Can, and/or is it probable, we have a better OL in 2017?

RBs? (and not just because our OL may be better)

QB? Is it reasonable to hope we have better QB play in '17? Is QB play that is not a total downgrade from '16 and Kaaya the bar?

Receivers? (I am almost certain our receivers will be better in '17, this is NOT our problem)

Playcalling? Are the CMR fans right? He just needed time to get the rust out, and needed more of "his" players, before his offensive playcalling talent emerges? (I wont even opine here, as I want to hear what y'all have to say)

Can/will our offense in totality be as "good" as 2016?

Can/will our offense in 2017 be better?

Assuming an even better D in 2017, I still say our offense will have to be as good as 2016 if we are to win 8 games.
It will have to be better, if we are to compete for a Coastal title.

So.......whats the poop?

RBs? (and not just because our OL may be better) yes if healthy

QB? Is it reasonable to hope we have better QB play in '17? Is QB play that is not a total downgrade from '16 and Kaaya the bar? it's always reasonable to hope for something, but nobody has any clue what we'll have at this point

Receivers? (I am almost certain our receivers will be better in '17, this is NOT our problem)

Playcalling? Are the CMR fans right? He just needed time to get the rust out, and needed more of "his" players, before his offensive playcalling talent emerges? (I wont even opine here, as I want to hear what y'all have to say) he's shown he's capable of utilizing what he has or completely failing to take into account his player's limitations. it's anybody's guess which way he'll go or if he'll go one way consistently

Can/will our offense in totality be as "good" as 2016? Can? obviously. Will? No way to tell.

Can/will our offense in 2017 be better? See above

Assuming an even better D in 2017, I still say our offense will have to be as good as 2016 if we are to win 8 games.

So.......whats the poop?

Weak sauce. This team wins 10 games easy, but realistically with our talent and schedule, I'd say there is a strong possibility we could legitimately run the table and go 12-0. This is the best canes team we've had in over 10 years

Because we already lost to Free Shoes. Fuente already proved he's light years ahead of CMR, and thrashed us with a program in decline in '16.

Default Fedora had a rebuilding year in '16, did much better than us, will have to be better in '17, and has us at NC.

ND can't be near as awful as they were in '16 and the creep will be coaching for his life in '17 while we have a coach for life who just has to say "Aw shucks, can't win 'em all" to keep his job.

That means we have to avoid a loss to the Pitt , GTs and such just to secure 3rd in the Coastal again.

Maybe we upset UNC or VT. Still means we have 2 ACC losses and undoubtedly lose any tie breaker, IF we sweep the rest of our opponents.

Anyway, what if we have no QB? (Not a bad question) If our QB play is worse than Kaaya, we could lose 6 games.


I wanted to hear that our offense will be better, because it has to be, if we are to compete for the awful Coastal.

Until y'all convince me, I'm all "We have no QB! We have no Rbs! We have no OC! Our pet's HEADS are falling off!" et al

And its not trolling. This "Easy" schedule is not as easy as last season, when we **** our pants. Unless our offense is better, we are fin for '17.
