Absolutely we have to keep some guys around. And there is some good talent worthy of keeping for a new coaching regime to utilize. My position is that we don't really have an identifiable core of players of the same caliber as the truly competitive teams. eg- nate Washington is serviceable during a transition but nothing to build around. Same for the other WR's except maybe Britt, maybe KW (not sold he has the physique for a franchise player). TE- Stevens is our only solid player, not franchise type, cook gone, thompson a project at best. QB- Locker- deserves 2 more years under a new coach/OC. OL- Roos decent but aging. Stewart OK- the rest are poo-poo. RB- CJ worth keeping but not at his price and definitely NOT a franchise player. DL- a mess. I don't know what we have because I don't trust Tracy Rocker as a coach. Get Washburn back in here as a consultant the rest of this year and let me hear what he has to say. He a DL developing expert IMO. LB's- McCarthy is worth keeping but he is brittle. 2 years running with injuries and he came on board with an injury history. Safeties?- I just lost my lunch. CB's- there goes my dinner. You get my point........ Let every one of these young play and play a lot to determine who we keep and who we cut. Build the OL FIRST and get a bruiser RB. We can see what Jake can do under a new system but really we can't judge him until year 2. On defense- I don't even have an idea of where to begin with a plan except to get Washburn in here to evaluate our young DLmen. We won't be a playoff contender for 3 years but at least we can get a start on how to build up a team the right way. Who knows, we might even hit on a young talented coach like the SF and BAL did. Oh- and go to Hobby Lobby and pick up a 5" cork cone to shove in Bud's mouth if he starts giving directions to his expensive new staff.
