Default Re: Post Game Thoughts

The consensus seems to be that the team played well, but the o-line and secondary are the weak links the team. My questions are:

(1) Is there anything left in the piggy bank to pick up veteran guys who are getting waived?
(2) If so, are we going to be able to find any bodies that can fill these needs? If I am veteran free saftey that is looking for a home this year and I get cut on Tuesday, I'm having my agent call Rick Smith all day and night.

I think we are all looking for high level of talent at every position on the field. The reality is, very few teams can boast above-average talent at every position on the field. Everyone has weaknesses, but as fans think that the weak spots on their team are worse than anyone elses. At the end of the day, if the guys we have on the line and secondary are SO bad, we ought to be able to upgrade with cuts.

If we can't, then maybe this is just the natural make-up of most teams in the NFL with one or two real weak spots. I don't love the play of our o-line, but I doubt that there are many Cowbay fans this morning thinking that we have a real weakness at that position.

I want more, but can live with what we have - with the hope that we see improvement in these areas as the season continues. How quickly things change - if you would have told me in January that my only concerns with this team prior to the start of the 2007 season would be at the O-line and secondary, I would have been pretty darn happy that we were down to just 2...and have been interested to hear what turned Carr around.

Just think about where this team has come from in freaking 8 months...and with having the eat about $30M in dead cap money. We are going to be comptetive this year, but most of all, we have reason to be proud about the foundation we are building.
