Additionally, I think the FA aquisition of a decent WR with deep skills has merit. I also think that we are much more likely to find such a player for a reasonable price, as compared to the OL situation.

I'd actually prefer that we go after a really tall WR with good hands.  Which makes me wonder why we never put Walter Young on the field--could he really do worse than what we have?

Getting Taylor would cement our DL for the next year or two, and the FO could go heavy OL in the draft this year, then draft at DL the year after that.

Why not?  I was upset when I found out that the Patriots got Welker for nothing, when we could have had him for the same price and gotten him out of their division.  Seems like they would have been willing if we would have.  I don't think we'll do this, but I'm not opposed to it.

However, I think we have to face the reality that we are probably 2 offseasons away from putting together an adequate Oline and reasonable depth at Dline.  The only thing that might save us is if Colon, Starks, and Simmons somehow pull it together and we can find some people to fill in the rest of the gaps.

One tiny bright spot in the line play last night:  Hampton nearly coming up with a pick at the goal line in coverage.

Yeah, I saw that a laughed out loud.

 It's shocking that a guy who has to waddle his way off the field can get back and almost make that play.  

"Dreith said I hit Sipe too hard. I hit him as hard as I could. Brian has a chance to go out of bounds and he decides not to. He knows I'm going to hit him. And I do. History."
