I agree about Everett. His blocking had to improve and it did.
Of course, but I think trust is as big or bigger - and that too is based on talent. But it's also having intricate knowledge of the complete offense, not just one's individual role. Not sure Higs or Everett have that level of offensive command...yet. But it should be fully engrained this upcoming season.
McVay simply has to expand his playbook when it comes to personnel. There is too much film on what's been done to date, and even to the fan's eye we started looking predictable at the end of the season.
The biggest key is the O-line; getting bigger and more physical without losing the athleticism that is required for the zone run game and pass pro, while being able to add in more man-blocking, and power-G/center pull, center and guard pull/power run schemes.
Basically, the offense needs to be adept and efficient at being more multiple. I see that as an off-season goal.
Same applies to the D: Creating the ability to be more multiple/unpredictable in the fronts, stunts, twists, blitzes, and coverages.
We have a tremendous nucleus to build these scheme upgrades. Need another magical off season in player retention/acquisition to make it completely implementable.
