    Posting this because I'm bored...

    If we beefed up our secondary and D line I believe our defense would be close to something special.

    I would love to see us draft some lineman this year so lets see what happens.

    I want the G from bama or the S with our first pick. After that just add depth on our lines offense and defense. Draft is deep this year with talent.

    Thoughts?

    Yeah sure, if we filled all of our holes we'd "be close". Same as every other team in the league. :)

    But that's the good thing about the NFL. With the right moves, a bad team can turn around in a hurry. The question is whether our FO is capable of making the right moves.

    G, DT, DE, S and CB(probably QB too) needs. WE'RE SO CLOSE!

    No doubt. We lack the intangibles at this point. I think we definitely have the personnel to get it done, just not the right personalities. The addition of some playoff vets who have been there done that will help immensely in my mind. Williams was the perfect hire for Tennessee. I'm certain he'll end up being the full time DC soon enough.

    I feel this same way every single year minus 2005, but yet, we're still waiting.

    Coming up with a plan is easy, making it happen isn't.

    But now that our coaching staff is in the hot seat, maybe things work out.

    Honestly, all we need is a dominating defensive tackle and we are set on defense. Meaning it will cover our secondary flaws. Then a capable offensive line would give out player makers time to make plays. We really aren't as far off as everyone thinks their is no perfect team with a perfect roster.

    We are... young.

    So that word "potential" has a better chance of being realized than some other teams.

    With free agency and the draft we could fill most of the need spots BUT...

    It all comes down to Locker. If he is just a mediocre NFL starting QB, that won't be good enough. The team won't be good enough to have a winning season without a QB that is at least in the top10 of the NFL. And that would be a big leap.

    I find it funny that fans, and Jake Locker all say "we're close", but yet for some reason, Chris Johnson says we're "far away like the moon", but he'll run for 2500-yards he says...

    How's that make any sense?
