Not to be a negative Nancy, but....

We will not have a top 10 run and pass D and O. Way to much to ask if you ask me.

Most likely we will have a top 5 run O, and top 10 pass D. But that is where it stops.

This is not a playoff team, and that's not saying that the sky is falling, nor that I am upset about it, but we do have some issues that will keep us from making a good run.

I just do not believe you can say that definitively. The truth is the team has the potential to be a top team in the NFC this season, at the same time the team does has potential to finish under 500.

I just think it comes down too all of our young players and how they step up across the board. We have seen flashes of some of them, but now they will have to perform on a consistent basis. I just think there are too many new pieces to say the team can not achieve this season. There are a lot of question-marks....But this team has plenty of talent with a high ceiling.

Definitively, no. What I can say, is that I will be absolutely shocked, and delighted if we have a top 10 Run D, Pass D, Run O and Pass O.

Do we have some talent? Absolutely. Do we have the talent across the board to be in front of 21 teams at the least in 4 of the 5 major categories in the NFL? Hell no.

We most likely will not be in the top 10 in Pass O, nor Run D. Sorry dude.

Thanks for the welcoming words guys, as far as the Top 10 run D, I should clarify that I think that mostly because, I believe our schedule is pretty favorable and also that I believe once the Offense really starts clicking that hopefully a lot of teams will be playing from behind and have to abandon the run somewhat, I don't mean that our Run D personnel will be top 10 necessarily, but that would be nice

I'm hoping they will step up like the OKC Thunder did this year

I agree 100%!!!

I feel like people here have absolutely NOTHING to complain about until our team shows nothing in the regular season. I mean we havent even seen this team play a pre-season game and already "its a rebuilding year."

We should be nothing but optomistic about this year. We havent seen competition at positions like this in 10years!

Come one people...and GREAT first post.

I don't knock fuzz for his opinion...I think most of us are fans first and probably have an unrealistic sense of optimism (myself included) about the moves made.

I think of all the Colts defenses that Meeks ran, and they almost always struggled stopping the run. So I understand a lack of confidence in that area until we see how the new d-line performs.

I'll miss Peppers productivity, but I don't think he will perform as well now that he has his fat contract. (*except when they play against Carolina).

NOTE: This is not "complaining"...this is a person trying to put his heart aside and talk about his favorite team objectively.

I'm also a professional NFL handicapper and I advise people of who to bet on each and every week for a small cost.

I consulted to Oracle at Delphi, and she told me to remind the masses that John Fox's teams can only win in alternating years. Playoff berth it is!
