While we are struggling to get a true #2 WR, some are feeling the next move for Beane is to get a true 3 down RB on this team. With an aging Diggs and still not around him, it makes sense to flip to a stronger running game with a back that has more raw talent then what we have. I am no where near 100% behind this BUT.. If holds true that the run SHOULD open up for better passing then what are the other options? Lets just assume we are done looking for a true #2 WR for the sake of argument and figure out how we can make this team into more of a running machine where we run 40% and pass 60% ++. Well lets look deeper into what we need to pull this switch off. Just for giggles, yes? 1. Short up the left side of the line. Check. 2. A solid TE. Check. 3. A RT to compete better? Hmm? 4. a PROVEN high end trusted RB out of the draft? This does not seem so hard does it? Why McD would want to make such quick changes? That is easy... He is now calling the shots on defense, and we have a OC 1 year on that McD feels he trusts that is likely saying... "If you cant get me a true #2 WR on this team then we need to change!!!" Also, it has been well documented on these boards that Beane has been chasing a RB for years that can fit this type of bill. Though I do not necessarily like this direction, at this point it may be the easier direction to go in. For how long have we said everything we do is JA and nothing else? This will get instant eyerolls, pukes and disagreements but I get it.. How many times on these boards have said... we need our Thurman Thomas?
