Our void at CB is serious. Saban's drafting of Jason Allen with the 16th overall pick in the 2006 draft immediately comes to mind. Along with images of Saban riding a giant mastodon into our collective asses.
I say Ireland needs to show what he can do relative to the gaping hole at [cornerback]. He must, absolutely must, draft a cornerback or two in the coming draft. And that isn't all. Ireland and Bill Parcells must identify and select a cornerback they have confidence can compete for a starting job as a rookie... That doesn't mean the rookie must start immediately. But he has to be a factor immediately because at least that makes other players at the position better as a result of the competition.
Will the Trifecta have to use their first-round pick to add the team's biggest need [nose tackle] considering Jason Ferguso is flirting with retirement after this season?...Funny thing is it was Dave Wannstedt and that troublesome regime who passed on selecting [Vince] Wilfork in the 2004 draft. Sure they took another Hurricane, Vernon Carey, with that top pick. But Wilfork would have gone a long way to setting the present regime up for success in the 3-4 scheme.
Jesus these two blogs just ruined my day. Is it like having a leisurely stroll in the park on a nice sunny day only to have a pigeon drop a shitlette onto your vanilla swirl ice cream, causing you to weep uncontrollably because you've been exercising and being disciplined about it and this was supposed to be your "off" day and this whole day was about that vanilla swirl cone as your reward for being so good, and instead of just saying "fuck man!" and buying another one, you descend into a dark bottomless spiral of madness and dementia that ends up with you in some seedy $9 motel off Route 66 with a dead hooker in the trunk of the car you stole? Yes. Yes, it is.
