It's the off-season I know, time for hope and dreams. Speculation as to what to do to turn around this moribund franchise is everywhere, in every mock draft, and it's all good and interesting. But..... this article by Hyde has a few things in it that are a painful but true reminder of why we are not going far any time soon. It's all on the awful front office and this front office isn't going anywhere that I know of.
We can cry over the T-Hill injury. Over dropped passes. Poor blocking. Errors in assignments leaving opponent WRs and TEs wide open. No pass rush. Penalties. Etc, etc. All that is on the players for sure and one might as well add coaching and poor preparation, but the honest truth is that all that starts with the decisions made by the FO. Poor judgement on roster decisions, ie., who to keep and how much to pay to keep them, awful draft and FA value judgement, money spent in positions that do not offer the return on the field. We can say that about the TE position. The safety position. LB. DE. CB. Dline. All these areas have examples of decisions by the FO that have not resulted in gains for the team and several like the Kiko, Branch, McDonald, and Suh deals are cap strapping this team. And this malaise, while we watch other teams fly right by us, covers years.
The Landry thing is next up on the FO exam schedule. If history is any indication, they will screw this one up too.
