It was a simple little statement that I didn't expect to blow up into anything more. I was just pointing out that they didn't ONLY gain weapons at receiver. They lost one as well. A fairly significant one IMO. One that Cutler obviously had chemistry with on (and off....yikes) the field.
I think we're having some miscommunication here. I absolutely get that you don't think he was irreplaceable and not trying to imply you think that. However, my point is that he was 1/8th of the passing game.
And he was a poor scheme fit for Martz.
Quite frankly, not only do I think he was COMPLETELY expendable, but that the offense will improve without him there.
