Well he signed Copper yesterday, but you're right. I think Palko will be the backup at QB and Patten will end up re-signed. I hope that both Faine and Goodwin return because Goodwin proved his worth as a backup this season for sure.

Is Brian Young going to be back this season? I hope we get a monsterous DT to work alongside Hollis Thomas but Young would be real quality depth for the rotation. I think that Simmons is better than Simeneau....hopefully with another camp behind him he can pick up the defense at the same level Simeneau knows it. That is the only reason I can see that Simeneau started over Simmons IMO.

Looking at that also reminds me of the world of hurt we'll be in if we don't get a quality corner in Free Agency....I hope like heck that McKenzie can make a recovery and play well....but at his age....I don't know.

I think Simmons is going to be cut. 3.1 million dollars is just to much to pay a backup LB. We paid him to start and it didn't work out. Since we are actively trying to sign a starting MLB I think hes shown the door.

So with the depth chart updated, it looks like we still have a need to depth at receiver and O-Line. I know that Nesbit can play Center in a pinch, but I got to believe that the Front Office has the position targeted in the draft. (It's no secret that I really like Mike Pollack.) TE and LbBare still a need and while the roster shows plenty of CB's and DT's, I don't (I hope) that we're not done yet in that area either.

I do feel that they had addressed most holes and we're in better shape than when the season ended. A couple signings and we'll be in good shape to grab the BPA in the draft in all rounds...

We have had a good start. We are probable going to add 6 players in the draft, probably sign 12 or 13 more rookie/verteran free agents.

With those 19 or 20 more players we need to find a starting caliber CB, OLB, DT, TE, KR/PR. And backups at WR, TE, OC. Possibly find a free safety, if we can. We may actually be able to do this if we draft really smart i.e. 2006 draft. I was thinking it would take 2 years to fix this defense, the Vilma pickup was huge.

BTW. you have Robert meachem as our backup QB.

Why is Deuce not listed on your RB depth chart? Also, Stecker would not be starting over a healthy Reggie Bush or Pierre Thomas, IMO.

um...yeah...Bush ain't our 3d string rb. he obviously starts and either PT or Stecker will play in the rotation with him. I think the coaches would try and start Devery or meachem before lance Moore. Obviously ghent won't start by the first game...alll of which shows why a "if the season started today' depth chart is sort of....pointless except to enable pointless reposnses such as mine...

We're really hurting at QB :D and there is no indication that Deuce will be ready to play...

The point is to provide a view of where the holes are in the team. You're response was not completely pointless as it prompted my response explained the point of the original point.

At this point, the only thing that is obvious is that we have holes that need to be filled...

Bush is where he ended the season on the depth chart. I was in the middle of rearranging and deleting players on what I copied and pasted from then. Meachem's place was a typo in the table code.
