OFF THE CUFF
So many more questions than last year
It was striking how much there was to get caught up on this year compared to last year or the year before. Sure, there was a right tackle battle between Justin Britt and Michael Bowie last year, and Kevin Williams was a new face, but most of the depth chart was pretty predictable. I spent almost three-quarters of the practice trying to get on top of the depth chart at almost every position on the roster. Which linebacker spot was Eric Pinkins playing? Who are the top three receivers? What do the nickel packages look like? I will cover all that and more in these notes, but I have a lot more work to do tomorrow and Sunday. This feels far more like a new team than the 2014 squad.
