Trimmed some fat? They gutted most of the talent out of their team. Two top recievers(both 900+ yd recievers), a top 5 cb in the game, and a qb that threw for almost 4000 yds for them last year. Replaced that with AJ green and a rookie qb...with a short offseason for the rookies to learn the game at a pro level.
Grossman isn't that bad, when he started against the giants in week 17 he threw for 336 yds and 2 tds, two weeks earlier than that he threw for 322 and 4 tds. I don't care if beck is getting a shot to start a preseason game grossman will be starting week 1. Ryan kerrigan has looked good too so their front 7 gets stronger.
Bills could have a shot at him, dareus and merriman improve their pass rush but fitz isn't much better than alex lol.
It's too early to really say with a lot of these teams. It definitely won't be us I can tell you that. We won't "suck for luck". Our division is too weak to compare to teams like the bills who could go with only one or two wins the entire year. We always have at least a few freebie games.
