How do some people justify a 11-5 record or better when more than half the offensive production was shown the door replaced with a olinemen and a running back that can't get on or stay on the field. The defense shown the door the guy even though was a jerk but got to the opposing qb. The top two corners are hurting and are gonna miss time. The defense is filled with rookies.

Some of us aren't being Negitive Nancy's just wanna use our eyes and head to think instead of our hearts that bleed black and gold

Face the Facts people this team is not the team of a few short years ago
We were terrible on defense last year, and lost several games in the final seconds, and still finished 7-9.

We've upgraded almost every position except TE, yet some believe we won't be any better?

7 wins at best. Until I see some defensive improvement and pass rush I won't think otherwise.

Our division was really crappy last year too. If it were any other year we would have gotten swept by all of them the way our defense was playing.

8-8... Defense will be 2012-style awful. Not being a "negative Nancy"... This is just what I see.

I'm curious, why do you think that?

At least one of the teams with a new coach will roll out a playoff team - Atlanta could be most improved or could be the biggest flop.
Saints at 0-4 preseason could be laughable or shock everyone and have players step up to the plate.

Right now I have no feel for this team. It's tempting to look at 0-4 preseason and predict disaster.... they my better judgement kicks in and remembers Joe Gibbs teams in Washington looking pathetic in preseason and winning Superbowls. Same for Walsh's 49ers.

I also had no feel for the Saints in 2009 and we rolled the NFL and wiped our rear-ends with teams like they were toilet paper.
This is really where I'm at, mentally, about this team. I truly don't have a feel. I'm not doom and gloom, and I'm not particularly optimistic either. I have a very pessimistic outlook on certain players, but I have higher hopes for other players than some people do.

I think we're going to be really good or really bad. It's been such a weird off-season and preseason that I'm not sure what's real. There's a lot of front line talent, but it's almost like they're playing dumb. If our depth is as bad as it looks on paper, and some of our injured starters don't get healthy, it could be a long season.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.

Re: Post your predictions

If we can get to Carson Palmer early, and maintain pressure - that's the key to the game...
