But Pff had Brady's o-line as one of the best......

Oh yes of course, the problem is we are not allowing Armanti more time to run complex routes, got it!

I cam here expecting to roll my eyes yet you make a valid argument. It could also be argued that cam needs to work on making quicker decisions and not all fault is on our receivers themselves.

either way, interesting.

oline needs improved. cam needs to make quicker decisions. WR corps needs an influx of talent.

all these things are correct.

LOL. good write up. LOL

It was a good write up. That said, I still want to protect Cam as much as possible.

I mentioned every thing you said already in the op. I agree that Cam can extend the play so having a stellar o-line for someone like him is less than important than it would be to a someone like Peyton.

Our weakest position on the line is our Guard play. So do you think Warmack or a top WR prospect will help the offense as a whole more?

Personally? I think we need both just as much, and i think they should take who the best player on their board is when it's their time to pick.. But i think you're under-valuing what good line play does for the rest of the offense.

last year the pats offense was set up just like the broncos, to be a quick strike get the ball out fast passing game. its only natural that their OL would look better.

and that time with the ball was by design for them. when you have an old immobile QB, and defenses are geared to attack the more mobile ones, you've got to find ways to get rid of the ball quickly....which is something we've got to do better and more often.

Many, many times, Cam had too hold onto the ball way too long because receivers couldn't get open. Just check some of the game-day threads.

Of course sometimes he had no time in the pocket, especially later on when the injuries piled up.

We definitely need a #2 future #1 WR whether in this draft or the next but we need to sure up the O-Line and have better depth as well.

Those stats could be an indication of his receivers not getting open plus him simply holding onto the ball a bit too long and not making quick decisions as well (the latter issue was more in the first half of the season than the second). Although I do think we're going to pick a receiver early in this draft, don't sit here and tell me our line play (especially on the right side) isn't an issue either. Also, don't doubt that cam's ability to extend plays doesn't contribute to that amount of time he has in the pocket as well..

Read the title, and I'm pretty certain he is counting both as a need. Giants do real well drafting late round lineman too. Doesn't mean the same will hold true for Gettleman, but I hope so.

we absolutely need to get a WR with one of the first couple picks.

the more i consider it the more i want to draft a dynamic receiver at #14 and grab a veteran lineman like boothe and plug him in at RG. grab a little more depth in the draft and i think we'd be drastically improved personnel-wise over last season.
