Everybody has two bye weeks next year. Just the way the Saturdays happen to fall.

Remember we get Jordan Hall back next year as a medical redshirt even though he never suffered an injury that required reconstuctive surgery. He will be a huge bonus next year. The offense will be sooooooo much better with another year of learning the offense. Love where we are headed!

I was just about to bring that up.

Hyde and Hall with Braxton giving them the ball is going to be FUN to watch.

The best thing about going into the off-season like we are, our guys SHOULD (should) be hungry. Especially with the talent we have.

Our WRs get older, our line gets older, we have a great backfield. We need to fix the defense, but if Hankins returns, we are #1-#2 overall.

It will be interesting to see how Hall fits in the offense next year. Philly Brown has a stranglehold on the hybrid role and Hyde has earned a ton of carries.

I don't think the defense will be that good next year honestly. I just don't see us having the depth or experience and talent at linebacker. I'm not worried about the d-line and the secondary will be good if Roby returns, if not then its a big question mark.

The offense has the possibility of being scary good. The biggest thing that concerns me though is that as the season wore on I fell like the offense fell off when I would've expected it to improve. Braxton has to take the next step for this offense to reach its full potential.

I like how quickly Hall hits the hole.

He will get carries, an Hyde will too. We need to be more careful with Braxton's attempts next year.

That's paramount, his health.

Braxton has to be a better thrower. He needs to throw to set up the run, not the other way around.

It's there. Hell, Noah Spence could play LB. Curtis Grant will have to step up though. Shazier is solid most of the time. And we get two really good freshman CBs, one top five-ish.

We will be serviceable on defense.

Do we get rid of Fickell?

No doubt. But I really think his inconsistency throwing was to do with learning what to do when. He can react naturally as a runner, he needs to learn to throw consistently. He has the ability to throw really good balls, we've seen them this year.

No. He just needs to stop being a tard and playing the Heacock Pussy Zone defense.

The offense is designed to run to set up the pass brah.

I think Urban did what he had to do, but he'd rather throw and spread the field.

You really think Braxton can spread it around 30 times a game?

Urban's offenses are notoriously swayed towards the run. Even the Tebow / Percy days. I never understood why people assumed the offense would become an air attack with his hire.

No, he just needs to be de-Tresselized. Once Meyer took a more hands on approach midway through the season, the defense got better. Once Fickell adapts to Meyer's philosophy he will be fine. I think Mike Vrabel as an assitant to Fickell will help him a bunch over time.

Absolutely. Why couldn't he? The offense as a whole needs to progress though I feel like which would help that.
