what is so sad about it? we have gotten along pretty well so far and whatever these guys can do is gravy. gordon is not worth a first or second round pick and i will be really happy when he does get traded so this silly blather about him can go away. some posters have him outfitted in a niner uniform and they will be the only ones who are really pissed when he ends up not coming here.
Tell me if you feel the same way come playoff time if the WR's still can't get open or stretch the field. I don't feel that its "gravy" what either of these guys can do, I think its absolutley imperative for these guys to come back and contribute big time in order for this team to get to the SB. And until I see it, I am not too comfortable that a guy coming off a full Achilles tear and a guy that blew all of his knee ligaments out can do that.
And Gordon is def worth a 2nd rounder, problems and all. You will not find a better talent with that pick, and coupled with his ridiculously cheap rookie contract and ability to stretch the field its a no brainer.
