I though I’d weigh in on this since I’ve been chronicling all of the Buffalo Bills blunders.
I don’t dislike the trade. It’s too late though. The trade should have happened in the off-season, not 4 games into the season. But it’s better than nothing I guess.
I have a bigger problem with the perceived value of draft picks. This isn’t a problem for only the Bills.
So the Bills give up a well above average running back for a 4th round draft pick. Ok.
I’d like to know what percentage of 4th round draft picks end up being better than average. I’d be willing to guess it’s a small percentage. I don’t see why the value of a proven talent isn’t more than the gamble of a draft pick. Same with the Randy Moss trade. I think it’s a product of the monkey see, monkey do, behavior that’s rampant in the NFL.
