Yep! Depth on the OL and DL, Secondary, and Wide Receiver. Depth is the key to winning!

Re: The Skins' biggest area of need?

I'll play devil's advocate. CB all the way. Our depth due to injuries at the end of this year had us playing Prioleau one on one for entire games. That sucks.

Re: The Skins' biggest area of need?

FRPLG:

You say Dockery starts for any team that does not have two Pro Bowlers starting at offensive guard. I believe that no team in the league has that luxury so do you REALLY mean to say that Dockery starts for any team in the NFL? That's not even close to right.

Dockery is better now than he was as a rookie but he's not all that much better than he was last year. And I fear that is "not good enough".

BTW, the Skins made it through 2005 with Samuels and Jansen at OT for about every snap of the ball on offense. That was a major factor in the OL's improvement over last year when Jansen was out and Samuels was playing at middling efficiency. Molinaro might have been satisfactory because he worked hard in practice and didn't cost a whole lot in terms of cap room - AND he didn't have to play a lot so that other teams could figure out if he has a huge hole in his game. He may be spectactular or he might be a stumblebum if he has to play 14 games next year. That's why this team needs OL depth - badly.

Re: The Skins' biggest area of need?

i hate to join the bandwagon you guys got running here ,but i'll be the conformist and say wide receiver. A good #2 would really help the offense, provided brunell is healthy or campbell is ready to go. our defense, as long as it stays healthy, is one of the top defenses in the league.

Re: The Skins' biggest area of need?

QB is an area we will only need to consider if Ramsey leaves. If he leaves there is no way we draft a backup. That guy will come from free agency.

RB we are pretty full. I think the team might make a decision on Ladell of Rock, and send the other man off to find more playing time. Either way, both these guys deserve a shot as a true number two back, or even a number one guy.

WR has to be the number one need. To be honest the only starting position that should really be in question is that number 2 wide out. All of our other starters seem pretty set.

TE might be an area of possible upgrade. Maybe more of a physical blocker, but all in all I think Royal will be back. He should become Bugel's bitch for this offseason to develop more of that blocking mentality.

OL will be thin if when we Raymer and with Brown hanging it up. This could be an area of drafting the best guy available when our pick is up.

DL depth is a non issue. We have 8 guys on the roster right now.

LB is only an issue if Lavar gets shipped out. Maybe keep Holdman for depth that knows the scheme. McCune could slide in to replace Lavar and maybe we bring back the rookies from Princeton and the Stanford as well as another veteran.

DB we must consider cutting Harris for cap room. Most likely he stays and provides good depth. We must consider drafting best available CB just like lineman to add young depth around our already solid group.

K/P If Hall can ever be healthy maybe he can be worth a crap. If Tupa is healthy I say we keep him. Who cares if he is old, some of the best punters and kickers kick until they are 45. Otherwise itís up to free agency, because drafting a K/P is a gamble of a draft pick we cannot afford.

Re: The Skins' biggest area of need?

We need Art Monk. (I know, Boswell said it--but he's right)--No one moved the chains like Monk. Gibbs O is crying out for a possession receiver.

Agree with the O-line depth. Hard to argue with. I hope Molinaro does pan out--that would really help. If not, we've got bupkes after the starting 5.

Re: The Skins' biggest area of need?

I agree that another WR is in much need, but I do not want to write Patten off just yet. I would love to see us get a bigger possion WR, someone in the mold of Art Monk to complement the two speedsters that we currently have now. I think that if Patten did not get hurt this season we would have seen more production out of him as the year went on and teams realized that Moss had to be double covered at all times.

Patten was put on IR after the Tampa game. If you were to look at the stats Moss did not have a 100 yard game or a multiple TD game after we beat the 49ers(10/23/05) until the second NYGiant game(12/24/05). I think that is about the time frame when teams started to notice that Moss needed more attention than just 1 on 1. If Patten was healthy during that strech who knows what would have happend. All that we do know is that during that strech when Patten was out we relied on Thrash, until his injury, and Jacobs and we now know what they did for us, Zero!!!

If we could get a possion reciever and have Moss and Patten healthy, I would like to see us run WR screens to both Moss and Patten. Have one on the left and one on the right that way D's would not know which one was going to get the screen, also this would open up the middle for Cooley and who ever our possible new WR maybe.

DL is a huge issue, we got 3 solid starters now, 1 overpaid guy with mediocre production (wynn) and both DEs are 31+ years old. The backups outside of evans are terrible. We need a pass rushing threat and young guys. at least one DT to replace noble's spot and a DE. Kampman at DE (80tackles 6.5 sacks, insane production) and draft tapp to bulk him up and move him to DT where he'll have absolute monster speed for the position (like tommy harris or griffin when he first entered the league).

Re: The Skins' biggest area of need?

Our offense really stagnated after Randy Thomas went down, but the real problem was at WR. We had a dynamic passing game when Patten was in the lineup, not because of his stats (they weren't terribly impressive), but because he opened things up for his teammates. After his injury, our passing game became very limited, although we saw a resurgence in the running game. If we get a solid #2 guy, Patten can serve as #3 and our passing attack will be dangerous again.

Re: The Skins' biggest area of need?

DL is an issue of concern too. A ferocious pass rusher would make our D even better. BTW, I was extremely impressed with our defense in the playoffs.

Re: The Skins' biggest area of need?

Here is my list of needs.

Wide Receiver - Need an athletic receiver with size and speed to complement Moss.
Defensive End - Need a pass rushing specialist.
Place Kicker - Hall is at the end of his rope. Need a strong legged young kicker.
Offensive Line - The starting five is very good. I'm concerned about depth.
Returner - Need a return specialist. Antonio Brown is too shakey.

Re: The Skins' biggest area of need?

even though no one was happy with patten's production, just the fact that he was on the field gave us an average of over 85 more pasing yards per game. That's pretty significant.
