Re: What the hell did we do?
I like to pick on Rick Smith, but the truth is this is not a bad situation to be in. This is "normal" in the cap era. Teams like the Patriots don't look bad, because they really don't have any players to speak of either. They paid Tom Brady, but that's about it. Wes Welker is twiddling his thumbs waiting to see what they're going to do. FA starts in 2 days.
They get a lot out of their QB, he seems to make everyone else look better. Our players make our QB look better..... more or less. If Arian & the OL ain't doing their thing, he struggles (or it seems as much lately), If Andre isn't Andre, Matt struggles when Walter, OD, Casey, or Arian have the drops (but who wouldn't?).
We're fine, we've got options. Why Smith hasn't acted on them yet is a matter of opinion, but we're not near as bad as we make it seem.
