I disagree. I think there are teams out there that have depth along the line. Actually, there are plenty of teams out there that have more depth, period.

I actually think in the era of free agency (it isn't even true free agency due to the cap) we have an advantage if anything because of Snyder's willingness to basically run right up to the cap, and to give big salary hand-outs.

If there is one team that should be able to create depth in this era it would be be the Redskins.

Landry, Blades, Palmer, and even Heyer (along with a couple undrafted rookies; Westbrook and Marcus Mason) all appear to have a future in this league.
Is this a coincidence or could all the speculation be responsible for Vinny's apparent improvement.
why do you think westbrook has a future in this league, because he recovered a fumble or has consistantly been beaten like a drum??

I really don't think our OL is that bad off.

I'm still amazed how we've lost one starter and everyone thinks the sky is falling.

I agree , the sky has not fallen . On the other side , we have been horrible the last three years in short yardage , and scoring TD's . With 1 more year in the new Offence , maybe that will change ? If the Inj's to Samuals / Portis and Campbell slow them through the season , I can't see us all of a sudden getting in the endzone . I hope the D gets back to it's 05 form ,,,, we may need them to win a few games for us .

Im curious as to why you think Cerrato is a "good Draft scouter." Please elaborate, cause I think he's shit.

The sky is definately not falling. The team has had an excellent line the past few years and it will continue to be a very good line for a few years.

But, there is some cause for anxiety, even if it eventually proves to be unfounded. Samuels is suffering from an injury that nagged him for awhile a few years back. The left guard position is shaky at best. Finally, Jansen looks less than stellar. Buges will likely get things together, but I'm keeping my eye on the unit.

I'll show you two:

New England
San Diego

They are strong and deep, particurlarly on defense where is matters most. Pats 2007 1st round draft pick isn't even going to start this year, but he will play a ton. They are 3 deep in the DL.
The Chargers have former 5th and 6th round picks starting and playing very well on the offensive line. which has been the Redskins major weakness, we do not pick well in The late rounds. At least not until this year. HB Blades looks like a keeper.

The Patriots aren't exactly stacked at RB. Maroney is nice but has durability concerns. Not having Samuel in there at CB is a significant loss for them. Behind Brady they have a former 7th round draft pick and a 95 year old in Testaverde.

San Diego has some question marks at WR with unproven guys like Vincent Jackson and a rookie in Craig Davis. I know it doesn't matter much since LT and Gates will catch a ton, but still, they certainly don't scare anyone with their wideouts. Their safeties are a big question mark too.

Nobody in the league has solid depth at every position.

It's funny how when the Redskins don't start a top draft pick it's "OMG, WTF is wrong with this team?! We're so stupid that we don't even start our draft picks!"

But when the Patriots don't it's "Wow, what geniuses. Drafting a player and letting him develop before throwing him to the wolves"

I don't get that argument either. "If we had great depth across the board." There's no such thing in the NFL these days.

I concede we should better utilize our draft picks, but you can't have a great backup at every position.

As for people saying we have an undrafted FA in Heyer who is starting....I've got two words for them: Joe Jacoby

That's the perception of success working at it's best though. If the Pats do it, it's brilliant. If the Skins bring in a Randy Moss they overpaid and Snyder is desperate.

I tell you what, you look at the Patriots roster and they easily have one of the oldest teams in the NFL right now. I think they'll be competive this year, but not dominant.

Re: Cerrato, Most Improved...

As Matty said, no team has solid depth at every position. Take the NFC, where Philly is regarded as having the best depth. Although JLC recently went on and on about our lack of depth along the O-line and how great Philly's O-line is stacked, they've got holes at numerous other positions. Philly is lacking quality starters and depth at WR, OLB, MLB, DT (Bunkley may be a bust), and safety. In the AFC, the Pats and Chargers both have issues (as Matty noted).

IMO, the Redskins depth issues will disappear if JC has the kind of season we all expect. I have always believed that if a team has a very good QB, a lot of holes magically disappear in the eyes of the press. With us, it will be no different.
