The offensive line was completely incapable of peforming up to it's pay grade in this new WCO.

Jason Campbell was up and down and seeing as how the QB is so important in pro football I wish we had a better idea if the guy is going to be a top flight QB. I really have no idea.

The special teams had a big time regression.

The defense was mostly very good to great except in the fourth quarter where they were just average at best or even mediocre.
Good points and I agree whole heartedly. I think we got overly excited over our fast and successful start. We were bound to hit some growing pains and we did.
We have got to shore up our Offensive line or otherwise we are going nowhere.

I like JC. I'd say give him another year with better knowlege of the offense he would probably do alot better,but if he shows the same issues in regards to reading defenses then let move on next year.

I really think our OL is set. Not. Yes they need to get younger but we can't afford to dump everyone and whole sale go after rookies or new people cause now most of the OL knows atleast most of the blocking. To go after all new people would result in another 8-8 due to learning curve and rookies would have to get up to game speed as well as learn the plays and blocking. One or two new guys will do well and get some back ups.

DL need somone who can push the pocket. It would be nice to have two of those but one might have to do. Atleast get some big guy to just command double teams even if he has no clue other then to run straight forward causing double teams allowing the DE's to get to the QB.

I liked our LB's other then MW only cause he is gettng older and more injury prone. If he was a situational player coming in only on third downs maybe keep him if he can stay healthy but he's taking a roster spot from someone who could possibly play all season with out injury and maybe even every down.

CB kinda worries me. Springs is getting older and probably should be moved to safety so he does not have to constantly run with the big dogs. Let one of the younger guys do that and let him work for the interceptions or big hits.

We need to have an open kicking camp. Come one come all. Who ever shows they can get it done gets the job. ...calling all college kickers, calling all college kickers. report to Ashburn please.

Zorn has said in his interview that they're bringing in competition for the kicker and punter positions during training camp.

Re: Final Thoughts 2008

We started off well and then faded as the NFL adjusted to Zorn and our starters got worn down.

We need a strong draft for the trenches and a wise selection of modest FA. Some old favorites will have to be replaced. We need more youth in key spots.

We need real competitions between players next preseason, including QB and EVERY OTHER position. If Zorn lets Smith call the plays and just works as the HC we can do as well or better next year.

Yes 53, but the fat lady doesn't sing until dirtbag comes around. We need all our brothers on board. After that Eagles loss last night, I know he's somewhere smiling
