Don't mean to be presumptuous, but I have a feeling the rider section could become clogged with a lot of posts all of the same nature. Thus, I propose this as the post for all comments on what the riders need to do to improve next year.
My suggestions are:
1) go out and get a great QB. Let's look at the teams left. Maas, Ray, Printers, Dickenson, Calvillo, and Allen. Enough said.
2) Go out and get one more great receiver, providing that Dominguez will be back and healthy.
3) I'm not ready to give up on the coaching staff yet. They have done good things with good players, just not great things with great players.
4) replace at least two of the secondary. To me Bush and McCalla aren't what they used to be.
I am willing to buy a season's ticket that I will not use next year (because I live so far away) if the Riders make these improvements. Further, I would be willing to donate the ticket to school kids in the area to go to the game to. If I remember correctly, JM02 is a teacher and may be able to find worthy kids to go. Bottom line, the riders need to improve if we want to be serious contenders that should win rather than peripheral contenders that might win.
