    With a healthy line, I think we will be better than 2013.  Remember, Lotulelei and Short were rookies that year.  With the maturity they have now, they will only be better.  I believe Allen has some left in his tank, and he is an all-time pro.  Whatever Hardy has done so far in his career, Allen has been there and done that.  We actually picked this dude up a year late, but it's worth it seeing we are paying him close to vet minimum.

    I was looking at Calvin Johnson for J-Stew.  Yet then again, that contract. (I wonder if the Lions would be interested BTW)

    Just looked at his profile on the NFL website.  He will have to put on some pounds to get back into full time DE shape.

    This is what I'm talking about.  I believe it was last year, I said we should sign Allen and let Hardy walk.  Kind of like with Ted Ginn back in 2013.  We should have signed him in 2012.  We are always a year late with these moves, but it's better late than never.  (I also said we should have signed Veldheer who is playing outstanding ball with the Cardinals heehee.)

    We need Michael Irvin to come in and have a few words with Funchess.  Remember this number...

    I believe we all know who will win this battle.

    I wonder what we could get if we traded Stewart?

    I don't watch the news "too" often.  Yet for the past couple of days, every time I tune in, they are talking about this man.  I mean no disrespect to Catholics, but the news is treating this dude like he's Jesus.  Come on, I want to see them talk about something else for a change, though for what it's worth, at least they aren't talking about all the political stuff surrounding the next election.

    I see our only major problem is with our receivers.  Any other problem we have, we got the players and the talent to render them close to obsolete.  I would say our biggest problem going into training camp was Oher's play at LT.  Would he be able to be a difference maker and protect Cam?  So far he has been very serviceable.  We also were able to block JJ Watt well enough yesterday, and I consider him the toughest pass rusher we will face this year.  Another problem we might have is the running game, but I don't see it as a big deal at all.  Stew will get the yards he need to get, with the likely possibility of having great games.  Once CAP jump Fozzy on the depth chart, we should be straight there.
    Again, our wideouts are our biggest concern, and I believe once Funchess get his feet under him, that will become less of a problem.  Every other team have real problems.  The Seahawks are revolting against their coach, Drew Brees is hurt and going downhill, the Colts defense suck, the Eagles' Chip Kelly is a mad scientist, etc.

    Answer me this, other than the Packers, tell me who will beat us this year and I will show you why we will beat them.  Every other team I see, has major problems.

    Of course this is more circumstantial than how good we are right now.  I believe our receiving will improve bit by bit, and that is really the main thing holding us back.

    Could the Panthers Possibly Run the Table?
    Bump it.  I'm jumping the gun here, but in all reality when I look at our defense with it's ability to get multiple turnovers a game and all the problems going on with our opponents, I'm starting to think we can go 16-0.  The Saints are on a downward spiral, the Bucs are playing a rookie QB (and they are simply not good), the Seahawks have mutiny within their ranks, and the Giants are struggling internally as well.  Right now I see our toughest opponents will be the Packers and perhaps the Falcons, yet we will beat them so really only the Packers.  Here is the rest of our schedule....
    My assessment is we beat the Saints, Bucs (each both times), and the Falcons two times without much trouble.  The Falcons' only threat is their passing game, which we've been shown to shut down pretty consistently.  I can't remember the last time Matty "Vanilla" Ice was able to put up big numbers against us, especially since Norman has been our starter.  We are only ten times better in the secondary than last year.  Without a passing game, Atlanta doesn't stand a chance and the battle for I-95 will continue to be ours.  Next you have the Seahawks.  We have never beaten the Seahawks with Russell Wilson at QB, but most of the games have been close.  You could say we should have won a couple had it not been for some slip ups.  Well, now the Seahawks are in disarray.  Kam Chancellor is sitting out, and their power back Marshawn Lynch is on cruise control...

    ...I believe we go up to Seattle off a bye, and take care of business.  Who knows, by then perhaps Funchess will be our full time starter, and he light things up on the leaderless LOB.  So, what about Andrew Luck and the Supreme Colts?  We all know Mr. Luck is a turnover machine in Peyton Manning clothing.  Now I wouldn't sleep on TY Hilton.  If he's healthy, he can take the lid off of any defense.  They also have other young receivers that could cause trouble, but ultimately they have two old vets they depend on who I believe are running on fumes.  They are Andre Johnson and Frank Gore.  I believe we can take care of them without any problems.  With the offense taken care of, the Colts defense is straight pathetic.  In all honesty, I can't really name you anyone on that squad other than Robert Mathis, if he's still playing.
    Finally that leaves us with our biggest challenge, Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers.  Man, the way Rodgers fling that ball like it's nothing and still have pinpoint accuracy is unbelievable.  Things are easier with not having to deal with Jordy Nelson, but in reality, no things are not easier.  Number 12  could pick me up and have me running routes and catching touchdowns like Randy Moss.  Assuming Randall Cobb is healthy, along with James Jones and crew, things just won't be easy.  Now we do play them at home, and that goes in our favor.  Last time Cam played them here, we were dominating the first quarter and went into halftime with a lead.  Another thing going for us is that we play them later on, hopefully having everyone healthy.  In the end, if we can win that game, I see us having a good chance at going 16-0.  What say you?

    Cam has always struggled to step up into the pocket.  That is why we need to get him outstanding OTs.
