    I don't think we should have given up on him so early either; but either way, to paraphrase Einstein: "Insanity is doing the same thing repeatedly and expecting different results" as it applies to the jest fascination with our garbage like Gates, Turner, Bell, our inept OL coach and of course The Meatball. Hopefully Woody will retain both The Bean Counter and Toe Sucker to continue this helpful tradition.

    Gates is benefitting from being on a horrible Jets offense with worse depth then the Dolphins at WR.
    I dont think they have worse depth, They just lost their starter faster. If we had lost Bess sooner we would be in really bad shape.
    I mean look at the 66 yards we had from our wr's this week

    he had plenty of chances to do something here. they wanted him to step up so badly and he never rose to the occasion. that's on him.

    So we should cut egnew since u could say the same. Gates really wasnt used much last year. I hated the pick but if u take a guy that raw u have to figure he may not be ready

    It tells you how pathetic the Jets WR corps is. Gates is terrible. He'll be lucky to carve out a career with a Canadian team or with one of the indoor leagues.

    Ok. Moore beat out Gates so there's that. Wallace was hot garbage too but I don't see what your point is or how it relates to Gates being a sub par player.

    Look we needed a deep threat when we drafted Gates last year and we needed one this year. Gates did not contribute as a reciever last year granted but his kickoff returns I though were decent. IMO this kid may have the telent to play the game but not enough smarts to play in Shermans offense. Gates was not the only reciever to fall under that reciever catagory this year of not smart enough to play reciever for us. Has anybody kept a head count of the number of reciever we burned through this year?

    What does this tell you about our staff at least on the offensive side of the ball. What are your opinions for the coaching staff not being able to get this guy into our line up?
    I think it says more about our fans that when one player has one decent game they come running to Finheaven.com and start complaining about why we let the guy go. Like Anthony Armstrong when he was with Washington, Devin Aromashodu when he had two decent games with Chicago two years ago, Chad Henne when he had one good game this year with the Jags...it seems knee jerk reactions are the norm here.
