Pretty spot-on article. Everything is going to be based on our running game, especially the ability to run the ball in the 4th quarter.

Outside of that, we also need run-stopping by our LBs. Which will be a problem the first four games, which is why I think Sharpton makes the most sense because of what I saw in him Preseason Game 1 against the run. He has a nose for sniffing out the running game.

I think our CBs and two Safeties are good enough in coverage to permit us to use or LBs in more of a run-stopping & QB-blitzing capacity.

Running game in the 4th quarter & Linebackers will be the big-ticket items that I think make us better or have us madder than a hornet.

I suppose Red Zone scoring would be a third item we need to do better at.

If Kris Brown and Neil Rackers continue to be virtually even in the kicker competition, it makes sense for the team to go with Rackers. Sometimes guys just need a change of scenery. If Brown stays and fails on a crucial long field goal on opening day against the Colts, the thinking will be, “Why didn’t they make a change?” If Rackers does the same thing, I’ll think, “At least they tried someone different.”

Exactly. That's exactly what will happen the first time Kris Brown misses a big kick. A change of scene can sometimes do wonders for a person. Bye bye, Kris.

A very insightful piece. Either PK has been watching our practices or he's been stalking this msg board


My favorite part:

The offensive line is set with Duane Brown at left tackle, Chris Myers at center and Winston at right tackle. Guard jobs remain up for grabs. It seems to me that Wade Smith, a free-agent acquisition tailored to the system, and Antoine Caldwell, a third-rounder from 2009, would make the most sense.
I'd like to see that lineup tonight against the Saints' ones.

PK is alright in my book. He's doing a good job of keeping tabs on the AFC South. One of the only bright spots for ESPN, IMO.

His actual job is the four AFC South teams. It's his beat area and he's paid to know every single thing about each team. It's why he often comes to visit a couple of times a year. He's not just some random blogger. He's a journalist.

I'm betting Obsi knew that.

I think our running game is going to be better than last years's; but I also think that our passing game can carry the team, just as it did last year. So, ahead of the running game, I'm going to say that defensive line play - pressure on the QB - is going to be more important in improving our record.
