Default Jabar Gaffney Appreciation Thread

This guy has to be one of the two or three most underappreciated guys on the team right now. In his honor, I give you this:



Look at the routes this guy is running. Most catches are over 15 yards downfield with none of the hated bubble screens, with the exception of when they get inside the 10.....and who says Orton can't throw with accuracy beyond 5 yards? Look at these throws.

That would be a 1a, 1b, 1c option, with Gaffney at 1a. I like Marshall but he isnt a #1

Jabar Gaffney is a nice WR to have on the roster....but he is definitely not a #1.

He is a complementary receiver. Nice to have. Great pick-up. It was nice to have someone familiar with McDaniels system who can come in and contribute at a good level when more is asked of him. Hence the finale game and others.

Did you watch the video? It was more than the Chiefs game. I agree wholeheartedly with the OP. Gaffney is very underrated...

Gaffney was a fantastic pick-up. Look forward to seeing him excel next season.

I actually thought we'd see more of Brandon Lloyd. I'm guessing he's just useless on special teams, so it's tough to activate him. But, every time he plays, he seems to make a few nice catches.

I guess his multiple years in McDs system doesn't give him advantage in your mind then. Everyone else is expecting Orton to get better in year two in the system. Marshall and Royal should as well, should we keep Marshall. I expect Gaffney's stats to get worse as Marshall and Royal settle into the offense. Look for another 40 catch 450 yard 2 TD season from him. That's about his average.

He looked awesome and if you heard him the next day on The Fan, carried himself with great class as a tremendous team player. I hope he's back in camp next year.

No kiddin'!

Guys remember the score?
We've lost the freakin' game AT HOME!
Gaffney gets the game of his life, Orton gets praised, now we're looking forward to these two for next season?
Come on people!
You guys can do better than that.
A #1 receiver? lol!

There's nothing about Orton 2nd year in the system that would guarantee he'd get better.
A second year in the system will not make Orton short-hop the ball to his receivers, his lack of athleticism, his inaccuracy in mid-long range throws, and his inability to improvise. He just doesn't have it, people.
He's not the guy!
Orton needs a stronger defense backing him up, more than an extra year in the system would do to make him look better ...
