Playing Devil's Advocate here.
Objectivity is often portrayed as negativity.
At 8-8 (which is undeniably mediocre), there is not a lot of positivity to be gleaned from this past season.
Which units of our team are definitely trending upwards?
O-line? Nope. WR's? Nope. Running backs? Nope. Special Teams?
DL? Maybe, if the younger guys get more of a chance to play and contribute.
CB's? May be the only unit with Lewis and Allen showing promise as starters.
QB? We're set with Ben but have no reliable backup.
Colbert didn't sound too positive with his year-end summary of the team.
