I have to say I was dead wrong on this year's squad. I didn't predict more than a handful of changes, but the unit has been reshaped drastically from last year.

This must just be opening day starters. I don't see Ayers, Hamilton, etc. listed from last year. Regardless a ton more changes than I thought.

This might be Tomlin's most talented team.

Yes, I'm sure there are still changes to come.

Traded for JJ Wilcox, safety, from TB, who started 38 games for Dallas in four years.

Seems like the right bullets are in the gun. If Tomlin can steady his aim, rather than flap his gums, and we keep the injury bug at bay this season and team shows real promise.

I fear we are a bit weak up the middle on D. Timmons will be a loss but the safety position and Shazier's injury history are of more concern.

We cut Dangerfield? No RESPECT!  Pi_bigsmile

Kidding aside, I agree, at least somewhat. He had a pretty good season and I recall him making at least 1 INT. That said, he wasn't playing against starting talent for the most part and his spot was probably more dependent on special team play.
