    What I find interesting about this is we are one of only two teams whose most pressing need is just special teams. (The other is Philly, with their biggest need being a kicker.) This is a testament to how solid our team is now. From top to bottom, we have good players at every position. Not to say we can't upgrade a few positions, but I have no qualms about going into 2009 with this group of players. First time in a long time we've went into the season without a glaring hole in the line up.

    Since Hentrich has signed on for another year, I am not convinced that it is a major need, right now.

    he's getting old and it's good to have competition or a future punter
    but it's good that that's our biggest need

    Sure, bring in some competition. But unless that guy is the second coming of Reggie Roby or something, I'm sure he will be cut and Craig will get to finish out on his own terms.

    I'd say that we haven't adequately prepared ourselves for the departure or injury of Harper yet...

    hate to go off-topic but since it was mentioned, who is Harper's backup now that Carr and Poole are gone?? I haven't a clue

    This is post draft.

    Harper's back up is an area of concern for me, too. I'm hoping that either the coaches/scouts saw something in Mouton that makes them think he can become a starter, or McCourty pulls a "Finnegan" on us. Another experienced corner would be nice though.

    I gotta think that we're on the phone with Philly right now. What would Sheldon Brown cost us, a 4th rounder or something?
