No Dwyer would be a surprise considering when Bell went down, I figured him to be in line to start. Maybe I was just off in my expectations. At this point, I don't know what to think. Sadly, I think Felix is probably the "best weapon" they currently have available at tailback. Pretty sad considering he was on somebody else's roster a few weeks ago. Hope Bell is a fast healer.
Moye over Brown? Brown seems to be more athletic to me with greater upside. Not discounting what Moye has shown, I just think that people are quick to jump on that wagon because we've seen a lot of him in the last two preseason games.
Something I didn't expect? Depth at DL. Lotta interesting prospects there. I'd be interested to see what Arnfelt could do in games that count.
Biggest worry? The back seven on defense. IMO, this LB corp is the weakest starting group that I can remember with marginal depth. We'll see if they can improve on their ability to get to/pressure the QB from last year. My gut tells me they won't. Starting secondary is fine, but quality depth at corner is a concern. An injury to either Taylor or Allen and they're royally fucked.
Frankly, the only way I think they have a chance at being a top 10 defense is if everybody stays healthy. Even then, it'll take some Comeback Player of the Year type performances from the likes of #43 and #56 to get them into that category.
I have a feeling that this team will have to average in the mid to upper 20s if they're going to make the playoffs. Don't see them holding teams in the teens on average like in years past.
