I had written my last post, on my thoughts about Greg Salas as a player, and how some people were calling him a "scrub" and basically a player with no potential to do well, and we should be lucky the Pats were stupid enough to try to trade for him, even if we only got a 6/7th round pick in 2015. At least that was what I understood. Also some people were accusing me of wanting to trade Amendola, instead keeping Salas. I am writing this post as my explanation for my last post.
My last post was just my thoughts on Greg Salas,and it was to show people how he wasn't as bad as some people thought. As I wrote in my previous post, his stats were on par, if not better, then other rookies selected above him, if you factor in he only played six games, and was learning a complex system and gelling with Sam Bradford as the season went by. My point was how people were judging him to early, and should give him a little more credit. He was a rookie last year, all rookies, especially WRs are not going to be great in their first year. I had mentioned trading Amendola,but perhaps I didn't explain my point properly. I was just stating that IF Greg Salas could do Amendola's role, IE, be a safety blanket (not right away, but eventually), then Amendola would fetch us more in a trade, giving us more value. Obviously, the FO didn't think he could fulfill that role. He also could have not been a scheme fit. All-in-all, my earlier post was not to fight against the trade, but rather, show people how Greg Salas is NOT a scrub, and how he should deserve SOME respect. And also to express how I felt the Ram got the shorter side of the stick in the trade, and should have tried for something a bit better.
I think with this I am done on this topic, what has been done, has been done. If he does do well in NE, I would be the first person to say "I told you so, nanananana"
