Obviously we have to block, or avoid injuries, or not turn the ball over, or have good special teams...but all teams need to do those things to win.
What is a particular "key" or "factor" that YOU think we'll have to see in order to be successful this year?
For example, here are my 3 that I don't know if everyone would agree or have so high up on the priority list...
- Get instant impact from freshman WRs Darboh and Chesson on offense and Pipkins and Bolden on defense --- IMO, we need these 4 to fill the roles of '11 Odoms & Roundtree...'11 Campbell and Beyer/Hawthorne in terms of impact.
- Get more out of return game --- we were TERRIBLE last year in the return game, hopefully guys like Gallon, Norfleet, D. Johnson, etc. can make an impact.
- Denard's leadership --- Denard has to become more steady in his approach, last year we lost two terrible games, but bounced right back due to the steady leadership of Molk, Martin, RVB, etc., Denard has to be that this year during games. Hopefully we win them all.
The freshman WR one is so key IMO, I do see Jerald Robinson stepping up, but we still need more help at WR. If the freshman can't do it...I think Devin Gardner is going to have to be dominant on the outside. You ask why? Because I don't see us getting much from the TE position, in fact, I think 3WR, 2RB will be our primary set. People keep talking about replacing Hemingway, we also have to replace Koger.
