    With the talent he has been given be prepared for more disappointment.

    Teams know we are going to run because we don't have a great passer or great WR's. Not sure what options he has although I really thought the multi TE formations would be the way to go.

    I was very optimistic about the tight ends too. I know that we don't have Tony Gonzalez like Atlanta did with Musgrave, but Shiancoe and Rudolph should be more than capable of making it work. I'm really concerned about Rudolph's ability to get open. That was a problem in the preseason, and it didn't change in Week 1.

    Sorry Rick! Keep up the good work.

    I am much more concerned with Shank than Rudolph. The kid will get better and figure some things out in time, but Shank has struggled getting open ever since last season and it has become a hinderance to this offense that is quite noticeable at times.

    Yeah I'm really starting to doubt that we re-sign him after this season. We will probably let him walk. He's just not worth the money. I really hope we re-sign EJ though.

    Sorry Rick! Keep up the good work.

    Rice and Shank are fine as long as they have a HOF QB playing the best ball of his life tossing them the football.

    Well, I really hope our fortunes improve come Sunday and the home opener, otherwise we all could be in for one long ugly season with the only hope of a high draft pick. And to be honest with you I would rather have a good season than one good day at the draft.

    It is becoming more evident just how much Brett elevated the play of the whole offense when he was healthy and motivated in 2009 and how big of a drop off it was both when he was injured and also to the level of play we have gotten from all of those who have followed which is so sad to say.

    Other than McKiney being replaced, isn't it the same O-line we had in 2009?

    Favre was healthy enough coming into 2010. The difference was we were without the services of Rice & he wasn't enthused about playing for Childress.

    Can't say I agree with this. I love Hutch, but his production has dropped dramatically since then. He solidified the entire line. Now he is an average guard. I hate to say that. He is a hall of famer. But he has been getting much worse every year.

    Sorry Rick! Keep up the good work.
