In response to Salcon's comment:
I'm with cynical and catfish on this one.
If DA can be healthy for the last half or third of the season and into the playoffs and he makes those catches in critical situations like WW seemed unable to do then it will have been worth it.
Gronk should or may be back next weekend.
The rooks should get better as the season goes on. Will they be playing like polished vets? Ofcourse not. They're still rookies and will be all season. If they can contribute some each game and I think they will, great.
Vereen will be back in about ten weeks.
DA back in six weeks or less, hopefully.
I thought the thinking was that it's not how you start but how you finish this season.
You know, like Balt. last season and the Giants the season before. Go into the last month and postseason fairly healthy.
Now everyone seems panicked. Not willing to ride out the storm.
No, if you look at it, it is really only a few people are panicked. They just like to start multiple threads (about ten or twenty each) declaring their panic!
And I'm with the majority on this one. You can't tell if it payed off till they get to the playoffs and see if Amendola can make the pressure catches Welker couldn't.
