Like I said, the bulk of the team will be the same. And it remains to be seen if another year of experience, in the weight room, in training camp etc. will make a difference anyway. Somebody once told me that four years of experience don't mean anything if it's the same year's worth of experience that is just repeated four times. There will be some face changes -- there always are on every team. But if you think there is going to be a huge overhaul to the point where this squad "is not the same team" then I think you will be sadly mistaken.
