Re: SHOULD Chuck Bresnahan keep his job?
Tory James is gone after this year.
O'Neal's contract is up as well.
Simmons - old and slow.
Justin Smith - due for a huge payday in free agency (which is fine with me, because he lacks any sort of pass rush ability).
Geathers - restricted free agent.
Kaesviharn - free agent, probably gone.
Miller & Johnson - free agents, so one is probably gone.
Thurman - fuhgedabout it. He's done in Cinci.
Pollack - done.
Ratliff - not sure about him.
Greg Brooks - not sure.
Joseph - starter at CB.
Williams - starter at S.
Jackson - starter at S.
Adams - starter at T.
Peko - starter at T.
Ahmad Brooks - starter?
Robinson - not sure about him.
Thornton - gone.
Fanene - not sure.
Nicholson - in the rotation.
Obviously, a bunch of potential holes on defense for 2007. Add in the loss of Bresnahan who is a complete dumbass, and this defense will look very different next year (hopefully for the better).
They best be drafting the best corner, linebacker, or rush end in rounds 1 through 4, with the hope of a good tight end in there too. I think we lose our 3rd round pick due to the selection of Brooks in the supplemental.
