QB - don’t know until Stafford proves on the field that his back is 100% healed. Daniel is a better backup though.
RB - No better. Maybe worse. McKissick was the only good receiving back on the team. KJ is a walking injury report and I can’t put too much faith in Bo after a few meaningless games. We are not better by any means at this position.
TE - Same or worse. Lost a TE from a very weak group. Maybe TJH comes back and plays at a hall of fame level. Otherwise that was a wasted pick. James was also a terrible signing. He does nothing well.
WR - Same 3 guys as last year. No better. No worse.
O-Line - Worse. Lost our 2nd best lineman. Replaced our RT with a backup. Might end up being a slight upgrade to Wagner if we hit the lottery, but losing GG hurts. Decker is still a 1st round pick that plays like a 4th rounder and shouldn’t get another contract here.
D-line - Lost Snacks and AR on a line that was awful. Filled Snacks’ spot we hope. Not an upgrade by any means. DE is still anemic. Flowers is a 5MM player making 18MM. The other side is empty. Our pass rush is still no better and it sucked bad last year.
LB - Got rid of our best LB and replaced him with a guy who we hope is a tick better. Ignored the 2 other LBs who were actually the real weaknesses. Davis was a terrible pick who plays like a 6th round pick. Should not get another contract here. Tavai could carve out a role, but he’s slow AF. No better. Wash.
Secondary - Safety position is a wash from mid season last year. CB group is slightly worse. No significant upgrade. Plus we ignored fixing our pass rush, so good like to these guys.
Special teams - it was a shit show. We promoted the guy who coached the shit show. Therefore, expect more shit show.
If our team was a 2.5 out of 10 team last year, I would say we are currently a 2.7 team out of 10 now. A lot of teams got significantly better this week. We did not and we were terrible.
