Now that the boys have been in camp for a little while and our first preseason game is around the corner:
Before seeing them line up against another team (I plan on asking the same question after the preseason as well), what do you see as our weakest link?
For me it's:
- O line
- Everything on special teams except Reed
- The O line has dissapointed me in recent years and I don't care how good (or not good) Faneca is/was, one Pro Bowler does complete a line. Starks has his moments, but him making the kind of money he does is just ridiculous. And we need another excellent center to add to the list (Webster, Dawson, Hartings). Ben needs more protection and our backs need holes.
- If Reed has another year like last year, kicking will be the only place that's solid. Coverage, returning, and ball handling has been abysmal in recent years and now that Sepulveda is injured, we're possibly in deep.
- I'm very happy with our safeties, but the other half of the defensive backfield is lackluster at best. They have their moments, but I don't see this group as capable of game-changing moments. It seems we haven't done enough in the past two drafts/free agency periods to pick up or groom a shutdown corner.
