Apologies if this is redundant, but I think we've had one hell of an offseason. How many teams can say they have improved every single position on the field, and in some cases markedly... Go down the list and, if we stay healthy, we're better everywhere
OLINE: Bass, contract year, coming into prime
Rachal, coming into prime
Staley missed what 6-7 games last year
Obvious additions of Davis/Iupati
Boone in shape
WR: full year of Crabtree with experience
Morgan/Hill coming into prime
Tedd Ginn Jr adding speed
QB: The most controversial, but I'm an Alex fan and I expect huge things this year.
improved O-line, improved WR, more confidence, 2nd year with same
coordinator... better WR play means less deflected balls/ints (seems like we
had a lot last year)
RB: Dixon adds depth, maybe supplants Coffee... additions to OL improve RB play
TE: Hopefully Nate byham proves to be better than Pascoe, if so, we're better
I expect VD to continue to develop, softening those hands over time.
KR/PR: don't need to explain this one.
LB: Brooks, Haralson, Willis, Lawson (contract year) all coming into prime
Bowman probably a better Mike backup
CB: Nate uninjured, returns with huge chip on his shoulder, he is the kind of guy
that will work his ass of and bounce back....
Brown will probably be improved
S: Mays, if he is able to learn quickly will be a huge upgrade at backup SS... who
knows, maybe he supplants Lewis
Goldson coming into prime
DL: meh... probably the only spot that there wont be much improvement... maybe
Mcdonald or Balmer, but I don't have my fingers crossed.
Coaching: Solari, Brown, Schottenhiemer, Alex has another year with Raye, Sing
has a full year under his belt, might lead to better planning/game
I welcome any criticism
