    I don't know. I think we'll be pretty balanced in both - meaning average. I am expecting between 15-20th in both offense and defense.

    I think we'll be able to hang our hats on the fact that we were a much improved team with a bright future.

    ^What he said. Grinding the field whenever we want. No more stalled 3 and outs with two negative runs then an incomplete pass. Ability to get the tough yards and control the clock.

    I think both will be pretty good. Both have the potential to be really good. Just have to wait and see.

    We finally have enough depth and talent to compete with some of the elite teams. A big part of our success this year is gonna depend on how fast our younger players come along.

    IMO it's easier to establish a good defense before an offense, so for that reason I believe we'll have a better D than O.

    Yea it normally takes more time for an offense to really click. A defense can flip on a dime it seems. Look at the texans

    What others here have said but yea the offense. Just look at how much money and draft choices they have dumped int to the OL or the offense as a whole. Also, if you don't feel that your offense can be elite because of an average to good QB then go to the other extreme and be a beast running team. We all know of course the best way to beat teams like the Pats, Packers, Broncos is to run the ball down their throats and sideline their offenses so they feel like they are sitting at home watching the game from a bench.

    I don't know that they've made enough personel changes to the defense in order for it to be the strength of the team. Greg Williams is going to have to earn his paycheck and find a way, scheme wise, that will have the group overachieve. The defense will be better than last year (how could it not be), but I think their ceiling is average.

    The offense, personnel-wise, has more of an advantage. And pending better QB play, has a much higher ceiling.

    Robert Johnson and Babs wont be on the field, we'll have our MLB back, and with Ayers and Brown blitzing we'll be able to press the WR's, thus more sacks.
