You didn't ask, but the 2021 team ranked 6th in points scored, 2nd in points allowed, 15th in yards, and 4th in yards allowed. Comparing this team to that one . . .
JJSS, Parker, Bourne, Thornton, Douglas, Boutte >>> Meyers, Bourne, Agholor, Harry, Olszewski, Wilkerson
RS + EE = DH + rookie RS
Henry + Gesicki >> Henry and Smith
Brown, Strange, Andrews, Onwenu, TBA << Wynn, Karas, Andrews, Mason, Brown
Gonzalez, Jones, Jones, Jones, Bryant, Wade = Jackson, Mills, Jon Jones, Bryant, Joejuan Williams, Ross
Duggar, Phillips, Peppers, Mills = McCourty, Phillips, Dugger, Davis
Godchaux, Barmore, Guy, Ekuale, Wise, Roberts, White > Godchaux, Wise, Guy, Ekuale, Davis, Barmore
Judon, Uche, Jennings, Bentley, Mapu, Tavai > Judon, Bentley, Hightower, Winovich, Van Noy, Uche, Collins
The only position group that was better then than now was OL, and things are way distorted right now because the current OL has been riddled with injuries. They had to roster 11 offensive lineman to make accommodations for all the injuries. Brown-Strange-Andrews-Onwenu is still a solid starting point, and then they need one of Sow, Reiff, Anderson, Wheatley, or Lowe to fill the other tackle spot.
