What exactly are we complaining about?

If we get this deal with Lewis done, besides a LT, do we really have a glaring need somewhere?

I can see the disappointment not being able to spend a ton of money to upgrade everywhere, but a lot of the positions are already set.

DL - Jordan, Bunkley, Hicks, Smith, Johnson
LB - Galette, Hawthorne, Lofton, Vilma, Wilson
CB - Greer, Lewis, Robinson, White, Mack, Johnson
S - Harper, Jenkins, Quddus, Bush

We could certainly use a little more depth, and we could probably use an upgrade at safety, but we're not in bad shape. Last year the scheme didn't fit... so we've made a change that looks like it fits our personnel better. We also have 5 draft picks to use to shore up some of our issues. We don't need that much help.

Free agency is going to be a little bland for us. Buck'er up... it's going to be alright.

Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

All little common sense goes a long way.

I think we are so use to being involved at this time of year that our uninvolvement plus the upgrades by the teams in our division ( BUCS) has everybody on edge..... Signing a few players even if it does not solve every problem probably takes the edge off!!!

I wouldn't say we're set. We have a slow defense. Slow corners. Slow safeties. Slow linebackers. Slow DL. But eh, we'll see.

Re: What exactly are we complaining about?

Speed wise, only Harper is really slow. Everyone else pretty much runs what is expected of them at their position. Add a couple of young bucks in the draft, and the overall team speed improves immediately.

I have to disagree with you on this. The fastest player on our defense is Patrick Robinson, and he's not a burner. Malcolm was too slow for corner, which is why he got moved. But the elite FS's are fast. Faster then him anyway. Don't get me started with the linebackers....

Jenkins ran a 4.46 - 4.51 at his Pro Day and a 4.55 at the combine.

So... I'm a little confused here.

Oh and he also posted the best three-cone time for corners at the combine.

Just people panicking cause we aren't trying to pay players as much as we can like the dolphins or bucs.

And I remember at least a couple of huge plays that Jenkins made by running an opposing player down. I don't get it either.
