I know everyone has said their opinions but i felt like giving mine..1st the simple fact that everyone should know what to expect coming into camps and games now in year 3..even last season i felt like we had kids who were unsure of themselves and didnt look comfortable.
The Oline..alot has been said of the depth..to me this unit now has the athletic ability to run a spread offense..with guys like Omameh and Lewan it gives us the agility to have blockers on the move..something that our spread scheme has lacked IMO.
Experience at QB..its only 1 year but thats 1 year more than we have had the last 2 seasons..i think having a player in the most important position who can now make faster decisions and understanding of why we are doing what we are doing will be noticed by fans very early after kickoff..this scheme relies heavy on QB decision making.
2nd year in a defensive system..trust is a huge thing on defense..being in a system you are new to makes you do things you should not do...my example is when your in a new system with a new coach you are time pressed to learn so you learn YOUR position..and in this players tend to watch the ball and run to it ... but when you have experience with a coach and his plans you pick up on the guys around you and THEIR responsibility..and so you learn to force ball carriers to where you know your help will be ... i think this will also be noticed
and my last reason is i could not help but notice Mike Cox seems bigger and IMO he will be hitting the hole harder this year ... another thing that seemed to be lacking last year after i seen BMinor constantly injured.
