Expectations for next year?

97 posts in this topic

We still have tons of holes on the roster. I'd like to see the rest of the offseason play out before I make any predictions

9-7 +/- a game.

I will be the first in line to apologize and eat poo if we go 9-7 or 10-6.

Think whatever you want bro. I got ripped last year for saying 6-8 wins when everybody else was saying Super Bowl. Until our coaching staff shows me something to prove they know how to win against GOOD teams then I am predicting 6-8 wins. They do great against mediocre teams, but look at their record against winning teams.

And nobody cheers louder than me at the games. Ask the people who sit next to me in 529.

I was one of them who thought we would do better but I didn't slam you because you felt 6-8 wins. Slam the ones who slam you.

Your right, Coaching staff is the biggest question. Not Talent. I believe Rivera learned a lot last year. I was also was against bringing him back. Management felt he did enough. I think the end of the read option was more of the reason we started winning then just the teams we were playing. We were the last team to beat Washington, we shoulda beat Seattle, Atlanta we had once and let them off the hook. And lastly you win the games you are supposed to. Because those games were at the end of the season talk to the schedule makers.

I think we have a realistic shot of going 8-8 +- 5. And about a 37.5% shot of making the playoffs.

I honestly don't know. The last time I had literally no grip on what sort of team we had was in 2007. Hopefully we do better than that year, but honestly it's tough to say. I think a losing year could be for the best in the long run if we fire Rivera and bring in a better coach.

9-7 and a wildcard appearance with a crushing last second loss that will be a painful reminder of this past season. This will be followed by the usual clown crusaders completely ignoring that the team made the playoffs and finding a reason to bitch.

With Gettleman here, the team behind Ron, FA sign/resigning and the upcoming draft... I see great things ahead. I predicted 11-5 last yr and I still think we can achieve at least that this yr.

I also like Shula being given another shot, he seems to have Cam's confidence, so im excited to see what they do together.

You can look at this with a glass half empty or half full mentality

7 = total number of wins last yr

7 = number of games we lost by 6 pts or less

2 = number of games blown out
