In response to NoMorePensionLooting's comment:
And they became vulnerable to this when they allowed themselves to become one-dimensional ,,,lack of a solid running back. Let a team rush everyone, quick hand off to a power back up the middle and the end rushers arrive only to find the train has left the station.
I think we have backs here now that can beat that...if we use em'
Exactly. Maroney was a bum. Maybe if they stuck with him, he would have done something but its hard to take the ball out Bradys hand and give it to a bum! Did Maroney every crack 1,000 yards? I dont think he did.. BB doesnt value the WR, DB or RB position. Kind of hard to win like that. We DID overcome those things with a good Defense and overacheivers like T.Brown, J.Wiggins, K.Faulk,etc. but its really not an ideal concept. We wonder why no WRs have came here and made a splash? Well when has BB taken a WR in the 1st?
Say what you want, but 7 out of the 10 top WRs from last year were 1st round picks and so were # 11 and 12. Sure you can find gems here n there, but weve NEVER taken one high and its no coincidence we had to trade to get decent guys. Same w/Dillion. We traded for him, won a SB and then we DO use a 1st round pic....on the worst of 5 available backs! Now BB has Ridley but he fumbles and Vareen who is always hurt. Guys slip in the draft for a reason. Maybe next year is when they do dip for that skill position.(They finally took a pass rusher in 1st round) Surprise , Surprise! CJ is a stud! They took Hightower high, Good pick. Mayo, top ten pick!
So why are people making excuses for BB again? Where have those SECOND round picks got us? The proof is THERE. USE THE DAM 1st ROUND picks and stop trying to get value in 2nd round. Its been a horrible return
