Thanks for video Em. Although DJ is showing a lots of promise at OTA and mini camp, I too have a concern at safety position as we are not sure when healthy Reed will be ready to play for us.

Also Keo hasn't really developed well during his brief plays at safety. I expect Eddie Pleasant to pass him on the depth chart but us to carry 5 Safeties and continue to let Keo play STs and stay as further safety insurance. Either that or we cut him for Pleasant but keep his number on hand just in case.

For EmDiggy
All in all very accurate portrayal. I think you were a little too optimistic about the ILBs. Even with Cushing back we still have questions. Cushings return from injury, if we move Brooks inside can he adjust quick enough without becoming a liability, Sharpton is injury prone, and Dobbins is Dobbins, just serviceable

Good video, Em. My only real disagreement is that our right side of the O-line is a SERIOUS question mark and is a far more pressing issue than our #2 RB spot.

Thanks Gang! From what I hear is that (albeit mini-camp) Hopkins is looking pretty good.

I'm in agreement with Em on the #2 RB spot. And my issue is mainly with Tate. When Tate has been healthy he has played well. But in three seasons, he's been game-ready healthy only about half that time. I think one of these youngsters can push for his spot if he pulls up lame at anytime during the season. Maybe it's just me but I think Kubiak's patience with him is at a very low level. I'm not predicting anything but if Smithiak got offered a 3rd or 4th for him I would not be surprised if they pulled the trigger.

Oh and I think two of your keys are correct; I'd list them this way
1. Schaub must take his game to a higher level. Not Brady/Brees/Rodgers elite but at least to the Eli/Rothelisberger level. They don't always put up eye-popping, fantasy level stats but they tend to make the big plays when the bright lights are on.

2. You're on point about maintaining the high level the defense played at last year (with a couple of notable exceptions). Like Schaub, they can't have lapses like they did against Rodgers and Brady last year. Oh and some quality sacks from someone not named J.J. or Ninja would be sweet too.

3. And I agree with 281, solid play from the O-line, particularly the right side is a must.

all in all though, good job.

I'm curious to see what you had to say about the Colts' upcoming season. Please post a link to that video if you don't mind.

Keo has always been slow and mad in coverage, one reason why i couldnt understand the choice to keep Keo over Troy Nolan who while playing safety looked more than competent to handle the position.
