Makes no sense.
As for the OP I kinda do think Martin is going to have to come a long way for us to be as good as we hope. To be honest I would not be surprised if Dallas Thomas wins that job. The rest of the OL is above average as a group. They are not the road graders that TS wanted but they are the type of players this system needs. LT still worries me also, but I think it won't be the type of problem we can't overcome.
The OP says we were going to be bad because of the OL, then you say we are going to win 8 or 9 games. I think we are going to be pretty good, but I can't see us winning more than 9 games myself, 10 at the MOST. I would be happy with a 9 win season and a team that is headed in the right direction.
