Houston desperately needs help in the secondary. They finished last in the league in pass defense and it prevented a talented Houston team to yet again miss the playoffs. A defensive end on the other side of Mario Williams would help in addition to offensive line upgrades.
Indianapolis Colts’ Bill Polian said on his radio show that he regretted taking defensive end Jerry Hughes instead of offensive tackle Roger Saffold. Saffold has become the Rams’ left offensive tackle, protecting Sam Bradford’s blindside. I don’t understand why Manning needs a franchise left tackle anyways? All he does it take a dive just before he’s about to get hit. Oh, and another thing: Manning expects his receivers (mainly Austin Collie) to get hung out to dry by his passes, yet he’s unwilling to get sacked? Manning’s a punk, a wuss, not a real football player. Now that I’ve got that off my chest, the Colts’ other needs are a defensive tackle or two, considering how they were gashed in the running game during the season.
Jack Del Rio is brought back for another season and the players really like him, but the team needs more than a decent coach. The secondary was abysmal in 2010, especially safety. Corner could be upgraded as well as Rashean Mathis hasn’t been his old self for a couple years now and Derek Cox is really inconsistent. Another defensive end could be brought in, although they drafted two last year. A number one wide receiver would do wonders and a franchise quarterback needs to be drafted for the future, as David Garrard is getting older and probably hit his ceiling this year.
Now that we know that Vince Young will be gone, the Titans will be looking for a quarterback for sure. Another wide receiver could be brought in since Randy Moss is probably not going to be brought back as he was non-existent after the Titans picked him up. Outside linebacker is a position of need and maybe a defensive back, more safety probably since Alterraun Verner had a great rookie year.
