pollaxt Posted March 12, 2006 Share Posted March 12, 2006 I believe it's the fact that the coaching staff and the front office are a jot concerned about Santana's ability to remain healthy and hold up over the next few years. In New York, Santana pulled his hamstring quite a few times and while this year he was able to stay healthy for the most part, I and this board were scurred to our knickers the couple of times we heard Santana "tweaked" his hammy and left to ponder how the Skins could possibly field an offensive team with #89 on the field. Now if only one of Brandon Lloyd or Antwaan Randel El were signed, the Skins would have had a formidable and explosive pair of starting wide receivers. However, if an injury were to occur to one of them, we would be back to last year, praying that Taylor Jacobs or Jimmy Farris could somehow contribute. Let's face it, Moss, Randel El, and Lloyd are all quick and versatile receivers but have the girth of Dustin "Screech" Diamond. One could very easily get hurt considering a couple of them will play special teams and return kicks. With these two signings in the past couple of days, Ladies and Gentlemen, we have the thing which Coach Gibbs loves the most, depth. And if Patten remains with the team, even with an injury, he will be bumped from 4th receiver to the slot. And knowing that, is a very reassuring thing. And finally one giant...KNOCK ON WOOD!
