My point when I explain what the Colts did in 2013 is to remind posters here that we DID try to address the problem.
Posters repeated ask why hasn't Grigson tried to do more sooner? What was he waiting for? I'm simply reminding fans that Grigson invested serious money and draft picks hoping to solve our OL problem in his 2nd year. We needed to give those moves time to either pan out and work, or not pan out and get cut.
In the last few years, he's added Mewhort, Good, and Kelly, and Reitz improved the quality of his game.
But we are still not a cohesive unit yet. Unfortunately, the OL often takes time to gell and became a solid working unit. And that's where we are now..... waiting for the unit to come together.
But we will likely take a step back this week. Good is out with a bad back, and I'm not sure how he's going to get replaced?
I haven't seen one Chargers game all year not even Preseason football. I know Philip Rivers will play lights out like he normally does. However, it's difficult to make a prediction or score off a team I haven't watched once since Sept. 11th though.
I guess I abstain from any projections due to a lack of visual evidence or game viewership on my part. If our DBs are banged up our out, Rivers will have a field day with our secondary unfortunately.
so true, but they are as banged up on offense as we've been on D. Looking at their skill positions and they will be without Gates, Oliver, and Johnson in addition to Woodhead and Allen... I guess I'm not buying Melvin Gordon, yet.
I'm a homer all the way, but I still think that we win this one by more than a TD.
1 less than glowing complement about our GM does not mean that I am throwing out the baby with the bathwater CC1. You will recall that I complemented Grigs on Kelly, Anderson, & Parry correct?
Not exactly demanding that Grigs be tarred & feathered am I now? It's a little hard to make the case that SW1 is Mr. "negativity" after that. Also, there's a difference between crucifying a GM & pointing out that no front office execute gets gold stars for failures that never came to fruition BTW. The NFL isn't Kindergarten; No one gets a participation ribbon for just trying or showing up.
