Are there some challenges, with regards to the offensive line - sure.

But we have a very good starting defense with some decent rotational depth at all positions...

We may very well have the best 3 WR set now in the NFL...

The obvious concerns are the offensive guards where I've been really disappointed in Lelito who I still have high hopes and I'd add Tight End to real concerns...

The defense has been so bad for seemingly so long, that mediocre would be embraced; but this defense by season's end will be more than mediocre - they can be special and I believe that.

Now if we could get rid of the albatross and his contract, we could really see this humble kid do some great things...
