If this is my rant thread then I'm going to list every single stupid thing I can think of that has brought this franchise to its current state.
I'll start with OL because I don't think I can make it through the whole list at one time.
- Cutting Ryan Lilja after the 09 season
- Bringing in Andy Alleman and Adam Terry to "bolster" the OL after cutting Lilja. Both were cut before the season started.
- Cutting Kyle Devan (starting for the Eagles now) instead of the worthless Mike Pollak and the even more worthless Jamey Richard (who has now also been cut for some guard Denver cut).
- Cutting Jacques McClendon, Mike Tepper, and Jake Kirkpatrick instead of the worthless Mike Pollak and the even more worthless Jamey Richard.
- Trading a 1st and 3rd round pick to take Tony Ugoh, then waiting too long to cut his worthless carcass. During this time Bill Polian said Ugoh was better than D'Brickashaw Ferguson. LOL.
- Taking 3 guards in the 08 draft as a way to "bolster" the OL. 2/3 are gone and the 3rd is worthless
- Not even calling Charlie Johnson during the '11 offseason, even after Manning took less money and specifically mentioned him as someone to retain with the money.
- Starting Jeff Linkenbach twice in a row at RT this year when a rookie they traded up to get, Ben Ijalana, sits on the bench waiting for a shot.
- Running off Howard Mudd
