Going into Free Agency and the Draft, does our front office know what our biggest need is ? I hope they do, but, I see a lot of wholes, and I'm not sure the a RB with our 1st pick, is our top need. I'm sort of wondering if its the last position we need to worry about ? Lets Break it down. QB - Carr - so far looks like a Jake Plummer, but some critics say he'd be better with a good O-Line.....so its possible, although nothing screams SUPER BOWL leader. RB - Davis - just missed having another 1000 yard season. Is great when he's healthy, gets dinged up though. Backup Morency - supposedly a runner with great vision, should be capable to step in for Davis when he's injured, if he can't then he was another one of the wasted picks last year. WR - AJ - has potential to be top 3 WR, needs some other guys to step up so he doesn't face triple teams. So we need a 2nd WR, some say Gaffney, some say no. Do we have a 3rd WR ? Jerome Mathis might turn out to be a Santana Moss.....mainly a kick returner then slowly bloom into a great WR ? MAYBE......probably should've been given more of a shot last year at running some routes in games. At least we've got promise. TE - Mark Bruener/Marcellus Rivers - Mark "Stone Hands/Feet" Bruener should beef up and fill one of our needs at OT or OG.....and Rivers looked decent as an all around TE, but probably can't stretch the seem on a regular basis. So a good TE would be much appreciated, especially when you consider what Kubiak's offence can do with a good TE. And lets not lean on Joppru to produce for us again this year. O-LINE - Its pathetic...Don't get me wrong we have some decent lineman, they've just gotta figure out how many they have then get rid of the deadbeats...ALA Steve Mckinney and fill the holes. Its safe to say the team isn't going anywhere until this whole unit improves. at least 2 good lineman away from an OK offensive line. Now D-fence D-LINE - Was Travis Johnson really a 1st round talent ? Hopefully we find out this year. Can Babin holdup as DE in the NFL, we all hope so. Do we even have the personnel to go back to a 4-3 base defence ? There seem to be a lot of IFs here. But, it still doesn't look as bad on paper as our O-line does. LBs - Is Wong done ? Are we going to have to put Greenwood in the middle ? is Peek our 3rd down DE or a strong side backer now ? Good thing Shantee Orr got a chance to show his stuff last year. Probably need at least one LB. DBs - The young safeties look legit. They might not be standouts yet, but, are serviceable and way better than Matt Stevens ever was. Dunta Robinson is gold, no doubt. P-Buch is bronze at best, hopefully this coaching staff can light a fire under him every game or we're toast. Faggins is a decent nickelback. A replacement for P-Buch would be nice, but not sure they have the picks or Free Agent JAM to fill that need. Not sure if anyone in the front office wants to admit that they wasted a lot of last years picks on P-Bust. So here's my final list in order of need. 1st - O-lineman 2nd - D-lineman 3rd - TE 4th - O-lineman 5th - LB 6th - WR - unless they finally start working with Mathis on receiving instead of just Kick Returning 7th - DB 8th - QB Filling those top 6 needs with GOOD players is essential if they want to finally see what they have in David Carr. The only problem with this, I fear, is that Carr finally gets some help, but, might not be able to much of anything with it. So, bypassing 3 great QBs in this years draft might end up being the bigger mistake in the long run. Just my thoughts, what do you think? And here's to Casserly not getting any say in whose drafted or brought in through free agency this year.
