So, I guess you're trying to say that Miles has lived up to the contract that we've signed him to?
In 2012 (so far) -- 49 receptions for 727 yards in 11 games? and 4 touchdowns?
In 2011 (in 11 games) -- 43 receptions for 579 yards......
He is averaging 66 yards per game -- Lets say that (by some miracle) he doesn't miss any more play time and gets his average -- He'll end up with around 1,057 yards.
He will have averaged 892 yards (per year) over 3 seasons.
You consider this quality production from a #1 wide receiver? If so, what a low expectation level we have as Cowboy fans.
The reason this team has not been able to make progress over time is that Jerry is unable to cut bait when all signs indicate that he should.
There is no GM in this league that would be satisfied with a number 1 wide receiver avergaing 892 yards over 3 seasons.
Forget the name -- Forget the star on the helmet -- This player has not lived up to his contract.
I love Miles Austin but he's not a number 1 and unfortunately we've paid him like he is....
A GM doesn't fall in love with his players. A GM loves his pay-check and is afraid of losing it.
We have a GM that has no fear of losing his job.
