Riders should be better

Better on D because of an improved pass rush and better cover guys
Better on O because of improved O-line play, better passing game, and George Cortez
ST's should still be good on cover teams. May be better on returns if they found a speed guy to go along with Sanders and Dressler. Should be adequate if not dynamic. Kicking game--not sure, but will probably be adequate, at least.
West Division teams should all be good and all of those games should be tough and very competitive.
I'll go out on a limb and predict 12 wins for the Riders with 6 against each division. How's that for daring?
