It's tough to answer when we don't know the direction of the team. I think Rock has allot of potential, but maybe not in the current defensive system.
I think Hines could be as good as Ekeler on the Chargers. But not with the current QB and how the offense is run.
Yeah...and when Luck wasn't playing well...they were 1-5 to start the season. So outside of that 10-1 stretch when Luck started playing like an MVP again (and the team gelled a bit)...the overall record has been something like 12-27 over the past three years...and even with that stretch...it's still just 22-28...which is a 7 win team on average.
The roster has definitely gotten better though...but they still need talent at a few position and they REALLY need a good QB to make the passing game work again.
