    Watching the Pats and the Chargers playoff game with Marlon McCree and Jabar Gaffney, got me thinking. Which ExTexan do you think has been the most successful since leaving our team?

    McCree has been making plays on two consecutive playoff teams. He is smart and considering what our secondary looks like, is a needed man.

    Now before we get on the Gaffney ban wagon let me remind you he plays for Obi Won who can turn a 6th round QB into a 3 time superbowl/MVP champion.

    Gaffney's also putting up career numbers in the playoffs. I think he comes back to Earth soon.

    Jason Bell
    Marlon McCree
    Billy Miller
    Jabar Gaffney

    All of those guys have made contributions to playoff teams. We could really use McCree and Bell these days.

    It's amazing what a decent QB can do for an average WR corp. Oh wait... there are QB's on other teams that make players around them look better?

    I used to defend Gaff, but I don't think I stuck with it last year. I gave up on a lot of people last year.

    I used to assert here that Gaffney was a pretty decent player, when given a chance. I even went so far as to point out some fairly unknown (or at least unrecognized) metrics that supported that claim. Off the top of my head, in 2004, when I posted it, Gaffney led the team in yards per catch, even though AJ and Bradford were the deep threats; he led the team in first down per catch %; he led the team in fewest drops. He had a higher catch-to-target ratio; and he had like 40-some odd receptions that year. I still don't think he'll ever be a real #1 receiver, but he can be a solid player in this league and was very underutilized on this team (as have been more than a few players now).

    I am happy for Gaffney.

    I liked Jabar and thought he would have been a great value to re-sign. I even think I said he would be the biggest surprise FA signing this year. Where do I collect my prize?
