Well, we already check two of those boxes last year. We were 7th rushing, and 7th against the run. Rivers, even with his horrible OL, was 6th in passing. So that's a realistic 3 out of 4 already......
So the pass D is the only outlier.... I said we need to be top 15 vs the pass. We were 23rd last year and had almost zero pass rush and a good amount of injury to our DBs. In 2018, we were only one off at 16th and didn't have the best pass rush either. We've added Buckner, so that should buy us a couple ticks up. If we have good health, Hooker returns to form, and Rhodes rebounds, top 15 is not so crazy.
Very doable IMO
It’s all about explosive plays. That was basically the stated offseason goal of the offense...more explosive plays. They don’t want to grind out games with TOP. That’s not to say they won’t be run heavy with a lead at times...but they are going to try to put points on the board often.
