Disagree...strongly. Plan A failed because Daniels (their best OL) and Massie got injured and Whitehair (their 2nd best OL) got "Covided." Pace found quality OL players who no one else drafted. That's good ****, man.
I'm big fans of both Daniels and Whitehair. But when all these guys were healthy this offensive line as a unit was terrible. TERRIBLE.
Pace filled in some practice squad players that nobody else wanted and got lucky. Plan A was failing hard. Lets not be giving Pace credit for this. Lets also not forget it was soon after Nagy gave up play calling that we started seeing some cohesiveness on the offensive side in multiple areas.
Yes, but he brought them in though. Could plan A have failed because if scheme as well? If thats the case its on Nagy more then it would be on Pace.
You don't have to give him credit, fine. But the line got better the last half of the season, regardless, and Montgomery (who Pace also drafted) looked very good behind it.
Why is there no middle ground? Ryan Pace could have been fired and it would have been justified. But he is not this terror of a GM who has led his team to 3 straight 3-13 seasons. He's been OK, average, sub par, some good, some bad.
