Who knows what will happen...if everything goes well the sky is the limit...but we are talking about the O-line being great and injury free, Keyshawn really making a difference, Julius Jones having a really good rookie year, QC really improving, Antonio Bryant returning to the playmaking abilities he flashed his rookie year, Wiley making a difference in the pass rush, Hunter stepping up and making a difference or another CB doing that, our Punter (whoever it winds up being) doing a good job, the Special teams as a whole doing a better job blocking returns.
Just so many things that could either go great or bad that could sway this team either way.
Agree totally...one key to note is that we have everyone back on the O-line, plus a healthy Al Johnson, Jacob Rogers, and Peterman. Will they all be starting? Not sure, but if they are it's because they beat out Lehr, Vollers, Tucker, and Gurode...who I imagine will not want to give up their spots without a fight, and be even more improved with a year under their belt with BP. I personally think out O-line will be stronger then last year. LA will either be better and in better shape this year, OR it will be Peterman....don't think there is anything inbetween for LA.
Now look at the depth we have on the O-line...if someone is not stepping up...they can and may be replaced ASAP.
LT Adams, Collins, Vollers
LG LA, Peterman, maybe Tucker
C Johnson, Lehr, Din.....
RG Gurode, Peterman
RT Rogers, Vollers, Tucker
Walters and the rest....
