We will be improved because it is the second year for a very raw quarterback and the second year in a new offensive scheme. The offensive line will be as good in the run game or better and I suspect with some adjustments to the passing game that the pass protection will be as well. We have the horses to fill Gilislee's spot, even if we don't replace his entire productivity. The only real spot for concern is receiver, which really held us back last year. Dunbar is solid, but unspectacular. The combination of Burton, Taylor, and Thompson fill fill the Reed-Hines roles. The biggest question is whether or not we can find a playmaker or two at receiver, someone who can make something happen with the ball in his hands on a short route or get off a jam and beat his man deep or into his break. Robinson is probably the best bet. Andrades and Pittman are decent, but I don't see either as explosive. Maybe Purifoy will prove me wrong, but I suspect his greater upside is at corner, not receiver, and he finds his way back there.
Wow. I really thought that there was more imagination on this board than there is...
"I can shoot threes now. I can finesse you. I can dunk on you. I can guard anything, and I'm rebounding better. When I block shots I catch the ball. I can post you up with my back to the basket and hit you with a post move. Or I can face you up and use my quickness to blow by you." - Chris Walker
