Chipshot has posted! Wow. I didn't even think about that. Maybe there's a middle ground? Either way, I do believe Gene IS in the hot seat. He's one of the only guys left from the old regime.
Bradfield could push Britton for a spot. Maybe not right off the bat, but if Britton doesn't improve upon his healthy return and if Bradfield keeps turning heads it could happen. I'm also interested to see who wins the back-up center spot. If not he definitely sticks around as a swing tackle. I'm also interested to see who wins the back-up center spot. Estes or Brewster? I'm really pulling for Brewster. I think he has a higher ceiling coming from a program like Ohio State.
There's a reason I didn't include Issac in the conversation...I simply don't think we've seen enough from him to justify him sticking.
Megajag, you are absolutely right. I'm wondering about that group as well. I have high hopes though and have often been accused of being way too "glass is half full." I'm thinking that Mincey improves, Branch adds an element of speed to our pass rush that has been lacking, Lane stays healthy and becomes a solid rotational player, Morgan flops, Chick surprises everyone, and Davis begins developing on a pro level on the PS. Selvie and Adams get cut.
It doesn't bode well for Jones that we also signed Tahi from the Vikes. I'd like to see Jones stick around as much as the next guy, but we've seen situations like this too many times and we know how it plays out. In a nutshell; wouldn't be surprised if he stayed, wouldn't be surprised if he goes.

I LOVE our linebackers, but you're right certain players have to do a better job in coverage. Well put!

@Chipshot You're absolutely correct. As much as I love attending games it's a full time job getting to and from the stadium. Plus the parking for the non season ticket holders is located in very shady areas. So it's either park in those areas and possibly get mugged or face a 20 minute walk. The downtown area needs a lot of work, but it's a small price to pay to see my team.
OR we could be entering the season with the Kevin Kolb/John Skelton predicament. Who's it gonna be? At least we know 100% right now for a fact that Gabbert is the guy in 2012...at least that's how it's been pitched. I'm simply saying there are teams out there who don't exactly know who will be behind center for them...Moore/Garrard/Tannehill in Miami...Flynn/Jackson/Russell in Seattle...I'd rather go into camp and get THE guy ready to play other than splitting snaps with other QB's.

Hey if either one of these guys turned out even half the production as Fitz, I'd be thrilled. But I'm just not referring to Fitz's numbers. He's had bad quarterback after bad quarterback, and has STILL produced and guess what? Gabbert's got 10 times the potential as Skelton and those other guys mentioned.

Well since you brought up the point a few nights back that you don't think Mathis is equipped to cover slot what we COULD do is if Ross beats out Mathis for the starting job, have Ross cover slot and Mathis cover the #2 receiver whenever the opposite team goes 3 wide. Mathis would be fresher and possibly more effective that way. Thoughts?

@Bobbyp84 No! Don't be sorry. There's a ton to be excited about this year. It's going to be a completely different team. Here at B&T, we love it when people respond so feel free to, in the words of led zeppelin, ramble on!

@Bobbyp84 I can understand why you are on the fence regarding Mr. Cox, but I think he's gonna bounce back this year in a big way. Maybe I'm too optimistic? We'll see.

@Bobbyp84 Don't forget about Derek Cox my friend!
@LukeNSims 75 degrees?! Lucky!
Gold medal trumps all. Go America.
Agreed. Very well written. I can't believe your friend made that comparison.

@Bobbyp84 Ya know what, Bobby? I think you're right about MJD. Not too long ago, Sims did a post on our record with Mojo as our starting tailback. Either way, I think the team's mediocrity and late season collapses over the last few years have had more to do with a one dimensional offense and I wonder what MJD could do in a more balanced attack. I know he'd be brilliant, but I think we can win just as many games with Jennings as well. Btw, I was just thinking about how our offense has been one dimensional BEFORE Gabbert became quarterback. For some reason that has really gotten lost in translation somewhere along the way. It's not like all of this is Blaine's fault, but it's constantly painted that way. Sorry for getting off topic. Anyways, we shall see if Jones-Drew decides to hold out.
