Agreed with everything you wrote except this. Jacoby caught 30 passes in the regular season, and lightning in a bottle in the playoffs.
His post-season performance, especially as a receiver, was nowhere indicative of, or a continued trend from, his regular season.
Props to the dude for taking advantage of two freakish pass plays against Denver and San Fran and turning it into a post-season for the ages. But that is not proof that he is "thriving" as a receiver in Baltimore.
If Gary deserves the blame for not using JJ, it was as a kick returner in his last season with the team. THAT is where his value to this team has been lost and for what we should be holding Kubes accountable for.
