It wouldnt be fair for me to come here and only post negative, so I will say what Im concerned about.( I know, who cares) and things Im Excited about. Unfortunately my Concerns have been validated by just about everyone here. Just last week at this time, I was giving my roster predictions and it was not taken well. Now that you all have had time to absorb it, what do you think? Did I not say Ballard looked Done and would be cut, Same for A.Wilson(putting him on i/r was better than cutting him) You dont play the whole preseason game week 4 with a hammy injury so I hope noone believed that.
Sooo, Im still concerned with our lack of depth at the DT position which was the case ALL preaseson as I wasnt sold on the scrubs we picked up. We are good, but very thin after 2 guy. I cant remember ever only having 2 tackles on a team. (I dont care for Fortson)
I still have concerns about lack of a real Safety back there and the idea of Gregory starting frightens me. Im dissapointed in the development of Tavon Wilson and the failure of Ras I which is gonna trickle down.
I LOVE THE FRONT SEVEN! I love the versatility that BB will have with linebackers he has. I like the Collins pick. He should help this year. Donte Hightower is gonna break out this year if he trusts his eyes and they turn him loose. Jones is Legit. Mayo should be better this year and make more plays. Dont know what to expect from # 32, but we need him to play at a high level and be consistent and healthy. Thats a tall task, but I believe in him.
On offense, Whats NOT to like!?? I thnk K.T. will emerge as the # 1 WR on the team. Maybe not production wise but he is the # 1, meaning most complete guy, starting outside. Amendola may catch more balls, but I think KT has bigger impact if he continues to progress. I like Boyce, and he is better than I thought. Smaller too, but thats ok. He has legit Speed and a knack for getting open. Dobson is really gonna shine next year, but will probably make some big catches this year and maybe do 35-50 for 500 and 4 td's. I think KT is good for 50 balls and Amendola gets 80-90 barring injury. Im excited about Vareen but would have liked to keep Leon to back him up as he is still an injury concern to me. I wasnt happy about Mesko going. I think it was minor money and he was a great teamate and holder. lets hope it works out. I like Buchanan, looking like a young ,taller Andre Carter. He could help this year if given the chance.(maybe take some of ninks snaps on later downs)
All in All, I see this team doing the usual. BB and Brady leading this team to another playoff run. We know # 12 will get us to the dance, and I dont mind watching the ups and downs of playing with a young team. Just want to enjoy another exciting season and not talk about postseason till it gets here. Lets see how the team comes together. I have mixed feeling about the roster and our lack of a real SS and some DT depth, but I will trust BB to get it right.
