With what Kubiak has done for the offense in his very first year, I'm already of the opinion that his hiring is a success, though that's obviously a premature conclusion on my part. But by bringing in FA Flanahan and drafting Spencer & Winston, and giving Wand another chance to develope, he's given more reason to be optimistic about the OL that the former regime did in 4 yrs. And getting a legit #2 WR in Moulds, plus a real pass receiveing TE in Putzier and the rookie Daniels has given us more reason to be hopeful about the passing game than ever before. And with all these new offensive weapons and the kinda coaching Carr is getting from Kubiaks himself, theres hope that Carr can finally realize his full potential. But how about a more gradual conversion to the 4-3 ? Afterall we've been drafting 3-4 for 4 years now, and our 2 top picks this year are D guys who could play the 3-4 as well as the 4-3. And the maybe another year of FA and another college Draft to get all the pieces we need for a better chance of success in the 4-3 ? How 'bout a starting front seven in the 3-4 for '06 from these players: Mario & Weaver @ DEs & Seth Payne @ NT, DeMeco & Greenwood @ inside LBs, with a corp of OLBs to choose from that includes Babin, Orr, Peek, & Anderson ?
