I am just not sure what other move we should make this year.
I like Gett's approach of working off bad contract...bringing in cheaper vets as stop gaps...and building the right way. Which is from the lines out.
We can make a run at the playoffs this year. But, we were not correcting everything in one off season.
we could have drafted a WR who would have really helped out our corps now and in the future in the second round.
we didn't because we were solely focused on short.
did we make the right decision...i hope so, but the group of WRs available in this draft was good, very good. we could have gotten better there, but we didn't.
we could have moved up into the 3rd round to pick up one of the remaining WRs...but we didn't.
we could have used our 4th rounder to pick up a WR who would have helped the corps and picked up a RG in FA....but we didn't.
there are things we could have done to improve the WR corps...but we chose not to. they had their plan, and they stuck to it. i just hope it works but their lack of effort only pushed the need further up. i do like the draft and the guys we picked up...even kugbila, but i am disappointed about that.
seeing as how rivera was rewarded with another season even tho he's failed to produce a winning season to years in a row and only offered excuses and platitudes (rome wasn't built in a day...gtfo) and we hired an OC i don't like...i suppose i should be used to things not working out the way i wish they had. i'm stuck hoping that the decisions they made were the right ones. i like gettleman and i think he'll build the team well, but i wish he had done more in adding another WR or TE this year.
forgive me if i am lacking faith in this organization. we've had only 4 winning seasons ever. there's not much evidence to warrant much faith in these guys.
respect that or not. i don't really care.
