With a lot of hindsight, that is the one that hurts. If we’d moved Hooker forward, we might have one of the great 1-2 defensive units with Carlisle/Hurley, and Hooker would potentially have 2-3 years of forward experience and might be kicking 50+ a year. Maybe Carlisle would have Hooker’s AA.
Carlisle may yet find himself forward yet. Word is they’re going to experiment with McCartin in defence & since Brown is very much a defender only you wonder how all play in the same team. Do they play the 3 as defenders? I think not. Only Bruce & Membrey up front, they definitely need another tall-ish forward. Wouldn’t it be ironic?
