Well, the way I see it - Ben is back and better than ever, Reid has played well in both the WR slot and as a return man, Santonio, for the most part, is learning the offense and coming along just fine, Anthony Smith has far surpassed any of our expectations (imo), we have two above-average punters, but I think experience will win out in the end. Those are some very key positives. The first team D needs to step it up a bit but I have no doubt LeBeau will have them ready for the Fins game. The OL has been average at best, but look for them to get it together and be one of the best in the NFL this season. You heard it here first.
The negatives after ONLY 2 pre-season games? We lost 2 close contests with our scrubs playing the majority of both of those games. Not an excuse, mind you - fact.
