There's a thing called depth. Giants were hurt too.

Depth is good, but lets hope we don't have to go deep like last year.

...and recovered in the nick of time...they were within a game of not making the playoffs at all..and benefited from a "Cowboy Collapse".

Trying to be humble as a fan, just having a winning season next year will be a blessing.

We get a defense and we're in the playoffs.... and once you get in the tournament anything can happen.

After thinking about it I think we give him one more shot then draft his replacement next year.

Defense really is the issue. With Chud coming back and Newton having a full offseason, you would expect the offense to improve. The real question is how much better the defense will be compared to last year. If we can improve to only 2009 levels we should be a playoff team.
