Think our defense should return to being best in the conference. Despite replacing the entire D of 2018 and having holes at some spots we still finished 3rd in conference on D behind Utah/Oregon. Really only Oregon game did the D cost us, the others were due to our offense.
Offense is in total rebuild mode with losing 3 OL, QB, possibly RB, 2 WR’s(they suck but played a ton of snaps) and TE. It’s actually good timing for a new OC as we are going to be so green on offense anyways.
This year we needed the offense to carry the defense and that just wasn’t going to happen with Petersen’s terrible offense. In 2020 the defense will need to carry the offense which I think bolds well given Lake as the head coach and Kwiatkowski as DC.
