    The point is, we were looking for a blocking FB and ended up with no blocking fullback or effective blocking TE after letting Fasano walk... and with or without Albert, that void could well have meant 2 games. If we can't shore up the OL through the draft and waiver wire pickups as rosters get winnowed down, hopefully we can find a way to install better component pieces in the backfield and TE to compensate for the OL's shortcomings.
    No matter which player or combination of players we signed I think we can all agree that that $23 million Ireland decided he would prefer to collect interest on sitting in Ross' bank account rather than use it on actual football players would have made a big difference in getting us one more win.

    IF Lazor follows what Philly did last year, no sure thing, they did not have a FB either. It is very strange that we really wanted Leach, and then went with no one at all.

    I do believe that Sims will be much better than a year ago in blocking, and expect some improvement from Clay, who is still adapting to TE.

    There seemed to be no plan to replace the effectiveness of Fasano.
