Oh, really? It's just about money, right?

Yep. Just about money. (And, well, that Fauria has proven, through two NFL games and limited snaps, that he's "on par" with Pettigrew in terms of blocking and has "FAR FAR FAR greater hands".)

I love the famous "detfan backpedal". Churn those feet.

Lets keep it all in this thread now.

You are the ONLY one here seriously struggling to grasp how bad Pettigrew is. I said it many times the MONEY could be used better elsewhere. I can not help it you are grasping. You are so predicatble I beat you to your own response. Hilarious.

It's ONLY money, right? Money, and the fact that, through two games, you think Fauria has proven that he's on par with blocking and has "FAR FAR FAR greater hands". That, and money.

You said it, man... just stand by it. Just admit that you have a clear, convenient double-standard. It happens.

Quote:
When Pettigrew proves to be a non-factor because he cannot haul in the football, Detroit's odds of winning are reduced.


Yup nothing about his blocking. Pass first offense and we are raving about his blocking Laughing

Quote:
Pettigrew is a free agent after this season the team has a contract option for 2014 but unless he's willing to sign an extension for a significantly smaller amount, he should be jettisoned in favor of a more reliable tight end.




Quote:
As it stands right now, the 6-foot-6, 265-pound Pettigrew is closer to bust than gem after five seasons.


Quote:
Pettigrew's cap number ranks 15th among tight ends.


Money that could be and SHOULD be used on a better player

Quote:
Pettigrew, who isn't expected to catch as many passes as Johnson, was second on the team with nine drops versus 59 receptions. He was targeted 102 times, making his drop rate 8.8 percent. That's one of the worst rates for a starter who is a regular part of an offense, and the nine drops was 11th worst in the NFL.



Yup his blocking is so amazing though. If this was a run team it would actually matter

No double standard. Pettigrew has shown he is not that great of a blocker. That is it. The end. Get over your love for him as he is a FA and one they are not bringing back because he SUCKS for a pass first offense designed for TE to catch balls

Done arguing it. The other 99.9 % people you called clueless agree with me. No need to continue arguing with the almighty 0.01 % right i guess

Well I'm not sure about that. Two games into the season I certainly won't claim Fauria has far, far, far better hands. Way to early for that. I don't think anyone can effectively say that he's a better blocker either. The sample size is far to small.

The Pettigrew argument almost made me forget.

What Houston shadowing Fitz on the majority of plays?

Unbelievable. Now they're coming after him more than a week later. That's weak sauce.
