I really have no faith that Gettleman will do much of anything with our o-line and special teams, I mean he's had all off-season already. We only signed Wharton last year out of complete desperation bc of injuries. I'd love to be wrong, though.

Also, Crotchery (can't even tell if this is a purposeful misspelling) is a poor man's Welker? Lol wut?

So if no one is getting cut that is better then what we have..do they use a dink and dunk offense to compensate for the lack of a consistent run game or to compliment our lack of? You have to be able to move the chains on 3rd and 3 or 4 regardless how you do it.

No. Our RBs couldn't run worth a poot last year.....we still lined up and ran our Power run ball control O.

Cam isn't a dink and dunk QB. Not his game.

All the teams are going to keep their best 5 or 6 tackles and cast off the rest. The castoffs will not unseat any of the starters but we could definitely get some solid depth.

yep. the problem is that quitenoften they won't settle for what most teams would be willing or able to pay for an aged lineman and wind up either sitting out for a long time or just retiring.

the amount that we are spending on DEs this year as well as. few other over/high priced players will prevent that from happening here.
