I don't even get the original argument. Shaun Phillips will adequately fill a pass rushing role, but if you had the chance to get Aldon Smith, would you pass on that?
I see our RB corps as thin now, and I'm nowhere near ready to hand it all over to Montee Ball. McGahee was injury-prone anyway so I was hoping for another veteran there. I felt that Stokley was adequate at slot and that the $6 million could be better spent on beefing up the backfield and whatever else. It's not a shot at Welker at all. It's just that we have several needs.
I hope I'm wrong. Rub my face in it, PLEASE.
ONWARD, UPWARD. SUUUUUPER BOWLLL!!
