Positives - Watt and Smith can hold their own. The corners are solid with KJ and JJ. And Manning is strong.
Negatives - Mitchell at NG in a 3/4. Cushing's actual recovery. Reed, Mercilus and Sharpton as the rest of the LB corps. Replacing Quin.
Double team Watt and average teams will be able to run against us.
Really?! JJ was doubled, tripled, chipped and schemed against all season and was still the DPOY as well as being in the conversation as overall POY. So, now all the opposition has to do is double team him for "average teams" to run against us?
Where is your logic here? I'm not seeing it.
