AB, what can I say, except that you write the ONE MOST INFORMATIVE and thot provoking threads of anybody in the zone. Marvin's stuff is read by all and are excellent. Your posts are truly the best anywhere. Again, a lot of work, and thank you a ton.
Harvin: valuewise your point hits home, he would be the choice if we are going big impact , maybe SB winning type impact. I love his play. This has already been said, but missing 7 games, (or was it 9?) with migraines, etc, to me means don't do it.
Just imagine, we need Harvin for this one game, and he's doubled over holding his head...and coaches have virtually no way to prevent this. If we are going to get an impact D or O (revis or harvin), jeez, let's not do it with the knowledge that for our 3 or 4 biggest games of the yr, maybe he can't make it due to migraines. I've treated many of them over the yrs and there is NO Rx for migraines that just "takes them away". Nothing you can do preventitively, and once they happen, our guy is down for the count. Sure , there are lots of treatments, but none would get our guy onto the playing field without being nauseated and seeing double. Dealwise, this makes the most sense, in bang for our buck. With this particular health issue, I would say it precludes us from signing him, no matter how good the deal would be for us. Great potential, but when your guy can't go, that potential isn't worth diddly. And I DO like him. This particular ailment should be a no brainer, "don't do it
As for Revis, it is just incredibly hard for me to imagine our GM/HC bringing up the dump truck full of $$ and putting them on Revis's plate. It would screw up our incredibly well fashioned cap and would make for discontent thruout the team, with one then another all pro demanding more money. How many times have we seen this on other teams? Right, many. I just don't see that happening here unless as mentioned, Revis wants a ring and is willing to take 8 mil instead of 14. He doesn't come across as a guy who would do that. Also, has he or has he not been sort of a diva and been a not so good locker room guy?
