That being said he is correct on all points. Teams know Andrew Luck is a game changer and the only one we have besides Hilton. Teams will blitz us like last year because our line is terrible and will hold that reputation until proven otherwise. I don’t agree with him that Luck once hit will cry like a kitten, he’s tough and we all know that. However we need to see Ballard bring in talented players in free agency and the draft. We should be very active in FA this year, at least spending money on a big name or 2, Norwell being a popular candidate. I’m for drafting Nelson after a trade back, that’s my #1 path that I see right now, but if we don’t take him, take Chubb. Then a round 2 RB, power back specifically or even Sony Michel, I like him.
Basically this year we should have a few better things than in recent years:
1) better coaching staff
2)1st round high pick so...
2a) talented edge rusher
2b) talented running back
2c) talented guard
3) better offensive line overall
4) more uniform defense since they all have 1 yr experience with each other
5) Andrew Luck at QB
Therefore there is no reason we shouldn’t have a winning season, unless mistakes are made or there are setbacks. I’m fairly optimistic.
