So now that three games are down, what do you guys think are some of the tweaks we need to see in order for our team to succeed? Yes, we know we are playing vanilla offense/defense but certain things stand out, IMO.
1) Secondary still is a concern.
We see a dramatic drop off after our first unit step off from the field. The way the Raiders marched up against out secondary was telling. I am not going to say that it's nothing since this is only preseason, it's something that has been a problem for us for a while now... I hope I'm wrong in my assessment, but I am scared to see what happens if major injuries happen to our starters..
2) I am not sold on Carr.
Given, the guy is a backup but he did not show me much more than N. Davis. We were able to move the ball on the ground but nothing that stood out on the air...
3) ?????? (and more?)
Our LB core is solid and I really think we are going to keep LaBoy and Briggs, they bring new weapons to our solid line. The solid play of the both of them will make it hard to release one or the other and with M. Lawson (methink) playing his last year with us, will be someone we will count on for the future...
Jean Francois has played superb and will be another good addition to our line.
The PR/KR seems like a problem of the past if Adams and Williams can produce.
