This is a continuation of the team off season needs for 2011. This time we analyze the AFC South.
QB- Peyton Manning
RB- Joseph Addai, Donald Brown
WR- Reggie Wayne, Austin Collie, Pierre Garcon, Anthony Gonzalez
TE- Dallas Clark, Jacob TammeNeeds – Future Quarterback, running back
Just like New England, Peyton Manning is also 35 years old and will likely be hanging up the cleats in a few more years. It may be time to look for that future quarterback to groom. I do not think Curtis Painter is it. The Colts have also struggled mightily in the running game the past two seasons. I think it could be more a result of poor offensive line play as both Addai and Donald Brown continue to get banged up hard each season.
QB- Kerry Collins???
RB- Chris Johnson, Javon Ringer
WR- Kenny Britt, Damian Williams
TE- Jared Cook
Needs – Quarterback
With Vince Young exiting stage right due to the squabble with Head Coach Jeff Fisher, the Titans are in dire need at the quarterback position. Can you rely on a 38 year old Kerry Collins to take you to the promised land? My answer is no. The Titans are young at all the other skill positions with solid players at each. A veteran quarterback might just be the right piece for them. Kyle Orton, Donovan McNabb, Carson Palmer could be possibilities.
QB- David Garrard
RB- Maurice Jones-Drew, Rashad Jennings
WR- Mike Sims-Walker, Mike Thomas
TE- Marcedes Lewis
Needs – Quarterback
I know I am getting to sound like a broken record, but yes Jacksonville needs a quarterback. David Garrard is average at best. We don’t really know what the current rostered receivers can do with a better quarterback. I say get one and see what happens. Problem is that current management and Coach Jack Del Rio think David Garrard is the answer. Wake up guys, that’s why your team is mediocre every season, you are getting average quarterback play. You need elite quarterback play to be a true contender.
QB- Matt Schaub
RB- Arian Foster, Ben Tate
WR- Andre Johnson, Kevin Walter, Jacoby Jones
TE- Owen Daniels, Joel Dreessen
Needs – None
Here is a team that I believe has no offensive off-season needs. They have a stud running back in Arian Foster. A stud wide receiver in Andre Johnson. Matt Schaub is more than adequate at quarterback. Owen Daniels a year removed from surgery will become a force again. Look for Houston to focus team improvements on the defensive side of the ball during the offseason.
