This is what kills me about our fans. The offense has been pretty much unproductive for the last 2 or 3 years but we still want to keep everything continuous.

I think that when the ,ever mentioned, "continuity" statement was stated the FO was speaking of the player personnel and to NOT get into a lot of free agent and trade scenarios but we put it in our minds that EVERYTHING, whether it would be good or bad for the program, would remain in place.

This would be crazy to do.

Re: February 16-- Cerrato sheds light on off-season direction for Skins

What I like about this article is VC's interest in acquiring another FB to help with blocking. I think that'd be a wise move. Big Mike is a playmaker, but he doesn't always clear the way for Clinton Portis or keep Jason Campbell off his back. Also, Cooley was used a lot in pass protection (ineffectively) last year with all the injuries to the OL. Having a quality blocking FB could've kept Cooley running routes where he's most productive.

Hopefully, Vinny's been studying game film of WV's Owen Schmitt. He's going to be a stud FB in the league for years. He'll be a huge steal in the 4th round and a key piece to the return of our dominant running game.

The article says we have a full compliment of draft picks this year; that is incorrect, right? I thought we were missing our third.

Missing our 4th. In the actual interview VC says we have picks in 6 of 7 rounds

The interview also seems to show that Viinny and DS are going to start relying more on the draft and only adding FA's that make almost too much sense (a la London Fletcher and Fred Smoot). On top of that the Skins are still willing to spend so I'm all for it. Especially considering we have a core group that expects to win.

He talked about going after guys the coaches already have a history with, which sounds a lot like "We're going after Lance Briggs and DJ Hackett"

HACKET? Don't talk about HACKET? You kidding me? Hacket?

Oh well, the guy seems to have good size and knows "Zorn's" offense but I'd like to see a Recieving core with ARE, Moss, Cooley, Caldwell, Chad Johnson or Devin Thomas or Jordy Nelson, and yes even Anthony Mix.

But did Briggs play when Blache was in Cha town?

For one or two years, yes

That word "CONTINUITY" seems to somehow creap into so many topics of discussion. It only bacame prominantely used when GW wasn't promoted to the HC position. Just because that didn't happen does not mean the concept of "continuity" was not embraced. We hired a grand total of five new coaches, with the majority of the infrastructure remaining the same.

It shouldn't surprise anyone that when Gibbs resigned, at least three coaches were going to be replaced, QB's, OC, and HC. Looking at what they have done, I would say "Continuity" has been maintained to the best it could have been under the circumstances.

That would end up being a very impressive offseason haul.

Not sure where we are going to get the money though. If we aren't going to cut Springs, and we aren't going to cut Daniels, and we aren't going to cut Kendall, then we aren't going to be able to be players in free agency.

I mean, Lloyd is already on his way out, probably a post June-1 designation (I don't see how else they are planning on doing this). I'm sure Portis and Samuels are both going to restructure, and Brunell isn't coming back under his current deal, so that leaves something like 4 million dollars under the cap to work with. Yeah we could probably fit both of them in that tight space with backloaded deals, but then you have no spare room, and inevitable cuts coming to fit the rooks under.

At least doing it that way, we have time for the draft to determine who stays and who goes, but it really gives us no flexibility regarding who of our own players we can retain (T. Collins, R. Cartwright).

I just hope they are responsible with their trades. Granted that it's nice that they are not going free agency crazy, but I hope they don't go trade crazy and give this year's or any future picks away.

Anyone else suprised VC said they are more interested in DT than DE for pass rush?

Does that mean they are going for a tackle vs an end?

Yes, DT is more of a priority.. Getting 21 sacks off the edge (between Carter, Washington and Wilson) is pretty solid, but we need more pressure up the middle.. That also opens lanes for blitzing LB and safeties.. I don't know how many times we sent 7-8 people just to have them stymied at the line of scrimmage because a G could block the DT and still chip the blitzer..

I completely agree. I think Montgomery is solid, but Griff seems to be slowing down.

But so is Phillip Daniels. That seems to be a lot of faith they're putting in Chris Wilson, who I think did a great job as a situational pass rusher last year but that's really all he is.
