Good article on resigning our guys

46 posts in this topic

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"

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.

I sincerely hope Dante Rosario does come back. With a new system in place, he can be a go to kind of guy.

I hope but Rosario get your hopes up every year. A ton of potential but a constant let down. My concern with Rosario is he still runs wrong routes and drops passes on big downs after being on the same team in the NFL for years. Some guys just can't make the play when it counts. I hope he proves me wrong.

I think Rosario will have a break out year.

I hope so because Shockey certainly isn't the long-term option. These athletic fast tight ends are starting to be the norm rather than the exception. When we drafted Rosario he was special because he was on of the athletic types with speed and there weren't many around. Now every team has one.

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.

exactly, making this no different than any speculation from a huddler and information we already know.

which, btw, not knockin the OP.. didn't pay attention to who posted it the 1st time around..

I actually have this sentiment towards one Gary Barnidge.

IMO, we really arent "broken", on the roster except for DT, where the guys are decent, but should be back-ups. We need a solid starter there, and play the remaining guys on rotation. We also need an upgrade over Marshall.

I dont think we are broken, we just have some holes naturally left open due to JR not offering any contracts last year. We just have some holes that need to be filled, and in the case of DT and CB, hopefully we will fill the holes with upgrades rather than depth.

I remember Rosario breaking the Chargers' hearts one time as time expired...

I think that's about as clutch as one can get.

I'm just ready to see a REAL FUGGIN OFFENSE this year....

It's gonna be so SICK!!! Bring it NFC South division foes.... They ain't ready for Cameron and Co...
