I was just going through the numbers from last year and I was actually shocked how good our offense and special teams actually are, though it was hidden by Hays and reshuffling most of the time. The best thing is, all the guys I'll be mentioning are returning next year. The big things I found out were:
1. 5 of our top 6 receivers all averaged over 14 yards per reception. So, if we can get a solid QB who balances between the run and the pass and dishes it out efficiently, our receivers can definitely make plays and get yardage afterwards.
2. Sean Sellwood (Yeah, the PUNTER) was 2/2 on passes, averaging 33 yards per pass and his one run attempt went for 18 yards. Also, he averaged 45 yards per punt this season, so we know he can kick. With him and Coleman Peterson returning next year, I wouldn't be surprised to see another few trick plays and a great special teams.
3. The RBs behind JW4: Seriously, I know Langy didn't live up to all of the hype, but the kid had a respectable 5.4 yards/carry as a true freshman and in my opinion benefited from a year under JW4. And the running plays involving Dunn and Dres resulted in 11.5 to 12 yard gains on average.
4. The returning members of our secondary account for 14 INT, 12 FF, and countless other stats.
So, I think we should actually be able to do pretty well next year, but please tell me what y'all think always happy to hear different opinions on the matter.
