I thought he had been re-signed. My bad.
Thank God he didn't, dude is trash.
Winston was cut before free agency started.
So he was cut right at the same time. My mistake. Problem is two things a) He wanted $$$$ which we weren't going to give up and b) Garcon had told us he'd wait for us to figure out what we were going to do for our cap because he WANTED to play here. That right there is a keeper.
Where do you get this from? I'm sure watching him break a couple here and there may give that impression but Garcon's best season in that category was 2011 in which he ranked 30th. Garcon averaged about 5 yards after the catch so I wouldn't call that massive. He didn't even rank in the top 50 in the previous two seasons. Hopefully though as you pointed out the numbers are on the rise and he will be able to improve on that. The one positive I see from Garcon is that most of his catches result in 1st downs and moving the chains is huge.
Correct, probably shouldn't have used massive, but in comparison to our WR's of late, you could say that. Garcon is very fast and with RGIII, could be deadly. Think of him as the new Kendall Wright for Griffin.
Too bad they didn't have Dallas, and the NY teams scheduled for all 16 games. They may have finished the season 6-10 instead of 5-11. They definitely need to address the RT position. This idea of picking certain outings in which they did OK to delude themselves into thinking all is OK with the unit is part of the reason this team has been so bad for so long.
The really only bad game they had was Buffalo, but even then that was more because of Beck being lost. Grossman holding on to the ball too much also made a big impact. Can't block forever. Not to mention if the WR's just give up on the routes.
The team would have finished better than 6-10, the Eagles game at Fedex and both Dallas games should have been wins if it weren't for Rex. Making us 8-8. Even if you take one of the Dallas games away or the Philly game, were still talking 7-9. Not a huge improvement, but still improved.
Point is, most of our troubles was at QB, either forcing the ball into areas for INT's, or holding on too long.
Brown should be good at RT. He couldn't afford the $5,000 a month health care to get healthy with the stuff he had to take. He was able to do that this year and should be back 100%. For who all was out there and the $$$ they wanted, it was cheaper in the long run to keep Brown.
We still have Hurt who could play there if needed, plus the draft is coming up.
Remember, this isn't the 80's anymore. This is a passer league. You need a QB to succeed. Not saying you totally forget about the line, but it's not as much of a necessity as it once was.
