The Cupboard is no Longer Barren

It feels like this franchise has FINALLY hit a minimum level of competency.  There's a realistic chance that we're now set at the 3 biggest positions (QB, LT and Edge).  We have very little depth in many areas but at least we can field a team that doesn't have glaring holes (e.g. horrible OL, crap weapinzz, horrific defense).

OFFENSE:

OL: There are obviously questions about Becton but he still has high-ceiling potential.  AVT, Laken, Fant and McGovern are above average.

WR: We've got 2 "hotshot" WRs in Eli Moore and Garrett Wilson along with 2 solid guys in Corey Davis and Berrios.

TE: We've got 2 NFL-level TEs.  They're not great but at least we're no longer a complete embarrassment at the position.

QB: Zach was trending up at the end of last year.  Now we've added competency around him to at least see what we've got with him.  Year 2 will hopefully be a big jump.  Flacco is the apple of our HC's eye anyway.  And our 3rd stringer is a HOFer.

DEFENSE:

DL: We finally have an Edge! 

LB: We badly need another one to pair with Mosley but that will likely be addressed in the draft

CB: Sauce, DJ Reed, Bryce Hall, Echols.  This looks like a great unit.  We have a potential star along with talent and depth

S: We definitely need an upgrade here but will probably get one in this draft, or even in FA.  And if you're going to be weak at a position on defense, this is one you can probably deal with.

 

Things are looking up!

I think Berrios is going to be better this year (more consistently productive). Took him a few years but he's a hard worker and smart, and it seems to be paying off finally.

As was the case prior to the draft, the biggest thing for this team, and the success of JD/Saleh, will be injuries.

Sure we’ll have our SOJ moments, but if this team is even remotely healthy compared to the past few years, no reason we can’t be in the hunt (barring  any Zachtastrophes)

It's probably not ready to compete for the playoffs, but there's no reason why we should be picking in the Top 5 yet again barring Zach Wilson blowing chunks. Every year it feels like real progress is being made to turn the team around at the bare minimum.

Don't forget he's playing with his new boyfriend who's feeding him the balls.

There were a few games down the stretch that were basically all them on offense so let's ******* go!

The secondary has gone from a landfill to arguably the strongest unit on the team in one offseason.

We are talented and deep.  Just need the kids to keep working hard and the winning will come.
