I'll go ahead and disagree with this analysis.
Our OL will be better with Miller at center and Kalis in at guard, our WR group will be better with Darboh, Dilleo and Gallon, with some Cheson mixed in, the Funch is a year older, Devin is a better QB than Denard, and Green will be better odds are than anything we had running last year.
On defense, yeah, we lost Ryan, but we are getting Countess back. And Ryan may come back in October.
I can easily see us winning 9 or 10 games this year.
I will say though, that 2014 will be the year we run the table.
