2021 Offensive Outlook: In 2021 the keys to our offense will be establishing the run game and being efficient passing the ball. There are many new faces on the offense this year but if we can do those things we should be able to have a solid season offensively.

2021 Defensive Outlook: Defensively, our front 7 needs to be solid against the run like last year while the secondary needs to be better in coverage as well as run fits. As a whole, we expect to have a defense that flies to the ball on every play.

2021 Special Teams Outlook: We will be breaking in a new punter and kicker this year so it is important they are able to be effective in those spots.
