The one thing that is predictable is that the general consensus in terms of fans/media is almost always wrong, especially in terms of specifics. There was not a big concern last year about the OLine. The general thought was they'll plug somebody in between All-Pro Tyron and Frederick and have minimal issues, especially once they signed a veteran backup OT. LB on the other hand was a big concern because it had been a disaster in 2017 with Lee and Hitchens both getting injured and Jaylon looking terrible for much of the season. There was concern at WR and that proved to be an issue early in the season but ended up being a high point with Cooper added and Gallup progressing quite well in the 2nd half. The group-think for the Rams game was the Rams passing offense and the Cowboys running game being the big problems for each defense. It turned out the opposite. The worst case is a good but not great season. With a losing season, they'll start planning on a Garrett replacement early. With a good not great season Garrett might stay and even if fired, they might not be prepared to get the best replacement. My concerns: 1. Distractions. Either player contract issues or too much media focus on Moore as OC and Garrett with no contract extension. 2. OT. If Tyron has a season ending injury in training camp, they might as well just focus in getting a top 10 pick in 2020 because they're not winning by just re-signing Fleming. 3. Offensive play execution. I'm confident Moore can design and call plays as well as Linehan or better; however, more complicated plays require more practice reps to perfect. Offensive execution has not been a strength with Garret as the HC. Only the OLine execution when Bill Callahan was the OL coach was elite. They do have smarter players with Cooper/Gallup over the years with Dez/TWill. Getting Frederick back is huge. He's the smartest guy on the team. Looney's individual play was good-enough but they really really missed Frederick's game knowledge and leadership. 4. DT. Other teams will copy what the Rams did to the Cowboys DL if they don't make DL scheme adjustments and/or add more talent. 5. Not really a worry per se, but what happens at DC? The media will make it a distraction if Kris Richard is NOT promoted to DC. I don't think Richard can do much about the DL problems that came up in the Rams game if he is not the DC.
