I’ve noticed lots posts saying a good draft and free agency could fix everything next year. It’s not impossible. I actually saw the NYG do it, but that’s the only time I can recall. Generally even if you can assemble 5 functional players it takes 6-8 games of playing together for them to get functional. The Cards might accelerate the process by making the trade with Washington. That deadline is 10/29. Then they’d at least get one side of the line functional as Sweezy looks decent. Of course Williams could end up at LT but at least the Cards would be 2/5 there. Cole is not yet an option as he still lacks the power to be a top flight center. I’m not ruling out Gaillord developing, but I’m not counting on it either. All I’m saying is I think it will be 2021 before this team can compete for the playoffs based on the O-line alone. .
