So if you fail at something you should just give up? that's the worst logic I've ever heard. If anything, the odds are in our favor to hit this time.

How in the world does that make sense?
Because you have other ways to aquire O-linemen via trade or the draft. Not to mention we have had more success in the past with FA O-linemen than drafted O-linemen.
I say if you aren't good at something you should give up and focus on what you are good at until you turn that weakness into a strength. You don't just keep making the same mistakes over and over again when there is more than one way to skin a cat.
Ok enlighten me. What exactly are we good at that we should stick to? Drafting QBs? RBs? We haven't exactly hit on much.
The Jets and Broncos have two of the best Olines in football. Each is anchored by a top 15 pick at LT and/or surrounded with other high picks. I'm glad you aren't making these decisions. If the GM fails at these picks much more, you change GMs, not stop drafting linemen.
I think if we can get proven FA Olinemen we can do some amazing things with this years picks at RB, WR, DB, LB, and maybe even D-line. We can't keep trying to get rookies to block grown men with no real coach to develope them. Working towards our strengths point to this. We get man handled in the trenches on offense (with all of these young undeveloped O-linemen) while we have an all pro TE, RB, and serviceable WR's. We should really be focusing on the QB position in this draft as well since we are not solidified there. But it all starts upfront and our current philosophy isn't working!
