I'll believe it when I see it. I'm more hopeful Alexander goes. Or someone realized he retired ten years ago and nobody noticed.

Oddly, I had a weird feeling that we would drive the field only to shank the field goal. So to me, it felt like a win-win, simply because he should have made it, and by the Cardinals beating the Seahawks, we now jump above Arizona for draft positioning.

Bodine was terrible. Wilfork drove him three yards back or more every single play, which exposed Ogbuehi again, as the pocket pushed back so far that Cedric's man was there behind dalton lietrally 40% of the time. These holes need to be addressed in free agency this year, or at least one there and one in the draft.

Good to see Core get extended looks, but with the line being shaky, we never had time to go long.

Are we to the point of thinking about keeping LaFell another year?

Yeah, depends on the market, but he's been a solid 2 this year.

Yeah Ogbuehi needs some serious work this offseason if he is to be salvaged. I understand his is his first year, but we have literally seen no progression.

I pray for some coaching changes but I doubt it will actually happen.

Lafell should be back next year. He has been solid.

I hope we bring back Burkhead as well. Hill has been so disappointing this year, granted our oline has been even worse.

He's pretty much useless to the point that it's not even worth learning how to spell his name. Can't pass block or run block. We'll see if he gets any better with another offseason. I'd draft an OT in the first anyway though. We need more help on the OLine.

On the plus side we are picking #8 now...

Cam Robinson is the only tackle rated in the top ten that I have seen. He's also expected to play the right side. This probably isn't the year to draft a tackle in the first. I'm never going to say no to the online, but I'm still hoping for Foster or Barnett.

Yeah it's probably better to try and sign some guys in free agency and hope something clicks for the young guys in the offseason.

A fake story? Seriously, that's complete garbage reporting.

Both him and Fisher rated horribly yesterday. Fisher gave up 1-2 sacks and 5 pressures. same for Ced.
