Neuheisel hoping to get off Bruins’ hot seat
“We know that we can run it,” Neuheisel said. “We’ve got to marry a pass game to it. If we can marry it, we’ll have an offense that’s much more explosive than in years past.”
Neuheisel’s excitement about the Bruins’ depth doesn’t extend to the offensive line, where two positions are up for grabs. Stalwart left guard Jeff Baca has an injured left ankle that might keep him out of the season opener and beyond, forcing Neuheisel to shuffle his starting lineup before the season starts.
New defensive coordinator Joe Tresey is expected to provide more aggression and risk-taking than departed coordinator Chuck Bullough, and the Bruins might have the personnel to pull it off. Jones seems poised for a breakout year after injuries scuttled last season, while cornerback Sheldon Price and Dye form the backbone of a solid secondary.
New leaders must emerge after several prominent departures for the NFL in the past two years, yet defense rarely has been the Bruins’ problem under Neuheisel, still considered an offensive mastermind by his players.
“It definitely helps to have one solid voice now, one way of doing things,” Prince said. “We’ve got what we need to succeed and throw the ball well. We just have to do it.”
