Wow, emotions are running high for you guys?
Eng, I'm sorry pal but your list of "faults" or whatever is extensive and would typically be made for teams who have numerous problems and don't win. I'm all for a fans right to be critical of a team, believe me I do it all the time, but to suggest BB is making multiple mistakes that could have simply been prevented by doing the many things you mentioned is a tad ridiculous Imo.
And Karp we appreciate any analysis coming from a guy with your first hand insight, and nobody wants to put you on ignore just because you have been critical of a this team for the last however many years. This happens to all teams who portray dominance for such a long period of time. Fans expectations grow to unrealistic heights and we start admonishing the team for not turning out great back up QBs who win super bowls on other teams and other weird scenarios.
True you didn't answer the question, were they not faults and did they not hurt us? What's ridiculous is to close you eyes to something that obvious and write it off. I thought the point of every offseason was to get better? Wouldn't finding those faults and correcting them the point of the offseason?
BB seemed to agree considering most of those faults I listed last offseason that can back to haunt the team BB seems to have adjusted this offseason and addressed. But, you must think BB is ridiculous since he did exactly what I suggested he do to prevent the same mistakes from last year. If you didn't know what those were here you go:
- Spent money on a more durable consistent CB (Revis over Talib)
- Got Vereen a proper backup (drafted White)
- Added a vet pass rusher to a thin DE group (signed Smith)
- Spent a high draft pick on a young high talented player to take over the starting DT position (Easley)
These were things I suggested in the 13' offseason and he adjusted and did them this offseason so BB recognized those mistakes and corrected them. Next year when they sign a TE or draft one if it turns out to be a weakness this year, will you say that's ridiculous too?
So, BB did what you suggested?
He tried to sign that injury prone player you "knew" wouldn't be available for us in the afc game but another great team paid him more money. I guess Elway and BB are idiots and should have consulted the pats engs how to build an NFL franchise hand book.
I don't understand the running back point?
You think Will Smith(an aging former pro bowler with recent injury red flags) is BB doing what you said he should? You blast almost every aging vet we sign? Which is it?
Wait! You like the Easley pick? Very un patseng like. The guy has red flags dude....2 of them.
