 2 catches, Gettis had 3. Playing better is not in the equation, because he just has not.

 

Practiced better? Sure. Played better? Not even close.
