yea I wasn't aware that people were complaining about resigning him...it made perfect sense after the Henry injury. It's not like he was resigned and expected to be the main offensive weapon.

You can't tell me that you would rather have anyone currently on the roster, on the roster in preseason or a free agent we could've signed over Gates. When it comes down to it, Gates will make a huge play in the playoffs

It's more like everyone around is so fast they just fly by him cause they are used to tackling faster players....

Gates was wide open on the 4th down play where it ended up going to Benji. He made Sorenson I believe fall down. Although I wouldn’t take away an all-time anticipation dime to TB, it’s nice knowing Gates was there if needed.

The old fat guy.....


That grey mare isn't what he used to be.

They should cut his pay.

He is still old.....

and a bit fat.

He definitely is not what he used to be......but being the vet that he is, he can still make the occasional play.

My statement is appropriately accurate from the day he was signed. Gates has had his moments during this season, no doubt.....but there is a reason many on here seek a HH return.

Gates would probably be the first to laugh and agree......and it isn't disrespectful, it is accurate.

Lynn has been very good at limiting his minutes. Last night, Gates moved better than he has in quite a while. Missing training camp was important.

He should miss training camp next year!
