2012 Army Preview: Presnap Read

Saturday, June 9, 2012

Presnap Read has their Army preview up. Army appears at #88 of their countdown

It's a fair place to put Army, who brings back a backfield of talent, but lose a little bit on the defensive line. I prefer Phil Steele's ranking of #80, but only because that ranking is above #81 Navy.

Presnap Read is as complete a preview as we've seen to this point, and most of their concerns for this team lie in the intangibles.

Can Steelman remain healthy? Can Maples replicate his breakout season? Can the backfield as a whole avoid injuries that plagued the group during the spring? More questions, this time about the offensive line: Can this starting five find a groove? Can they remain healthy? Does Army have enough depth to stay afloat if one, two or three miss an extended period of time? The offense has great potential; it has also several meaningful questions to address. And you can’t avoid two elephants still in the room: this defensive line and the stretch of 11 games over 11 weeks.

If it comes down to talent, it's a bowl team - if the season is affected by injuries it could be another long year.

Head on over to Presnap Read and read the whole preview.
