BSofS, according to AB's salary cap #s, and looking into the future, it boils down to Iupati vs signing Crabs...and for probably $10 mil. When it comes to that, it is Iupati all over crabs.
That said, I have a hard time understanding why we are waiting for crabs and Mario to get back when we have Vance, patton and moore. Vance has had a couple balls thrown his way. Moore one, maybe and patton( don't even know if he played.). Before everyone goes nutty on "what if", I would sure like to see what we got in moore , patton, and please, Jim, throw more balls to Vance. Already, Kap has his guys, #1 Anquan, #2 Vernon, and probably kyle #3. To that I would sure like to see a # of passes to moore, patton, Baldwin, and definitely vance. Then when other guys get healthy we see what they have. But with the talent we have and are not using, that is really a shame. I would love to see us open against SEA: Boldin Patton Vance Vernon Baldwin .
Then let SEA hold two of those guys and watch the other 3 come open. Unfortunately we won't see that if Coach doesn't find out now what we have. Hey if one guy is a liability then ok, don't use him. But we don't know hardly anything about the guys that remain from camp, who beat out other good players. Against SEA we better have 5 wide and use them all.
