Re: AFC South Team needs according to PFF
I think head coach is our biggest need.
Someone who is adaptive and can make changes on-the-fly instead of trying to prove that his long-held traditions and philosophies are fool-proof in an NFL that is growing more adaptive every year via rule changes that help QBs and WRs.
Otherwise, we're just baby-stepping our way every season...hoping to patch something that broke the previous season. You can't move forward when you're always pulling over on the side of the road and duct-taping some random part that keeps breaking down.
For all that he has done to move us up from the Capers era, he's had an incredible amount of time to identify and develop talent at QB, WR, TE, RB, and OL. We're left with shaky QB, shaky OL, aging TE, inconsistent RB performances (due to shaky OL and shaky QB), and deficiencies galore at WR.
But hey, I'll get back on topic:
1.) ILB is the biggest need.
2.) DE or DT is next biggest need.
Those two spots make our defense better, and inherently makes the offense better (sort of).
3.) WR. Duh.
4.) OL. Because we aren't spending money on a FA guy, it's impossible due to cap.
5.) QB. Continue to shake the tree and see what falls off the branches.
6.) P. Yeah, this position is important all Jaguars jokes aside. It can alter a game. No more shanks.
