The Gene Smith era was indeed a very dark one. I feel good about Caldwell. He seems smart and makes many smart moves. Caldwell also has a good eye for talent. With a strong draft this team could push .500 or better in 2014.
I'm thinking WR. I am not even counting on blackmon this year and if you take him out of the equation we have a very weak wr group. Shorts always seems to come up short. Sanders is a good lateral player but not a good receiver yet. We need help in this area badly.
I believe this guy is good enough to get us into the playoffs with enough talent around him. This poor guy has never played with a talented team but still performed pretty well under the circumstances. I believe in Henne and believe he will be a good QB until that younger QB for the future is groomed. He has heart, leadership ability, and just tough. He does throw too many ints but with enough time in the same offense and a decent WR group good things can happen.
This draft class seems to lack that Qb that you can just plug in day one. It could be beneficial to allow a young QB to sit back the first half or even an entire season until he knows the offense. Vick should be affordable and could add some excitement to this team combined with fisch's playcalling could put an early spark to this ball club. Vick is injury prone but is still the most atheltic Qb in football. I think it could be a good fit for a 1 or 2 year deal.
