2022 Offensive Outlook: “Our offense needs to be more efficient than last year establishing the line of scrimmage to get the run game going. The passing game will also need to be better this year starting with better chemistry being built this offseason.”

2022 Defensive Outlook: “The defense needs to focus on stopping the run first this year in order to be successful. We had a lot of guys rotate defensively last year which should help our experience and leadership on the field. Forcing turnovers will be another key to our defense that we need to do more of this year.”

2022 Special Teams Outlook: “The coverage on both kickoffs and punts will be key in order to win us field position. Our return game needs to field kicks and punts cleaner to give coverage teams less time to corral them.”
