However, Rosie didn't do too much after leaving Chicago, but to his credit, I'll put most of the blame to a severe hip injury he had in his first year with the Pats. However, old JA knew the necessity of a good O-Line and he proved how important it was by the moves he made early in his time with Chicago. Remember our O-Line in our 2006 SB run (John Tait, Reuben Brown, Olin Kreutz, Roberto Garza, Fred Miller). Not exactly star studded, but better than we would have for years after that, and they got the job done. Lest we forget, he also drafted Marc Colombo with the 29th pick in the 2002 draft (ironically, the exact same spot he selected Carimi and ended up with an eerily similar injury, both in their rookie year), so he knew how important it was. Like most GM's old JA had some major hits and some boneheaded misses, but this is common among ALL GM's. Some ARE better at judging talent than others and some are just lucky/unlucky. The real road to JA's downfall was after the 2006 season, and that is when public opinion of his Head Coach was at an all time high and said Head Coach was given much more latitude and input on personnel decisions. So, I'll grant everyone the right to hate on the old GM because I'm right there with ya; all I'm saying is that some of that hate is misplaced.
