For this team to be a real contender how much better does the defense have to be?
I expect a big change in both those numbers for 2018. To get to top ten in yards 25 less yard per game.
To get to top ten in points allowed it is around four points a game less.
How do they have to go to be a real contender? Is top ten a pipe dream?
Can a new DC with quite a few new coaches and IMO a very talented group bring this team to a top ten level?
I say they can and should get there. With that offense and a top ten defense, that is a real contender.
