To be fair, it's a pretty low bar.
I think it is both talent and number of guys b/c he specifically says:Yea, me too, we read too much into his coach speak.
I hear you, LCE. I'm going to withhold judgment until Fall camp. Because unless a miracle happens over the next 5 months, some of our starters from last year should have no business rolling with the 1s when we open against Bama.I'll believe it when I see it...
I don't think for one second any of the vets are in contention to lose their jobs, I think that's just a notion that they put out their to make it seem like there's a real competition taking place, but come September majority of the starters from last year will be starting this year too.
Not worried about the offense, we'll have at least one new WR & one or two OL shifts to the starting lineup.
But on Defense, they're replacing Blades with Stevenson, moving McCloud to DE which will open up a WLB spot & basically keeping the rest of the lineup the same. So, we'll have one new starting DE, one new rotational DE & McCloud, then Flagg will probably be the Mike LB & I'm betting they keep BJ Jennings as a the 2nd LB, I doubt they put Keontra at Will backer or even give TAC/Huff etc a real shot...
I wanna believe that they're not gonna play favorites deferring to their guys, but I'm just skeptical. I've heard this record too many times before, we'll see how things look after the 2nd scrimmage of Fall camp come August.
