Very surprising deal! Seems like a wash talent-wise with Ryder having the edge in age and UFA status this summer and Cole possessing more leadership qualities. I really wanted to see Cole in the playoffs, though.
It's purely impossible. I don't believe it....yet. It has to be the other way around, 'cause Dallas takes that money and all and the fact that point for point, this year, we're getting a better player. Why in hell would Dallas give a pick....a 3RD ROUND PICK???
Either MB really thought Cole was on an abrupt down slope OR maybe the retirement thing might be for real ? If he were to retire we take the cap hit and end up with no player...
Or just maybe we're gearing up for a homerun this summer ! I guess I'm kindda of happy to get rid of the last 2 yrs of that deal.
But for now our right side is weakish though with Gally, Ryder and Gio : no size, not a lot of speed... 2012 Cole brought stuff that those guyys just can't. Looks like the brass thought THAT version of Cole was dead and buried
