  • We needed OL help more than we needed Wilson

    First off, THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE FUMBLE.

    Basically, we had a home run hitter in Scott already. He had a great blocking RB in Ware. We had a young up and coming player in Brown. Bradshaw is our starter and that isn't going to change.

    I get the whole "draft talent in the first round, not need" but our need was immense. This is a BAD offensive line. Worse than last year by a lot.

    This OL has been spiraling down since EA left. Eli covers up for a lot but you can't fake the running game.

        We've got what we've got...now we've gotta figure out what we can do with it and hope that maybe some Free Agent is out there that can help

            I actually liked the pick of Wilson. I still don't get why our team sparingly uses the players that they draft early only when they don't have a choice. Even Nicks in his rookie year rode pine until it became clear that our receiving corps stunk at the time.

              Our oline is what it is. It is just a drawback that we just have to outweigh with the other things that we do good

                I see what you are saying OP. From what little we've seen of Wilson's running ability this preseason, it's obvious why the management selected him in the draft but now there's just that much more pressure to find good offensive linemen in the 2013 draft now.

                  This IMO is too the area of most concern . Do I feel like they can be or get better ? Of course but even if they do we still are thin depth wise and very inconsistent. They have to man up and deliver, there's no other way around, plain and simple.

                    fumbles. He would have played more otherwise. Coughlin said as much in post game

                      Reese builds for the future as much as possible

                      You can't have every unit on your team as strong as youd like

                      David Wilson is the future running back

                        Wilson is a good pick. The problem is we blew our cap money on Rolle and Canty and couldn't sign stud OT Eric Winston in the off season. Canty and Rolle are way overpaid and it's costing us cap space to sign quality OL. And rookie OL, even first rounders, rarely provide quality play their first year in the league.

                          I don't think Canty is overpaid. The Dline needed him badly tonight. Maybe overpaid in that he misses too many games, but not talent wise.

                            Very wise, grasshopper. Exactamundo! Thats why I couldn't believe the Canty deal: 43MM for a 3-4 DE into a maybe 4-3 DT, not even a real(4-3) DT. Bad move

                              @ The OP: Who would you have taken in the first round over Wilson? I understand and agree with your sentiments about the offensive line, in that we should have drafted some more in earlier rounds, but IMO there was no one left at our pick worth taking in the first.
