Guys...we are not making the playoffs

But it doesn't matter. We were never going to make the playoffs and we weren't trying to make the playoffs. This season was about building for the future and it's working. This is an extended preseason for this team in hopes to be ready to roll next year.

This team looks very promising but we do have many holes to fill. Our QB has two more years before we have to decide anything on him but all signs point to it being a good pick, as long as he doesn't regress like many do. Our receivers area a threat with Smitty, a promising Gettis returning, and any one of the other young guys stepping up. TE is one of the strongest parts of our offense and Olsen is young, Shockey is a leader, and Barnidge will be given a chance to prove he's worthy of being in the lineup when the time comes. Our backs are as talented as they come, despite their utilization in this offense. We have as many weapons as anyone else in the league.

Defense is another story. This draft should be defensive heavy with the exception of a possible stud WR or T. Our young DTs will have an offseason to get stronger and prove they weren't just quantity picks, but quality picks as well. We'll get our leader back in the middle. We need a #2 corner to develop and it would be nice to see improved safety play.

Despite this team looking for it's 5th win of the season and no real trademark, quality wins thus far, we are a threat to almost anyone out there and next year looks even better.

That whole "In The Hunt" graphic ESPN had up really messed with my head. I almost spit out my beer when I saw us on there.

C'mon. He made a level-headed and unbiased post and you're still going to call him out? There was nothing Cam bashing in what he said. Yes, he comes off as a troll most of the time when dealing with Cam, but there was nothing negative in his post. He said "IF". He didn't say he would. He even said it looked like a good pick.

Nothing groundbreaking, but a solid post, nonetheless.

Have you seen his other posts? This one is clearly a fake meant to show that he isn't a troll. No one is fooled.

Except maybe you.

Also OP, no shit Sherlock.

So what those posters are probably mentally handicapped. I conclude you must believe that you can sway the mentally handicapped with your incredible posting abilities.

I swear TRD is Bipolar as hell!

If you don't believe me, just come back to this thread in about an hour, once the true TRD is baited into rearing his ugly head. It never fails!

Good post none the less, but "We don't believe you, you need more people"

it was a good post. i hope he can keep it up. he (or anyone else) should be surprised when his better posts aren't met with a bit of cynicism. it's well deserved, imo.

That's two threads in ONE WEEK that aren't pure trolling by TRD. Hell... it's a tad bit cold down there today I hear.

I know this isn't directed at me, but I'd like to point out the title of my thread was "The Hell that must freeze over...etc, etc."

Not directed at you one bit....You're one of my top 5 fav posters.

It was just a catchy title to talk about the expectations this team should have and the progress we are making to become a true playoff threat. The pieces we have, the decisions the FO made, the experience we've gained, etc
