What sucks is that it is nearly impossible to accurately assess the talent level on this team due to Cassel's horrendous play and Quinn's futility.
This is almost going to be like drafting our entire team again from our active roster. You have to look at the guys' physical abilities, then project their past success/failure into the NFL. Because what we were last year was NOT NFL CALIBER.
Maybe Baldwin absolutely sucks. Maybe he got tired of being wide open 20 yards down field and watching the Midget get overthrown. Maybe a real QB will get him the ball AS HE IS GETTING OPEN and not seven minutes later when the defensive backs have all closed on him, taken a nap, had a cup of coffee, and planted a flag in his ass Far and Away style.
Maybe our offensive line will play with a little more grit when they have a real QB of real value behind them. This year felt like watching 5 Green Berets standing guard to make sure no one crushes a half eaten box of old Milk Duds. Eventually... you just stop caring.
I'd like to see our run game when the front seven isn't the front eleven and defenses aren't stuffing the box fuller than a 45 year old porn star going for one last payday.
I'd like to see our defensive line when the time of possession isn't 59:59 to 00:01.
However, Peyton Hilis can just **** right off, as can Tyson Jackson. Hillis never tried because he has no internal fortitude. Jackson tried hard, God bless him, but he just sucks.
The rest have to be reevaluated. Except Belcher, I guess.
