A modernized scheme will help things, but Spencer and Bartell probably don't have that much time left. Change of scheme might be what it takes for Van Dyke or Checkwa to turn some heads, but if that doesn't help, I look for us to draft a corner or two next year.

Plus Richard Seymour, Cooper Carlisle, and Carson Palmer have been in the NFL at least 10 years each so looking for their heirs might be on a near agenda in the furture.

We have a few older players with a few years left (ie. Palmer, Seymour, Kelly, Carlisle) that IMO are keeping the team together and making us "competitive" for the next couple years while Reggie rebuilds the team. I mean to sound like a "negative Nancy" but I don't expect us to take the division for a few years.

The Broncos and Chiefs have made some GREAT, GREAT additions this off season.(and the Chiefs still have A TON of cap $$ left)

The Chargers still have the players to complete for the division very year.

I hope the team that Reggie was able to put together for this season surprises everyone. We'll find out when they take the field.
