    Agree.
    He is a mentor for that D backfield and can still cover. Draft a guy and let him learn from a good vet.

    Here is my synopsis of the season.
    * Took advantage of a weak last place schedule to win the division
    * Management has ignored the offensive line for too long
    * Our secondary is awful
    *Bill O'Brien is a terrible play caller

    Watt started 16 games to Clowney’s 15.

    Disagree on management ignoring OL. They brought in 3 FAs to start coming into season and drafted another to compete in 3rd round.

    It’s a lot easier to fix the OL when you have a 1st/2nd round pick. And there’s an idiot team (who somehow didn’t fire their GM... Jets) trading three 2nd round picks to move up three spots in the draft. And the best OL prospect in a decade falls in your lap...

    The drum line and surrender towels always lead to a loss, my wife knew it when we walked in

    Yes. Why were the towels not blue or red. Indy was wearing all white.

    Because we've drafted linemen in every draft of the last four years. Because we've brought in FA linemen every year the last four years. They completely ignored the OL.

    Maybe we need better coaches. I wonder if Jim Harbaugh is willing to come back to the NFL?

    Bill OBrien is so insecure he would never agree to another competent coach on this team. He needs yes men who will co-sign to anything he says.

    At what point are you guys going to think about why that is. No chance we’ve brought in all trash players. At some point you have to look at coaching and acknowledge they aren’t getting it done.

    I think I’d blow up the defense this offseason.

    Get a new philosophy on defense. Continually bending and breaking isn’t cutting it. As a unit the defense doesn’t deliver. Individuals put up stats but the unit doesn’t scare anyone with a competent OC.

    Watt and Clowney’s values are sky high right now. That’s a lot of money that could be spent elsewhere; like in protecting the franchise. I’d definitely be listening to offers. Do I think one person can replace each guy? Not at all. But I would prefer a group of guys that buy in and play their roles/responsibilities.

    Also, probably wouldn’t bring Mathieu back unless it was a team friendly deal. Reid, Hal, and KJ could man both positions.

    Come on 80 can't be coaching. Have seen the precision, timing and execution of this offense...
    When your most reliable play is your quarterback running for his life, you've got a coaching problem!
