Changes needed during/after bye week

1-Fix OL problems. Some changes are needed from the C all the way to the right of the line.
2-Time for Galloway to retire and promote Austin from the PS.
3-Cut back on penalties during returns by special teams.
4-Have McNabb work on his footwork.
5-If Torain is hurt for awhile bring in James Davis from the PS and see what he can do.

1 - won't be fixed until we further upgrade personnel after the season.
2 - Agreed.
3 - We were lucky that Doughty wasn't flagged for a 2nd blocking in the back on Banks' TD.
4 - Tough for a dog to change his spots this deep in his career.
5 - Keiland played pretty well today, and deserves the next shot, but what about Portis? He may be ready by Philly.

Re: Changes needed during/after bye week

1. Who are we going to bring in? Our depth is bad, and bringing in anybody won't fix anything at this point. We're just going to have to stick it out for the rest of the season.

2. Can't argue with that. Galloway has provided far more negatives than positives.

3. I'm getting tired of that too. Special teams needs to be more disciplined, and Danny Smith needs to start emphasizing that more. Banks is very talented and he'd be making more of a consistent impact if guys didn't get called for holding and blocks in the back.

4. Maybe you're right on this one but I doubt we can change things drastically in the next two weeks. One things for sure, McNabb isn't trusting his o-line, which is throwing his timing off, and Rabach is getting consistently pushed back which isn't allowing McNabb to step up into his throws.

5. Running back depth should be better in two weeks. We should have Portis and Torain, and Williams will probably stay too so we should be fine, unless they want to replace Williams with James Davis. I don't see Chad Simpson remaining much longer once Portis is healthy.

Re: Changes needed during/after bye week

I wonder if Dockery can be moved to RG or if has any C experience? I hate to see him wasted on the bench.

Re: Changes needed during/after bye week

Everything starts up front. As long as we have a average O Line , we will be a average team . 8 - 8.

Re: Changes needed during/after bye week

Not much is going to change on the line, just be thankful that teams with a front 4 like we saw today is not the norm.

Kyle Shanahan and McNabb should lock themselves in a room and work on getting on the same page.

Hmmm!! Giants are in the horizon twice, Titans, Eagles, Cowboys, Vikings. It's gonna be an interesting second half. Adjustments are needed, maybe Dockery can be added into the mix again as say a RG?

Re: Changes needed during/after bye week

I'm not sure what Dockery would fix. If he's not the answer at LG how is he going to be the answer playing out of position?

Perhaps if Rabach were to utilize some leeches, Voodoo and three stun guns..............

1. I second that Soup. How can you change a messed up line, when you have no real depth there to speak of?

2. Austin should have been activated after DT was released.

4. Yep, the guy is a Pro Bowler with 11 seasons under his belt. You aren't going to change his mechanics or style within 2 weeks.

5. KW is a good, bruising type of back. I think he could handle the load if Torain can't go, but with two weeks off, I think Ryan will be fine(hopefully).

Re: Changes needed during/after bye week

They need to try and get as much out of McNabb as they can for the rest of the season. If he doesnt improve, then we need to look to the draft after the season provided Rex or some other QB doesnt turn the team around in the second half of the year.

I'm not convinced that Shanahan thinks McNabb is his long-term answer at QB.

When I think long term qb's, I'm thinking qb's that can be your consistently good qb for 10+ seasons. McNabb had 3-5 years left in him max, so he wasn't a long term answer anyways. I'm not ready to make a judgement on him after 8 games, so maybe the next 8 will give us some better insight. If he can improve and give us 1-2 more seasons I'd be fine with that, but I think we need to bring in a quarterback next season to be groomed for 1-2 years.

Is it too much to ask for to have a young, elite quarterback? In an unrelated note, I do feel like this offense needs to be adjusted more to McNabb's skill set. Good coordinators adjust to the players they have. I think we need to see the offense get the ball out quicker for one, because we all know our line can't block enough to consistently have 5 and 7 step drops.

Re: Changes needed during/after bye week

We can improve the O-line by cutting Stephon Heyer

Re: Changes needed during/after bye week

Alot of changes cant come until the offseason, until then we need to continue to try to win ugly and hope McNabb and his recievers can continue to build and grow in Shanny's scheme. We just dont have enough talent on offense to blow anybody out or play consistently for that matter.

I think its painfully obvious that the Oline is still more broke than fixed, even with scheme change. We need some serious new talent in the interior. We also need to find out if Jamal Brown is ever going to recover and be healthy enough to be the answer to RT. We need to add speed at the RB spot and we desperately need to add talent at the WR. Armstrong is a good find, but is he a starter or a solid 3 or 4? Im starting to think its the latter.

This coming offseason I could see a ton a new additions on offense.
