We just can't find any stability on the line. Our already volatile and underwhelming line just got sent into a tailspin with a massive hole at C.
It's amazing how we've been so unable to put our players in the best position to succeed. This is most evident in Baas:
1. We draft him at the top of the 2nd round after he dominated as a C in college.
2. We move him to guard where it doesn't work for 4 years.
3. We then move him to C only because circumstances necessitated the move and then he goes to have his best season and subsequently leaves to the Giants.
Without Baas, who are our best options? Kilgore? Pearson? A FA? Baas was the best FA C available.
Mike Nolan is an idiot. He set us back a good 4 or 5 years. Draft a college center well lets move him to OG. Get Manny Lawson inexperienced as it is DE but oh wait move him to a 3-4 LB. Draft players for the position you need, we can't be messing around. We are not good enough of a team to do that. Take a one year guy from Utah played in a non pro spread offense over, nevermind...
If you notice, the current regime is doing the same thing. Hopefully, with better results, but time will tell.
