In the Raleigh area... they mentioned that The Football Outsiders Almanac accurately predicted that we would win the NFC South last year. This year, they have us at somewhere between 7 and 8 wins, with a 32% chance of making the playoffs. From all that I've gathered here, they're a pretty reliable and accurate source as far as prognosticating and such... I hadn't seen that posted here, so what do you think about it?
Sadly, unless KB blows up the league really quickly, I definitely seeing us taking a step back. I will believe we will make the playoffs until we're mathematically eliminated, but I do think with the losses we had from last season's squad, it will be tough to replicate what we did, and I felt that way before hearing this.
I really hope I'm wrong. I want us to be a perennial contender - and we should be with Cam and Luke as the leaders of each side of the ball, respectively.
