lets not kid ourselves, they are easy fixes in the draft, FA, or any route to obtain players. he did decide to bring back 2 LBs, and brought Blackburn in. gave Tolbert the extra year on his deal.
Blackburn is a vet bandaid. Not a fix. Tolbert isn't the homerun RB.
Vet FAs are short term fixes. The good ones are dang expensive. We don't even dabble with the good ones.
Tolbert got the extra year likely to do what he began last year....he started taking Cam's goaline work.
Gettlemen didn't just randomly draft a RB and LB as BPA. He knows 2014 is the start of fixing the mess and making real progress.
