So who is ready for double digit wins and playoffs next year?

44 posts in this topic

9-10 wins is my prediction right now (without major moves).

10-11 wins if we pick up a couple nice players.

9-10 without major moves? You have a lot of confidence in guys returning from injury on defense I take it, heh.

Either we have gigantic holes on D or have some trouble in coachland there, and it's likely a bit of both... which has me cautious about predicting too much for next year.

Will be better than this year, but... I'm a negative nancy, as most of you guys know. No offense to any Nancys that frequent this board :P

for a 2nd year team? 7-9 at best... but with THIS team? 9-7 should be expected. and that's with a shitty defense barely keeping us in games (depending on injuries)...

I have high expectations..

Rivera coached number 1 defenses in chicago and san diego (with no namers in SD). There is no way ur telling me he cant match or trump a john fox defense with a full offseason to teach, retool, and rejuvenate.

that depends if he wants to step on his opponents throat or play bend/don't break..

if he's more the latter, he'll be allowed to "walk" just the same...

<-------- so tired of coaches playing scared...

This conversation will be more meaningful after the draft and FA.

We may be 80% of the way to becoming a solid contender, but keep in mind that the final 20% is the toughest part.

That said, I love this team's chances going forward.

People were saying the same thing about the Bucs were they not??? How did that workout?

Valid to a point. I'm not sure the Bucs are the best example; they have a weak staff, do not maximize their talent level (see cap space) and the Glazers may be more interested in Manchester United than the Bucs.

But obviously, this team has to show progress next year to validate their direction and philosophy.
