Guess that was just another 'assumption' that was about as right as them being one of the worst teams up against the cap...and how they'd be in 'cap hell' etc.
As we all know, you can't be worried about the other 31 teams, but if you don't see Sanchez having more options than were predicted, you're kidding yourself.
Yes, Mason is obviously getting up there in yrs, but he does not provide the diva presence and drama that guys like Moss/T.O. etc provided at that comparable older age. He has proven himself as a viable possession WR. Hell, he seemed to do alright with Baltimore, and I don't remember anyone bringing up his age then. 2010 playoff loss in January:
Baltimore REC YDS AVG TD
A. Boldin 64 837 13.1 7
D. Mason 61 802 13.1 7
Or how about as recently as October of last yr, when we barely escaped with an overtime win?? He absolutely torched the Patriot defense, and was the game leader as a WR:
D. Mason 8 (rec) 100 (yds) 12.5 (ave) 20 (long) 10 (total targets)
I Don't remember anyone bringing up his being 'old' then??
