I think he was starting to get things moving in the right direction, but injuries to Brown, Colon, Pouncey, Gilbert, Adams, Cotchery, Mendenhall and finally Ben....derailed a lot of the progress that was going on.
It was either an injured Ben or a healthy Charlie Batch. I say we start Batch this week and play for the best draft pick we can find.
I hear what you are saying - but no NFL team plays "for a draft pick". Especially this one. We'll be on the field to win.
Thats known as a "loser" move in the NFL, to play for a pick. We just don't do it, ever.
