You can look at this glass half empty of glass half full.
Half empty. The o-line can't protect Cam and wasn't properly address in the off season like I wanted. Cam's body is breaking down, and we have poop backups. Greg's body is breaking down. We don't have a dominant DT like Kris Jenkins, and we don't have dominant DE like Peppers, so 4-3 won't be great. We don't have a dominant NT like Vince Wilfork, so 3-4 won't be great. Our secondary lacks a Josh Norman type DB who will make big play INTS and pass breakups. Our passing game might be spooky bad, like no complete deep passes for multi-game stretches. We face the Saints (SB contender), Falcons (solid team), and the much improved Bucs. Yikes.
Half full. We have speed on offense, and speed kills. CMC's burst is nothing short of elite, and teams will have to scheme their defense to contain him. Moore and Samuel are play-makers, and add to that combo the intelligent and extremely talented Greg Olsen and you have enough weapons on offense to do well. Cam might just have a healthy season, and if he does, then the talent is there to win. The o-line just needs some time to gel as the season moves along, but the talent is in place. The d-line looks solid on paper, and our secondary should do better than last season with more pressure being applied from Burns and company.
I can be negative or positive.
