A truely great coaching staff is hard to find! If we win the super bowl this year, we will all be saying how wonderful our coaching staff is.
I agree, because as Gregg Williams has taught us, it's the system that makes a great defense and not the players... oh wait

Seriously though, I don't think having four people with "Head Coach" in their job title on the same team works. At least not in the first year or two. I do think all of the coaches listed know what they're doing and have proven that their systems work in the NFL, but throwing them all into the same cluster F of an organization and telling them to play nice and fix it doesn't seem to be working.

Re: 5 Most Important Players

1. Carlos Rogers(needs to step up)
2. Vernon Fox
3. Dockerys backup
4. Phillip Daniels(pass rush please!)
5. Renaldo Wynn(pass rush please!)



Lets face it teams are only as strong as their weakest links. If these positions arent adressed we might have another early pick next year.

I was really surprised by how many people include Campbell on their list. And while a steady QB is important, he's now a first year starter...much easier to replace than many veterans.
Well for one thing Gibbs practically staked his reputation this time around on Campbell with all those draft picks he gave up. Secondly, he's the starting QB!! If you had to make this top 5 list for every team in the league, the starting QB would be on close to all of them. We aren't the 2000 Ravens. Aside from the Danny, the lack of consistent QB play has plagued this team more than anything since Gibbs left. Campbell is no Heath Shuler. He has the tools to be a big time NFL QB. I think that JC will be the 2nd best QB in the division behind McNabb this year, which would warrant him as a top 5 player for us.

Re: 5 Most Important Players

I understand the concept, and don't necessarily disagree to him being listed.

However, Gibbs has taken 3 QBs, mediocre or otherwise, to the Super Bowl. And he staked his reputation on a certain Mark Brunell...

It's just hard for me to place faith on a kid who has 7 starts, when there are other holes. If this were a top 10 list, JC would be on mine...

Re: 5 Most Important Players

the original question posed was if we could only sign 5 players b/c of FA (this eliminates coaches and draft picks): <in no particular order>

- Clint Portis
- Sean Taylor
- Jason Campbell
- Chris Samuels
- Jon Jansen

WR's & TE's are expendable cuz there are many ways to get production our of mediocre receivers; two offensive linemen IMO b/c they can help both the passing and running game; QB & RB both needed for a balanced offense; the secondary is the hardest place to find franchise level players on the defense and since none of our CB's are stellar u gotta go with Taylor...plus he is a freakin beast!

Re: 5 Most Important Players

The reason for my list and Campbell was if I want to sign people, I want to sign the young guys that will be the future of our team.

Re: 5 Most Important Players

Without the guys in the trenches, nothing gets done. The most important players are:

1) Chris Samuels
2) Randy Thomas
3) Jon Jansen
4) Clinton Portis
5) Sean Taylor

While I understand the apprehension, just give it one more year. We were not so negative when we made the playoffs in 05. Last year was just an ugly set back. Hard to compete when your entire secondary suffered injuries.
