    2008 Roster...

    How would you like to see our 2008 Depth Chart to be? I'll make the lay out. And please guys, lets try to keep this reasonable and realistic. I dont want to see Randy Moss, Chad Johnson and Torry Holt as our receivers haha. Keep in mind our salary cap. You can even include our potential draft picks and free agent pick ups. Have fun with it

    QB - Marc Bulger
    RB - Steven Jackson
    FB - Brian Leonard
    WR #1 - Torry Holt
    WR #2 - Isaac Bruce
    LT - Orlando Pace
    LG - Alan Feneca (from Free Agency)
    C - Brett Romburg (replacement)
    RG - Todd Steussie (need to find replacement)
    RT - Alex Barron

    LDE - Leonard Little
    UT - Clifton Ryan
    NT - Adam Carikker
    RDE - Chris Long (Draft)
    SLB - Pisa Tinoisamoa
    MLB - Will Witherspoon
    WLB - Chris Draft (if Chillar isnt resigned)
    LCB - Fakhir Brown
    RCB - Ron Bartell
    FS - Atogwe
    SS - Corey Chavous (unless we get a great player in the draft or FA)

    KR - Daunte Hall
    Punt Return - Daunte Hall

    Any suggestions in change? Feel free to express opposition to this

    Honestly, we won't have the money for Faneca. And even if we did, I would much rather make a run at Gibril Wilson and have him as our SS. He is still young and getting better and him and Atogwe will become a great safety combo. We had alot of depth on our line last year before the injuries but we could add a low-level guard/tackle in free agency or the draft.

    Re: 2008 Roster...

    Carriker is UT
    Hill starts
    Chillar is retained
    Atogwe is retained
    Jacob Bell comes at a lower price than Faneca and can play tackle
    With the money we saved, we invest in a Gibril Wilson or Erik Coleman. Coleman was great before falling out of favour in the secondary and losing his job to a rookie. He's probably my preference from a fiscal perspective. If we're talking best player; Gibril Wilson- he'll cost more, though.

    I would undoubtedly have Incognito on there he is a good OL when healthy.
    Incognito starts in place of Steussie and if we did not sign Faneca I would also have Setterstrom slightly ahead of Steussie.

    This OL finished 06-07 season good:
    T Pace
    G Setterstrom
    C Romberg
    G Incognitio
    T Barron

    We dont have much depth after them and I would like to see one more starter potential OL signed or drafted. I like Incognito and believe he could play tackle or center if healthy and moved to either one permanently. I would like to see him remain at guard but if we found some one to shape up another spot I would not mind seeing them move him to center or another spot.

    T Pace
    G Faneca
    C Incognito
    G Setterstrom
    T Barron

    Re: 2008 Roster...

    Why is everyone bashing on Moose for leaving out Hill... he hasn't done anything to prove that he deserves a starting spot with this team. he is Fast sure, but it's useless if he doesn't have the intuition to go along with it.

    Our cap problems are killing us. Drew "screw the Rams" Bennett, Pace (as much as I hate to say it), Bulger (I hope will regain his composure), Are the names I see now that are hurting us the most cap wise. Maybe not the highest salaries (minus Bulger) but they are all getting more then they should be.

    I would like to see a new LB, someone big and smart and who can step up and take the lead on D. I like WW but we need a bigger guy who can step up and create problems at the line. A new SS, is a must and another DT or DE (although I would put Carriker outside and get a DT)

    Our biggest problem lies on the OL as I see it. We are in desparate need of a new OL.... all of it.

    QB - Marc Bulger
    RB - Steven Jackson
    FB - Owen Schmitt (from draft)
    WR #1 - Torry Holt
    WR #2 - Isaac Bruce
    LT - Orlando Pace
    LG - Alan Faneca (free agent)
    C - Brett Romberg
    RG - Richie Incognito
    RT - Alex Barron

    LDE - Leonard Little
    UT - Adam Carriker
    NT - Clifton Ryan
    RDE - Chris Long (from draft)
    SLB - Brandon Chillar
    MLB - Will Witherspoon
    WLB - Pisa Tinoisamoa
    LCB - Tye Hill
    RCB - Fakhir Brown
    FS - O.J. Atogwe
    SS - Craig Steltz (from draft)

    KR - Dante Hall
    Punt Return - Derek Stanley

    Probably the most notable change here is the change at fullback. Leonard can still get some playing time there and as a backup runningback, but his blocking just hasn't been good enough for him to be the starter.

    I actually think Tye Hill is a fast player. But he hadnt really impressed me too much. But come to think about it, he may be better that Ron Bartell. I may have not clearly thought it through to put Tye Hill up.

    As a matter of fact, I like Bar-bq's line up. It seems as if we can work something like that out.

    lets face it with this front office if Bruce isn't coming back for less cash and a lesser role he is not coming back at all.

    Re: 2008 Roster...

    itsguud is right. Our biggest problem is the offensive line right now. The young guys we were all counting on are injured except the worst player on the line (Barron). With little experience (except for Pace) and depth I think we really need to focus our FA and draft efforts on finding solidarity for the OL.

    For my two cents, if Bartell happened to become a cast member on LOST I wouldn't mind.

    I can't see paying for Faneca. If we were a contending team that was just one guy short on the O-line, it might make sense, but we're not. Faneca is just one year younger than Orlando Pace, and there have been many references to Orlando's age lately both on this forum and even the PD. For the money Faneca would cost, I'd rather try an find a guy who could help in the secondary (namely someone to replace Chavous) Bob Sanders would be nice, but with our FO I'm afraid that's a pipe dream. As far as the Oi-line goes I think we should address it through the diraft and add one or two reasonably priced free agents. I am hoping and praying that the Rams (barring a 1st rd trade WAY down) will steer clear of Jake "the mistake" Long. He certainly isn't worth the #2 overall pick, and to boot he's best suited to play right tackle. Barron doesn't appear to have a future at LT, but was beginning to see the light at RT. Hopefully we can get another serviceable couple of years out of big O, but no way should we draft his replacement at #2 and have the guy ride pine for 2 years -- that's crazy.
