Awesome instant analysis, Hank! ;-D

I would comment also that Garrard is a winner because the Jags drafted not only the tackles, but also WRs Mike Thomas, Jarett Dillard and Tiquan Underwood. Thomas was the draft’s premier slot receiver who knows how to beat press coverage off the line. He's got a Wes Welker frame, only stronger and quicker. Dillard caught a whopping SIXTY touchdowns in his collegiate career at Rice, and has outstanding hands and ball skills.

Great analysis. ;-D

One thing though, I noticed there is no mention of the writers Cafe handle at the end of the article. ;-)

Loved the article. The thing that struck me- the part about Bowe. Losing Gonz, and no WR to draw defensive attention, means coverage can roll to Bowe. I was willing to overlook Cassel's untested-ness, with a coach who's unfamiliar with him and a system he didn't surprise in last year, but this lack of pass-catching options doesn't make Bowe a winner, IMO.

Rereading the article, found this error- "Rice has had two injury-plagued season".
