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

I kinda wonder whether people who hope we get Andy Reid have really considered how Newton's skill set would fit in a West Coast offense.

My gut feeling is that they haven't.

I convinced most don't think at all.

other than having no faith in him to put together a good staff, the WCO thing is the biggest deterrent. major red flag.

that said, he did have the offense switched to a much more simple spread to accomadate vick so it shows he's at least willing to change.

Willing to change, yeah. But he's been a WCO coach for how many years now? I really like Andy Reid - but I REALLY don't want him coaching this team.

Same here.

Given the family turmoil he's had and the fact that there'll likely be a lasting demand for him, I could easily see him taking a year off.

Kinda tired of the emphasis on drafting a DT in the first. None of those guys that went in round one this year are making much impact on their respective teams and thankfully we went with who we did. I know people are high on Star, i honestly have never watched Utah play to see what he has to offer.

In regards to this thread, I agree we do need the same positions it seems but I'm starting to think O-line is becoming a major need.

You have a point about DT. The best thing you can do when it comes to DT, is sign one through free agency. However, I do think a guy like Lotulelei would be a good pick up.

I think that we need a Wes Welker like WR, O-line (2), S, CB, P, TE and a better coaching staff.

I'm putting that on J-Rich (J-Halfstep when it comes to his willingness to pay for a tried-and-true championship caliber coach).

I think that we need a Wes Welker like WR...

Smitty could probably fill that type of role for the next three to five years.

Yes he can but we'd still need someone to replace him at the #1 WR spot

that's kind of what i'm thinking.

coaching philly for all these years and dealing with all the drama that has come with his team over the years as well as the drama that comes from that fanbase, but esp. because of the family issues i just don't see him getting back into coaching for a year.

i know that's hard for some to comprehend, but taking a year off is very likely (and probably very needed) here.
