    They guys they had when they won their last two Super Bowls where just ok as well. Rivers does have a history of injury. Doesn't mean he will again. Williams has been here two years, one hurt one not.

    That's irrelevant....We also won the last super bowl with no running game & no Oline....Doesn't mean we just ignore those positions....Every single offseason,upgrading weak parts of the team should be the goal....

    Yeah but they also had a major problem on the DL and the owners and FO made it public that they where going to improve it.

    So how do they do that? Maybe they like what they have at LB?

    Whats there to like? Same could've been argued with Clark,Kiehl,wilkison,dillard,jones,sintim,bullock, Goff,Herz,etc ..That's a lot of crap LBs to go through just in a few years...Idk who'd be to blame,but our LBs have sucked for awhile...Clearly someones dropping the ball when it comes to FA/Draft in that department

    Its all about getting after the QB in today's NFL. You can have the best LB's in football but if you can't disrupt the QB, it won't matter.
    Get well soon 80.

    Absolutely....But it still doesn't mean actual Lbs wouldn't make us a better team...
    And as far as distrupting the QB, I would've much rather had a passrusher in the 1st....Floyd/Datone Jones would've been my pick....RT's aren't exactly hard to find in draft/FA...

    this is exactly the point. those players havent necessarily sucked, as much as they fit the system for the time they were in it. And clearly all were replaceable, just as our current crop are (save williams who i like a lot). The GMEN dont value the position as highly as others; so you have guys like Kehl, Wilkinson, Dillard, Jones ect. 4/5 rounders. they feel as if these players are interchangeable clearly.

    Its not the fact that they drafted a RT in round 1 that bothers me. Its that they reached into the second round for him and passed on superior talent that fell into our lap.
