A strong sign we have not improved, is the same tired threads on the forum every year.
And when the **** did anybody say we didn't need anymore WRs. Making **** up I see.
Deshaun Watson is the TRUTH!
Now that hartline is our #1 Wr we should not even waste money for big name Wr in the offseason
So if AJ Green has less than 40 yards receiving this week does that make Sean Smith a shut down corner all of a sudden?
And since you're insisting Hartline is a number 1, please tell us what kind of contract you would give him if you were in Ireland's shoes.
He had a great game and now people are going to start to notice him. Zona came out and said "they have no one to beat us deep, so we are going to play the short routes and dare them to beat us". Hartline beat the soft defense because they didn't respect him, lets see him do it for the rest of the season. Don't get me wrong, Hartline is a solid #2 WR but he isn't a #1, and never will be.
#2 Did you see the last two pro-bowlers contract this team negotiated? Solia was thought to be a goner because he was going to warrant to big of a contract. And all Ireland did was resign him to a fair and modet contract for his position. How bout Cam Wake? How well balanced was that contract for both parties. Look, I get it, you people think Ireland is a bafoon, but for every scenario you want to claim he failed I can name plenty more where he succeed it. With that being said, I expect him to sing Hartline to a fair contract based on just 4 games output. Now, if I were Hartline, I wouldn't sign Ireland's contract right now, I would wait to see if I can continue to ride this gravy train and maybe I can sucker him for more money..
Sometimes, I wonder to some of yall really pay any attention to this team, or because we have sucked so bad, there's never anything positive to ever take out of our management, like signing two of the best Defense of lineman's to contract's no one thought they would ever agree to.
