We are LOADED. There is simply no room for them.
Sure, you can cherry pick a few picks here and there with 20/20 hindsight, and maybe they would have contributed more this year, but don't forget about the future. Moss, Manningham, Crabtree, these WR's might seek places that are itching to throw them the ball. Jenkins will fit right in next year.
LMJ's can't displace Hunter? Surprise surprise. Hunter was an EXCELLENT pick two years ago.
You see, the problem with drafting great, is that is leaves no room on the roster for future draft picks. So you have to decide. Either complain about this years draft picks, or celebrate the fact that previous years picks have left no space on the team.
LMJ should be able to displace Dixon and a 6 week injured Jacobs
Gore does not play on special teams.
Hunter does not play on special teams as a tackler or blocker.
These are the guys LMJ would have to replace.
Dixon is big and athletic like a linebacker; he is a very good special teams player. That is why he "beats" out LMJ for active duty. LMJ has no place tackling people on special teams, he is not built for it. We are already hurting for special teams players. We lost two very good ones from last year. Losing Dixon would make things even harder.
Maybe we could replace Hunter with LMJ for a game, but I'm not sure how happy that would make Hunter, when you consider how good he has been this year.
