Bit of love for DQ as we approach the mid point of his 2nd year in charge of the team i'll post a throwback to the starters in the last game of Mike Smith's era:

The defense was listed as Nickel so I have done the same, we have 1 starter from that time on defense (albeit Alford was on IR), and it was only the season before last!

It really is amazing what he's done with this team in just 2 offseasons. We are notably faster, younger and better on both sides of the ball. 

It's so impressive, I love where this team is heading and most importantly I love our head coach.

I agree and he's far from finished. I'm sure at the end of this season there are at least 4 to 5 players that won't be on this roster next season. IMO the positions we really need to focus on this coming offseason are DE, DT, FS, OG, & CB.

Absolutely, I would add WR to that list as well, although our group this year is definitely an improvement

Yeah our WR group has looked good this year thus far. Also remember Fuller is injured so he could be factor next season also but it won't hurt to bring in some more WRs for some healthy competition.
