I don't know what the title means, but I did appreciate the vid.  I really don't pay attention to predictions as much as I analyze what is being said, and the guys have some logical opinions.  I hope they're wrong, but they could be right.  We'll see.  Either way, I'm not expecting a Super Bowl and won't be jumping off any bridges.  

 

A good pat of the Huddle has an attitude about preseason like Allen Iverson had about practice.  Indeed, it's preseason which ultimately doesn't matter, but it is used for evaluation purposes.  It's not that you lose a preseason game, it's the way that your starters compete.  The Patriots, in many ways the class of the NFL, made our suspected problem areas in April look like problems in August.  There was a false sense of security last week against another suspect O-line, and a KC team that has a suspect receiving squad much like ours, as well as a suspect defensive backfield.  Upper echelon teams like the Pats give us a truer indication of who we really are, or at least what we need to duct tape in order to have a semblance of short term success (in light of cap realities). 

 

People just need to sit back, relax, and temper their expectations.  Don't put too much into the preseason, but don't put too little into it either.  But, also remember the bigger picture, including the predicament we're in due to Marty Hurney.  Gettleman is trying to navigate this legacy in the manner he sees fit. We are not going to agree with him all the time, but hopefully in a couple  of years we will be all the better for it.  I just hope that Cam isn't the scapegoat or fall guy.  I can get with G-man doing his thing, but don't try to blame Cam if the desired results don't come about as fast as you'd like.

Good find even though it didn't make me feel any better about the team.  Worse actually haha.  

 

When they mentioned us paying Beason $8 million this year, I did a quick search.  

 

This year, we're paying (in dead money):

 

Beason - $8 million

Smitty - $5 million

James Anderson - $2.8 million

Gross - $1.7 million

 

Then you have the ones on the roster in D'lo, Stewart, and Godfrey strapping us.  Fug you Hurney.

Didn't watch but I'm sure I could guess the overall theme.  

 

Preseason makes me nervous every year when we dont look good.  But sometimes we fix it and sometimes we don't.

 

Cam looked like a complete rookie in his first preseason, then proceeded to rip the league apart.

 

I'm not expecting a 12-4 record again but I'm also not expecting 7-9 either.

 

9-10 wins looks about right for this squad.  We will take lumps early again then beat the brakes off a few in a row then level out much like last year.

This is why we don't have a line and weapons for Cam.  Everybody that overlooks this info is pushing a different agenda.

Counting the smaller contracts and bonuses, we're at $20 million in dead money.  (spotrac)

 

Pending any 2-year deals, Gettleman giving us a $5 million cushion in cap going into next season will help out a bit.

Disagree when they said that the receiving core last year was a huge upgrade compare to this years. Good listen though, thanks for sharing.

I will be perfectly honest and I know I will catch heat but I honestly dont think our offense would see such a big drop off if DA had to get the start like most people think. DA has looked consistently sharp since he got here and he seems to have good chemistry with Benjamin and Bersin, he also pulled off some nice runs this pre season as well.

While Cam is solid no doubt, people assume losing him would be a disaster like if the Broncos lost Manning, while Cam is very good I dont think there is that wide of a gap between him and DA as some on here think.
