Instead of filling holes this offseason (positions such as OLT and OLB), CC has decided to "fix" what he considers problems in existing positions filled by aging veterans. The plan: 1) Replace the overpaid old guys that are not performing up to snuff - or at least as many as possible (Walker/McKinney should be nervous) to take the cap hits now. CC - "Boy, I thought they were better than that when I signed then" 2) Ignore the commonly perceived "need" positions because Peek/Wand/Hollis/DDavis/WRs/TEs/etc. will develop (CC hopes - but at least by waiting he will not have conflicts at the positions) . CC - "Trust me, they are better than they look" 3) Get another high draft pick in 2006 - because we will probably not be going to the playoffs. CC - "I don't know what you are talkign about, we will win THIS year" 4) Let the Peek/Wand/Hollis/DDavis type players either perform in 2005 or replace them in 2006. CC - in 2006 "See, I told you X would develop, just ignore those other 2 players" 5) Either have the cap room in 2006 to dump the guys we don't dump this year (hello Walker) or have the cap room to sign a few studs - - EJames (who will be available again next year for less just like Alexander) comes to mind for next year if DDavis has a repeat performance of the dropsies. OR, WHAT IF CASSERLY BELIEVES SEATTLE WILL DUMP ALEXANDER THIS YEAR (like we have Sharper and Glenn) - AND WE CAN JUST SIGN HIM (they seem desperate to lose him for some reason). CC - "It is a process, and boy don't you like having X" 6) Buy more insurance on DCarr. CC - "We knew he could survive, its just too bad about his shoulder . . . " End result - we are looking at least 2 years away at any SB hopes, but maybe these moves give us more top end potential.
