Yeah, it’s a problem that is getting worse. The guys are there, they just aren’t coming out of college NFL ready. Developing talent is tough because this position really requires game time to get a feel for what to do, but who’s going to risk their QB with a developing lineman.
Practice only gets you so far. The current CBA doesn’t allow for enough contact in practice to get lower level guys the reps they need to get better.
Imagine being a developing oline man and your last full game was 2-3 years ago in college. You prob start to lose the feel for things after a while.
Then in my vocabulary it wouldn't be good or bad money but rather no money and some money. Actually the saying throwing good money after bad always was explained to me as initially wasting money on a bad purchase like a car that doesn't run for example and then spending more to fix it rather than cutting your losses.
