Like another poster put it. Fasano is like a fridge running routes. He's neither explosive or a playmaker. He's just a guy who matters 2 or 3 times a year.
Your response as simple minded as it is, is quite common. Its the same BS I heard when I advocated the replacement and upgrade of Channing Chowder. I heard from people like you, how his 100 tackles will be missed. How he got the defense lined up. How much he mattered at the little things. Where is that guy now? Where are his defenders? Well that guy is on radio and his defenders are in the 'common sense' crowd concering Fasano.
The common sense thing to do, and Ireland said as much, you upgrade the TE position.

Channing Crowder didn't retire because he lacked offers to come back. He was a free agent, took a year off because his first kid was being born, and then during that year off he started doing radio and liked it so much he decided he didn't want to come back to football. He lost his desire to play anymore. It happens.
You can re-sign Anthony Fasano if you like, but the cost is going to stretch right to the edge of his worth if not overstep it completely. I have no issue with letting him depart and then seeing if you can do better with someone else.
In the end, MIA did upgrade. All I'm advocating, is upgrade TE for this young kid. Give him someone dynamic. Thats all. Nothing more, nothing less.
And Crowder was a good tackler, but not a playmaker. That Tom Brady INT is the only play i remember him making. The problem with Crowder is that he ran his mouth, and for a player as average as he was, that was not a good look. Jeff Ireland certainly didnt appreciate it.
