As long as no one gets hurt, i really want to see our weaknesses exposed against the Ravens. Reason being is that it should light a fire under Gettleman's ass to sign someone. If the exposure happens and nothing is done, expect a lame duck season thanks to Rivera's contract running out. Yah it's the preseason, but the line needed help going into the season and it's worse now than where it began. It's still up to first cuts, but Seattle traded the same guard twice (Moffit) as Cleveland failed and now he's going to Denver. I'd like to know why we weren't all over this?

Bell and Williams vs. Suggs and Ngata. I'd call that even.

Needs to be a GLAAAAAAAAAAAARING weakness that causes such a massive flare up that a decision needs to be made. This line cannot go into the season looking like this.

Bell and Williams vs. Suggs and Ngata. I'd call that even.

if they aren't exposed does that mean they aren't weaknesses?

Moffitt failed his physical in Cleveland and Denver is taking a chance that his knee will get healthy. But still, I'd like to see us go after someone. Probably wait till after cuts but that's just an assumption.

This is a silly train of thought.  If you don't think Gettleman knows this teams weaknesses intimately than you don't have a lot of faith in the man.  If you think he doesn't have a team of people scouting other teams for possibilities to upgrade those weaknesses, again, I think you are wrong.

 

If you should be hoping for anything, it is that the players on our team show they can handle the starting role against good competition.  That way, we don't have our hand forced into paying way to much for a stop-gap veteran or being forced to trade away draft picks to secure the spot.

Well, he likely is the guy that watched David Carr in Carolina and thought....now that is the guy we need to be a play away from destroying our team.

I say that half joking. We don't know DG as well as we pretend.

Weaknesses: o-line, passing game (preseason), establishing an early running game, and coverage.

Same guy that let's you post this hate and personal attacks. If we look good, great. My problem is we've seen this before going into a season (especially at DT in the past) where we go in so short handed and nothing is done to bring someone in to help out. Dwan was the exception on that, but how long did we have that problem at DT? Took a season and a half to be like "hey maybe we should get someone." I just think if no attempt is made to bring in some depth or a potential starter, DG might be throwing away this season to bring in his guy next year.

Did you seriously just insinuate that Gettleman would tank this season just to bring in his own head coach?

LOL. Just go ahead and lock this dumpster fire.
