This season we are entering g year-3 of the 3-year rebuilding process of the roster.
Year 1 was about taking cap hits and clear out aging players from the Pre-Garrett HC era.
Year 2 - last offseason - was about upgrading the D. We did that. We finally had better starters in the secondary and deeper depth all around. And it showed up, even though Ryan didn't get the most out of them in terms of generating pressure and turnovers because his scheme was too passive.
Year 3 - this offseason - will be about adding depth to the offense, like at WR, and rebuilding the OL.
Trent Dilfer made that quote just as Year 1 was underway. Since then, the talent from 1 to 53 has been upgraded, but not yet fully on offense, which is why Romo still is asked to do too much.
[View Full Quote]But if you pay close attention, you'll see that the 3 year plan is on schedule, dand based on the successfully upgrades in years 1 and 2, I'm hopeful that the upgrades to the offense in year 3 will go well and this team will make some real noise - even Romo, like never before!
...........what about the Dline? Granted, there was NO way they could foresee Brent's issue: NOT their fault but Lissemore, Hatcher, Ratliff,Spears and Coleman don't inspire a heckuva lot of confidence with me. It could be seen as a bigger problem than the oline if you think about it. I guess at minimum you draft one and sign one for both lines- that's a good start, but they'll have to hit on both which isn't easy of course.
Man, I didn't realize what a good run stuffer Coleman was until he got hurt. Tore his triceps right? Long in the tooth so I'd doubt they bring him back.........
