have you seen who their competition is?


I really thought we were gonna go OT at #60. The staff keeps saying they're not overly concerned about OT and I thought they were bluffing, but maybe they're actually telling the truth. I sure hope they know something we dont or that they plan to sign some veteran stop gap help at some point.

After I was a whiny ass last year and predicted 6-10 solely based on our O-line, I'm ready to just believe them this year.

I didn't say it would magically become good.

 

I did say it will be different than the static OL that you seem to think it will remain.  And, after it is different, it MIGHT be better.  Or not.

Be honest, wouldn't you be more excited going into the season with either Kouandjio, Moses or Robinson as our 2nd round pick? Right now we're going into the season with much less than when we ended it. Not excited at all.

Yes, I would.

 

Just as I'm excited about adding quality depth to the DL.  And team flexibility in the future because we have to resign Cam and Luke to long-term contracts.

One is a three year starter the team sewms to like a good bit.

who has his competition been?

 

the bar isn't exactly set too high. they've been  bit spoiled by having gross and kalil on the line and wharton last year. they've also been spoiled by having cam under center who can handle pressure better than just about anyone in the game, but any lesser QB would have gotten hurt bad by this point and probably killed by the gross and wharton feree line we are getting ready to see.

 

and the fact that we dont have a lesser QB doesn't excuse our lack of effort to improve there.

i understood that was too much talent to pass up, but how many teams passed on him twice?

 

i understand that it gives us leverage and options in dealing with DEs that take up WAAAAAAYYYY too much cap space, but we still have old and slow DBs and poo at OT on either side. i want to know what he plans on doing there that doesn't end up with JAG scrubs starting for us, esp. at OT that is kinda important.

 

How many teams passed on Hardy?

 

How many teams passed on CJ?

 

 

Our current starting DEs.

We needed a QB in 2011..... we drafted one with our first pick. lol

 

 

We needed a DT last year.... we drafted one last year.

 

 

This year we needed a  WR and well!!

 

 

Hey, if the guy plays good, then I'll be happy. I just like to see problems we have addressed.

I trust Rivera and company when it comes to defense and defensive players.   If they believe Ealy can help us..  then I fully trust them.
