Under the new coaching regime I would like to see Dave Ragone get a chance to prove what he has, assuming he is re-signed. I'd like to see him get some significant pre-season time with the first unit, although I don't know how we can work this because I think Carr will need lots of time with the new offense too. I'd like to see him get real game experience during the season as well, whether in blowouts (either way) or if we just want to try to spark the offense by changing something. I know that the NFL Europe is frequently treated as a joke around here, but I think the competition there is better than in college. I think the typical NFLE team is stronger and deeper across the roster than any college team and therefore provides a legitimate opportunity to evaluate players. I will admit that I actually watched the NFLE games when they were on TV, and I saw these three characteristics in Rags: 1) He stayed in the pocket as long as possible 2) He moved around in the pocket, giving himself more time and his lineman more room to operate 3) He looked down field at multiple receivers while doing the previous two and made good passes to the open man I saw these same three things out of Rags in his limited pre-season playing time. In other words, I think Rags has good pocket presence. Coincidentally, these are also three items for which David Carr is frequently criticized. I think that if Carr falters or is hurt for an extended period of time, Ragone should be given the chance to show his capabilities in real games. I think it would be our duty as fans to stick with Ragone through his first couple of games, which may be rough as he adjusts and gets in sync to NFL game speed and opposition. A solid running game would certainly smooth this transition should it occur. If he gets this sort of chance next year, I think we may all be pleasantly surprised.
