And Dimitroff will still draft a skill position early in the draft. Throw that filter crap out the window.

Both lines need attitude and players with mentality of running people over.

I agree. Combined we have the two worst lines in the NFL if you grade them together, which is bloody embarrassing A team full of soft primaddona's. Osi was good last night but all the other D-Line men were pants And the less I say about the O-Line the better or else I will just go on a rant. Trueblood is abysmal, the way he got beat for the strip sack was painful; It was way too easy

Too many injuries in key positions now affecting the more experienced players....however, there have been some very unlikely results in the first few weeks and whilst I agree with many posts on here, if we can at least get a couple of of results under the belt there will be something to build on. Really need for losing not to become the habit.
The games we were winning in the last couple of minutes last year we are now losing but against teams we shouldnt be losing against.

Roll on week 7 and roll on Wembley !!!

We're done for the season, not a good way for Tony G to finish his career

The coaching needs to be improved or replaced and both lines need massive work to bring them up to what they need to be.

With Julio done for the year I'd say pass the butter because we're toast!

We need to invest some high picks on both the lines. There's no point having a potentially high powered offense if your QB can't be protected! Look at the 49ers as they have I think 3 first round picks on their O-Line and it shows! We have one and even that was considered a reach!

Also needed - some semblance of a consistent pass rush. Osi has done fine this year but if he gets doubled then receivers are having 5+ seconds to get open and I think even I could manage that. Sure Biermann's injury hasn't helped here but more options outside of that are needed. Also needed would be a Vince Wilfork type to clog up the middle and get a bit of a push on passing downs. Our coverage would look much better without having to consistently cover people for more than 5 seconds! Although I think we need an upgrade at Free Safety too!

Haven't got any names in mind but I'm going to watch a bit more college football to try and get ideas and some possibilities.

Middle of the pack at 7-9, so even in a bad year we'd still be picking outside the top 10.

Too bad as Cleveland would have plenty of picks to move about with.
