feels pretty short sighted for you to say "the team must make this particular signing based on a team from 15 years ago" and then say that there are only three players that the 2nd in command on offense would've ever interacted with.
What you don't understand is that aside from Cam, Jimmy, or Derek, no one on the team has any idea how he will be. They don't get coached by him, they don't talk to him. They are as in the dark as the rest of us.
It would be like an employee commenting on the promotion of a manager in another department.
and just for the thread in general, Alstott might've been one of the more overrated fullbacks ever. But, if the idea is that they need someone here like that because he was picked during Shula's tenure, then a true blocking FB isn't your guy. Tolbert is.
