Going into 2015, Ward was an inexperienced QB that had only had about half a season of work; he looked good at times and had some hiccups that may have been related to the offense and the outgoing offensive coordinator. Sounds like King going into this year.
Also, going into 2015, we had just lost an experienced group of receivers (Greenberry, Ambles, Spencer) and had a young group where we hoped someone would step up. If I remember correctly, our coach was constantly complaining about the state of our WR corp prior to that season. Out of that, we had Ayers, Allen, and Dunbar step up along with McCloskey at TE. Very similar to what we have going into this season.
