Time for optimism to reign supreme. At least we rebuilt the offensive line this year, which, let's be honest, was in shambles going into last season. It is now solid. Getting Tyson Pencer healthy and into the mix won't hurt things either. Special teams also appears to be solid, for the most part.
We have a high-end tailback (Chad Simpson), an ultra-high-end receiver (Chris Matthews), to go along with a quickly developing MLB (Henoc Muamba) and support (Marcellus Bowman & Brandon Stewart). If we can solidify the D-line which already has two strong pieces (Bryant Turner and Alex Hall), and the secondary finds its game again (not that crazy, with Jovon Johnson, Jonathan Hefney and Alex Suber back there) we should be in the thick of things with average quarterbacking. That said, quarterback play is the elephant in the room, and there are clearly no quick fixes out there, but I cannot imagine that we go to camp next year with Buck as the first option. The guy is a warrior, but sadly, he's unreliable as the starting pivot. I suppose if we are going to air lift in a pivot, Mike Reilly makes the most sense, out of all available options. He has some polish to his game, but the sample size is really small.
*raises one* To the off-season! Cheers.
