Our woes can be boiled down to a few key areas, most of which we have known about for a long time.
First, our linebackers remain a weak unit and an embarrassment to those of us who remember Van Pelt, Banks, Taylor, Carson, Reasons, Kelly, Headen, Hunt etc.
Second, our OL remains below average, aging and thin (no depth). We have seen this developing for a few years and have not done enough to fix it. If your line can't establish a running game, your passing game will suffer. Pass protection slid as this season progressed as well.
Lastly is the surprise in the group. Our DL can't stop the run. I never saw this coming. True, our LB aren't helping this but I figured with Canty, Joseph and Bernard the starters with any help from Austin we'd be just fine. I was wrong. Osi looks like a dancing bear out there against the run and Tuck is either disinterested or just too banged up to make a difference.
Draft priority: we need to reload both trenches.
