The single scariest thing going into this season is the lack of "proven depth" on this team. I'm all for a youth movement but they need to be smart about it.
There is good depth on the D-line (although it is full of average players IMO), should be decent depth at RB, QB and LB, but that's about where it ends.
I have heard play by play of every practice in camp so far and a few things stick out:
Sam Young is very inconsistent, gets blown by one play and holds his own another. I don't know if he is ready to be a swing tackle who sees any significant playing time. Arkin is a nice player but wont be ready to start until next year, when I believe he'll start at RG.
After those two who? Costa, Nagy, Parnell, have to sign someone with a little experience. Costa maybe can play a little. Oh, and did I mention we are counting on Holland to start.
In the secondary, I think Scandrick will hold up, and from what I am reading Church is having a great camp and the coaches feel confident about him. I think he is our starting SS next year.
After that o-my! Ball, Thomas, and a bunch of projects. Wow really scary!!! Injuries are a part of the game, and any team can be derailed by the injury bug. Some however are more prepared than others. I don't know what is left out there free agent wise, and I don't think we really have many pieces to trade, maybe Igor or Choice, but I hope Jerry does something.
A few injuries and were 6-10 all over again. Suggestions??
