Like Coach Bradley said at his press conference, "We need to just get better". There are a few ways that we can get better.
I certainly hope that Dave Caldwell is a better GM than Gene Smith. Under Smith, there were instances where we over drafted, such as when we drafted Punter Bryan Anger with the 70th overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, or Tyson Alualu, who has not produced like he was expected to after being drafted with the tenth overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft. We need better value for our picks. Also, we need to draft better players in general.
Like drafting, we can't sign players in free agency where there is a lot of risk, say Laurent Robinson. We made the mistake of signing Robinson after a breakout season with the Dallas Cowboys, not to mention that we paid Robinson a good deal of money. I'm also remembering when we signed Tory Holt in 2009, Joey Porter in 2008, and Hugh Douglas in 2003. All I'm trying to say is, is that we need to be more careful in the Free Agency Market.
I certainly hope Bradley is as good of a coach as he is advertized, since we can really only get better. We need to manage the play clock better. We need to do better at play calling. We need to do better in practice. And, even if we practice one play a hundred times in practice, and do it perfectly every time, if we don't execute it properly on the field, then something must have gone wrong in practice, and then that blame falls onto the coach. We just need to do a better job.
I can name five players that need replaced, whether they are starters, or just backups: Eben Briton, OL, Zach Potter, TE, Laurent Robinson, WR, Chris Prosiniski, S, Guy Whimper, OT. What these players have in common are: Injury prone (Britton, Robinson), poor play (all of them), expensive (Robinson). We need to do something with this roster, I'm not kidding.
All in all, we just need to get better.
