If we had a better pass rush last year, especially from the d-line, some of those issues in the secondary would have been covered up. The Green Bay game always comes to my mind, we couldn't get any rush up the gut and they went to a quick hitting passing game and Rodgers picked us apart all day long.

Safety is still a major concern.

We had a lot of holes to fill in FA and Allen has filled many of them. Of course, what's left to do is with safety. We likely won't acquire a quality starts-this-year safety outside of a draft or FA miracle, so it appears that we are stuck with another year of average-at-best safety play. But we can acquire roughly average safeties as late as training camp. So there is reason to be sad about safety but no reason to panic.

One of my main complaints about Shanahan is he always loved his roster in its current state so much that he wouldn't even consider this option. Gruden is much more likely to keep an eye on the wavier wire for players who can help.

If that is true, then we will need to keep some cap space to sign released players. I still see holes at RT, Safety, and yes Kicker.

That is one of the spots where there is no hole.

This is why you need Mentos. To justify your questionable problem solving skills.

I would say that is one of the reasons kick off coverage last year was so poor, Forbath struggled mightily to get the ball to the 10 - 5 yard line. Hauschka would be a tremendous upgrade.
