4 Issues facing AFC West teams

Tags: , , , , ,



  AFC West
4 DV drafted 2 RBS & 2 WRS. Is that enough to fix the O?
3 The D got some pass rush by taking Edge rusher Bradley Chubb. Will they understand how to use him most effectively?
2 The D was solid except in ppg. Lots of that was due to O turnovers. Can a better O help the D get better?
1 DV signed Case Keenum to big contract. Will that solve the QB issues for DV?
4 RB Melvin Gordon scored 12 TD & had 1000 rushing yards. Can he do that again this season?
3 TE Hunter Henry was lost for 18 with an ACL tear & released Antonio Gates. Can the TE position contribute to playoffs?
2 The 1st 4 picks were on D. 2 were Safeties. Pass Rush is solid. Did LC do enough on D to get into the playoffs?
1 Q Philip Rivers was outstanding last yr after leading in picks in 16. Can he duplicate last year’s results this season?
4 Can the OL stay healthy in 2018?
3 The OL was hurt but the Run gm was solid. Can R Kareem Hunt duplicate his 17 season?
2 The D has aged out & lost players due to cap issues. Can KC D recover enough to get the team back to the playoffs?
1 KC took a BIG risk in trading Smith & making Patrick Mahomes the QB. Will that work out for more than 10 wins?
4 OK drafted 2 OT. Did they do enough to fix a VERY over rated OL?
3 The WR group couldn’t catch the ball. OK got FA Jordy Nelson & drafted Marcell Ateman. Is that enough?
2 The Pass D under preformed badly last yr. Can the new staff get the DBS to play better?
1 Q Derek Carr had a bad season last yr. Can he recover this year to get OK into the playoffs?

Colts Stadium

  AFC South
4 Frank Gore was well past his “use by”date & was cut. Can one of the worst OL’s get the run game going again?
3 Can the rebuilt WR group give the O some pop?
2 IN used 4 draft picks on D. Can the 3rd worst D get off the field often enough to help the team?
1 No Luck last year at all & he is not throwing the ball yet. Will Andrew Luck be able to play this year?
4 JK Cut WR Herns & TE Lewis. Can the receivers group recover from those losses?

1 Is Blake Bortles the real deal & franchise QB or not?
4 Can TE C.J. Fiedorowicz play this year with 3 concussions last year?
3 J. J. Watt suffered a tibial plateau fracture. He is the key to the D. Will he be able to play like he did in 17 prior to J?
2 The Run game was a huge disappointment. The didn’t draft or sign a RB. Can R Lamar Miller revive the run game?
1 Can a really bad OL keep Q Deshaun Watson healthy?
4 TN cut R DeMarco Murray. In 3 starts Derrick Henry had 1 good gm. Can RB Dion Lewis get the run gm going?
3 Can CB Malcom Butler solve the passing yardage the D gave up last year?
2 The D was middle of the road last season. TN traded up to get ILB Evans & OB Landry. Did they do enough to get to PO?
1 Q Marcus Mariota had a down season last yr. Can he get back to 26 to 30 TD passes this season?
