After A Year, One Thing I Am Thankful For

Recommended Posts

With a year to let things settle, I am so glad we didn't sell the farm again to draft Clowney. Had we done that, we would have lost more choices than we did for Julio and we would not have our left tackle for the next ten years. On top of that, he would have missed the season with injuries. Clowney may end up being good but I am glad we did not take the bait on that trade.

I don't have any data to back up this feeling, but it seems that players out on IR for their rookie seasons usually don't pan out to be much. I can think one exception....Gore. But, usually a major injury during a rookie season spells trouble.

Wasn't Patrick Peterson on IR his rookie season. He's now considered to be one of the best DB's in the league.
