Re: Now that the dust is settling,ARE WE better this year?
They're just finishing up the 1st week of practice and the sky is already falling? wtf !! Way too early to tell where this team stands, but here are my thoughts anyway.
QB- Hopefully Ben hasn't lost the focus he found last offseason.
WR-should be improved with experience
TE- Lost Spaeth, but signed a decent vet. That UDFA TE could be huge for us.
RB- Mendy and Redman are very good 1-2.
OL- If we can bring back Hotel and move Colon to guard we should be set. Our main problem for years has been the interior line, guard is Colon's natural position and would provide an instant upgrade.
DL- An aging but outstanding D-line.
LB- Harrison and Farrior are aging, but Woodley and Timmons are monsters. Also have Worilds and Sylvester showing promise as 2nd year players.
CB- Ike is top 10, a healthy bmack and Gay are at least avg. Butler has had a year too learn the system after showing promise in limited opportunity. Hopefully Lewis has matured a bit after spending last year in Tomlin's doghouse.
S- Need Troy healthy
