Were you guys complaining about alex watching the same game I was? Yup we were 1 for 13 in 3rd downs, which is absolutely inexcusable. Ok, why? Alex threw the ball into the turf at WRs toes on at least a dozen plays. Why? Because even with an inferior WR corps, a) they never managed to get open(no separation according to NYG coaches), b) there were no quick slants or outs called on a slick field which favors the WR, and those passes were there all day long. Guys, that isn't alex's fault. The WRs that we have could at least been coached to give a fake, or God forbid, maybe two, and they would have been open. Even with inferior WRs, we could have had those quick short outs and slants. Most importantly, alex doesn't call the plays, Roman did. This was an abject failure at playcalling with WRs who didn't show us one fake all nite, and hence never were open. All those "turf balls" alex threw, were not crappy passes. They were thrown the only place they could be...into the dirt.
I have been an advocate for drafting OL until after this game. Now we have the DE/OLB we had needed, we got coached up the DBs and CBs that we needed, we have the RB, the TEs, the OL(if healthy), we have the QB. We have the all pro ST(unfortunately not healthy on PR side). What we now, finally, need, are the WRs. Blackmon will be long gone when we draft, and there are ideas out there about Kap being traded for higher draft pick, but looking at this yr, I would say baalke and Coach have a very good feel for talent....Braylon being the one exception. Now is the time to damn the torpedoes and get the WRs that so many fans want. Finally, I agree. While at it, add a very late in the draft QB, and maybe a promising mid round OL. The WRs should include someone who has a lot of experience at PR, and we should go into next season with not just one but two PR. As for WR, we need a #1, 2 , and #3 WR. Craps was a malcontent holdout who later showed flashes of brilliance, followed by long periods of disappearance. He would be a good #4. Actually, I would love to see him bundled up for a higher draft pick and ship him and his quirkiness elsewhere. Ergo, we need 3 WRs, not 1..or 2. We got our #4 and he has proven to be a very questionable quality. Ship him out and draft/ trade/acquire a #1,2 and 3 WR.
Don't put this one on alex. He played great, and I have not been an alex fan. OC and HC needs to really look at a badly called game and WRs we had played like this was a backyard game of flag football. Time for the WR housecleaning. What we have isn't worth keeping in my opinion... but we need 3 new guys.
