If the continue to win and be a playoff team with a high quality ofense, then the trade worked. If they fall off because they are weaker in other spots then no. Lots of gray area and things beyong their control the confused the issue more.
Right, but my statement is based on player projection not as much strategy. Who is to say those later round picks ever amount to anything, why not take a sure thing @ position of need?
In five years Andre Johnson will be out of the NFL while Julio or Blackmon will replace him as the premier WR's in the league.
