After watching that game , why would anyone bother to bring up what Hilton said about the O line play ? I could care less and if somebody called Hilton out for disappearing the last 2 games , I again could care less. This team's problem is whiffing on the 2013 draft , the 2014 draft , the 2015 draft and the 2016 draft. How many 'legit " (good starters) football players are there from those 4 drafts if Mewhort can't fully recover ?
Maybe 3 ? Geathers , Anderson (I'm being generous) and Kelly ?
I'm going to worry about Hilton calling out that hot mess of an Offensive line ?
And yet the name that keeps popping up is a career special teams coach — currently at KC, of course. At least we won’t have any competition for him. Of course he may have to spend a few years hiring and firing coordinators as he certainly doesn’t have any known coordinators to bring with him.
This is one of those 'he who is without sin' kind of comments, and I'm not with it.
It's not Hilton's place to publicly criticize his teammates, and in that regard, he shouldn't have said what he said, at least not to whom he said it and when.
But whether Hilton had a good game or a bad game, whether he was perfect or a complete joke from start to finish, what he said was clearly and obviously 100% true. The OL was abysmal, and we all know it. We don't have to talk about it in hushed tones and in dark corners, and it doesn't take a perfect person or player to recognize how bad the OL was.
We also don't have to act like the OL was on the only bad part of the game. There's plenty of blame to go around, but when you give up 10 sacks and a bunch of pressures, the OL is an obvious starting point.
