2021 Offensive Outlook: We have a lot of experience returning on the offensive side of the ball and look to be able to put points on the board. We have some position battles along the offensive line and at some skill positions that will play out throughout the pre-season. If we can play consistently up front and win the majority of snaps up front we should be in good shape.

2021 Defensive Outlook: We need to limit teams much more than we have in the past. We have to run to the football, know our assignments and execute them at a high level. We will be challenged by a lot of good offenses and will have to rise to the challenge of stopping our opponents and not just trying to outscore them.

2021 Special Teams Outlook: We have to replace our kicker and our punter. It will be how quickly we find consistency in the kicking game that will determine how well we can play on special teams.
