For me it comes down to:
Will we be aggressive and attempt to improve the team or will we stand pat?
Unfortunately I think we'll stand pat. You pointed out how the Ravens's were just another team three weeks into the season last year. But they also identified a problem and corrected it with a major move ( firing their offensive coordinator).
We can't even work up the gumption to fire our special teams coach and will still probably be trotting Newton out there in week 16 after wasting another year of Andre Johnson.
