I know. It's impossible to accurately predict what will happen THIS season, so it's nearly useless to try and project the power teams of the NFL in 2015. But it is kind of interesting all the same.
Roster: This isn't a roster stocked with young difference-makers, and that will be a challenge going forward with age a factor on every level. They do have a couple of decent young OTs and a pair of decent safeties, but at every other position, guys are closer to the end than the beginning and the backups aren't players who excite. This looks like a roster that could fall apart as veterans retire unless they do a great job in the draft.
Front office: With the hiring of former Kansas City college director Phil Emery as GM, the philosophy of this front office will change. Emery will build this team through the draft, listen to head coach Lovie Smith and they will be a little more conservative in player acquisitions than the team has been in the past when chasing a Super Bowl title led to hit-and-miss spending on high-profile free agents. This front office should develop nicely.
