I envision something along the lines of...

LT Backus
LG Sims
C Dom
RG Nagy
RT Reiff

Definitely don't think there would be as much change as I would like. In a perfect world Backus, Dom, Peterman, and Gos would all be replaced but that may be a tad unrealistic over one season.

You can make a point that we have dire needs for every starting defensive position aside from DT and MLB.

You could also argue that we are in dire need of a dynamic RB, and a highly ranked WR to compliment CJ. Along with those, we could also use upgrades in 4 of our 5 offensive line starting positions.

In other words, our roster is like a desert in terms of talent, with a couple of palaces in the middle of nowhere. Never any water or fertile land surrounding these palaces, so really what good is there to own them?
(I'm trying to say who the hell knows what we're gonna do with our #5 overall selection).

LT Reiff or Backus or #5 pick
LG Sims
C Riaola or Nagy or Rookie or FA
RG Rookie or FA or Peterman
RT Cherilus or Fox or Reiff

I think that covers most scenarios

How I want it to play out:

LT Reiff
LG Sims
C Rookie (Jones?)
RG Warmack
RT Cherilus

How I think it will play out:

LT Backus
LG Sims
C Riaola
RG Nagy
RT Cherilus

Thank god for Sims...

If Reiff isn't starting somewhere on the line come the start of the season everyone should be fired.

I think Cherlius is allowed to walk because of Reiff at the very least.

I feel the exact same way. He needs to have a bigger role than an extra OT/TE. Every time that guy runs out on the field it's basically showing the other team the play call. They're so predictable. I went to a few games this year and was able to call the exact play almost every time when he was on the field and I looked at the defense. It was pathetic.

According to the team, they believe Reiff's long-term projection is at LT. I don't think it would be wise to shift him to RT for one year, instead of keeping Cherilus over Backus.

Hopefully Cherilus can be signed at a reasonable contract. He has improved each year and player very well this season. I expect he is may get some big offers.

I really want to see what Cherilus can do when we replace the dead weight of Peterman next to him.

Bring back Cherilus and add a new face next to him.
