Steve Reed wrote it and is very accurate in my opinion. Nice to have an informative piece of reporting and not something from the Bleacher Report or Pro Football Weekly.

I like what he said about Rhys Lloyd. I didn't even think about the near guaranteed touchback every kickoff with him.

I like the old saying "If it isn't broken, don't fix it". But in this case, I don't really like hurneys approach of "keeping the core guys together". We just came off of a 2-14 season and in this case, I think we should "fix" what's "broken"

a good article on resigning our players would consist of actual cap numbers and how much we'll have available after the fact.

I agree, but they would have to use cap numbers from a contract that hasn't been signed yet. And I have seen 20 different versions of what the cap will look like. So I imagine it would be hard to write an article with cap space listed.

The main area that was broken last year was the QB, or the passing game if you will. They have taken steps to fix that, lets hope it works.

If we had the same exact team last year with a decent coaching staff we would have won 7-8 games. We certainly can't get worse on offense and I would imagine that another year under the belt for our rookie WRs will reap big rewards. The crazy part is if you look at our team position by position, we aren't a 2-14 team.

If we sure up DT and the corner position, we will be a .500 team this year unless we lay eggs at the QB position. I have no inside source or data to back this up, but I am not convinced our Oline was putting their necks on the line last year because it was obvious our coaching staff was updating their resumes. I think you will see our Oline opening up holes against 8 man fronts like they did prior to last year. Once we get the running game going, it all falls into place.

Having said all of this, the lock out and lack of practice time could be a big issue but I am hopefully optimistic.
