I Don’t See the Holes!

All these holes, I don’t see!

You keep reading about how the WFT’s roster still have some major gaping holes to fill on both our offense and defense including linebacker, safety tight end, quarterback and left tackle. I don’t see the holes just hope we have the coaching, teaching and Xs and Os.

Players have down years and good years, players in this league are continually going from progression and digressions…For example, Chase Young (in his second year) might see a drop off due to the sophomore jinx; however, in a contract year Jonathan Allen might just put up career numbers.

I am disgusted by these pundits and NFL insiders who never seem to eat the crow predicting players as good as bad, left and right,  weak and strong…these games are not won in April they are won in December. Pundits are saying safety is a hole. By far the player with the best chance of actually making the All-Decade Team 2020 if not Young is Landon Collins.

If Collins rehab is successful and he rebounds to his former glory adding 3 or 4 more pro bowls or all pros with a Super Bowl championship or you might see a Hall of Fame player instead of a villain Bruce Allen FA acquisition bust.  Don’t forget Collins is only 26 and maybe the greatest WFT defensive player ever and the guy who talked just as well as he played, Sam Huff came from those same New York Giants where he played well in his early part of his career. There are a variety of tight end youngsters on the roster behind Logan Thomas…and Thomas (who still does not have much mileage on him for his 30 years of age) if he falters we could have a problem. Wedo have youngsters who might be able be able to put up production and I still haven’t given up on Jeremy Sprinkle making the team  as a 2nd TE.

If you’re really watching Sprinkle’s performance over the past couple seasons, his biggest liability has been his drop balls or rather butterfingers which former players preach is very correctable on this level.

Left tackle we got very good play last season and I would feel unless these players are liabilities in terms of their skill set we seemed to have added depth at this position.

People once again choosing reputations, star power, muscles and scouting combine to what was actual VERY good play last season from the LT position because when that position is a liability an offense cannot function.

The running backs had holes and the quarterback was protected.

As for LB, we need a few more players it appears to get to 7 or 8 but with the upcoming draft we should be set. Cole Holcomb looked great last season and Bostic was workman like. We have some youngsters like Stanford’s Casey Toohill and Michele Keleke Hudson but it does appear we need to draft lb heavy. Veteran KJ Wright is an option but once again, I don’t see the holes by training camp.  This is the most complete WFT roster in decades—QB included from Kyle Allen’s and Taylor Henicke’s work last season. Remember, Allen had a fan club brewing before his injury and his rookie year received praise, too.

Once again THESE ARE PROS. People, give them a chance to perform and don’t stick a fork in a team in April or call this roster which by the way last year from some pundits referred to as the worst WFT roster ever.

So people I don’t see the holes.

Quarterback is set with the 4 on the roster with 3 potential franchise QBs and 1 old timers looking to put it all together. Remember, 3 QBs for 3 Lombardi’s here in WFT, we don’t need college Johnny Football at QB to win here in the DMV.

It would be nice to get 1 super athletic high level linebacker at least to fit in to a d efense that on the field looks well, all good last season.
