    no one said anything about getting things right every time. When I know it's a bad pick then I think they should know it too. Ramczyk was the no brainer pick at OT that year. That was an easy one to get right. Nothing you say can change that.

    Very disappointing game, only bright spot was Bradley Chubb disrupting things other than that, nothing much to get excited about.

    I know it is only preseason but this horrible play tends to carry over to the regular season.

    Not to mention the scouting reports and draft projections. Bolles was projected first and second round - I donít think there was any consensus that had Bolles as the #1 LT. I think he was consistently projected behind Ramczyk.

    He was not a no brainer pick over Bolles. The class was considered to be a very weak o line class with no real standouts. They drafted Bolles on athleticism. Ramcyzk is the better player but that was not certain at the time.

    There were more bright spots than Chubb, although he played on another level. You sort of need to look at individual plays to see the potential. The offense still needs work but there are some positive signs there. We need to finish drives but they showed improvement.

    It's more like the toilet paper roll that falls in the toilet, but you have to use it anyway after letting it dry because you are too poor for more toilet paper.

    Not really. I know it's disheartening to see your team outplayed but preseason success is rarely an indicator of regular season success.

    As long as you put a new roll on the holder, the spouse is happy.

    agreed. Here is a blurb about Bolles:

    School: Utah | Year: Junior. Played only one year at major-college level after transferring from a junior college. Started 13 games at left tackle in 2016 and gave up just two sacks. Had seven holding and seven false start penalties. Will be 25 years old next month. Has elevated stock because of the lack of quality linemen in this draft, but he has a good chance to find success in the NFL. Good pick with some risk.

    sound familiar?

    Very familiar. He also had some other challenges that I wonít get into here. Until this camp heís been difficult to coach because he gets frustrated easily. Thatís slowed his development and he already had a late start. Iíve been very patient supporting him but he needs to put a game together without holding back the offense (pun intended).

    Not really cause the toilet paper can still get the job done.

    As I recall everyone in the draft thread that year thought we were going with Ramcyzk. Then somebody brought up a rumor that Elway was enamored with Bolles and everyone went, "Oh...no...no...."
