7. Special Teams

On the one hand, this year was a success from a special teams standpoint in that they never made any major mistakes. Sure there were field goals missed, penalties committed and mental errors made, but at no point did they give up a touchdown or fumble a kick/punt return. That’s techincally a win for the returners, even if Jakeem Grant’s reputation as a game-breaker took a hit.

Kenny Williams is the MVP in our book for being a solid tackler and making big plays on fake punts to move the sticks.
