Reason for optimism
Gute seems to have nailed 3 of 4 big free agents. The Smiths look to be a definite upgrade over Perry and Matthews. Consistent pressure rushing 4 and good eggs run defense should make this defense much better than last year against any QB. Even if you ignore the int as something a good QB wouldn't do, Amos looks to be a much more reliable safety than anyone that the Packers had last year.
