Well, that subject line is all grown up now.

As part of ESPN's package today on players on the hotseat, we've looked league-wide and found ten spots that teams left unfilled this offseason.

I appreciate the Arrested Development allusion.

Sounds like the title of the worst adult film ever.

At least it is better than the ten thousand holes in Blackburn, Lancashire.

Pats backup QB spot is the second biggest hole out of any team in the league? It's a hole, no question, but I think this article overstates it a bit.

Yeah its pretty hard to believe the Patriots backup QB spot is the 2nd biggest glaring hole that wasn't filled with a "*starting-caliber* free agent or a prominent draft pick."

You might consider using this following contextual clue that lists the positions of each of the holes as numbered:

QB
QB
RB
WR
RT
RT
DE
DT
OLB
CB

It's not an ordered list.

Also is it really that crazy to think the lack of a capable backup for an age 32 QB coming off major knee surgery (where he suffered a series of post-op setbacks) isn't a potentially large-sized hole?

that would be 4000 thousand holes in Blackburn, Lancashire, but yeah.

Now they know how many holes it takes to fill DeAngelo Hall?

Maybe they can fill some holes with a zone?
