Although its a year later than we would have hoped, I see big promise that our OL may finally step up and be at minimum, aside from 2016,  the second best OL Ryan has ever had.  I felt strongly the day we drafted him that Hennessy was going to win the starting LG spot which apparently was announced today. Hennessy, Mack and Lindstrom are outstanding, mobile, aggressive, and highly intelligent interior OL for our ZBS, and the idea of having Gurley at RB sort of blows my mind if hes got good blocking in front of him.

The only question mark at this point to me  is McGary's pass protection. Even if McGary can just be at minimum average in pass protection this year our OL could end up being better than 2016.

And you get Matt Ryan protection and a good running game and he will eviscerate defenses. Our defense was 26th in NFL in 2016, that also has a chance to be much better. Won't know until regular season for sure though.

It’s gonna be a big problem for teams if Ridley takes that leap and team can’t just blanket JJ all game. Add in the progression of Gage and Hurst...oh boy!

The season may lie in the turbulent hands of Dirk Koetter.  I am so hoping he is up to the task

A BIG part of the 2016 line success was no injuries, and Shanny’s playcalling. If DK calls the season like we been seeing in camp we may be golden. If he falls back to calling his 7 step drops while leaving the tackles on an island, gonna be another **** show.
