I'm going to leave the coaching change alone for now. Mostly because I just see it as relatively unlikely. I still support Fisher, but like TorontoTitanFan I'd support a new direction. I think realistically it would take several bad seasons in a row for Bud to lose Jeff. As for Cecil - this is the man who turned around our secondary when he took it over, so I'm not ready to say he won't be a good DC. On paper I like his approach and attitude. Let's see how he responds. I also agree that this team isn't missing that many pieces. So I'll tackle them in order of importance as I see it: QB It's all hinging on Vince. We have a #3 pick with a ton of upside on the roster now. All the endless debate won't answer the question we all have - do we need to find another QB or is he the answer? IMO we have to hand him the keys in the coming weeks and get that answered either way. Right now we have to assume we're going to have to find a new QB, and finding a good one in the draft (or anywhere) can be like playing the lotto. If Vince can just learn to protect the ball I think it's worth sticking with him for that reason. That's a big if, though. Secondary Mouton and McCourty's problems are that they are rookies. As for the fundamentals, I generally like what I've seen so I feel ok about the future. Harper didn't deserve a lot of the criticism last year, but he does now. He's a huge liability, and perhaps is really limiting Cecil in what he can call and is causing our pro-bowl safeties to overcompensate trying to help him. The current injuries could be a blessing - getting the young guys some needed experience and a chance to prove they can replace him. I think we could use a good FA acquisition or draft pick here still, and if that happens I think Cecil won't be forced to play so soft. O line Tackles are very solid, although Roos has had a bad couple games I think. He's entitled to a few. Harris should be a solid center, but I'm very concerned about our Guards. I wonder sometimes if they are the reason we're not seeing much of Lendale - we generally get 0 push up the middle, and they often just whiff in pass situations. I know teams are just bringing the heat to Collins now, so the criticism might be unwarranted but I don't feel comfortable with the line. We at least need to find depth. Wouldn't be shocked to see an OG-heavy offseason. D line / LBs Again, I feel very good about the young guys at DE, DT and LB. The "lack of pressure" we keep hearing about has more to do with our secondary than our line. No one can collapse a pocket in 2 seconds. And they've gotten close. As for a possible change to a 3-4, I just don't think there are enough guys out there who can play NT. I don't think there are even enough LBs who could really handle the responsibilities the line in a 3-4. I'm not opposed, but conceptually I like an aggressive 4-3 better. WR/TE Again, I feel the recent drafts will begin to pay dividends soon. Britt had a 100 yard game with a QB who is really struggling. That's impressive. I can criticize Dinger for going pass-wacky... but I can also understand that he obviously feels we're very close to breaking out with some real threats.
