Unlikely
Posted: Jun 30, 2014 4:39 PM
 

Tahj had much more talent/experience to work with (MUCH). Spare me the "x freshman" is going to set all the records in the world speech. Highly unlikely. Peake and Williams MUST improve and make plays consistently, as well as block to reach the level we have had recently. Our RB's are serviceable but unless Gallman is the real deal (and he very well may be but no one has seen him), this is a big drop off from the past three years (watch video of AE and Hotrod picking up blitzes - it is impressive).

Stout is a very accurate passer but does not possess a strong arm. This will hurt his ability to make the big/key throw as often at Boyd. He is a very heady guy (or so it seems) and I don think he will make the right reads but....

Will he have an OL that allows him to stand upright? This OL is as iffy as we have had in a long time. Also, unless these guys exceed everyone's expectations, out running game will suffer, which effects the passing game.

I expect the offense to take a noticeable step back this year - we simply lost too much talent / experience to overcome some level of drop-off. I do think we will move the ball but scoring will likely tail off 20% or so. I am hopeful someone will emerge as a tremendous red-zone weapon but I just don't see it happening.

Future looks very bright but I think we need to be realistic about this year, especially Stout. He is not as gifted as Tajh and is working with less bullets so increased production at the QB spot is dubious in the extreme.

I do think our defense could be significantly better so our overall record/abilities may be about the same.
