I think that people trying to talk themselves into a rookie or..choke...Beal as adeqaute replacements are fooling themselves. Much tougher to get a good pass rush against the LT. Hopefully we can be creative with blitz packages to make up for some of that, but I don't recall doing much blitzing last year.
If you think the doom restructure came as a result of manning wanting freeney, you've lost it too
