    Re: BESIDES TJACK! What is our biggest weakness?

    I can hardly call TJ a weakness, he is just not on the same level as some of our other players but we'll see this season

    I voted o-line, depth is not big
    Rosie O'Donnell is a dude!

    Re: BESIDES TJACK! What is our biggest weakness?

    How about QB depth. There is a very good chance that tjack will miss some game time this year. Weather it is 1 4th quarter or 12 games, the backup QB is an important position and I don't trust either of the backups.

    the most worried about? i am not sure about that, but i am for sure worried about it. look and TRs resume and who he has blocked for in his career. pretty much all pro bowlers. as kevon says, he is going to the HoF. How good was the chiefs running game last year? no where near as good as it was with TR. sure you can pull the injury arguement into it and the lesser overall team for the chiefs, but how much of that influence was from TR? if you rb isnt taking the first hit in the backfield, that means your fullback is doing your job. when the RB takes the first hit, the odds of getting hurt increase.

    Re: BESIDES TJACK! What is our biggest weakness?

    Good topic. I voted for "offensive play calling".

    Here is my list of biggest weaknesses for us for 2008, outside of Tarvaris:

    1. Offensive playcalling and inability to adjust to what the defense is giving us
    2. Inability to throw short passes and passes to running backs
    3. Lack of an effective underneath passing game (slants, 10- and 15-yard routes, etc.)
    4. Defensive short and middle range pass defense (inability to press receivers at the line)
    5. The entire special teams play
    6. Lack of a pass rush ! (ALLEN will end that !
    ;D)

    We need to address these issues. The "conservative" (I am being diplomatic here) play calling on offense is a major issue. I don't think we need to go back to the Linehan days of our WR rolling out and throwing to another WR in their red zone, but one rush off tackle after another into a stacked box is no longer going to make it in the NFL.

    Re: BESIDES TJACK! What is our biggest weakness?

    Just curious, we had a running back who tore the league up last year, including vs. some of the best defensive front sevens (San Diego, Chicago, etc.).

    So why do you think our O-line is a major issue ?

    Re: BESIDES TJACK! What is our biggest weakness?

    The OL issue is all about the passing game and McKinnie's possible suspension.
    Then, we're also counting on Birk and Cook to play better there too.
    Sure, No.1 rushing team is a great accomplishment for our OL, but if they don't start pass blocking better, it might not matter who our QB is...and it won't get us a playoff win on its own.
    Then again, some of those slants and other quick outs from the QB/playcalling will help the OL look better too!
    Control the line, control the time, and give your D a chance to shine!!

    Re: BESIDES TJACK! What is our biggest weakness?

    I was going to vote 'TE' but then I noticed the word 'skillz' at part of that option. I don't think skillz are really a problem, how well do they have to be able to rhyme to have skillz anyways?
