Gman329 Posted November 2, 2015 Share Posted November 2, 2015 I am not sure Reese gets the blame he had some bad draft picks, some didn't make it due to injuries and some he drafted on potential that never came to be. He missed on free agency quite a bit though...Walton, Baas, Schwartz and resigning Beason. He's been better in the draft the past few years. With the depletion of their safeties Collins is playing out of position and thwy have to drop him into to coverage more than he should be as a FS. He should be a thumper similar to Chancellor. I am not sure who blame the Moore project on. I think the coaches have done a poor job developing him for sure and he learns nothing in limited playing time, but has Coughlin "He can't trust him." It's possibly he's just beyond developing and Spags said he's worked with him "quite a bit." So I guess you can someone like Moore on Reese, but there is talent there and I guess he figured they would find a way to harness that talent Granted Walton, Baas & Schwartz have not worked out as we hoped but you have to remember the circumstances when those guys were signed. We were desperate for OL talent and depth and, especially Baas & Schwartz, those guys were considered the top FA OLs at the time. Give Reese credit for landing the players he targeted and cut him some slack if he had to overpay a little, because he didn't have much choice. If he hadn't gone after them and we had lesser FA's or rookies, drafted and/or undrafted, you'd be screaming about why didn't we go get Schwartz...or whoever. With Beason, we all knew the injury risk but we all thought it was worth a roll of the dice. Hasn't worked out but again, I can't fault Reese for taking a shot with him.
