I don't understand, okie and Sheldon, why you presume so many changes should Ray Drew play. As I wrote this morning, there will still be 3 Nat. OL,1 Nat. WR, 1 Nat. FB,1 Nat. DT and 1 Nat. S for 7 starters. Yes, it will be difficult to play with 4 Int. WRs at the same time, but it can be done. You just have to replace Rutley by an Int. WR. Jabar Westerman, who played mainly DE while in BC, could also alternate with/replace an Int. DE in some situation. Is it the best scenario having 4 Int. WRs on the field at the same time? To me no! Presently they are 2-3, next too last in average passes per game and next to last in time of possession. Yes, they are the best in points scored against them, but if the other teams offence remain on the field 4 or 5 or 6 minutes more than the Als, they-las- will have less time to score.

I expect that with most plays, the Als will have a Nat. FB playing; some time it could be Beaulieu and other time Toure; presently, when they play 4 Int. WRs, Beaulieu comes out.

Maybe I miss something but for me the addition of Drew will not bring many changes. Unless they play Drew, they won't know what his contribution will be.
