Re: Now that the dust is settling,ARE WE better this year?
Losing Randle El didn't hurt us at all. You could argue it made us better actually with more reps being given to our younger/better receivers. Sylvester will take the backup ILB role from Fox which is an upgrade. The loss of Starks will hurt a little unless Gilbert is a quick learner. Our draftees like Cameron Heyward and Brown make us younger on defense, which is something we needed to do. Other than that, we're pretty much status quo. I'd say no better, no worse.
