The team seems to be missing Cole, and I think while it may have been an incredible long term move, for right now, I think it may have been the bad call.
Definitely a bad short term move could've waited til the offseason i'm sure cole could have still fetched that precious third round draft pick even if he had a mediocre year under his belt...
