So let's keep it real.....


I want to preface this by saying that this is in no way a negative post.  I have every confidence that the Jackets will do well this season (I think at worst we'll go 8-4, and that's with some pretty bad luck), and I am and always will be a die-hard fan that will pull for this team no matter what.  This post is meant merely to try and see what everyone's expectations are and see where everyone's areas of concern are.  Mine follow....

D-Line - As good as the OL will be, the DL concerns me.  TJ Barnes needs to get healthy/get motivated/whatever, because he is the next Mount Cody.  With him in place, nearly all my concern about the DL goes away, but without this supermassive body (lol Georgia Tech) anchoring the middle of the line and eating up 2 guys, I think any game against an Iowa-type line is going to mean the QB has too much time to throw.  I realize in the 3-4 that the LBs are responsible for most of the blitzing, but without any O-Lineman getting taken up by our DL then its block city.

Passing Game - Even though Stephen Hill is .5-.75 Bay-Bays (that is the new base unit for measuring WR awesomeness, I've decided, and 1 Calvin = 10 B-B), I've heard reports out of Barrel Of Rum and Doug Rober that the A-Backs are dropping more passes than one would care to see.  This may be due to the confusion/general newness of having to remember more than one route, but if J-Nes and the AB's can start to hook up consistently then we're in trouble once we run into, again, an Iowa-caliber D that can blitz the pants off us.

That's pretty much it.  What say you, John Q. Burdell?
