Default Quickest way for McD to win in the long run!

McD has 3 or 4 years to rebuild the OL and DL with talent thru both the draft and FA.

McD should concentrate on the OL and DL in 2010 and 2011 by using his first, second and third rounds each year on OL or DL players and sign via FA one or two players for the OL or DL.

Thats the quickest way to rebuild both sides of the ball and build a foundation on both sides of the ball for the next 10-12 years. Then in the last year of his contract in season 4, McD should be ready to take us deep in the playoffs, a SB appearence or SB victory.

Now of course getting great talent for the OL and DL in the draft may require that we don't win for the next two years, but hey, then again teams in the NFL that have great OL's and DL's endured losing seasons are rewarded with drafting higher, where the top talents happen to be.

So for the next 2 years, should McD only win 5 or 6 games, we fans have got to support him, b/c in year 4 of McD's contract we could be in the SB or close to it with dominate OL's and DL's.

This blank check - is it 2 years? 3? 4?

Based on this rationale, the fans should nod and smile until McDaniels retires, regardless of his record.

RastaSally, we won 8 games this year and you are almost unbearable. 2 years of 5-6 wins? Nobody would ever know what you are typing because everyone would have you on ignore..Everybody. Nevertheless, OL/DL is where it's at.

Your title doesn't even make sense.

What's the shortest way to win in the short run?

The OP is BS, but the idea of building the O and D lines is sound. But the Oline is not totally bereft of talent......

there is no reason to believe we can't have a very competitive team capable of a playoff run in 2010.

think of the team he took over. that defense was so terrible a high school jv football team could have pounded them like John Holmes. he basically got here and rebuilt a defense and turned it from laughingstock to a good NFL defense(minus the late season collapse)

there is no reason that through FA and the draft, that we couldn't make this team even better. to be completely honest i will be extremely disappointed in this team if we aren't at least 10-6 and competing for the division crown next season.

Funny, you sound like Poops 8 months ago and even more wrong.

Are we going to have any offensive playmakers out this genius?

Who do we have now that Cutler, Marshall, Scheffler and Hillis are likely gone?

Orton, Gaffney and Royal while we lose our OL coach?

Champ and Graham are both heading into end of contract, backloaded deals.

Our secondary is either old or very questionable.

We have no depth at any position now on offense after just 1 year.We don't even have a long snapper that can play center.

We couldn't even beat KC or Oakland at home to make the playoffs after going a miracle 6-0.

Now we are going to give away BM, who almost singlehandedly won 2 games on bad throws? And Stokely a 3rd?

Hate to be Negative Nancy, but it's all true.

We looked like a team to contend with someone like Nolan and a RB last year, considering our weekass division. Now, I'm not sure McBeavis can hold the team together.

So you propose we lose on purpose the next 2 years to get high draft picks so we can draft linemen...you and reality just dont hang out much, do you?

While I agree bolster lines is key so is adding legit speed to a pretty slow offense. Find a QB we can actually see as a longterm answer.

give me a break with the QB talk. the way our line performed this season it wouldn't have mattered if we had Peyton, Brees, Rivers, Brady or anyone else behind center because it is impossible to look great as a QB when the line is allowing defenders to get right in your face half a second after the ball is snapped.

If you noticed I listed QB last. I had lines and speed on O higher on my list.
Just because I want a QB upgrade does not mean McD will.

Rasta, I think this the first post of yours I've ever read where you didn't go out of your way to blow Marshal. For this, I rep you. Good job, buddy.

Yea, well... just more than 1 playoff win in ten years.

Let's start there.
