Building for future success

I think one of the main issues as to why our D has struggled is because we are missing just one or two players from the D line.

I think our main priorties in the coming seasons should be

Re-sign Nick Fairley, at the minute he's our best D lineman
Continue to throw David Onyemata in for experience
Find a dominant Right End

Edibali, Gwacham and Kruger are at best stop gaps or rotational players

Imagine how our D line would look if we drafted someone like Myles Garrett;

Cam Jordan, Sheldon Rankins/ Onyemata / Fairley, Myles Garrett

We would be set for years and could finally win at the point of attack, which so far, we haven't had a ton of success doing!

We need to build at the point of attack, like it or not, the game is won in the trenches.

The fact that Obum Gwacham was our starting DE speaks volumes as to how weak the depth we have really is.

Front 7 and O-line in 2017.
Anything else is just gonna piss everyone off.

Maybe a QB... maybe if an Aaron Rodgers type falls.

Re: Building for future success

I'm thinking that's a pretty nice line ya got going there Dizz with the hopeful development of Onyemata.Hopefully Nick changes his up and down career and stays committed to knocking roadblocks out of his way while causing havoc into the opposing teams backfield putting Qb's on the fkn ground and in traction.Still missing that piece to lighten the heat Cam faces week in/week out.
I know Coach came into the season saying we Needed consistent pressure upfront to tie everything together.
I truly believe we'll go all-in opposite Cam first round and hopefully Ireland scores big!
All in all,I just hope Coach don't catch the "Mad-Hatter Disease"and keeps this thing moving in the right direction!
Slap DA in the back the head everytime he calls in this soft zone **** and keep em' in man until we iron this thing out.

WHO-DAT!
