    Same here. This is the first time Iíve seen our team and was excited going into the season.

    But like you said, while itís preseason, the team feels blah. Wasnít impressed with Lock at all either. Thatís just me. Canít seem to run the ball either. Scary.

    Depth is subjective though. During a regular season game, unless something goes really really wrong, you're never going to have mass substitutions. You're not going to have 5 backup o-linemen coming in together, instead you'll get 1 backup between starters. Same thing on D, you're not going to have all backup DBs, you're going to have a backup coming in to play with starters.

    Depth from player 54 to 90 on the roster really doesn't matter. It's about the 45th player being able to come in and not be bad playing with good players.

    Not sure if anyone has noticed but finding an average tackle is this league is hard.
    He had a lot more than 2 drives last season....

    A broken thumb isn't huge. It happens to QB's all the time and it's nothing major to overcome.

    ha, saw that coming. Hopefully it heals quick if it is the case and doesn't set him back too far in his development

    This is a fair point. The one place you struggle when you have no depth though is special teams as a lot of those players are depth. I feel like that's one area we're feeling it so far this offseason.

    The timeline is big. There's no chance they release Hogan now. And if it's not an 8+ week injury where Lock might go on IR, then it seems very unlikely they'll keep Rypien since no team would use 4 roster spots on QBs.

    Probably fine but our TEs are cursed.

    He's got good work ethic. If he does have a broken thumb, he'll work hard to learn in other ways. Chances are he isn't starting this season anyway, his real growth won't be something we'll see until the 2020 offseason.

    I'm a Special Teams coach, so it kills me watching the team struggle on Teams. According to McMahon they're constantly rolling through players on Specials so it's always different giving guys the chance to make plays. I'll trust him there, but I am worried about it. Hopefully players 23-53 are enough depth to improve them.
