    Default Can this team be saved with what we already have?

    If I was Pioli, I would make the following changes in an attempt to turn this thing around with what we already have on this roster:

    Coaches -
    HC: Jim Zorn
    OC: Maurice Carthon
    DC: Emmitt Thomas

    Offense -
    QB: Brady Quinn
    RB: Shaun Draughn
    FB: P. Hillis
    C. : R. Hudson
    LT: B. Albert
    RT: E. Winston
    LG: J. Allen
    RG: D. Stephenson
    TE: T. Moeaki
    WR: J. Baldwin
    WR: D. Bowe

    Defense (back to 4-3) -
    DT: D. Poe
    DT: J. Powe
    DE: G. Dorsey
    DE: T. Jackson
    LB: T. Hali
    LB: J. Houston
    LB: D. Johnson
    SS. E. Berry
    FS: A. Elam
    CB: B. Flowers
    CB: J. Arenas

    Obviously, bring in Charles for Draughn when he is healthy, or use a combo of both. And, of course, get McCluster in there for 3 wide receiver sets, and maybe even to return kicks.

    After 2 consecutive blowout losses - why not?

    I see no bashing, however, there is a lot of frustration going on here right now. I'm sure at your end too. Great Expectations leads to Les Miserables when those expectations are not met. Personally, I think the D (and lack of coaching) is responsible for this yet another slow start. Just an opinion though

    I think that linebacking corps would be very weak

    It wouldn't work with the current roster I agree with your post. Say hypothetically what do you think about adding the few missing pieces and scrapping this NT issue that has plagued us since we switched to the 34 though?

    I avoid that "misery" by not getting myopic and remembering that it's only game. But ya, "the sky is falling" on my end too.

    Best tradition:... I have to go with the Oakland Raiders. How can that be disputed? ...Everyone equates the colors Silver and Black with the Raiders. There’s Al Davis, who has been with the franchise for 48 years. There are all the great Hall of Fame players,...There’s the three Super Bowl titles. You think of the AFC West, and you think of the Raiders.

    And now we suck in the 3-4. And Pioli/Romeo are hell-bent on keeping it that way. Well, even New England had enough sense to go back to the 4-3 in this pass-happy league. Pioli and his New England ways are irrelevant here., and it shows on the field.

    Yep that's what we should do. Fire them all, and start new. Do it now, we only lost two games. We can still save the season! Sadly I agree about one thing in this threads first post.

    I like the change to 4-3, much like every one else in the damn league. I don't trust Zorn as my head coach, but would be happy with him as OC. I'm not quitting on Romeo after two blowouts, but having control of both jobs is too much.

    I've thought about using Hillis as a fullback and going old-school on everyone's asses, running the I predominantly and letting Peyton blow up holes for 25 to slither through. That would be fun to watch.

    I don't think Elam is an upgrade from Kendrick Lewis, but he is looking okay.

    Brady Quinn cannot be your answer for QB. Must have been a typo or something, no big deal.

    And pardon me if pointing this out makes me a dick, but listing only two WRs is kind of a cop-out, isn't it? I mean, especially in today's pass-first game, your third and fourth WR (and your second TE, for the matter) could be make or break. So who ya got? I'm giving Wylie a chance to be my Wes Welker, and he's the only one that's even questionable in my mind. Don't blame the skill-players for this wonky offense- blame Matt Cassel and the offensive line.
