I totally agree. I do think Harris has promise, but he's more than a year away yet and it's unfortunate he was placed in such a situation. Then again, were it not for the injuries we may not have seen him for the potential he does have. Next year with an off season of work and OTAs will tell a lot about him, but you're right, we need some stability and some talent. The career ending injuries to McNeil and Dielman were sudden, and by both happening at the same time really crippled this offense. Had they not occurred in the same year, we probably would have a much better situation on the OL.
