IMO
Right Tackle (need)
Free Safety....We have a rookie starting (weakness)
D line depth (weakness)

D line depth? Really? Jenkins, Baker, Bowen, Cofield, Neild, and if Carriker ever gets healthy, that's six right there. You'll take that over middle linebacker where it looks like a UDFA will be part of our two deep?

Baker is a nose tackle trying to play end. Jenkins is suspended for 4 games. Carriker is not going to play this year. Merling has never shown much......I like our linebakers!!

Baker is playing well as an end, Jenkins is coming back, and Merling has looked decent (who picked up a fumble tonight).

If we're comparing injuries, we also don't have Keenan Robinson. Fletcher's here for a year, and then we have just Riley and Kehl. Maybe Compton comes through, or we get decent play from Barnett. We'll see.

VERY thin in the middle of the defense.

1. Inside linebacker depth- I'm extremely concerned about what Barnett can give us

2. Offensive tackle depth as Slateman and others said. If Trent goes down we're seriously screwed. Tom Compton is not ready for prime time at LT or RT. We'd be ok if he had to fill in for a little while at RT but he's not ready to be an every down starter at either position yet.

3. Free safety depth.

We are good at strong safety, we even cut Gomes who would make some NFL rosters and lost Phillip Thomas due to injury for the season but everyone is still comfortable with our players at SS.

Free Safety is another story frankly and it's really inexcusable that since Sean died in 2007 that we haven't been able to find two players to come in and solidify that position. Right now we still only have 1 player we can rely upon to play the position and he's a 6th round rookie. Of course, he looks good for a 6th round rookie but its still inexcusable how we've mostly ignored signing or drafting good players for the position for so long.

Still sucks Marshall McFadden was cut from the steelers IMO, I'm surprised they didn't sign him to the practice squad either. Confused

Possibly the redskins will. I hope

Apparently Olympic bobsledder is not one of our needs.

I was angry at myself for having to look at the clip to remember the third line of the quote:

Feel the rhythm
Feel the rhyme
Get on up
It's bobsleddin' time!

COOL RUNNINGS!
