    All jokes aside, we need to start worrying about getting this kid some legit weapons, which is something Young did not always have. Unless a wideout this year explodes (which is possible), I would like to see our 1st pick next year spent on that or a tightend.

    Yea we need defence, but we need insurance for out investment first.

    I don't want to get ahead of ourselves here but Cook and Britt are entering year three. They'll have a new playbook to learn but there will hopefully be enough the same that they can focus on catching the football instead of the routes they are supposed to run.

    Add in Stevens who looks like he could break out along with Mariani and you have some weapons to go with CJ who I think will be his biggest weapon if the new offense can get the ball in space.

    I agree...I think we have the support weapons right now. My biggest concern is still the OL, which we really did not do much about in the draft. Maybe having Matthews on staff improves this....I certainly hope so. I just do not want to see CJ getting pummeled in the backfield multiple times per game again this year....as well as Locker if/when he takes the reigns.

    Our offensive line has given up the fewest QB hits (contrast to sacks which are a team fault) in the NFL two years running, and our two OTs are still a young pair. I don't think our O-line will be any excuse for a QB's lack of success.

    I know Kerry played quite a bit, but how much of that can be put on Vince's ability to get out of the pocket? Or better yet, is this percentage wise? Lord knows we run the ball enough. Also, its easy to not get hit when all we run are short routes.......

    Not trying to start an arguement, but those are some pretty good reasons those numbers are so low.

    QB hit/sack numbers were about the same no matter which QB was in there, actually (including Rusty). And it's been that way for several years. It's Roos and Stewart: they're just that good.

    Which is why, BTW, I think we're still a desirable landing spot for a veteran QB. Problem is now we'll have a kid breathing down his neck, which drives away the blue-chippers.
