2) Offensive Line
3) Quality Depth At Linebacker

TE - With the loss of Keller this unit is filer with rookies, Underachievers, and guy playing out of position.

G/OL depth - The RG position is going to be an issue all season and there is almost no one trust worthy to start if someone get hurt.

LB Depth - The Starters all seems solid of better, the issue is if someone goes down as no one is a capable starter.

pretty much the same as everyone elses

#1 - TE is undoubty the weakest position on the roster with the keller injury. We have some young players to fill in, but im not sure they will have any impact.

#2 - OL. Besides pouncy I'm not sure how much i trust this unit. They certainly arent the worst in the league, but I'd really like to see most of them replaced in the next few years.

#3 - CB. We brought in a nice vet in Grimes and have a couple rookies who look promising, but Im not too confident in Carrol or Patterson. I think the success of this unit is totally dependent on our upgraded pass rush. If our pass rush is consistent all year long i think it will make our secondary look alot better than it really is.

RB is a wild card too, but its gonna be hard to tell how bad they are if our OL stinks it up

QB as top weakness....I can understand question as Tannehill is unproven, but weakness?

his stat line from pre-season which is maybe two series over a full game of work...

34-56 (60.7%), 399 yards, 3 TD's, 0 INT's. His QB rating is 100.2.

until we have a top 10 QB on this team it will be a weakness based entirely on the value of the position. We won't be in the playoffs every year until we have a top 10 NFL QB and until Tanny proves he is that, which may be possible, we have to consider it a weakness of the team, because this team isn't going anywhere with a mediocre QB for the long term. If Tanny turns into a top 15 QB this year, then I wait him out and maybe draft a QB in the middle rounds. If he doesn't even break top 15, then I'm taking a first round QB if a good one is there and letting him compete with Tanny next year.

I see his stat line, but although he has improved each week, I'm not seeing a top 15 QB YET. Let's see how the season progresses.

OG

TE

CB

I'm still undecided on Tannehill but I see QB as being a borderline top 3 need until he can demonstrate the desired traits from week to week.

Without reading others' input, my top 3 concerns this season:

1. RG (again..)
2. Starting TE (we have good depth)
3. OL depth (especially at OT)

Omar got that from me! I've been telling him that since back when we had Henne. He is funny though, cause he totally agrees with me about how important a QB is, yet he talks all the time about taking your eyes off the ball.

I will say this. If Peyton Manning had gone to Miami instead of Denver, then this team would be talked about as super bowl contenders every year.

Where I agree that QB is still a weakness I don't think its top 3. Now if tannehill showed no sign of improvement the I would agree.

Top3 IMO

RB: we have no complete back and with Miller not blowing us out of the water to win the job it becomes a ?

OL: mainly depth. I think we have guys that will get us through but if they go down who's next?

TE: We have no one who can dominate or put a threat in the middle of the field

OL: LT and RG are the two that stand out to me. Everyone has been all hot and bothered about Martin, and I think he has improved from what I've seen, but he had exactly one game against NFL starters in preseason when we played Tampa and he had his worst performance by far. RG has become even more pressing of a problem than LT, but hopefully a healthy Jerry can make a difference there. In all, this unit will go a long way in determining the success or failure of our team.

RB: I don't care what anyone says, Reggie Bush should have been retained. I like Miller a lot, but Thomas and the rest of the bunch are garbage and in todays game you need more than 1 RB, unless you have AP.

TE: Clearly a problem for us with the loss of Keller.
