Could we please cut a couple of the receivers we don't use and sign an offensive guard and tackle? Some warm body or steadier veteran could help. Sims or Snyder are going to get worked by Indy's DEs this Sunday. And that's not even thinking about what will come straight through the line at out right guard spot. It is too late for them to help Sunday but we need help.
For a team that never lines up with four receivers why do we have seven? Last game three were inactive and didn't even dress! What the hell is that about? I like Battle, Hill, Jones, and Spurlock but something’s got to give. Most teams carry five or six receivers even if they are pass happy. Why do we need seven? Personally I would start Morgan, Crabtree, with Jones, Battle, or Hill in the third spot. Bruce is Bruce but he won't be around next year.
We need to bring in the Mark Tauschers or younger guys for tryouts. I see a lot of guys on that free agent list with five to seven years experience. Maybe we can find someone steady or maybe it will light a fire under someone's butt. We can spare a receiver if it gives us a chance to find someone who can get it done. The QB, running, the D, the receivers, it all gets better if our O-line does their job.
All this talk about "imposing our will" be darned. We just need for the offensive line not to be the weak link. I see other teams getting good play from low first and second round rookies. We have spent plenty of picks on lineman but missed on too many. I am sick of it and had to vent. If management is stubbornly sticking with their picks to be right they're killing us. Time to start acting desperate and scouring the streets. Nothing works without the line, not gore, not Alex or Shaun, not Crabtree or Davis, and not even the D.
