Projections are pretty much worthless, but hey it's the off-season. Glad to see the TD's higher than the INT's but wonder where some of the #'s come from such as: why project Carr's comp % and ypa to take a step back from last year overall and way back from last year pre-injury (59.8% comp % and 7.27 ypa)? Why project basically the same ypc for DD but essentially the same # of carries (guess they think he will be injured for 1/3rd of the season) and less TD's? Why predict Gaffney becoming even less of a target? Why predict a more productive yardage offense, but less total TD's 27 than the 29 the Texans had last year?

Gaffney has to have at least 500 this year and I think Joppy will have way more than that.

Gaffney is a good reciever. To me, he is really underestimated. With more looks this year he should have a break out year because he'll be open with the double on AJ.

Fiddy has a REAL good point. Gaffney is REAL young and is just now growing into an NFL reciever. I think he will be a very good one, maybe not an all pro, but real solid for us for a lot of years.

I think we will see Bradford have a real good year. Nothing like a contract year to increase a players concentration and effort. The question will be, do we re-sign him if he catches 60+ for ~800 Yds. and scores 8+ TDs? Be hard to cut that loose and what do you do if he reverts to the hands of stone guy after a big contract?
