I wasn't bothered by Ehrhoff's defensive deficiencies. Why can't we see and accept him for what he was... An elite defensive PP QB. We didn't need him to play in all situations. The day we let Ehrhoff walk, I immediately questioned the decision. I guess Gillis really believes in our internal defenesemen cap. Ehrhoff got fair market value in Buffalo, and I would've been fine if we offered him that contract, even if it runs scary long.
