    I would honestly love to see him in ATL next to Julio and Ridley. Hes trying for NY so we may see the good Dez if they make that happen. Hope he doesnt land on a team that has a mobile QB. If I was him Id play cheap to land in NE as well

    Baltimore seems like a potential force, if they were to ever fire Harbaugh. Not that he's bad, but the FO is great at acquiring everyone other than offensive skill players. If you've had this issue for such a long time, there is either an issue in talent acquisition or coaching (my bet is predominantly in the former), both of which that could rectified if you had a good offensive coach with a vision.

    I still think pass rushing is going to be an issue.I just don't see our guys winning 1 on 1s.

    I love the talent upgrades JRob has made the last two seasons.

    What will make or break this defense, IMO, is how fast the secondary can gel as a unit. New coaches. New players. It'll take time.

    Another factor is how well some of the older players hold up. Woodyard will be 32 when the season begins as will Po. JRob has added some better depth but injuries always play a role.

    I'm going to toss the improvement at NT in here too. Whether it's Johnson, Logan or a combination of the two, I think the Titans have to get better play from this position than they have the last couple of seasons.

    Pees had Ngata and Williams at NT when he was with the Ravens so let's hope he can coach up the position.

    Lol, Harbaugh is one of the best coaches in the NFL. That's absolutely ridiculous. There problem isn't Harbaugh, It's the front office that hasn't invested anything into the offense, and the little they have invested has been the rather dismal pieces that Harbaugh was able to actually get a good year or two from before they fizzled out.

    One of the best coaches in history? My point was that he isn't a problem, but I don't think it's any coincidence that the offensive rosters for LA, Philadelphia, and now Chicago were completely revamped upon the arrival of an offensive-minded HC. I meant that if they had a situation like LA, where a coach arrives and adds offensive pieces and a system which actually works, they could be a dangerous team.

    No, not history, just in today's NFL. His 60% win rate and super bowl ring with a rather mediocre level of talent proves as much. I never said he was or had some of the greatest offensive minds in the NFL today either, but he hasn't had the talent to even prove that. I don't know why you included Chicago with the Rams and Philly, and not to take anything away from their coaching staff, but they have a heap of talent on the offensive side of the ball. Baltimore's talent at the play making positions has consisted of career resurgences and failed draft picks that largely fall off after a few years, especially if they leave Baltimore.

    The reality is nobody is making Flacco, Breshad Perriman, and Allen a top offense. Yet, Harbaugh has once again shown his aptitude by taking a failed late round waiver-recipient and turning him into one of the top running backs last year.

    The problem with Newsome's Baltimore has always been and still is their inability to make offensive stars outside of blockers.
