I’m not sure if there are positions where they got worse, but there are some that are “wait and see”. All I can think of as to Clay is him not making an effort on what would have been a game winning touchdown, even I know that when your QB is scrambling receivers are supposed to come back to him. Not sure they are worse at TE, we shall see. So correct me if I’m wrong and I’m sure you will, but isn’t Lotulelei’s job unglamorous? Isn’t he supposed to keep blockers occupied? Meaning keep guys off Edmunds. Kyle Williams will be missed for a lot of reasons, but we don’t know what Ed Oliver brings, but it’s not like the position wasn’t addressed.
As to the OL, if all they did was add Morse they would have to be better, but that isn’t all they did. RB? Was McCoy’s slide a result of age or bad OL? Is Gore better than Ivory? What does Yeldon bring? Can Singletary play against this level of competition? We shall see, but sure feels better than last year. WR? It could not possibly be worse than last year. I could keep going, but you get my drift.
