I could see the OLine being better with the addition of Dawkins at RT, though there may be rookie growing pains. I could see the defensive line being better with a full season from Lawson and a focused season from Dareus and a return to the better fit of a 4-3. Everywhere else I think got worse or at best stayed the same:
CBs - Gilmore to White - downgrade, NRC gone, depth is a ????
WRs - Woods to Jones - ???? could go either way, depth is another ???
LBs - Zach Brown to Ragland - downgrade, can the linebackers play McD's scheme?
S - Graham & Williams to Hyde & Poyer (I'd feel better if we get Boston) - ???? Could go either way
RB - Gillislee to ????
Yes, the coaching staff is bringing a more disciplined approach, but it's also a first time head coach and they are implementing a new offensive and defensive scheme, there are likely going to be growing pains. I don't think we'll go 2-14 (we never do), but it's a tough schedule with a lot of changes and a lot of questions, I can't see a legitimate playoff push right now.
don't for get to add the defense was 27th 21st 10th 10th and lucked up a ranked 2nd the past 5 yrs . Let the fire begin both will be fired by the 3rd season
