Do we need the same positions now, as we needed then?

30 posts in this topic

Perhaps it's a little too early to ask the question, but doesn't it appear like we need to draft at least one DT, CB, FS, and, most especially, a WR? in the 2013 draft? Even though we can look at the offensive play calling (double entendre intended), isn't it easy to recognize that we need a more dynamic WR to take pressure off Smitty, if not be his replacement? Don't we need a young DT to shore-up the DL and be more consistent in the running game? Don't we need a young lock-down corner and FS to solidify a defensive backfield that has had arguably measurable and marginal success? What has really changed from last year this time except for a downgrade in offense that some will blame for dwindling talent, suspect coaching, or both? Other than the rise of the Kraken, a solid FA pick-up in Landry, the return of TD, and a slam dunk first round draft of Luke, has our ability to stop the run or pass improved significantly? What do you think?

Hurney had tendencies. The structure of the team reflects those. And yes, those tendencies favored certain positions while marginalizing others.

carolina needs true downfield threats at the wr position to take advantage of newton's arm.

as much as people love smith, he's no longer that threat and no one else on the roster fits the bill.

still need a disruptive dt, and the oline needs an overhaul.

I'll tell you where smith would be a threat now.

In the slot position with one or two other big threats at wideout. That's where he wants to be anyway.

That might change if we wind up with a WCO coach.

(my preference is to stick with Coryell; way better fit for Newton)

Our old buddy Magnus from TBR likes the West Coast. I prefer the Coryell.

But hey, anything but the read option, right?

it is a love hate scheme isn't it.

I've heard a few of ex- players/coaches on tv/radio say they believe it is the best system

for Cam's skill set. We just need a better Oline to run it.

Myself .......I prefer the Coryell system
