    I wasn't proposing a new staff. A new DC, yes. But, I think Gailey should find a guy who will still run a 4-3 so we don't need to change out all those players to fit the new scheme.

    Lack of depth is always an issue, I agree. I want that to come from the draft and free agency as always. I'm not as worried about RT personally, Hairston has played well often enough for me although his recent streak of questionable play is worrying. As far as the other starting CB spot, it's got to be solidified I agree. Could it be through resigning McLovin? Could it still be Aaron Williams? Could it be a free agent? Maybe. I personally would rather see our 1st rounder spent elsewhere but I could see an argument for CB.

    Again we are sticking with this because its been working so well for us?

    And even a new DC is still going to want his guys to come in.

    Put George Wilson there and he'd do the same thing.

    Re: Time to blow this team up

    You want to keep Gailey around x-era?

    Does the talent even matter with him at the helm? Guy is awful, no amount of talent can cover up his sshortfalls. He had Calvin Johnson and Demaryius Thomas but started Nesbitt, nuff said.

    Maybe we can lure Dick Jauron back to just DC when Cleveland cleans house in a couple months.

    Then we won't need a bunch of new guys LMAO

    And on this last play where Whitner was jogging half speed to lend help to the corner on a deep ball to Lance Moore.

    Re: Time to blow this team up

    Fire Chan Gailey, cut Ryan Fitzpatrick, draft a franchise QB, and keep the rest of the team together.

    In Buddy Nix's first year, he said there wasn't a huge gap between your best team and your worst team in terms of talent.

    And I believe he's right, to an extent.

    I don't know if Matt Barkley or Gino Smith fit the bill, but it's obvious that Ryan Fitzpatrick is not a starting NFL quarterback. He's pathetic.

    I seriously think Rob Johnson was better.

    No, and that once again comes down to coaching.

    We are miles away from teams like the Texans, Patriots, Bears, Saints and Niners.

    Yes, on any given Sunday you could win, true. However we'd lose to any of those teams 95 times out of 100 the way we all stand right now.

    There's a huge talent gap between us and them as well as just as huge of a coaching gap.

    So failure of players to do what they've been taught to do their entire lives like blocking, tackling, and covering is also on the coaches? We are talking about breakdowns at the most fundamental levels.
