Veldheer is a good tackle when healthy, hope we can get him cheap along with gross coming back. Then we could go more receiver heavy in the draft, maybe pick up an olineman in the mid rounds for depth

Oh that timeless debate, the chicken or the egg. Bottom line is that we better draft studs. We can't afford to miss period. So despite what we all think, it needs to be best player available between the OL and WR.

I didn't see the presser either but it seems to me the GM and the Huddle are split on how to get better...

 

Simply:

 

If we go with offense we gain points but lose on defense...if the goal is 30 pts a game aren't we going to give more points of defense....what is the balance here? I think we got lucky on the patch work secondary this year, it could have really cost us some games... are we doing that again? 

 

what positions are better to get from the draft compared to free agency or trades/ waivers? We cut/resigned Wharton and except for blocking Newt on the 4 th and goal, didn't do too badly. 

 

Don't we get better hands/speed from the draft and hogs later? although we have been burned on WR before....no more LSU offensive players,for sure..

 

it seems that quality OL can  be pick up later...or am a neanderthal?

What no one seems to get is that this years draft has some of the best wrs in a while. If the talent was in par wth last years I'd be all for 2 OT in the first two rounds. I just think we could get the same quality OTs next year in the draft and that isn't the case for wr. Would you rather have a good oline this year and a bad wr corps and then next year upgrade to a good wr corps or a great receiver corps this year and a good oline(provided gross stays and no injuries) and then next year have both areas be great?


Very good point here

Rodger Saffold and Michael should be had for cheaper than what most people think. Possibly on one year deal.

 

Breno Giacomini is another solid RT. Chris Clark doesnt have a lot of experience but played damn good this season blocking Peyton's blindside.

 

There. Gettleman will go OT in Free Agency so we can quit the OT in the 1st round talk.

Upgrading our OL can only help so much if we are still relying on a 35 year old 5 foot 9 receiver to help carry our offense.

i dont think that just because we get a lineman in FA means we cant get a wr in the draft.  we definitely need to try and get talent from both pools, and it's fairly obvious we will since we now have 21 guys not under contract

Quarterback can't get the ball to a receiver if he's on his back.

 

Add in that we need the real threat of a run game for the whole thing to work.  Right now, we haven't got it.

 

Even average skill players look a whole lot better when there's someone god blocking for them.

I'm not saying we can't upgrade both, we certainly can, it won't be easy though.

 

One thing I do know, is that I am tired of us either pretending it isn't a need, or failing miserably at acquiring a legitimate threat at WR.
