Protecting the QB (like the French Army).

With the protection as good as it has been so far, I expect Kolb and Vick to trading weeks between concussions, contusions and broken ribs.  They might want to get Garcia back  (Shut up, I know, not available) and put Kafka on IR to protect him.  The Tight Ends should carry little shovels this year to dig their quarterbacks out of the turf after sacks.  How fast can they dig out the QB during a 2 minute drill?  Now that's clock management. I have a funny feeling Vick will be talking like Mohammed Ali by the end of the season.

Kolb looked like a Chia pet after they planted his head in the ground during game one.  He was about as  close as you can get to having a piano dropped on your head. Thinking about it, I guess what we really need a good cartoon quarterback - someone you can flatten and then he pops right back up again - and I guess Vick will do.  Smart move Andy. 

Since this is the way it seems it will go this season, I think that the games would be more entertaining if they pipe in those cartoon "Whang!" and "Splat” and “Boingg!!" noises every time our QB suffers a potentially career ending tackle.  Woo-hoo.  And then the opposing teams could do professional wrestling aerial moves on our QBs rather than just boring old horse collars and face masks. Considering the QB’s are sitting ducks, we might as well enjoy watching them getting maimed.

Or maybe… just maybe… Andy could stop dicking around with the offensive talent players and sure-up the Offensive line.  Just a thought.... But hey, what do I know, I'm an optimist.
