"Now when I go to the bathroom I find out who my friends are." - Jake Scott after both broken hands were in casts following the 1972 season
Besides the fact that he seems to get tackled by phantom contact I really like Hartline. If you watched the tape this year teams always had help over the top for him. He isn't a number 1 but he got covered like one this year and still finished with some very good numbers. I think we should trade Bess, sign Jennings and draft a receiver like Allen. Hartline, Jennings and Allen are a good core. Then it would allow us to double up on TE this year with Eifert (trade up) and Jordan Reed. That would be a damn good receiving core.
Jennings had injuries, Bowe had bad QB's, and Wallace held out. Doesn't matter Hartline will be back and we need one of these guys on the opposite side.
Only Dolphin fans could look at a 1,000 yard receiver and say he sucks and act like anyone proclaiming he has value is an idiot. You don't have to be a TD machine to be a useful offensive piece. In all likelihood I see us bringing in someone else and Hartline moving on, but Hartline is probably going to pull a Welker and have a number of good seasons in an offense with more talent on the field.
Hartline is a good-average player and that's are problem we just have a bunch of good-average players and we need some great impact players...but he does do a good job between the 20s and he should have a place on our team as a complementry player not as a go to guy like he was this year
As Dave Hyde wrote after the game. Hartline may have been auditioning for Bellicheck. He's exactly the type of player the Pats covet. Hard working and intelligent.
Welker didn't score much as a phin either.
Insanity is the pursuit of a delusion at all cost. Sanity is the pursuit of reality at all cost.
I'll take Jennings and Keenan Allen.
The reason we want him to walk is because if we go get Jennings, we wont be able to afford more receivers other than in the draft. So we want Jennings more.
besides, if you get more WR/TE's going in this offense it would stand to reason he would score more TD's. Hartline dives for balls and is great at the sideline, but he catches alot of those balls that others cannot. He also was double covered yesterday and still burned them. Hartline is one guy I would not mind overpaying for a little if neccessary because BB has his eye on him. take it to the bank.

This is the biggest problem with fantasy football. People spend more time checking out NFL.com's stats site than actually watching the games. I don't want to get rid of Hartline, but if you think Hartline is anywhere near the WR any of those other three are, you don't have the slightest clue what you're talking about.
