Wait I forgot something....
FIRE DAN HENNING
Still need a center.. and a QB. Not saying Henne isn't the answer.. But, he sure hasn't looked it thus far.
I may be a homer, but I think with a system that fits Henne's style, he'll improve tremendously. Not saying he'll ever be elite, but I think he can be what Matt Schaub or Matt Ryan have turned into.
Joe Berger played well last season. If you have an opportunity to improve that position, then do so, but not at the expense of LG, RB, or TE.
If we get Mankins in here, I think that will reflect well on Berger. Incognito and the instability at RG haven't exactly been great for him. He's not anything special, but I can live with him for another year as long as we improve the OG position.
If you can get some athleticism at the TE, RB and LG positions, as well as get an OC who understands how to use Chad Henne, I think that you'll be in business.
To those who are afraid of money regarding Mankins, he is 100% worth whatever he wants. He's the best interior O-lineman in the NFL right now, and it's not like we've got any money invested in the interior of that 5 anyway. We've seen this season what going cheap on the O-line produces. Did we overpay for Grove and Smiley? Sure, but at least we were getting tons more production then we are now.
You get Mankins and Mark Ingram in here, and, IMO, you instantly jump back into the top 5-6 rushing teams in the NFL.
