So, are we competing or rebuilding?

I'm interested in how you see Chinn.  Dude is a hitter, we know that from last year.  He's been invisible this year, which I don't like at all.  Not sure how the DROY (He was!) becomes invisible in one offseason, but something is wrong with how we are using him.

It's because Chinn is confused out on the field, and Shaq is getting angry with him. In fact Shaq looks angry a lot these days.

We're competing poorly due to Rhule's blueprint for the team. He built up the defense and brought in veteran QBs which doesn't work if you want winning seasons. It will keep you from being terrible, but being terrible is an important ingredient in rebuilding because it gives you the pick of the litter at QBs in the draft. Now we're in QB limbo, and so is the team.

In Rhule's mind you can build up the defense, and play small ball perfect offense with a veteran QB and have winning seasons. That doesn't work in the NFL. The NFL is too complicated for all the players on the team to play to near perfection. So you get the usual bloopers that any team will make, and Rhule's response is that the players are shooting themselves in the foot and that's why we're losing too many games. No. The blueprint is not working because it's flawed. You can't expect the players to play at such a high standard every game. Many of the players are just not that bright, and you can see them looking clueless out there at times. That's why you use a different blueprint to build a team.
