Hey CC & Co. - any money left in the 'kitty' to maybe make a deal for a decent TE like this??

I agree with Ogre. We have to address LT and TE next offseason....and no I don't need to see the season to know these positions are weak. I know it now, and so does everyone else with two eyes and a brain. Assuming we don't address either via free agency, If we don't come away with a LT and a TE on day one of the draft next year, I might be the one to make an "offseason failure" thread next year. :brickwall

So no matter what they need to draft a LT next year? Wand only gives up 5 sacks while remaining a dominant run blocker and they still need to draft a LT? I'll wait for the season.

Wand may not give up any sacks at LT this year if our star offseason acquisition Riley starts at LT.

Wand was so good last year, they started pulling him on passing downs for a guy who got cut from the Browns this year before they even played a down of preseason football, and has essentially already lost his starters job to a guy that has been playing RT for 5 years. Maybe that explains why he only gave up 5 sacks. I'll stand by my statement, thankyaverymuch.

Trying sticking with the hypothetical--everything above is for the coming year and made no reference to the past year. If Wand starts full time in 2005 and gives up just 5 sacks you already have decided to take a (make that any) 1st day LT next year to replace him based on what he did in 2004? Go ahead and stand by that statement, thankyouverymuch.

They tried that one game and it was an utter failure. Why? The coaches never did it again because Wand was better than the guy they were replacing him with. Don't use a coaching mistake as proof Wand is bad. Wand played all of 15 games and missed the passing plays during that one game.

It is so "obvious" to people that Wand is bad that they don't realize McKinney is the weak link. If Pace had been in Wand's place last year, it would have done nothing to stop the constant pressure up the middle.

Watch the line play closely this year, and you'll see that replacing the LT isn't a panacea.

Pitts made a huge improvement his second year at LT - Wand may do the same. The coaches and some posters here are penalizing the "3 year project" because he was ahead of the curve and started his entire second season.
