Dammit I should have specified roster weakness

You should have known better as Shula bashing is the #1 past time of most here.

By the way..what happened to the font formatting?  Using Chrome.

DE, Uncertainty at LT, SS, LB depth, RB health and depth, proven FB

In that order.

Biggest weakness imo is lack of urinals in the mens rest room at BOA.  They could totally pop another wall in there and double the amount of urinals.

OT we know is a weakness. But who knows what we have in Kalil and still need to see a little more from Williams starting to make a judgement on him. Drafting someone in this draft isnt going to fix that.

 

DE I dont see as a Huge weakness as far as this upcoming season. But going forward yes. We were one of the tops in the league in sacks. Only thing different about that group is subtract Ealy and gain Pep. Ealy played with less heart than Pep ever did in his career here. Pep now a vet, matured, and hungry for a ring will be an upgrade to Ealy.

We could draft a guy like Tanoh by trading up in the 3rd. Would be a good prospect to groom for 18 when Pep And possibly CJ could be gone.

 

Safety we gained a vet whose made the last 2 probowls. Big upgrade over Boston who is out of position a majority of the time. Could find a young guy to groom, but not a glaring need

 

 

Biggest "need" or weakness

 

1. Power RB- Stewart is one of the most injured prone guys in this game, and he's up in age. When the run game stalls so does our offense. Heck the superbowl, when Stewart got nicked up our offense took a decline. I have zero faith in CAP. If the only time he is even getting activated is when Stewart was out, something isnt right. Had a decent game vs Tampa but what RB doesnt.

Upgrades via draft: Fournette round1, Perine Round 3

 

2. WR- KB looked good his rookie year, had a major knee injury year 2. Last year was awful, not sure if a delayed sophomore slump or what. Funchess has shown flashes, but again hasnt shown anything to have you comfortable with this group. The 2 guys we brought in shouldnt have you saying this group isnt a weak point either. While I like the potential of the guys. They have been in the league for a little and one hasnt been much more than a ST guy and the other only started 17 games in a terrible WR (was a focal point for them last years draft getting Treadwell)

Upgrades: Chris Godwin, Zay Jones Round 2. Cooper Kupp, Taywan Taylor, Noah Brown Rounds 3-4

 

3. #2 TE. Dickson cant block to save his life. Need that well rounded TE who can catch passes but willing blocker.

Upgrades: OJ Howard Round 1, Jordan Legget pick 64, Kittle Round 4-5

FG Kicker.  I have zero faith in Gano in close games.

1. WR - KB is the only WR we have on the roster who has had a 1000 yard season in the NFL. Funchess' best season? 473 yards. Shepard's? 341. Johnson's? 475. On paper, this would be the weakest WR corps of Cam's career.

2. OT - Gotta assume Oher is done and until Kalil proves he can stay healthy and return to form he's a big question mark as well. Is Williams really the long-term answer at RT?

3. DE - We're rolling with a bunch of stopgaps and we have no young developmental talent.

4. SS - Adams will hopefully be a good stopgap, but see above.

5. RB - Stew struggles to stay healthy and he's knocking on the door of 30.

6. TE - We like to run two TE sets but our #2 TE is awful and Olsen is 32.

Our biggest weakness right now is Time.

So many of our stud players are probably on their last or next to last seasons, the clock is ticking on this team to gel before some of these folks head off to the next phases in their lives.

Jonathan Stewart is at an age when the game is no longer kind to running backs, particularly bruisers like him. His mileage is low, but it's a punishing position, especially how he plays.

Ryan Kalil, yeah, his brother is a youngish face on our team, but Ryan is getting up there and the injuries have got to be taking their toll. Luckily he's always been a player whose success was based on technique and brains, so he may be able to go a while longer.

Greg Olsen is getting up there in years, too. His drive and capabilities are still the best in the league, and I think HoF worthy someday but there's going to be a day when he's going to hang up the cleats and spend the time enjoying his family.

Michael Oher may already be done. If he plays this next season, will he be medically and ethically be allowed another?

Thomas Davis. Man, this one hurts, doesn't it. He hasn't dropped off yet and that drive is so strong in him. If Luke is the brains of the defense, Davis is the heart. He'll answer the bell for as long as his legs carry him, but realistically, the retirement is closing in.

And Luke, speaking of Luke, you and I both know that next concussion will probably be it for one of the greatest MLBs to play the game. He's young, but another concussion may be a big quality of life deciding factor.

Charles Johnson has played his heart out over the years and father time is catching up. I think he's got his best year (singular) ahead of him. But that's probably it.

Julius Peppers... great to see him back, but if it is for more than a victory lap retirement season, then it will just prove how much of a physical specimen he is and something that just doesn't happen but once in a generation.

And last, but not least, let's talk about Cam. Cam is going to be in the prime of his playing life this season. He still has those physical talents that allow him to move and make plays like no one else before him, and he has gained so much experience. Cam is one of the greats, but because of how he plays and how others are allowed to play against him, the team almost has to look at him as someone whose career might be limited by eventual accident or injury.

Time, I say, is our biggest weakness. There needs to be a sense of urgency on this team.

There's no rookie DE that's going to come in and start over Peppers, Johnson, Addison, outside of Garrett and he won't be here. We traded our DE with the most potential which means Gettleman has a plan that's yet to unfold. Just hope it works out
