I agree with that assessment. I'd at least like to see us get our LT and TE in next year's draft. We at least of some potential #2 WR's on the roster, and at the very least a variety of #3 quality guys.

Defensively I have questions about Peek, Greenwood, and Buchanon, especially Peek. ROLB is a key position in the 3-4. If Peek can't get it done, who else can step in any time soon?

So you are suggesting we bypass drafting an offensive lineman again next year?

I'll even add that when our scrubs are in there we never seem to beat their scrubs. What does that mean? No depth. If we have and injury we will miss a beat. Every positions is a pretty big drop off if someone gets hurt.

No, not at all. Go ahead and draft that stud lineman. If he pans out, then that position will be set for the next 10 years or so. But just don't count on him making a difference next year.

That is fair. This "5-year plan" seems to be less and less likely. It might even turn into a 10-year plan with a new coach, GM, and QB by the time it is all said and done.

Tony Boselli was part of the 5 year plan, but that didn't pan out. When they drafted Wand in the 3rd round, there was a chance Boselli would be back the next season, but it didn't happen. You can't really blame Casserly on this one. He picked the right guy, but the injury just never healed. We're all hoping the LTs available next year will end up being good choices, because there really haven't been any guys worth taking with out first round picks through the previous drafts. We could have had any OL last year, but chose not to and that should mean something like they weren't all that great and it would have been a stretch to take them where we had been on the draft board.

The minute we knew that Boselli was a no-go, we should have been working the phones. We waited way too long on this one!

That probably would have been a good idea.
