These debates often get bogged down did he invest enough resources or not. I find that to be almost beside the point. He did invest in the left side of our line, but besides Pugh he has invested badly. On the right side, he hasn't made really any progress since McKenzie/Snee left and his only real investment was Schwartz. At the end of the day our OL has been awful for five years (this would be the sixth), with no running game, shaky pass protection etc. You can have all the talent at the skill position in the world (which we don't--we have Beckham and a whole lot of guys that aren't proven at WR/Te and an old BM), but you need an offensive line to function. Besides Mcadoo's first year at OC, our offense really hasn't functioed since Hurricane Sandy. Eli is now getting old and there is little doubt that his skills have eroded somewhat, but the real crime is that we had a QB who was a proven winner and our GM had just so many years to rebuild this line and failed--irrespective of what we invested or didn't in position. Anyone who has a brain knows Eli flourishes with protection and has great difficulty when he isn't well-protected. That Reese failed to protect him is a failure of gigantic proportions. As an aside, the organization decided that they couldn't fix the OL fast enough so they even tried to change offenses, one that limits Eli's errors for sure, but also took away what made him great--the intermediate passes.
