alright I'm game.. its looks like the strength of the team is defense.. but plenty of holes to go around IMHO.
QB: Grade C+ Favre as always can work his magic here or self implode. His recievers are limited and he needs to work with in what he has. Rodgers seems to be coming along.
RB: Grade C- Green has several questions and I have to wonder how healthy and effective he'll be (before his injury he wasn't that good last year). Ditto to a lesser degree with Davenport and Gado. I think Gado will have to carry the load. Lets be honest this group may need a lot of help unless they can recover from there injuries.
WR: Grade D+ Driver really is the only weapon. Gardner and Marc Boerigter are castoffs from other teams and I hope one of them turns into something. Furgeson is a stiff IMO. I think we need to be patient with the rookie Jennings.
TE Grade C- Bubba a good redzone target and above average blocker but teams have no fear of him between the hashes. Martins a big dud.. our biggest hope is Lee can develop into somekind of weapon to take advantage of the deep seems.
K/P/ST Grade D- Cundiff is in for a surprise when he tries to kick a field goal in the frozen tundra. I've been there during games.. and the wind is a nightmare for kickers. Our Punters are pathetic. Maybe ST can figure it out
O-Line Grade C I'm optimistic here and think this unit can become a strength to this team again. Tauscher and Clifton are an above tandem at tackle. I hopeful Colledge can be the real deal... still big questions at guard and center. I've heard good things about RG Junius Coston.. but why didn't last years coaching staff give him a shot? Center looks like a huge hole.
D-Line C+ This is a sold group but I think it will be poor against the run. KGB and Kampen get it done but really don't anything really special. THe DTs are young and hopefully develops with vet Pickett showing them how its done.
LB Grade B+ This has a the potential to be a top group in the NFL IMHO. Hawk is the real deal and his presence will help unleash the beast in Barnett as well. To really turn the corner we'll need Hodge to become something. Also maybe Ben Taylor or Manning can showup as a SLB.
DBs Grade B I like this unit.. but I think the key could be Woodson. We need him to be the CB he's getting paid to be. Not the 30 year old injury prone CB he has been the last few years. I hope Ted didn't blow this signing because the potential is there. Harris , Manuel, and Collins look solid.
