In my opinion, COACHING is the only GLARING weakness on this team.

Dang right Haz is on the hot seat.

Loomis? I\'m not so sure.

Danno, I think(?) you are suggesting coaching is the most glaring weakness on this team. And I agree with that.

But there are some other glaring weaknesses, IMO:

1. Linebackers
2. Cornerback

In my mind, they will be weaknesses until proven otherwise. I do think there\'s a REALISTIC chance we will be greatly improved in these areas. But, really can\'t say they\'ve been fixed at this point.

Haz on Loomis on the Hot Seat?

Maybe I was the only one who read this:

If true, expect Haslett to keep starting quarterback Aaron Brooks on a short leash this year. After breaking onto the scene in 2000 following a season-ending injury to then-starter Jeff Blake, Brooks won the job from Blake in 2001, held out in 2002 for a new contract . . . and sputtered ever since. Backup Todd Bouman, on the other hand, temporarily bounced Daunte Culpepper to the bench in 2002 when both quarterbacks were with Minnesota. Don\'t be surprised, then, to see a change early in the year -- especially if Haslett and Loomis recognize that it\'s gonna take a career year in order to enable their careers to continue for another.

Now, it\'s no secret that I am critical of Brooks, but even I wonder if this would really happen. Anyone think that we may actually see Bouman this season?

Just a gut feeling, WhoDat. But, yes, I do think Bouman or O\'Sullivan could see some action.

But I think AB would really have to do something (like keep fumbling the ball) for that to happen.

I don\'t know if Haslett is on the hot seat or not, and neither does anyone here, but I don\'t think it\'s a far-fetched idea!!

I may not know, but I feel pretty confident that Haslett is in a win or go home kind of situation. I\'m surprised to see that comment about Brooks. Who knows how credible it is, but it makes me raise my eyebrows slightly. I expect to see a great year from Brooks, and even with an average year Haslett\'s seemingly unbreakable allegiance to Brooks seems too strong to think a change is really possible without injury... and maybe even with injury.

I would agree that Haz has to go 10-6, win at least 1 playoff game to keep his job. If anyone replaces Brook\'s it will be JT. I can\'t remember a game that Bouman actually did anything in for us?

I\'ll believe that Haz will pull Brooks when I see it. I hope Brooks doesn\'t need a pullin\' this season. AB\'s track record would suggest that he will fix the fumbling problem this year. Every other aspect of his game was positive last year.

Bouman looked mediocre and rusty last weekend. He does have the ability to light it up, though. I remember him taking over for Cullpepper that year. Sure, he had Moss and Carter, but we have Horn and Stallworth. Bouman can get it to them if he needs to.
