For McCoy? Ok trade.
They gave him an absurd pay increase when it wasn't necessary and he's a RB. A dime a dozen position.
The trade for Hughes was a good one for sure.
His managing of the most important position in the game has been pretty damn bad. To go into a season with EJ, Thad Lewis and Jeff Tuel as your 3 QBs is a fireable offense in its own right.
your take on RBs is different than what I expected after your whining in the Gillislee thread
Whaley signed Kolb that season and he got hurt in TC. Everyone jokes about the wet mat but that's not why he didn't end up playing, that simply gave EJ more reps in TC. Kolb was concussed in one of the preseason games and had to retire. He has severe effects from it still. He didn't intend to go into the season with those 3. He worked out other vets who were available in late August and they all sucked (which is why they were available as you know). Thad actually won a couple games as the backup, as you know.
A worse transgression was Marrone going to the Cleveland game on TNF with only EJ and Tuel active QBs, and Thad who actually had playing expertise on the PS.
