What's this mean to me , you still have some good components for a team . You need a different view to the talent because K&S have been looking at the same guys to long .
Not to mention Alex Gibbs effect was still around in 2011. Not so much anymore. People seem to forget just how stout our running game became with the master around to architect it for a couple of years. The longer removed we are, the worse our O-line seems to get.
