    If I'm McNair...

    I fire Capers after we get blown out at home against the Steelers.

    I trade Carr for some first round draft picks, or for a better o lineman that's in the league right now.

    I tell the new coach to lose every game the rest of the season. So, basically just keep things the way they are.

    Then, with the first pick in next year's draft I take Matt Leinart of USC.

    If I got a high first rounder with my Carr trade, I package other draft picks and trade up to get a top 10 o lineman in what is known as an o lineman rich draft.

    We get a QB who has proven he can win under pressure. We get a new coach. We get a better o lineman or two, and we start this thing over again with a better situation than what we have at the moment.

    We spent a high first round pick on Carr and have (potentially) ruined him. Who in their right mind would give us anything better than a 4th round pick for him at this point? Very few player-for-player trades are made in the NFL, and almost no trades are made after the start of the season. And drafting Leinart next year would result in the same thing you're seeing now, just with a different name on the jersey.

    Just trying to have some fun...

    Joy killer. :rolleyes:
     
  5. The lineman we trade for has just had shoulder surgery but is checked out by our doctors and they say he'll be ready for the next season, we get 3 other lineman from other teams that we think are very good but turn out to be just expendable cast offs. Leinhart comes in a can't get the protection he needs and tends to rush things because he is on his back all the time. Having being used to time to throw, Leinhart starts get happy feet. Lienhart gets injured.

    Man this sounds so familiar......

    honestly at this point we would be lucky to get a 4th rounder for carr honestly i dont think there's any one that believes he will amount to anything. except some few remainding fans here that are in denial i say if we can get a 4th rounder lets take it and learn a lesson from it. and rebuild thats all we can do.

    Apparently our management didn't get the MEMO since the beginning of football that the games are won in the TRENCHES....and LOST.

    Lets just hope we can get Winston or D'Brick next year, and maybe a free agent guard, and hopefully Hodgdon will be ready to take over. I like Wade, Pitts, and Wiegert.

    LT D'BrickShaw Ferguson
    LG Chester Pitts
    C Drew Hodgdon
    RG Zach Weigert
    RT Todd Wade

    Cut Bradford. Replace with Mathis. Gaff in the slot. Norris, Davis in the back with Morency and Wells backing up.

    2nd Round, we trade up with our extra 3rd, and get Marcedes Lewis, TE from UCLA.

    Mathis could never replace Bradford because hes too small, doesnt know the playbook, and if he did replace Bradford, he would end up just like bradford, no passes thrown his way during the game and no looks. Now then what would your excuse be? Its that simple.

    This is just the first game. And the first game this year that all the starters have been asked to play hard. That is the trade off for keeping your starters fresh (and uninjured) through the preseason. The rhythm will come, the chemistry is there.

    The O-line is new together they will not look good every sunday. Just like Matthews, Munchak and those guys when they first started and got the snot knocked out of Gifford Nielsen and Cody Carlson. And remember how Warren Moon used to have to scramble a lot in the beginning. If we can keep the same line for at least 2 years straight then we can see if Carr is the man or not. Or we can just pull an uncle drayton and trade away all the talent.

    Do you even know what you are talking about?

    The point of the post was to address the O-line. And to your comment about the playbook, he can learn! Do you think he threw his playbook away?
