I think we are way better than last year.

Have a stud at MLB in Kuechly.

Have two very good defensive ends in Johnson and Hardy.

Cam has another year under his belt and showed some great improvement at the end of this year.

Gettleman > Hurney

Cap situation has been bad both offseason's.

Coaching situation is more cloudy this year. Rivera had a longer leash last offseason, this year its make or break.

Same. We are always the same. Outside of two pathetic seasons our franchise is the same.

i would just like to know how much longer they think that rome is going to be under construction and where they are expecting to be in this process of theirs next year.

I'd say the fans are better off this year... Our expectations are not as high as last season so if we suck it up we would expect it if we do good we'll freak out and say "I knew it... I knew we were gonna be good" (when we thought otherwise)

As for the team... There has been improvements and there has been "wtf" moments. The improvements are having Gettleman here and Jim Skipper back and I believe we made good movements with the QB and WR coach. The "wtf" moments promoting Shula (I really hope he proves me wrong) and releasing the LB coach

is it better to finally know that your team is hopelessly accepting of being average?

its never better to have very little hope that your team will be great.

We have a GM with real experience in player evaluation and a track record of success at it.

I see that as a big positive when it comes time to build the next roster.

Leaning more towards worse but getting rid of Hurney was a huge step in the right direction.

Hiring Shula was another step back though. This team can't continue forward, they always have to do something that puts them back and keeping Rivera sets back the Gettleman hire.

i have faith that the team will be built better, but little faith that it will be coached better.

Would you rather go in the season thinking we were going to the Playoffs and play terrible on offense and kill you on the inside, or have lower expectations?

the SB should be the expectation of every fan.....maybe not the Falcons, since they will always choke...

lacking faith in your team sucks. having low expectations suck. I'd rather believe they were capable of great things and quite able of delivering on them. i don't.
