Congi will be gone, Johnson will be gone only because he is an import
Simpson will go elsewhere or retire, McCullough will step up and have a great season
Makowski will retire (at least they have some good young blood in the system for the line)
Fantuz will head south again, not sure if he will be back
(not sure what Freeman has on his contract, hopefully more than this season)
Cates will retire, Bernard will start
Clermont will stay on through 2013 for a chance/hope to to be in a GC at home, then be a decoy in expansion draft
Hawkins will play 6 games
Dan Clarck will be a starter
They will draft high on a DL in the CIS draft, but not bring in a DE star thinking Hawkins will be good enough
They will draft a LB as their second pick
McKenzie will be replaced as a starter by Eddie Russ
the starting recieving corps will be Dressler, Getz, Hill, Bagg, Koch, Baker, JC
Tearrius Geoorge will ride the pine
Miller will stay on for 1 more year (I am still hoping that Dave Dickenson is persued)
Hall will be back
They will bring in a QB coach to help with DD...I pray
Bob Dyce will stay on because he is Tanam's buddy
Buratto will end up being an OC (oye)
Alex Smith will be retained...LBs have been solid the last couple years
Walker will be retained as DL coach, even though Hall will want him gone
The defense will still struggle, not having a rush again,,,lack of DE...even though even the TSN panel preaches how bad they need one this season. They again will stick with the same formations and leave the middle open all year.
The offense will look better, mainly because of a QB coach and some more youth on the line.
They will go 8-10 and finally realise they either need a new DE, or a DC who will change his strategy. They will elect to fire the DL coach to save Hall and recruit a DE. They will be competative in 2013.
