Let's be honest he nailed the obvious= Hankins, Simon, Sheard, Hooker, and Wilson

The rest of the draft and the rest of the FA's may not contribute shit this year if ever

Ballard actually did address C/OG depth with Schwenke. Unfortunately got injured near the end of OTAs, which is even less the fault of the GM and the head coach. IMHO they shouldn't have released Blythe before TC but maybe he saw the writing on the wall and asked to be let go.

As far as depth at other positions, you can't expect him to fix everything in one off season.

I can't help in the back of my mind wonder if Ballard and Irsay think of this year as a rebuilding yer. 16+ under the cap, no real backup QB. Starting QB and starting center both down to at the latest, mid-season.

The beat goes on with no end in sight.

Don't know if it will save him this time around though. I just hate changing schemes. Then the players have to learn it. You have to draft players to fit it. Whole thing is a headache.

It's pick your poison. If we could stay with a 3-4 I would be happy. A change might rejuvenate the team.

Dude, a good coach can and should make it work. You can't stick with what you KNOW won't work because you hate making changes.

Like a bandaid, just rip it off fast.

We don't have great 3-4 players and most can play either system. Your concerns are dumb

Nah I just hate that everyone is giving Ballard a pass on every move because he's the new "nice guy" GM when there's already been some Grigson like moves IMO

Nice tinted glasses. While it was obvious that retaining Pagano was Irsay's call, trying to say that Ballard did not address depth issues is pretty silly. He brought in a ton of guys for depth at many different positions.

Walk Worthy,
IMO his draft was weak, Hooker was a value pick Wilson was a need Basham was a waste when you signed Simon, Sheard, Mingo, and still have Ayers

So far Basham, Hairston, and Walker look terrible. ILB was a dire need coming into the draft and you wait until late to draft Walker??? Every great defense has that leader in the middle and it's still a hole on this D, you grabbed your Ngata (Hankins) your Ed Reed (Hooker) so wheres Ray Lewis???
