This whole offseason has seen no one added yet to the roster that other teams will have to specifically game plan for.

I need a (yawn inserted here) nap!

Griffin will change that. He'll make Garcon into a legit #1 also. Every WR will be a deep threat, which will open up running lanes for our QB and RBs.

Our offense should be explosive and a lot of fun to watch. It's the D I'm worried about now, specifically the secondary. LB will take a big hit without Fletcher but we still have 'Rak and Kerrigan. Riley and Alexander are good also, but London is the leader of the group and still plays at his normal high level. Our D-Line is the best part of our D, especially with Jarvis Jenkins coming back.

I really think we're going to just have to outscore the opponent every week to win and most weeks, I think we will. We'll torch their secondaries, they'll torch ours. Luckily, we have a scary pass rush to slow things down but if they get time to throw, we're in trouble.

Right, plus the 2 corners are back, albeit they're not great, I think both are good. I liked what I saw from Gomes, look for him to improve. And they put together a lot of vet depth, someone out of that group of Barnes, Williams, Griffin, Torrence & Meriweather will need to emerge. I think we all know what we have in Doughty, solid but not great at SS.

Disagree, apart from the obvious risk of injury. London is arguably the most dedicated guy on the roster (to his health) and shows more fire in his belly year after year. I think he's set for at least two and probably three years, barring injury of course.

...looking at London's body type though and his excellent technique and injury just isn't a big worry IMO.

He was having arguably the best training camp of any D-lineman last year as a rookie before he got hurt. I fully expect him to push Carriker for a starting spot at DE this year.

At first glance at the TV this morning, I thought it said we signed Terrance Newman. I almost threw my bowl of cereal.

I forgot all about Leigh Torrence. He should be safe from Bountygate suspensions...he would have had to actually hurt someone.

At his age you just don't know. It's happened to plenty of guys before. I'm not predicting anything, just saying with a guy his age it's something to keep in mind.

I think he's lost maybe a half step in the past couple of years. Nothing that he isn't able to compensate for with his smarts, but the fact is he's an old player.

At least we'll see Torrence and Barnes compete in preseason for the nickle back position.

As for Madieu Williams is another former Terripin. I'd be more comfortable seeing him starting @ SS instead of Meriweather.

A defensive back who "struggles in coverage" is a liability. There is just no way to get around that...

looks like he will be busy chasing WRs into the endzone in a Bengals uniform.

These are swing players, there's no way they're starters.
