I think that we are good enough to win the South this season and make the Playoffs. I will not take anything less than a wildcard spot. But, I am not ready to say we are SB contender. I think we are a few pieces away from that. We have some good veterans players and 4-5 very good young players that will lead this team to the future. A couple more pieces (WR, OT, S) added to this team and I can see us being a SB contender as soon as 2014-2015.
You are letting the past, limit your idea of who we are now, by jumping ahead to who we can be. If we can be SB contenders with only adding a WR, S, and OT?. Why can't this team compete? Why do we have to wait for the future to get here to have a good team?
If we go say 10-6 this year. Over the last 23 games our record will have been 15-8. Seems like the future has already started to me.
