Champ, too soon to know if your buddy is safe?

He said he is. Said Keim told him "I'm taking you with me". Pretty happy right now.

Per beat Jaguars beat writer Pete Prisco:

"Two weeks ago, a personnel man I respect said the two best out there were Keim and Caldwell".

Keim's presser is taking place right now, for those interested.

I;m not sure exactly but he said just now that Keim and Bidwill want to add positions to the front office and they may put him into one of those new positions, which would be a promotion I guess. He's not too sure, he said he'd probably find out this week.

Did not answer to most important part of that post.

As simply co-mod, I can block any request for interview.

Sorry, it's a business.

Steve Keim presser notes:

"This is where I wanted to be all along"

"I truly believe this is a re-toll effort, not a rebuilding effort"

"Physicality along the offensive line has been a problem"

Daryn and Lyle have been big culprits of this. Though it does make one wonder if he really buys into the Power Blocking scheme.

I would not mind us going to a more zone based schem with Lyle, Daryn, Nate and Bobby probably all better or equally suited to the ZBS when compared with a PBS.

Here is hoping Keim has some good ideas and can it done asap.

Wonder if he will make some trades along the way, not something Graves did very often.

Only brought in Rhodes that worked via trade, sent a few others out.

Steve Keim's thought's on the running game are along the lines of what I've thought - while there's some pieces there, there just hasn't been enough to run the ball consistently.

The way I read into that, that means if we had tried to run the ball like we want to take pressure off of the passing game in recent years, we wouldn't have been able to do that consistently enough to make that a viable option. I like that he wants to address that with personnel changes.

If we're talking about Levi being in the lineup, I cannot agree with this.

I'm saying we weren't consistently good enough running the ball - even in 2011. I'm not saying we wouldn't have won the Redskins game that year if we had run Beanie more. What I'm saying is there are still plenty of times - like that season against the bengals, browns, and obviously the niners - where in a decent sample size we're not getting the YPC we need to justify running the ball 60% of the time.

Our FO saw that and tried bringing in Adam Snyder and hoping a healthier Beanie and Ryan Williams would solve that - obviously we all know how that all worked out. So if we want to run the ball most of the time we need to bring in personnel that will allow us to be consistently good running into stacked fronts - that includes having RBs that are healthy (don't have to do that high in the draft though), getting Levi back, and getting better run blocking from the interior and especially the right side of the line.
