Yeah, Danno, and we wonder why we're the road underdog. Philly won their last 4 at home averaging 34 points while giving up 17.

Why replace Jenkins? He and Vaccaro compliment each other, unlike Harper with either player. Plus RR's scheme depends on defensive flexibility and both Vaccaro and Jenkins are versatile enough to slide inside and cover the slot. The only thing I would do is find a true 3-4 DE to allow Junior to focus on pass rushing and another CB. The pressure defense means you need CB's who can play on an island.

Need another S and CB (likely via free agency)

Draft OL & DL

WR to replace Meachem - Jordan Matthews or Odell Beckham Jr.
No need to draft a Wr IMO We still got Morgan sitting resting those acl's. And plus Stills is better at the speed Wr than Meachem anyway. We solidify the line and our corners I'd be scared. Imagine if we could've played the season with Butler and the only person I see us replacing soon is Colston if Toon doesn't work out.

Horrible tackling on their one highlight of the night.... Btw what a difference the loss of vaccaro makes.... Underwood went right through the secondary....

Re: Final season stats for defense

If drew restructures and jimmy doesn't try and over do it maybe we can keep Moore I'm sure he'd restructure anyway. Nothing like being in a familiar team that is good.

Someone is gone after this season...

WR
Colston
Meachem
Moore
Stills
Toon
Morgan


Ive a feeling Moore will be traded and replaced by Stills, Toon will be gone, and Meachem will be gone.

There is also a good possibility that Morgan will be gone also as he will be a free agent. Morgan has been with us 3 years has not had a completely healthy season yet.. In a nut shell we paid 1.3M for 10 catches.

The reds go and we pick up new Receivers.

Thats quite a turnaround. I think Meachem stays at vet minimum until someone takes his spot. Replacing 4 of your 6 receivers in one season is tough.
