I'm with you on trying to see the other side of the coin than the doom & gloom crowd. But in your defense of BOB, I think you consistently overlook how much this team has been set back by improper evaluation of talent and the cascade effect it has had on draft picks & trades year over year. In 2 years, we've brought in 5 guys who are now playing guard or center (Kelemete, Fulton, Rankin, Howard, Scharping) and 3 of them were initially thought to be tackles (Rankin, Howard and Scharping). That doesn't seem like a good plan. If Rankin can't play T, then he's a G, right? Well, we just used a 1st and 2nd round pick that are now playing his position, so do we know if he can play G? Or is last year's 3rd round pick a bust already? The answer is that we don't know because of how they're deciding to evaluate these guys. And just like we don't know what we have in Rankin at G, next year we won't know what we have in Howard and Scharping at T. So looking on the bright side, hopefully it all just works out. But it still doesn't address whether or not it's the smartest way to go about building a team (which was my point).
