2. More emphasis on the passing game - the Texans ran a ton of draws and run plays on 3rd and 4th and long situations. They were forced to do so often because the defense was ravenged by injuries. I don't see us running nearly as often in those "long" situations this season.

Also, with an ever improving line, some offensive stability, and depth everywhere, I think we can let lose a bit more. I expect Hollings to get about 400-500 yards rushing and D.D. to only have around 1,200 when it is all over.

I like your Reasons TheOgre! I think they should do more screen passes to DD. When the Patriots where in town they ran alot of screens for Kevin Fualk he gained alot of yards. DD is a better running back than KF! Get DD in the open in 1 on 1 situtations with DB's while staying away from the big D line men He can last longer! Bring on the Training Camp!!!!
PATS are Reloading! ;-)

Hoping the o-line is strong, healthy and up to big challenges this year ...
because I'm looking forward to seeing DD, AJ and DC shine.
