    Not about numbers? The coaches and management know how good dhop is. d hop is younger and one of the best receivers in the league

    how you continue to try and justify the return is mystifying...d hop was worth much more, our owners/bob rushed it. You trying to make up reasons for the bad return is ridiculous.

    Stefon got a first, Julio looks like he’s getting a first...we made a TERRIBLE MOVE

    it’s ok to admit it

    No one is justifying anything. I'm telling you why Diggs and Jones will get a better return.

    O'Brien was a **** GM.

    That has ZERO nothing to do with Hopkins value. Unless you think Percy Harvin's "speed" is worthy of a first round pick

    You’re justifying by saying there’s a reason we didn’t get a better return? That’s the definition of justifying it

    dhop could have easily gotten a first if we waited

    No, you wouldn't. Waited for who? He was on the market for 7 months. His contract played a part because no one thought he was worth $22 million.

    The Bills dropped out. The Eagles dropped out. All dropped out when they heard is contract demands.

    Speed and TALENT. Harvin didn't have the talent or the injury history. Will Fuller would have gotten more in a trade IF he could have stayed healthy.

    Idk y scarface is still defending this sht trade. We got trade raped bc we had a sht gm/hc who was way over his head and a fragile ego.

    U already admit that our gm was sht at this point y r u still posting in this thread?

    Hof type wr got traded for sht due to incompetent gm that u loved defending. U were wrong get over it

    HOF-TYPE WR IS MEANINGLESS. It is what teams are willing to give up for him that matters. The Texans could have gotten more for him. However, The teams that were willing to give you more dropped out of the bidding. Bill O'Brien screwed up by not waiting til closer to the draft.

    The sad part was that it took years for him to come to such a simple conclusion. The dude was defending this sht trade for what felt like years.

    At this point idk what point is he trying to make

    Apparently taking out the trash isn't worth as much as you think it is.

    UM, I said that from the start..dumbass.

    It looks like Jones will be traded for a 2nd rounder.

    Possible, but I just saw that they have received an offer including a first rounder.

    This trade was so bad David Stern would have vetoed it.

    When pettiness is a driving force in a trade..... it's never good.
