Last year I thought our o-line woes were huge and we would have to do something. We did. We drafted a pro bowl center and made it to the big game. even then we used a backup center when Maurkice went down.
I've come to trust the FO when they yawn at all these free agents and then bring in someone like Flozell to get us to the big dance on the cheap.
Great post. +1. Truer words haven't been spoken. I think, for the fanbase, it's exciting to see us do something. After it's all said and done, we as a fanbase move on and go back to the same mentality reality. Our men are built from the draft.

Just like you said about the Hotel signing last season to put us over the hump, I'd atleast love a 3rd down back for Ben.
