2017 Offensive Outlook: The key for this year offensively will be how quickly the offensive line comes together as a unit. We are also starting to get explosive skill position players and we need to get the ball in their hands in space.

2017 Defensive Outlook: Toward the end of last season, we were playing fast on defense. We need to raise the speed bar another notch defensively to create and capitalize on more turnovers.

2017 Special Teams Outlook: With the depth and speed that is starting to emerge, our special teams will be expected to change field position and change the tempo of games. Our punter/kicker Nate Maransky has the ability to drastically change field position when we cover kicks and punts correctly.

    For the sake of the kids, hopefully Manello can improve on his career sub-500 record. He seems to have the horses to do it this year. Go Mounts!
