An opposing coach's view
The Dawgs are formidable if the running game is in gear
"You still have to be able to run in this league to win, and junior tailback Musa Smith, a big back with breakaway speed, is the key to their season. They also have the second-best offensive line in the league.... Quarterback David Greene is intelligent, has a good arm and is accurate....They lost a lot on defense, but they still have depth and speed. Linebacker Boss Bailey is a freak. He can do anything: cover, stop the run, rush the quarterback.... Defensive tackle Johnathan Sullivan is hard to block one-on-one."
