Ever since I heard about the Washington suspension I have anticipated that we will be looking to add someone else to our roster at ILB. We have not heard much chatter except next man up.While I love the next man up mentality I am not confident the replacement is on our roster.
In my mind Foote was brought in to back up and push Minter not Washington. Our backups have potential but are they really talented enough to replace a fast playmaker like Washington? I don't think so. We saw what happened last year with Dansby and Brinkley while washington was out-now imagine no Dansby. That said, I am confident that Bowles can scheme to keep the D in the top 10 and Acho and Alexander can supplement at ILB-not to mention our offense is "light years" ahead and able to put up more points.
What I hope we hear soon is like last year when we signed Abraham and Winston late in the offseason we bring someone in, someone with Speed, like Washington.
If I had my way I would be looking at every roster and preparing a deal that sends Housler (Giants?), Powers or Okafor along with a draft pick for someone that can come in and play here and adequately replace a star like Washington. Like I said I think we will be competitive regardless, but when the game is tight and we need a big play, is there a guy currently on the team at ILB we to make that play? Will Jerry Jones and the Cowboys take our guy?
What do you think?
