    The OC needs to be fired. I wish McAdoo was too. They kept all the Eli coaches and said eff the rest of the team.

    You win and lose games at the line.

    Amazing they won 11 games with this razor thin line. Their number 1 priority has to be a left tackle. If they ignore that again, we're gonna see the same results.

    Don't worry. He's got this.

    I am sure that he is referring to the OC sullivan. And yes, Sullivan should be fired or demoted.

    Fix that atrocious o line, starting with left tackle. MacaDouche hands over play calling to someone else. We do those two things and we go on a deep playoff run next year.

    Coaching Staff:
    New Offensive Coordinator:
    I said in another thread , i prefer the HC not doing the play calling, I think it's more beneficial for the HC to control the Game / Personnel. Especially if its a rookie or a young head coach.
    Norv,Chip,Whisenhunt

    We Need to put up Points . We have the WR core to do it. The play calling wasn't great Vs the packers Either time. yes we had drops but what happen in the 2nd half ?

    Roster:
    Offensive Line... TightEnd.... Both Need to be upgraded i like Tye as a #2 tightend but he doesnt have the physical traits to be a game changer

    Offensive line is pathetic ... We need new Tackles . JJ isnt the answer at RG .

    I want to trade off players i want to get more picks to shuffle around in the draft.

    Trade off Veeren / Harris


    Jennings & JT thomas will be gone that opens up gap.

    We are close but we have some pointless contracts.
    Why was rainey returning the kick off thats what harris gets paid for .

    Before anything, I'd like to fix the OL, and I think it should start in FA with finding a RG to pay for, because we rarely get any push in the running game. There are some good options probably hitting the market. LT is more tricky, and probably should be fixed through the Draft.

    Last night I think proved once again the need for keeping JPP. And I'd honestly let Hankins go. He's not bad, but IMO not worth committing to.

    Cruz said he doesn't want to be anywhere else. We'll see if that holds up through money talks, but sounds like he's a realist and will take a cut.

    I think Adams can emerge, but yeah. Gotta be done with Donnell and bring in a reliable veteran who can block.

    I'd like to see them treat the oline the way they did the d last year. Where we may need one or 2 guys but they just go big, get 2 known starters and then some quality, low cost, high play guys.
