Barnum and Bailey Browns...taking specialization to a whole new level?



Let me get this right.  

We just aquired another 5foot9 165lbs defensive back, Tra Battle.  And another 7foot 290lbs offensive tackle, Corey Hilliard?  What is this, Barnum and Bailey?

Are they to form "Master Blaster" from Mad Max "Beyond Thunderdome"?  What super innovative game plan and rhetoric will we be insulted with this time, to justify the use of bodies thus proportioned?  We had "hybrid", we´ve had 3-technique, 4-technique..., we´ve had all purpose back, all kinds of nifty shifty descriptors.

Am I alone, in just wanting the guys with physiques suited to their positions and obligations on the largest variety of plays...talent, ability, versatility?  Not having to alternate players like it´s a carousel?

I´m risking sounding like an athleto-fascist here, but come on, can´t we ask for people that are physically suited towards playing professional football, properly proportioned to endure and succeed at a certain position?

I´m not surprised if an offense has a playbook the size of a telephone book, but the defense?  Just play your assignment and area, and at the end of the day, you´ll have done alright.  The offense initiates the play, it makes sense that they employ plays, the defense has and always will react.  I don´t want guys out of position, because the defensive coordinator used the wrong play, in guessing what the offense might do.  Listen defensive players, in the end, you have to be where the action is, no one will have your back if you are out of position, because only you and the defensive coordinator know, that you were where the defensive "play" put you, the fans will simply jeer you.
