Next year Pettiti is one year wiser. We should see Adams back and Al Johnson has another year under his belt. Hopefully this year was an anomaly for Rivera due to the back injury and new surroundings.
Julius and Barber will also be a year wiser and hopefully able to pick the right guys up on blitzes.
If there is anything I would suggest it would be to look for a replacement or significant depth.
Tucker needs to stay with this team because he has done admirably as a "back up". Those guys are valuable.
We need to find LA's replacement and get him on the roster sooner than later.
We need to make a decision on Peterman and whether he can be a player in this league.

Sometimes you can focus so much on who you want to get that you forget how important it is to retain what you already have. We need to address depth on the line IMO.
Well said. I would love to have Bentley, Runyan and Holland (N.O.) or Metcalf (Chi.) all signed this offseason. We need a guy to compete with Rivera, a starter at C, and a guy who can either tutor Pettiti (who better than Runyan with his hardass attitude) or push Pettiti, screw relying on young players, if we are making a run at the SB tell the fans that Big Bill. Just sign some guys who want a SB too.
