Radiohead Posted September 1, 2015 Share Posted September 1, 2015 I don't think I can take it any more.Dimitroff has ignored and undervalued building a competent Offensive Line for years and years, save the Matthews pickup which seems to be a hair over mediocre at this point.Other than that, he's placed a premium on high risk guys (Mike Johnson, Lamar Holmes) and whiffed on just as many high round picks (Peter Konz, Sam Baker).-- In 2013 he didn't even take an Offensive Lineman when they had 8 picks.From 2011-2015, he's taken only 5 OLs total, while conversely taking 9 DBs.-- Now don't get me wrong, the Falcons needed help in the Secondary, but disconcerting cracks in the O-Line became pretty apparent in 2012 on the run to the NFC Championship game and just to reiterate, he didn't take a single OL in the 2013 Draft.Why even retain Matt Ryan if you consistently ignore addressing his pocket protection?-- The times he did try to slyly address it and whiffed, he just ignored it again the next year and made one cheap move to try and cover his error with moves that haven't panned out.It seems like Quinn and Dimitroff have decent chemistry, but really, the Falcons needed to get a GM that was focused on one thing and one thing only...FIXING THE **** LINES.
