But even as good as things look (and believe me, they do look really good).....we gotta remember that as fans, we have a habit of reading too many offseason articles and letting them delude us into a false sense of reality. Example: in 2007 people thought Jason David was going to be "the final piece", and the expectations for the Saints by most fans was a Super Bowl. Instead we got an 0-4 start.
Yep. I've been visiting the sites for several different teams and it's easy to see the press is hyping up every team. As an example, ESPN just did regular season records and predicted the NFL would be 32 games over .500.

NFL Nation: How will your team finish? - NFL Nation Blog - ESPN

Since that's mathematically impossible, it's apparent the writers at ESPN would rather tell their readers something they'd like to hear rather than the cold, hard truth that some teams are going to blow next year.

Also, there are question marks at kicker. And yet, you only see that mentioned a handful of times. Meaning people either really trust Shayne Graham, or they are confident that Derek Dimke is the answer.

Yea kicker is a big one that I think we tend to forget. Kickers only get mentioned or thought about when they miss kicks. I liked Graham but he just doesn't have the distance anymore. I hope we work out several.

If Leonard Fournette was donning black and gold instead of purple and gold this year I'd bet the house we'd win the bowl. Wait I might just do that anyway. Who Dat!
