Football: better year?

Recommended Posts

Game day performance will dictate our ceiling every year.

I just hope they have time to gel and can give a pocket passer enough time to get the ball out. Also help get the running game going. It’s the key to being successful in offense. If the oline is dominant and the defense is as good as we believe it should be. We are in for a great season. Game day performance will dictate our ceiling this year 

Yeah.... I do hope they gel right away.  If they do, I think they can be a lot better than they were last season.  I am of the mind the defense will take a huge step forward this season.  I think there is a lot of experience and older guys in key positions... we have a really good mix of youth and experience.  We actually have a pretty solid team... guys have played a lot of football.

As I look at the schedule a few games have me worried (@HOU, playing in Philly in Nov. and obviously UCF), but no game has me legitimately scared. The WR group is arguably the most talented we have had. I trust the coaches to pick the best QB for the job whether it's Barnett, Chris O, or Kean. The HBs: Mack Attack 2.0? and Cronkite. As stated above the O-Line is always important but I believe in the guys we have. I think the defense will be the X-Factor, many important players leaving, but everyone knows how good a defensive coach CCS is and the team is still very talented. I am very optimistic for this season.

If we have an accurate QB (who's not laid out flat on his back), we can be pretty dangerous. We've never had more than one go-to receiver who will catch clutch balls for us. This year is going to be different.

RBs? I'll wait and see... Mack made his own yards. The O-line, let's see how that goes.

Without QF it cannot be better.

But Barnett was supposed to be our Tee Martin, and QF our P. Manning. So things are supposed to get even better right?

Here's the other wildcard. If we have a great defense, we can win a lot of games. We hadn't had that in a long time or so it seems to me.

I think we take a step back but we will be much better in November than we are in August.  I have us pegged for 8-9 wins not including the bowl.

This is a 7-5 team. Flowers masked a lot of the flaws that will show this year.
