With Trgo getting resigned and Peppers gone?

I say 25th.

No idea at this point. Once we see the outcome of the Peppers scenario we might have a better idea.

If we effectively stay pat with both scheme and only sign rotational guys I can see us carrying on the trend of the end of the season. So that would be in the bottom quarter at best.

Really much too early to speculate on that. We've got to see who we've got coming in, how we look in preseason,etc.

Besides I would have thought that with Peppers' lazy ass gone, you'd predict a higher ranking.

The other DE's are even lazyer.

Hmm... Let's look at the defense. Beason has another year in, Godfrey isn't a rookie, Connor instead of Diggs, more depth at DT (count on it), some sort of replacement for Peppers (nothing special but someone reliable), Gamble, Marshall, and a new nickel.

Playing more ball control than ever before, with two solid running backs and an outstanding line. I think Davidson will slow down with the long passes and do more ball control. Time of possession is a good thing, it keeps the other offense off the field.

Opponents include New England, Giants, Eagles, and Arizona. We also have Atlanta and New Orleans twice. On the other hand, we get Buffalo, Washington, Minnesota, and Tampa Bay twice. Dallas and Miami aren't anything special either.

I think we'll end up around 12-13, maybe a little higher.

16th, a few great players with a poor scheme not utilizing their skills.

Connor instead of Diggs

conner would be out of position at OLB.

besides, it's not like Diggs is holding us back or anything. He's a fine player.
