sucks Eli and the game plan attack was on point first qtr. without drops i think we score at least 13 to as much as 21 - 0. that start would have been amazing for our D. offense let us down, that hail marry didnt help for sure. in addition to that 2nd half the online was back to trash we had drives killed by holding by sacks.
the problem is not just the oline , i highly doubt eli dropped off that much from his 35 TD year last year. run game big drop off. 100 yards a game rushing last year on a 6 win team and 87 this year on a 11 win team. you would think winning more games the run game would be better.
i think play calling was completely different. just look at 1st qtr we were creative we passed like 7 straight downs at one point then we were winning 6-0 and seemed like our game plan changed. what did mcadoo think we were going to win 9-0? how do you run on 3rd 11 with jennings no less?
and wing picked a bad day to have his worst game, OBJ ditto.
i think we are in good shape cap wise, i'm pretty sure even with all the money we spent we had 15-20 mil in cap space(should have been used on a LT!!!!) 2017 we will have 40 mil in cap space i think 50 if we cut DRC and Cruz
defense got better as the season went on but i doubt they keep everyone.
I think they let hankins go and keep JPP. i think pugh gets a new contract. maybe OBJ? might be a good idea to sign him before AB gets his next contract.
If there is a LT that is above avg they must sign him and move flowers to RT. every single game either he allowed a sack or holding which i'm sure killed 98% of those drives. no LT was graded worse than him in all of football. In addition, Eli got rid of ball quicker this season than any season in his career.
sign LT, draft guard in round 1 or 2 if we cut DRC CB in round 1 or 2. LB/QB later rounds. ohhhhhh and a real TE would be nice. lets tune into pats football and see our boy bennett have a great playoffs
players that might be cut AP and Julius Thomas. I can see both wanting to join our team.
