We've got some real good talent and some top end players. Where we really lack is on defense (most everywhere) and also the O-line. Lastly, I'm not sure whether our backs are just average or if its they are swallowed up by the defense because our line is old, slow and stupid to boot. Colombo (love the fire) is basically a cripple. Davis has the lightness on his feet of a tractor trailer needing a tune up. Gurode is servicable, but has lost some quickness and power. Our left side is better only because it has the smartest and most agile players. However, our left Guard (Kosier) can't stay healthy and he's no spring chicken either.
Also, I don't think anything we have at running back is special. Felix isn't as good as we thought he was because he can't seem to make anyone miss in the hole. I see a lack of vision and with the additional pounds, quickness isn't there either. Barber doesn't have the power he once had and frankly, I'm not sure Choice isn't the most complete back overall, but no one wants to give him a chance. Good receivers overall (both tight ends and WO's), and I think Tony given time is a pretty good QB.
Defense is a mess. Average middle line backers who can't cover anyone. Secondary has one decent player and he's 32 years old. Rest of the secondary is average and none of them (except Jenkins on occasion) seem to know how to play the ball in the air. Both Safety's are awful in coverage. IMO We need 4 new lineman on Offense and a stud running back and a blocking tight end. On defense, two middle linebackers, another nose tackle and another DE. Two new Safety's and two new cornerbacks. That is 8 required upgrades on defense and 5 on offense.
Yikes. I need a early morning beer.
