    Dave Ragone QB coach -
    FINALLY this inept coaching staff is doing something right.

    It drove me insane that Chris Palmer wanted to turn Jake Locker into Eli Manning & Chris Johnson into Barry Sanders. I mean sure Eli has had success, but that's mostly cause he's lucky.

    Jake Locker needs to be Jake Locker and no one else, he's got the tools, so use them! same with Chris Johnson. Him getting back to his man blocking will go a long ways for the QB.

    I'm not 100% sold on Loggains as the offensive coordinator, but I've always liked Ragone from the day we brought him in, dude knows his stuff, he'll help Locker more than Loggains ever could.

    The trick will be Loggains play calling. IMO we're dumping all the spread stuff Palmer installed and going back to a more defined system like we had in 2008, Palmer had too much happening for a young QB to succeed. A lot of why Peyton Manning is so good is because he operates a very easy system, he only has 20 or so plays to worry about any one week.

    Munchak has already said he's dumbing down the WR's options so no one is confused. I think that'll help, and now hearing Ragone say they're going to fit a system to the players, I'm happy about that. That's how is suppose to be all along, but whatever.

    2013 might not be a lost season after all.

    I'll believe this staff can put guys in position when they show it. It's all they've talked about for the last two seasons and it hasn't happened yet.

    Better do it in colors and drug & street lingo so Kenny is not confused.

    I can hear Locker at the line now.... "Blue Crips, Dime bag, shank shank!"

    I agree. Ragone had experience as a qb, hopefully this will give better hands on insight to locker. This offense needs to be developed around his strengths. Palmer was forcing locker into a system that didn't ideally suit him for the least.

    Depends who we sign/draft.
