Default Roster depth key to championships

1. Does your team have a real swing offensive tackle, a guy that can play left or right tackle and has experience?

2. Does your team have a solid inside offensive lineman that can play guard or center?

3. Is there a quality second running back that can deliver a 100-yard rushing day if he had to start?

4. Is there a good second tight end on the roster?

5. Can the third wide receiver step up and start in the two-WR packages if a starter went down?

6. Does your team have a designated pass-rush specialist who could play the early downs if need be?

7. Is there a third defensive tackle that not only plays in a rotation but could play the whole game if need be?

8. Is there a quality nickel corner on the roster, since most teams are at least 50 percent sub defenses?

9. Is there a fourth corner for dime packages?

10. Is there a third safety for big nickel defenses?

11. Is there a return specialist that can either handle both punt and kick returns or contribute as a real position player?

12. Does your team have a special teams linebacker that leads the specials and can play inside linebacker in a pinch?

I think we have most of that other than the RB/LB ones, at 12 and 3.

We don't have a great return man that we know about.

Key to championships are your best players staying healthy and on the field. No all pros hitting the IR. Depth is great to have and is a requirement, but Id rather see our 1st stringers play through a year.

We have one, we just don't know him yet. We cannot know that which is unseen. We may only see that which is revealed to us. For only in this revelation can we truly become all knowing.

I bet there are about 50 WTF replies.

Your team must have a lot of good players to win a championship?

Air is not truly unseen, it is the perception by which we presume it to be unseen.

I'll have to go this route also. Depth is obviously huge, but so is keeping your best players healthy. I guess we had good depth because we made it to the Superbowl on much of it. But then the article would have to be, Depth is the key to a good season and strong playoff push. But to win a championship, you can't just rely on depth players who are in there replacing all pros and pro bowlers. I guess you could live with a few. But we had 7 starters out on IR in the Superbowl. Very very hard to overcome that kind of loss of talent on the field for too long, especially in the Superbowl when you're facing a team that had really no injuries to speak of and a fully healthy roster.

Hillman can deliver a 100 yard game. He just needs to hang on to thew ball.

Looking at that list; Denver is set!!!

We can hope, I know some RBs have short arms or are very muscular and it makes it harder for them to hold on to the ball. I don't see those issues with Hillman.... HE JUST NEEDS TO HOLD ON OT THE BALL!!

I think the difference was that Hillman battle "fumblitis" before and was given a second chance already.

Yeah, could be true. Hopefully, he will turn it around this year. Denver will need his speed.

I am not sure how what I feel about this. People can just walk around and video everything you do and you never know they are taping you.... Wow, Donald Sterling would have really been ****ed.
