not sure why that matters.

if I were to listen to you, we shouldn't expect improvement and wins cause we've been let down before.

This team could have the best talent in the league, but if they don't figure out how to stop the slow starts that have doomed past seasons, it'll be over before it even starts.

you don't have to listen to me.

 

you make it sound like getting let down is a rare thing. I've just come to expect it because that's what they do.

 

i expect improvement. i don't expect a winning season because that's not happened but a few times ever and not once since '09. for me to feel good about our chances this year i have to see them come out of the gate winning. until i see that i have no reason to believe that this year will be any different. a slow start with a poo load of excuses. i can't think of a more rational and reasonable way to view it.

 

i have no problem with people buying the yearly hype and ignoring our past. i have no problem with a homeristic point of view. i just don't buy in to all that anymore. i wish i did but the blinders fell off.

When you talk about how good our offense and defense are because they were "top 12" you aren't being objective. Both were ranked 18th in points (you know the most meaningful stat, the one that actually determines wins and losses). Doesn't matter where they ranked in yards, 18th in points along with bad special teams means you aren't a good team.

Seriously. Some people on here act like we haven't won a playoff game in 8 years.

Im not ignoring any past.

I certainly don't wear blinders.

Do I have high hopes and expectations. Of course I do. Does that set me up for disappointment should the team not live up to them?

That's part of being a fan.

With Godfrey at the helm in the defensive backfield and Mitchell (IMO) starting we will be good as any at Safety.
 

 

Yes because what happens when one of the worst safeties in the league consistently ranked in the bottom tier in his position every single year joins forces with a reject Raider who was rated -5.1 by pff in 2012? One of the best safety tandems in the league, bro

Incredible. I gotta say the Cap Cam and Incredible Beason are my 2 favorites.

Cool write up. I did a take on the Panthers season and came away 13-3 too.

This year all those close losses are going to be close wins.

Go Panthers

 

 

 

Majority means NOT ALL.  A.H.

Once again, too many of you look at a person as an individual on a team.  Sometimes poor play is because of others weak positions on the team.  Not saying that person isn't a liability but in a different situation they can thrive. 

 

Mitchell seems to be fitting in quite nicely and IMO he'll do well.

 

You are so worried about a rating from PFF.   I don't even follow those damn rating just because they focus on an individual. 

 

Go back and look at our 2003 DBs.  Who where they.  Cousins and Howard and Manning at the Nickel.  Minter and Grant at safety.   We'll have solid play from our DBs.  

 

I will take Gettleman's opinion of Mitchell over yours.  I highly doubt we brought him in because Gettleman was doing him a favor.

you literally said "we're as good as anybody at safety" when these guys have proven for years they aren't

 

safety is a disaster waiting to happen as soon as the rush is contained
