What will Jerry do.....
Ojomo and Tracy are looking like versions of this years Victor Cruz. Unfortunately, they both play the same position and they play it very well by all accounts. Can we keep both? How would we and where would that put us in a deeper hole?
Tracy would have been a lock if he didn't get injured and miss playing time that showcases Ojomo's considerable talents. Now, I'm not so sure. But is there a way for us to have our cake and eat it too? Precedence tell us perhaps.
With Tracy injured, we could put him on IR and keep Ojomo active for this season.
In Cruz's rookie season he had a "mild hamstring", had told a media head he was ready tor etun to [ractive and WHAM, he was placed on IR. Upon closer examination, Cruz was put on IR because Lawrence Tynes sprained his ankle and, with the regular season looming, they had to create room for an "emergency kicker" while Tynes healed. That maneuvering didn't turn out bad at all.
Let's give this a little more long term thought though. Will Osi be back next season and beyond? Tuck is getting older as well. So keeping both Ojomo and Tracy would be a very positive move for the future.
Do we consider the again porous, at times, OLine in the equation. We're not likely to find serious OLine help at this point in the process. So we are going top have to rely on our DEFENSE to carry the offense if only in the short term. DOn't anyone even try to turn this into an "he hates Eli" issue. If last night was any indication of how well the OLine is going to function, offense is going to be a struggle.
Can we level the playing field some by have a defense that literally creates havoc no matter who's playing?
