We've debated this to death but Gaffney and Bradford are receivers with vastly different skill sets and they are used very differently in the Texans offensive attack. You will rarely see Gaffney running fly routes to clear zones or win man to man battles deep because that's not his forte.' Similarly, you will rarely see Bradford line up in the slot or see him run a 15 yard crossing pattern from a split position looking for soft spots in the zone. Bradford has the flat out speed to beat defenders man to man and that's the way they use him. Gaffney doesn't have that kind of speed so they use him more as an underneath posession guy. At least that's the way it's been.
