Problem is we were weak on offense before, and now it is worse.
How so? We got weaker after adding Mike Wallace, and Charles Clay having a break out season? There is no indications that I see that has the arrow pointing down for the offense.
Depends really how you break it out. We were ranked 27th in 2012 for points scored (288) and 26th in 2013 (317)
While adding Wallace helped as well as RT taking a step forward, our passing game did get better. However, we had 1802 yard rushing in 2012, avg of 4.1 and 15 TD's.
2013 we dropped to 1440 while maintaining the 4.1 avg, yet only 8 TD's.
Now add in the sacks (35 in 2012 vs 58 in 2013), hurries and pressures. And obviously just remember how bad our o-line was and I would say we are not any better than 2012 on offense, really seems worse to me. Or at the best traded one for the other and stayed the same.
The defense took the exact same steps backwards as well, allowed 317 points in 2012, and 335 in 2013 dropping from the 7th to 8th spot overall.
I maintain my same feeling as last year, we are able to hold teams to reasonable scoring on defense. We need to figure out how to score on offense.
And it pertains to the topic because it is the exact reason I was not happy with the Dion pick last year. Nothing against him, I imagine he can be great. Just for the position this team was in, and is in, I feel they need to address the offense. Mainly the oline that has been an issue for a couple years now.
