Default Obvious needs, post-Texans game

1. MLB- Mauluga is pathetic in all facets of the game.

1b. OLB- Lawson has to go

2. TE- Gresham is overrated

3. S- someone has to cover a TE.

4. QB?- Dalton has looked average against decent teams. He's not an upper-echelon NFL QB. The Pro Bowl invite last year was wholly due to better guys sitting out due to Super Bowl or injuries.

5. C- Cook has been underwhelming; Robinson has shown some promise

Hate Maualuga.

That's all.

Rey *****. Gresham is stupid and slow. Green-Ellis slowest running back in NFL.

I dunno if Burfict gets shifted to the middle, but either way, Rey and Lawson need to be shown the door.

As for Gresham, he's just not explosive, nor does he routinely secure the football. Gresham is a decent NFL, TE, but not an upper echelon one. His Pro Bowl appearance was similar to Dalton's in that better players were either hurt or playing in the SB. Having guys like Graham, Gronk, and Hernandez drafted after him just makes his inconsistency worse.

Safety should be an easy fix because there are 5-6 guys who can be had from late 1st-3rd round that can step in and immediately upgrade the safety position. The Taylor Mays experiment has yielded nothing, and Crocker/Clements combo is old and slow.

Dalton is the most troubling because the FO has so much invested in him. That being said, he doesn't possess velocity or the innate knack for consistently throwing guys open, and he exhibits a propensity to run at the first sign of pressure. It'd be a major coup if Cincy can figure out a way to draft Teddy Bridgewater in 2014.

Yeah I think we need another TE too. Could we get a 2nd or 3rd rd pick for gresham??

First things first.....

Show Kyle Cook and Rey Maualuga the door. Period. Neither of them need to be on this team next year.

Second, RB with speed to pair with BJGE. Ben Jarvis had a fairly good game. Get someone who can compliment him.

Gresham gets one more year to fix his ******** inconsistency. Pro bowl TE when he is consistent.

LB needs to be addresses multiple times in this draft. 2 high picks.

Safety is an obvious selection.

QB. Dalton should get one more year to improve. Plain and simple. He has regressed big time. He gets scared and takes off instead of stepping up and finding someone. Grow some balls.

Offensive Coordinator. I pray gruden leaves for a HC job. He is horrible. Bratkowski could have called a better game.

Tough loss. I'm sick to my stomach right now.

Gresham is so overrated. I am beginning to wonder if dalton is also. Get rid of Tate. Play the kid Herron in the backfield.

I've been saying this for a while now!!!! Draft someone like DeAndre Hopkins and then draft Stedman Bailey later on. The more explosive options we have the more dangerous we can be. We also need another RB as well.

2nd round WR's should be available, including Mike Wallace clone Markus Wheaton from Oregon State.

Totally agree on the LB's and TE's. We should adress the safety issue in either our late 2nd or 3rd round pick in my opinion. But I think of our biggest needs if not the biggest is Center, Cook is awful and who knows about Robinson. Dalton is what he is a 10-15 QB in the NFL. But we do need to draft a QB in the later rounds.

I concur on Cook. Robinson isn't great, but he's better than Cook.

I completely agree with this list! I know #4 won't be a popular name on the list, but he really isn't that good. A.J. makes him look good. We need a better QB.

I really hate to say it, but I just don't think Dalton is the answer at QB. The game appears too quick for him and he is too slow to react...even after 2 years. There is no QB in the draft that I think is the answer. I think the best we can do at this point is protect our QB as much as possible and improve the play of the O-line. Whether it is coaching or talent....it is just not up to par.

I'm not sold on Gruden as OC either. It is as if the other teams know EXACTLY what route is being run by our WRs and EXACTLY how deep the route is....it is as if our receivers are running right INTO THE COVERAGE?!?!?! WTF??!!

I know we have S and LB needs but after these past few games it is hard for me to even think about taking a defensive player in the first couple of rounds.

The O needs so much help. Need a fast RB another WR etc. Gotta improve a lot on that side of the ball.

Isn't this the season that the new minimum cap demands they have to spend it?

I pretty much agree with all the stuff you said except this. How can you give a second year QB only 1 more year to improve and then kick him to the curb. Yes he has slightly regressed but most second year quarterbacks do, look at Cam. The way I see it is he's still young and developing and has led us to the playoffs two consecutive years. I know that this is a tough loss, but you need to see the bigger picture, which is this team is heading in the right direction. 2 consecutive winning seasons, 2 consecutive playoff appearances. If that doesn't excite you for what is to come, then you must not really be a fan.
