Adel Yazji from Jacksonville:
I really feel like Alvis Whitted does not get much recognition. I feel like he's coming along really well, and he has excellent speed, so why doesn't anyone give him much respect? I think if he gets some plays for him, his emergence as a third receiver will be very good because, after all, when he did go deep and get thrown to, he caught it every time. What do you think?
Phil Noel from Mission Valley, CA:
There has been speculation, should Hardy Nickerson actually be ready to play this year, that Tom Coughlin would consider moving T.J. Slaughter outside. I personally think that's a really bone-head idea. Slaughter is a tough but slow inside guy. He was just beginning to get comfortable playing inside late last year. I say keep him there and let him learn the position, and if Nickerson can play, put him outside. I am extremely skeptical of Nickerson's ability to play a full season. Your thoughts?
Aaron Thomas from Jacksonville:
Clearly the AFC Central has the best running backs in the NFL (Fred Taylor, Jerome Bettis, Eddie George, Jamal Lewis and Corey Dillon). Do you think it would be wise for the Jaguars to invest in a run-stuffing defensive tackle?
Glenn Gaynon from Neptune Beach, FL:
I really enjoyed your web cast last week and will listen in the future. I think it's a great idea to have an icon on the web page to be able to listen at your own convenience. Now that the so-called unsignable Brunell is signed to a cap-friendly deal, what do you think about our chances next year? I think we're at least 10-6 and maybe better, barring major injuries. Before you laugh, look at the opponents and the core of this team with a couple of draft-day additions. Do you agree?
Javier Bencomo from El Paso, TX:
One of my biggest worries is that with the loss of Leon Searcy and some of the other offensive linemen who were not re-signed, the Jaguars will have to do with a make-shift offensive front once again. So, my question is: Do free agents lose value if they are not signed before the draft and, if so, can the Jaguars afford to sign a veteran lineman to help out?
