I don't see why we can't make the playoffs this year.

You answered your own question. Except this person and this person who has he waited on....I mean come on now really? He is pretty much forced to come around ( take a chance) at this point form multiple angles. Unless he decided to coach this year differently with a bunch of rookies and young guys while also all of a sudden deciding he could do it with half the year's salary than last years' and convinced the FO that is what they all should do. But he didn't, the FO is really testing Foxs' worth this year.

But to be clear you guys are saying Fox prefers young talent over Vets right? and you guys probably believe Jake actually broke his finger too..

I answered my own question? I guess I did--and it shreds your point. You have nothing but two incidents in eight years with which you can characterize Fox that way, and I even offered you two others that would be stretches but it goes no further. I'm sorry, but you have nothing to stand on in your characterization. And in that it doesn't surprise me that you tried to put it back on me.

Fox doesn't do what you say he does, plain and simple. And that's a good thing. :)

Solid Defense, Great OL, Great Running game and I feel we will have solid play at QB.

I just don't buy into the gloom and doom.

Still-developing defense, good OL, great running game, and maybe solid QB play.

Moreover, there are rookies at key positions, and 2-3 year old "vets" who are still green (our QBs being among that number).

I don't buy into the gloom and doom either, but realistically there are several reasons I can see us not making the playoffs this year. But, being an optimist, I hope that we do.

We have an elite running game, elite O-line, elite receiver, solid QB. We have a great secondary and one of the best LB cores in the entire league. Our ST's should improve dramatically with all the FA's we signed to address that need. The only concerns are the d-line, where I think Brown and Johnson will break-out as great pass rushers, and overall depth. We have what looks to be an easy schedule and if we can stay healthy we have a great chance to make the play-offs.

I don't know what franchise you think this is, but we are not the raiders or the skins. They aren't forcing fox to play any certain players. The front office is obviously working within a buget that they have in mind. Fox is not the kind of guy that would stay anywhere if someone was telling him\forcing him how to coach/run the team. You guys have literally ran wild with the idea that richardson is running this team like davis runs the raiders, putting his hands in everything. That is not richardson. He hired guys to run the football operations of the franchise, and he let's them do it.

Or injuries, or anything. Put down the doom and gloom crystal ball, as nobody knows how this next season will end up playing out.

Ever been at the end of your chips and gone all in on a hand you like but know is statistically not exactly rock solid?

That's this season to me.

Yeah, crap we're sitting at the table with some good cards but no one figures we're a threat when you're looking across the table at the Media's darling. The New Orleans Kid.

Fug 'em, show me your cards bitch.
