Good question, but perhaps they are with what they are doing in FA. Let's start with the TE position. Most of us having been complaining that our TE play was non-exsistent and I suspect we could say they agreed. We now have a new TE who is far better than what we had with the hopes that BJ might come along. That would be a real plus. To me the most interesting area is the WR coor. Last year at the start of the season I was not high on Gaffny and was worried whether he would make it back from injuries. I also listened to some of his interviews and my thoughts were he was not the brightest light bulb on the block. Many of us liked people like Armstrong and others, but almost all of us thought Bradford was a waste. Well guess what folks, the new staff is telling us it was even worse than we thought. If you realize we did not fight for Gaffny and the WR core is essentially a new team except for AJ. We have gone out, it looks like, and gotten a number 1 receiver if AJ can't begin to prove himself. AJ needs to begin to run his routes and catch the ball, because it looks like we have found an older one who can. AJ has a lot of upside, but he's simply not developed as much as he should. I lay much of the blame for that on the previous staff and not AJ. He's a very salvageable #1 player and I believe the new staff believes that's the case. How about the FB position? Well they have gotten someone who they think fits there scheme better than what we presently have. The gentleman is good on special teams and is a good receiver. This is a toss up and looks like a new player more because he fits the scheme rather than what we had at that position was bad. How about DD? Right now it looks like they think well of him, but we will probably draft Bush because he's an unusual talent. Both will see a lot of time as both are excellent receivers. Bush of course would be the break away threat when compared to DD. Our pick ups here have nothing to do with the quality of DD's play when he is healthy. The O-line is even more interesting. Many of us were saying McKinney stinks as a center. They have agreed with us and picked up a probowl caliber center and said McKinney was moving to guard. They released Brown because they said he didn't fit the scheme. The jury is out on Wade at the present time, but it looks more like he will depart the scene because he doesn't fit the scheme. Wiegert does seem to fit in so far, but that as long as he remains healthy. The real surprise in this is Weary who most thought wasn't worth the time of day. Apparently they see something in him and must believe the previous staff didn't know what they had or what to do with it. Wand is the one where we know the least, but many of us felt he was a victum of Pendry. If McClain's logic is correct the whole O-line staff over the last several years has been an abomination and that is being polite about it. I always felt Mr. B didn't hang around and help more because of the staff and what they were doing. That is simply a gut feel statement. So I would say the staff is seeing many of the weaknesses board members saw, but really like a lot of what we have. The draft perhaps might give us a different indication, but it looks more likely we will pick up players for the future with respect to the O-line. Now about the QB position. I think they are telling us that Carr was a victum of his coaching and WR coor. Much more than any of us thought. If you think back about Carr hitting Bradford in the back with a pass that might sum it up real well. In fact that might have been intentional. I think our receivers have not been running their routes well, selling their routes, or perhaps even worse, not running the routes they were suppose to. In addition when the QB is in trouble the WR's are suppose to break back to the QB to help him. You don't wait for the ball you go back to give the QB a target. Remember, Gaffny saying how the crowd told him what was happening, but I think you will find he didn't break back to the QB. I have a feeling that is what the staff is in part telling us. It will be interesting to see how Carr looks and works with the new receiver coor as I don't think he has any excuses at this point in the game. This receiver coor should be able to adapt to a new QB if necessary. If Wand plays it looks like the receiver could be a TE, WR, FB, HB and even the RT. In other words there are going to be a lot of targets on the field on any given play. All of which it appears are very good at catching the ball. Not much to be said so far about the Kicking and return games, but they could be improved by the draft. We did pick up a place kicker, however. May be they are worried about the injuries we have had in the kicking game. Defense is interesting in that we have picked up a left DE. Everyone knew we couldn't stop the run and so we picked up someone who we thought could. Again the staff agreed with the board. Many wanted to see Peek and Babin get a better shot at rushing the passer and it looks like that will happen. Based on the fact that we haven't done much in this area it would appear we are content with what we have, but the draft might indicate otherwise. We have had a number of young players step up at times and I think the new staff feels we have better players than we think they were just being used in a horrible system. Walker was jetesoned and Payne is still here. PBUC and Greenwood are still here. We have picked up some veterns on defense who should add some stability. Probably getting rid of Glenn was very bad, but there is nothing we could do about that because that occurred a year ago. Funny, but a lot of what has happened is exactly what many board members wanted. Strange the number of complaints out there when you are getting what you want. As I have said so many times this year. Sit back and relax and enjoy the ride. I think its going to be a special one.
