like I said I dont think we are "tanking" this season. I think we are focused on 2011 more than 2010 right now.. these moves are coming from the top
We have young players that could be great or they could be bust.We will find out this year.but with all this youth I think it puts a limit on how much success we can have.
uhhh i think you have that backwarded up good sir. we know what the old vets bring to the table, and it's not enough. the sky is the limit for these young guys being given their chance to shine (granted, they COULD fall flat on their face, but from what i've seen, i doubt that). nobody expected chris johnson to break 2k yards when given the full load of carries, but he did.
another thing, why are we calling for heads for scrapping our Dline? since 06, our Dline has been THE reason our defense is not elite. we have a great wealth of talented DBs, and a sick LB corps, this is undisputed. sure, pep got us some sacks, but he was every bit as responsible for that line to get BLOWN UP on running plays. I'm glad those guys are gone, worst case scenario: we have another bad Dline like we've had.
also please stop using the term rebuilding. we are in no way, shape or form rebuilding. the lions are rebuilding, the rams are rebuilding, the bucs are rebuiliding. we are NOT rebuilding, we are tweaking, like every team does every offseason.
