You forgot at least two things I believe get a better left tackle to watch Bress blindside and get a big run stopping D-lineman and we will back at the dance.

Upgrades
DE
DT
OLB (both)
RB
KR/PR

That should do it.

Lets see what Charles Brown can do, he can play either tackle and we need to upgrade both Bushrod and Stinchcomb, Not sold on Bushrod at all. He can't handle the bull rush and he has not learnt from last year it seems.

Agreed with the sign deangelo williams, the guy is a good RB and will do well in our system.

say what you want about our o line but we are in the top when it comes to least sacks allowed. i know its because of brees too but that is still a great stat.

Agree with all of the above, except DeAngelo Williams. Would be better to find the new rookie version of Williams in 2011 draft, from a smaller school with low miles. And draft two of 'em if possible. Although it would be nice to have DeAngelo, I'm worried about the expense.

Also:

- Renegotiate w/ Reggie
- Coach up Junior Gallette and we may not need to worry about adding that many defensive pieces.
- Coach up Chase Daniel and find him some decent competition in training camp.
- Re-evaluate or replace our training/medical staff
- Find a bright young assistant to learn from Sean and help w/ offense (ala Josh McDaniels w/ Patriots)
- Get a promising young RB/WR/PR/KR like KC's McCluster or NE's Woodhead to help out Roby/Reggie
- Reconsider the occasional Wildcat usage (in case we have RB's hurt again or conventional running game struggles).
- Consider the pistol (would be a nice change for running game and Drew can run it in the NFL with his quick release).
- Lobby NFL to increase active roster size, whether or not the 18-game season goes through. That way we could actually use Gallette or other key reserves in games.

Key*-re-evaluate or replace medical staff that couldn't/wouldn't make a dx on Thomas ALL season long. Could have just sent him to Urgent Care and they would have been more accurate.

Lobby NFL to increase active roster size - I like that one! This season showed how much that was needed and not just with our team.

Find some young blood that isn't injury prone, that won't cost us major bucks, but are willing to go that extra mile at all costs. Real men need only apply.

I like DeAngelo too. At first glance hearing DW and Saints in the same breath excites me too but I am not happy having that much money tied up in the RB position.

1) Re-sign Reggie for something that works to his performance/durability or let him walk.
2) Spend a mid-round pick on a project RB.
3) Grab an affordable FA RB option if we cannot return PT, Reggie and Ivory.
4) Draft OLB or DE with our 1st rounder.
5) Get a solid FA OLB and DE even with the draft pick used.
6) Draft or sign more depth to the DT position.

I am content with our o-line as is. I like the depth Strief offers, I look forward to what Charlie Brown can show us. If we start the same 5 I am good with it. I am also content with Hartley. He will rebound and be solid enough for us. I do agree with getting a good return guy. This should not cost us a bundle to do so.
