Or the downside of a FO that kept from paying someone they knew they would have to pay anyway?

Because Robinson, Jenkins and Harper look so great!

No because Ellis, Smith, Hawthorne, Shanle, Bushrod and Strief looked much much worse.

We'll get Greer, Patrick and Henderson back soon.

Why you may be right...
Our O-line looks much worse than simply losing Nicks. Something else is F'd up there. Strief and Bushrod look much worse than years past.
I was thinking the same thing about the mobile QB's. We do have Vick, but we seem to have had success with him in the past. Good post. Something to finally make me feel better. Did you see any breakdown coming from Nicks old spot?

Look. You guys can flame me if you want. Our O-line looked a little less stout in preseason this year, but not THAT bad like it did today.They basically threw Grubbs in there with not much coaching or getting him into the scheme. Its coaching and the lack of Kromer that's killing us, IMO

Vick is no where near as cerebral as RGIII or Cam. And his wheels dont move as well as they used to.

A big why it won't:

I'm not giving my judgement of the season until Vitt is coach.

Re: Game thoughts....Why it will be a long season

Spags defense still needs time to solidify. No prob, its a long season and there's plenty more division games.

Without a doubt Kromer's absence is being felt from the perspective of the O-line and them giving Drew more time to find the open guy.

I like that we stuck with the run longer today, and PT 9 for 110 yds is ridiculous. Ingram had a couple moments, and had Jimmy caught that TD that hit him in the chest, maybe its a little different.

Hey, at least no fumbles, right?

After two games we have close to a thousand yards of offense and are averaging 30 points a game.
