So, are we to assume lovies pick was winston, and the two rookie linemen are koetters?I mean, i would hate to think koetter didnt learn anything with his time with them, and is just plodding along like lovie does.That would be ok, but unless we are discounting good fa ol, why then draft two rookies on a line at the same time?I suppose the chicken/egg arguement could be used here as well.
..If he is so worried about his new qb being beaten early on, why go out and have two rookies covering him?But i agree, there also wasnt a lot to choose from in fa that would be much better than the prospects of ali and smith.
This is clearly a long term plan. Drafting two OL and starting them as rookies is usually not the best way to protect your QB in the short term.
but neither is drafting early OL and giving out huge OL contracts at the same time.we as fans have been clamoring for long term plans for years...but we want to be angry that we arent trying to quick fix it at the same time!
