2016 Outlook: Please let us know the keys about your team on offense, defense and special teams. What are your keys to having a successful year?
Offense: Our key is quarterback play is real important. We’re very quarterback driven system. We have to find away to distribute the football and be balance. Obviously we have a great talent in D’Andre Swift and people are going to want to take him away in games. We need some of our other players to step up and excel and become weapons in their own right.
Defense: Our key starts with the are ability to stop the run. The question always becomes how many men do you need to commit to stop the run and the less guys I need to commit to stop the run the better we are going to be.
