We can also open up a personal can of worms regarding my issues with Todd Grantham - not only can poor tackling be coached, some bulk added, but I'd argue that BR is poorly coached at the college level (think my opinion of mid-2000s UVa players - the Al Groh effect - and how when you can identify supremely substandard coaching in college, you can identify value in prospects).
These are not angle/instinct issues ala Gomes, but more mental/size issues that are coachable/correctable IMO. If we can get DHall to put his hat in on tackling, I'm not sure why we can't get the 2" taller and 25 lb heavier Rambo to do the same.
Again, this is why he is a 2nd rounder and not a top 15 guy.
I would certainly hold off trading Cousins this season (absent a Godfather offer) until theres another "Cousins" developing on the roster. I'd argue that its easier to find an Aboushi-level player (and I like him a lot) than a Cousins level player.Trading him means you have to go out and find a good backup QB all over again this offseason.
I don't think Rex deserves to even be on the team, I don't want him lurking as the backup.
But for Aboushi I might do it. Polumbus is that bad. Aboushi would be a substantial and immediate upgrade.
Citing how bad Polumbus is Steve almost has me thinking you are considering need and not pure-BPA!
