I’m not sure they will get better. We have questions at every single level of the defense. Relying on guys Going into a contract season may help motivate. Rivers theoretically should be able to turn TOP into a strength. Let’s hope he isn’t washed up and our receivers stay healthy and develop more. Lots and lots of questions on this team. Wouldn’t surprise me a bit to see them ranked close to the same but possibly create more turnovers And give up fewer points a game bc the opposing offense gets less opportunities. Both are improvements where it matters.
Colts defense should be much improved this year. Especially when Buckner gets into his groove, and Blackmon comes back healthy. Blackmon will give Eberflus an extra chess piece in the secondary to move around.
I also love our LB core and could see another big step taken by Okereke this year.
ESPN had Game 7 of the 2016 WS on earlier. What made this fun to watch again is they had Kris Bryant, Anthony Rizzo, and Joe Maddon on live talking about the game. I am happy the Cubs just won after being down 3-1 in the series. Bryant says he can't wait for the season to start up again. Maddon said that will always be the greatest team he ever managed. Bryant said once the team fell behind 3-1 and everyone in the media said the series was over the team played loose the rest of the games. Strange but that team was special and figured at that point all the pressure was on the Indians to close them out.
