Official 2013 Prediction Thread

Record - 8-8
Kuechly will be a candidate for DPOY but fall short of winning. Our record and secondary will unfortunately be used against him.
Frank Alexander will finish 2nd in sacks
Ted Ginn finishes behind Smith and Olsen in receiving yards. Nothing too spectacular but turns into the big chunk play guy for us and becomes Cam's favorite target for the big play downfield.
Tolbert will lead all RBs and WRs in TD scores as they get away from Cam taking the goaline punishment.
Breakout player is Josh Norman. Wildly inconsistent but leads the team in INTs.
8-8 gets RR fired unfortunately and CRA bitches about firing a good HC who GMs didn't do enough to help him

Offensive Line can not hold up and is exposed.
Cam has a couple of late come from behind victories and makes the Pro Bowl Emerges as the clear leader on the offense
Smitty has another great year
Armanti shows some flash but still does not impress and there is no clear #2 receiver on the team
Defense shines and "Monsters Inc" moniker goes national although secondary gives up some garbage points
Team goes 9-7 finishes 1 game behind Atlanta in the division and miss the playoffs.
Gettleman and Big Cat decide that RR stays. Even though we don’t make the playoff the coaching is sound and does not warrant a regime change
Jordan Gross retires at the end of the season
Key needs to be addressed in the offseason
- Cam Extension
- Address OL
- Find a 1st and 2nd receiver
- Shore up the secondary

The games we should have won last year, that the D could not close (I'm not saying they lost it FOR US, but they seemed to come up short at the end) we win this year.
4-2 Division record
Sweep Falcons, split with Bucs/Saints
We keep Rivera and move on to draft a top Olineman in the draft, 2nd round DB and sign a top wide receiver in free agency.

I'm going to say we go 9-7 losing to the Seahawks and Giants to start 1-2 leading to Huddle panic. With a 9-7 record Rivera stays as we miss the playoffs again.

Oline is going to keep us from being really good. may end up costing RR his job.

Oline poses huge problems. Shula stubbornly tries to power run behind a makeshift oline. Gettis emerges as solid #3 and Ginn gets us a few ST return TDs. JStew goes to IR. Barner surprises everybody and ends up getting most of the carries as Dwill wears down late in the year. Cam has another solid year but he can't do everything.
Defense shines as Luke, Beason, and Davis are healthy. Hardy comes back to earth a bit but our three DE rotation gets close to 30 sacks. We lead the NFCS in turnover margin but big plays hurt us in the end.
The schedule and coaching ultimately are the reasons we finish 7-9.

Smith, Olsen, LaFell, Gettis, DA, Tolbert will be the order for receiving yards.
