This team is actually a few pieces away from going deep, but maybe you're not looking at it the right way at all. You're viewing it like "We don't have those pieces because we sucked for a long time" vs. Maybe we don't have the exact player at every position. For example: If you think the WR position is solid but lacks a serious consistent possession guy, that's way different then saying WE SUCK BECAUSE WE HAVE NO RECEIVERS.
The reality would be we have 5 guys at that position who contributed.
So based on your wish list, a group of solid guys that could come back and play for us:
Roy Helu HB
Fred Davis TE
Keenan Robinson ILB
Tanard Jackson FS
Brandon Meriweather SS
Brian Orakpo OLB
Adam Carriker DL
Chris Neild DL
Jammal Brown RT
A couple guys on this roster I would want replaced would be:
15. Please maintain respectable size signatures within the limitations set herein.
Maintaining reasonable size signatures minimizes the amount of load time needed to access a given page. Furthermore, it reduces the amount of scrolling required of users perusing threads. Signatures should not exceed 550 pixels in width and 200 pixels in height. These dimensions are not a guideline, they are a rule. It is the standard dimension for the entire signature. Regardless of the quantity of photos posted, the sum area of all the photos must not exceed the stated size limitations. In addition, signatures should not contain any more than 10 lines of text. The sum total of the height (i.e. 200 pixels) INCLUDES text or any combination of images and text.
I want the peace of God in my life.
To say these words is nothing.
But to mean these words is everything.
Nobody can mean these words and not be healed.
Roy Helu HB -didn't play a down last season sans a preseason game. He also missed time during his rookie season. Not sure I would lock him in as our reliever for Morris. With that said Royster also did not impress me.
Fred Davis TE-Actually I am the most depressed about Sleepy, before he was suspended he had finally shown his worth as a second rounder and last season was on pace for a tremendous season this year. Unfortunately he has a huge unknown factor with his tendon as well as his UFA status. I would love to see him come back and tear it up again however I just don't find it realistic to be back to 100 percent this season.
Keenan Robinson ILB- Good depth however I wouldn't lock him in as my replacement for Fletch. He is great depth though.
Tanard Jackson FS- The earliest he can even be reinstated I believe is right before the end of preseason? Correct me if I am wrong. Still, if he can come back he is unsigned. Who's to say we try with him again. Did show great skill and would love to have had him work out.
Brandon Meriweather SS- Showed promise but it was over the course of a game?
Brian Orakpo OLB- Two seasons in a row with lost time due to the same pectoral muscle tear. I wouldn't mind him back as depth but I prefer Rob50 after this season and let Orakpo come back as just a rusher.
Adam Carriker DL- Only one on the list that I trust to be good to go this season
Chris Neild DL- Does Neild really strike fear for any of you???
Jammal Brown RT- I wont waste time with him since you already said he's worth getting rid of.
Again don't get me wrong I can see our progress but I believe people are underestimating where we are in this rebuild. We have a great base right now and are heading in the right direction but we shouldn't be calling ourselves contenders. It's the same koolaid we've drank after previous "special runs" into the playoffs.
Those "special runs" were us making the playoffs in two out of three seasons, and ended with a change of coaching and the RB we rode hard legs wearing out, so maybe we weren't quite drinking the kool-aid then. Even then we finished 8-8 the next year with one or two very stupid losses in there
by the way, I don't expect out backup nose tackle to scare me, I just expect him to occupy a couple of blockers
That run which got us there also involved games against the browns and eagles. Like I said we are good and getting better but we are not contenders. However I believe we will have to allow this to be an agree to disagree situation.
Anyways I am sorry if this has derailed the thread, please allow me to use this to return it back to its original purpose.
