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

No talent in the secondary, DT void, shaky o-line, best WR is getting way up in age, light hasn't come on for Cam. Right now I'm thinking around 6-10, but it's too soon to try and guess. Need a great draft.

Pre draft, 8-8. Depending on the draft, could be 10-6.

If we can get three starters out of this draft I think 10-6 is a possibility and 9-7 more likely.

We have the talent to compete with anyone. And I think Rivera has learned a lot from his mistakes these past 2 years, he won't make as many crucial mistakes this year. Defense is going to be underrated and we're going to add a playmaker at WR in the draft, plus OL and DT.

11-5, considering all the close losses we've endured the past 2 years. The team will finally find a way to win those close ones.

49ers, Patriots, Falcons, Vikings, Saints, and Giants will be our toughest games.

Cam wasn't the best QB or anything statistically the last 6 or so games of the season.

I honestly see it as another lame duck season. I don't feel Rivera is head coach material and the new GM now has a season to get a feel for the organization and hand pick his head coach.

What you see currently is about what we will take to the field.

No big money for impact players via free agency
No big impact player for us at 14 in the draft. Warmack or Cooper might start, but don't think any WR would have a great impact for us this season. None of the rookies I see at 14 could be a Cam or Keek.

We are young, but learning. 8-8 is about where we stand for the upcoming season. A couple unexpected returns for TD's by Ginn however, could put is around 9-7 and in the hunt for a wild card. Super Bowl no

Every loss last season, except for the Broncos and Giants, we lost by less than a touchdown. If Rivera learned from his mistakes and coached like he did in those last few games, there's no reason we can't make the playoffs.

wouldn't call it a lame duck year because i think he and his staff will be fighting for their jobs and won't be just laying down, but i agree with the rest.

rivera's game management is going to be his undoing.
