Starting 22

After two preseason games, what do you project the respective starting 11 to be?

Here's one west-coasters view:

OFFENSE:

QB: Ben

HB: FWP

FB: Davis

WR: Hines, Holmes (Washington, Sweed)

TE: Heath

LT: M. Smith

LG: Kemo

C: Hartwig

RG: Simmons

RT: Colon

 

DEFENSE:

LE: Aa. Smith

DT: Snack

RE: Keisel

LOLB: Woodley

ILB: Farrior, Timmons (who is going to need an outstanding nickname soon)

ROLB: Silverback

LCB: Ike

SS: Troy

FS: Clark

RCB: McFadden

 

A few observations:

O-Line...blows.  D-Line...might be worse.  I would actually entertain the idea of seeing Snack and Hoke on the field at the same time, with Aaron Smith and Kirschke at the end positions.  yes, i know, that would mean running a 4-3.  but against LT, Taylor/Jones-Drew, we might need the extra bulk, based on what i saw against the run last night.

Timmons is a monster and should start week 1.

Ben will struggle to play a full season if the o-line does not improve its play immediately.  If they can keep him upright, he'll throw for 30 TDs easily, and he and Holmes will travel to Honolulu come February.

I think that Deshea, while a crafty vet, and a valuable member of our secondary needs to move to FS/Nickelback to make way for the younger, stronger, faster, more atheltic McFadden.

Please weigh in on what you think.
