Two Questions for you

I got two questions for you all:

1) What is this team biggest hole?

a. Lack of a pass rush? This team just has not been able to rush the passer for who knows how long. I figured I would look at career sacks for this team and see just how few they had, and I came up with 598 sacks. For comparison I looked at the Panthers who entered the league at the same time and found out they only had 53 more sacks over their history which only amounts to about 2-3 more a season. Regardless, this team has struggles to get to opposing quarterbacks which definitely makes opposing passing games succeed a lot more.

b. Lack of a QB? Over the least 2 seasons, this team has received lackluster play at the QB spot. Be it Gabbert, Henne, or even McCown, this position is just not producing as of late. The offense has been anemic, thanks mostly to the play(or lack thereof) of the QB, and without a new QB, the future of this offense does not appear so bright.

c. Lacking play on the Offensive Line? The QB issue is further compounded due to the poor protection that line provides at times. Injuries have definitely been a contributing factor, but this line, even at full strength would have started Britton or Bradfield at RT, neither of whom really should be starting in that position. As it stands, you have an aging C, a young LG who cannot seem to stay healthy, and a RG who very well might be overrated by us fans. In essence, all this team really has moving forward is a LT.

d. Other?!!(explain if you think this)

2) Let’s assume Gene Smith is out at the end of the season. When exactly does Khan lay down the law and kick Smith out? A week after the season? Not until after the Super Bowl? When?!
