    Since I love the general manager aspect of games, I'm curious as to what everyone's first move will be in HK.

    For me it is pretty simple - I need linebackers.

    Here are my current starters at the position:

    D'Qwell Jackson (ok - he is a beast)

    [​IMG]

    Scott Fujita (I guess - best days are behind him and he is suspended 3 games for his unproven role in "Bounty Gate")

    [​IMG]
    And.....James Michael Johnson (Rookie out of Nevada)
    [​IMG]
    I challenge anyone to find a worse group of linebackers in the NFL. So, whether by free agency or by trade, I will be looking to upgrade this position.
    My next order of business will be to find a home for this guy -

    I figure I can get a draft pick from Cade or Bob.​

    My main concern is addressing these WR's. I guess I'm going to have to send someone after Kenny Britt to straighten him up. After that I have a 1 semi-proven guy in Nate Washington and a lot of unproven not real sure how they are going to do prospects. Probably land an FA deal at WR or maybe go after one of my targets in ATL ( DerekC will hear from me soon). Then depending on the depth of my safeties I will explore a couple of options here.

    The guy that made you think it was ok to trade AP. I have to admit that you did pretty well with him though....

    Cornerbacks, another OLB/MLB & 6'3''+ WR:

    The four locks at this time to make the 53 man roster are obvious in Ike Taylor, Keenan Lewis, Curtis Brown and Cortez Allen. With that being noted, there figures to be at least one if not two roster spots available on the 53 at the cornerback position.

    Currently there are four cornerbacks on the Steelers 90 man roster that could compete for those two spots in Terrence Frederick, Terry Carter, Andre Freeman and Walter McFadden.

    http://www.steelersdepot.com/2012/0...ers-training-camp-roster-battles-cornerbacks/


    LOLB LaMarr Woodley, Brandon Johnson
    LILB Larry Foote, Stevenson Sylvester, Marshall McFadden, Ryan Baker
    RILB Lawrence Timmons, Mortty Ivy, Sean Spence, Brandon Hicks
    ROLB James Harrison, Chris Carter, Adrian Robinson


    (Looks at Blackattack87 ) [​IMG]

    WR1 Mike Wallace, Jerricho Cotchery, Derrick Williams,
    Jimmy Young,
    Tyler Beiler

    WR2 Antonio Brown, Emmanuel Sanders, Juamorris Stewart, David Gilreath,
    Toney Clemons, Paul Cox

    Considering how much AP got hurt, what I got in return for him and what Ivory did as far as stats... It turned out pretty good. I wish I could see the numbers.

    Broncos may be in search for a decent #2 speed back to share carries with mcgahee

    This is a bit obvious but I've got to figure out what to do with this guy:

    [​IMG]

    Outside of that, the Jags need some help in the secondary. Rashean Mathis is getting old but the Jags do have to 2 young and promising corners and we just signed Aaron Ross. Safeties are probably a weak spot on our defense though. Offensively, Gabbert needs to have a good season and the WR corp, with Justin Blackmon, need to step up or I may need to make some upgrades there.

    Really would like to improve the D-Line and Safety positions. The linebackers will be the strong point of the Redskins D.

    Depending on how this guy pans out, may be looking for a proven, dependable HB

    QB position is solid with Luck. Now I only need to work on the other 21 positions...

    My first move is to decide whether I want to keep both my productive RB's or try to trade one for a another piece to the puzzle. Will depend on their contract and how they play in the game.

    My first order of business is to address the LT position. I am a raider fan so I have developed a allergic reaction to any player named Jamarcus. So LT Jamarcus Webb is hanging onto the starting job by a thread. I will not hesitate a second to start looking for his replacement. I need to find a speedy TE2 to use in power set routes to destroy the cover 2 up the middle on 12 yrd pass patterns just to keep defenses in check. My DBs are a little long in the tooth so young speedy DBs are on my wish list. I hate to even say it but I have to look for the replacement of my Team Captain Brian Urlacher, someone who will become the face of my DEF. Lastly I have approved a little renovation to Soldier Field. I have purchased a underground piping system to freeze the field for games against the Packers and Lions to slow down that pass attack, along with a hydroponic system to grow the grass longer for those late season inter-div battles. Thats all I will reveal at this time......"no further comments"

    1. Find a new head coach.
    2. Sit my team in protest for the entire 2012 season.
