I don't think any thread poster here blames 1 simple person, position, or issue on our piss poor season (after another). I personally love to target McNabb BUT, he didn't volunteer to walk on the field in Purple we purchased him. It is a collective group of problems that for some reason the owners & staffing cannot seem to sort out. Is it really that big of a mess? I guess, but I don't see how roster changes and disipline (like benching) doesn't correct our problems. Isn't Bud Grant still in the office? He was the king of not letting players slack & seemed to know how to turn a team around. (Gruden knew how to turn a team around too. Don't get me wrong I love Frazier but maybe we need someone with a meaner personality to make this work)
Look around this site and thread after thread is our collective reasons for this season being so depressing & frustrating. We don't dissagree with each other that our team lacks what it needs, we just have all our own collective opinions on how to fix it. Now if someone would listen to us......

I'd like for us to use two of our top 3 picks in the draft on offensive line. We didn't really address it last year, but we had other holes to fill.
I think the lack of an offseason really hurt us, I don't think we would have drafted Ponder in the first round if we had signed McNabb in March like we would have in an ordinary year, instead we could have used that pick on an offensive lineman like Nate Solder at tackle or Mike Pouncey at center/guard.
If we solve the LT situation, we can bump Johnson inside, apparently he's a natural guard anyway. So put him at RG and use Herrera for depth, the guy's been declining every year since 07.
I think you plug in a talented LT and the whole line gets instantly better. Throw a center in there who can hold his own and this offense changes completely.

Childress stated it all started up front when he was hired In 2006 & vowed to fix it. The only OL man we drafted during his regime were;
C: Sullivan & Ryan Cook
Is play calling to blame for receivers dropping passes?
Is play calling to blame for the lack of holes for AD to run thru?

I told you in the absolute acme of your run to the SB under Favre & co. that you had o-line difficulty.
Totally dismissed me because of my fandom for the Pack. I was right, you were wrong, imo.
