If they can be on track from start to finish, we should win games with our offense reaching 20 consistently.

If Fitz finds his sweet spot with our WR group, man we could actually see a few real blowouts this year.

It could be an amazing team.

I agree, but the key to that is the OL, and to a lesser degree, turnovers. The slow starts appeared largely due to not sustaining drives and giving the D a rest and/or turning the ball over in bad positions. If this OL is improved, rejuvenated and can control the clock better, then that in turn should help the D play better too. There's also the psychological factor of the D not feeling like they have to bail the O out all the time and win games for them.
