Did we need to have this sort of season?

We started off the season with high expectations, and a guarantee to win the Super Bowl with our healthy, young, swaggerific team. Quickly we learned just how prepared we were.
Cam goes into a slump. Our highly touted offensive coordinator loses his mind. Our GM is fired, and the silent killer behind all of this is left to take care of the entire franchise. We found ourselves out of contention a while ago, but to many fans surprise, our team has not given up.
Things have turned around. Our defense is top 10. Our QB is back to playing the way we all love to see him play. Our offense looks normal, and is running efficiently. No special team blunders.
You never want to lose, or having losing seasons, but do you think this season has really taught us that we aren't invincible? We're just like every other team and everyone needs to excel at their jobs of we want to be successful.
Just a thought.

Just a typhought.
And a pretty good thought imo.
Just look at Kalil's ad. Look at how we came out against Tampa, and then how we followed up the Saints win. From the front office to the coaches to the players, they bought into the hype too much.
Time will tell whether or not they have learned their lesson. Gut feel says yes, but it's too early to tell. Let's see how they come out against the Raiders. This is a team they should beat, but also the type of contest in which we seem to often underwhelm.

Everyone else too, I guess. But I think Cam was humbled, and improved by his mistakes being so big even when they were barely his. He'll be a better QB after 2012

I think the hype is comparable to that moment when Lebron said not 1, not 2, not 3 etc... He had to learn it takes a lot of hard work the hard way and Cam learning that now. So yes it was a blessing

Considering how terrible we have been for years, if they thought they were "invincible" heading into this season they need mental health professionals, not another losing season.
Well the feeling in the air after last season is the same as it is now... That we were in all but a few games, and could have just as easily won those games as we did lose. So the logic was, we get a full offseason to fix those minor things to help us finish, and we will be great. There has never been a more exciting feeling like we have now. We actually have a future, not having to wonder whether jake throws picks one game or deshuan foster fumbles.
