I agree. There are quite a few teams that couldn't do this. They'd implode. It would only take a couple of guys saying things like "If the real coach were here, he wouldn't do it like that", loud enough in the locker room for things to sprial out of control quickly.

My primary concern's the secondary. (Injuries that is.)

Secondary.
Ridiculously uninformed posters.

Injuries have to be the biggest concern, considering you can't win without players. Good players, anyway. After that, it's a tie between the D-line and the Secondary for me. I think the line is vastly improved, but I won't know till I see them play for more than 5 seconds. And while our Secondary is talented, they didn't live up to expectations last year.

I'm hoping that if we have a good pass rush, we'll see the secondary return to making big plays as they wouldn't have to cover for so long.

I've said this before and I still believe it... I don't think there will be any problems with locker room dissension. Sean isn't there this year, but it's not like he got fired. Players and coaches know he's coming back, so if they want to keep their jobs they will just do their jobs... Like that enormous picture of him says.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.

Not having our coach and losing our interim coach for 6 games, it messes with continuity.

As others have said our secondary.

Then offensive line

Then these repacement officials.

1. Will Smith..... He really looks slow right now, if not for the situation and having to stick with the dudes who brought you to the dance it might be time to cut bait.

2. Scott Shanle.... Any time this dude is on the field its a liability and a concern... Come on Junior Gallette, Chamberlain, anybody take his job!!!!! PLEASSSSSSE!!!!!

Thats because we were forged in the fires of Mt. Doom... And Sproles carries the precious.
