The way TPN put it, you'd think Hilton is a better talent than Posey & right now, we don't know that.
There is no guarantee that Hilton would have seen as much playing time as he did in Indy. Chances are that he wouldn't, buried behind the great Kevin Walter & we'd be crying about our lack of depth at the WR position with Hilton on the depth chart.
But why do you think Hilton would have suffered the same injury? Or that he couldn't have beaten out keyshawn? He wouldn't have needed that extra time from having a year off
