membengal Posted November 3, 2008 Report Share Posted November 3, 2008 Since 2008 had a bullet put in its head after week 2, everything since then has been about getting ready for 2009 (and especially since Carson's injury). With that in mind, what I like about 2009 at this point:1. 2009 will have Pat Sims starting from the outset. That guy is an absolute beast in the middle, and gives us a legit DT presence when paired with Peko. In fact, it is not at all surprising that Odom and Geathers have looked frisky the last few weeks, that has coincided with Sims' playing time. That play where Sims ran down Garrard on the sideline was damn impressive, and he mauled the middle of the Jags line (at least two holding calls on the guy trying to stop him). More, please.2. Leon Hall is making a leap to shutdown corner. I don't know if JJ will ever get there, but Hall is fulfilling his first round promise. He's tight in coverage, and is starting to show a good nose for the ball and breaking up passes. I like.3. Whitworth. Thank God somebody showed some red ass. There's a leader on the line. Good.4. Cedric Benson. Sign him to a decent contract, and don't draft a RB. Draft line help. Then draft some more line help.5. Fitz. At least in 2009 there will be no doubt that we have a decent back-up who can move the team. Get Carson healthy, draft lineman until you can draft no more, and hope for better days in 2009.
