I listed 55 people (excluding the second person following any or )... this is our roster pre free agency.. what do you think are the weakest positions that need the most help. To me its pretty obvious. Our First Need is a #2 CB.. we've had this problem for the last two years. We haven't drafted a CB in an early round in the last 2,3 drafts. Second, we have good DT depth, but how much can our rookies contribute. Do we need a vet there. Lastly, at WR, we need either a #2 or #3 Reciever that is a star, or we need to find our replacement for Smith. This will either happen in free agency or the draft next year.,
Notice how I haven't even mentioned the QB position. Clearly that will be the position that decides how succesful our team is. If Newton falters, we need to be ready to play without him. Does this mean we stay with a Moore or Clausen, or bring in a vet QB, with experiecne. (If we let Moore go, we will only have 14 or so games of QB experience on the roster)- worst probably of any year. Reminds me of when we had King, Barnidge, and Rosario with no experience one year.
Hit me with some comments or suggestions.
