everyone is excited about him up in Boston...ugh

The RB situation is no big deal. We can fill that in any number of ways without any trouble. LB though.... we're screwed there.
Now I'm perfectly willing to believe that there's a LB out there who can help us sitting on someone's practice squad. 31 other practice squads out there to dig through tells me we could find one guy pretty easily. Throw in the street free agents in our price range and I bet we find two of them.
Four? Not going to happen.
The 1-6 Giants needed inside help and swing a deal for Jon Beason. Beason is adjusting well and is now leading that defense. Hell, he won't fix the Giants but he is helping cover a big hole. It's funny how some organizations move fast and start fixing problems and how we move at glacial speed. Perhaps this trash can dumpster of a season can help McNair realize that his slow, plodding organization needs to find a way to maneuver quicker with their moves around the league. The Kubiak offense has the same dystopia in that it doesn't really evolve very quickly either. It's too much of a good ol boy system it seems.
