Re: Six franchises heading downhill

We are 7-9 three straight seasons, can we really argue with these analysis? We have to prove them wrong, they have their proof

Re: Six franchises heading downhill

I can't really argue that. We've had three straight losing seasons and haven't had a winning record since January 2013. We've acquired some players on defense that could make us field a respectable defensive unit after some development by maybe 2018... But by then it could be too late.

Re: Six franchises heading downhill

The article missed out on two important phases in wins and losses ...

Health and Coaching.

We have also lacked depth over the years ... going into camp, I don't see this as an issue. No McMahon, Vitt or Johnson either. Last year Dennis showed improvement (second half adjustments) + we've added talent across the board. I'm never one for excuses but damn, we were wiped out defensively by week 5 & guys in the secondary were falling like logs.

For me, the off season is a time for optimism. Let's just hope that injuries are somewhat kind to us in 2017. My X factor coach is Nolan. what YardBarker says. Tough division no doubt, but ST will improve (coaching), offensive will continue to be explosive and #9 is still under center. Bring it.

This is our time fellas ... our time.

When does training camp start again ? ...

Could not have stated it better. This whole organization has seen positive changes this off-season. Better talent, more depth, better coaching, more experience. You don't like something about the past, what do you do? You change it. We could be looking at one of the premier rushing attacks in the league. I am pumped!

Re: Six franchises heading downhill

Lmao!!! **** man, they shouldn't even field a team this year right? What's the point of trying?! I mean, this article says the Saints are circling the drain. That means they are right? I guess I might as well pack up my balls and leave. Lol.

Forecast says it's gonna rain tomorrow. Might as well prepare for a flood just in case!

I consider myself a realist, if there is such a thing. But the season hasn't even started for hells sake. While I agree that it's up to this team to improve and change people's opinions and expectations about what's in store for the future, I'm gonna let them play a snap first before throwing them to the gators.

I can't stop laughing!

The best part is the 5 teams mentioned will be playing in January.

Re: Six franchises heading downhill

The Bucs 2013- 4/12, 2014 2-14, 2015 6-10, 2016 9-7...so they got one game above 500 and I guess they are a team on the rise then huh lol.

You can twist any stat any way you want depending on the angle you are going for. Articles like this are useless and mean nothing.
