The fact that we lost like 12 straight coin tosses or whatever the hell it was is a perfect microcosm of this team as a whole the last two years. Everything that could go wrong did at the most inopportune time.

As the article mentioned, simply playing similarly yet regressing to the mean gets us at 9-7. I think the team has improved by at least a couple wins above that. I'm always blindly optimistic, but 10-6 or 11-5 doesn't seem far fetched to me.

10-6 is what I said at the beginning of the preseason and I'm sticking to that. The pieces are there to win and possibly take the division if saints and falcons fall back due to horrible defenses

Well a couple of positives...

 

If we were better in 2011 we might not have gotten Luke

If we were better in 2012 we might not have gotten Star/KK

 

All three of those are looking like key franchise pieces for the future right now.

Just off hand I think we should have beaten Seattle, KC, ATL, and CHI. We simply didn't have the defense we needed to hold up in the 4th when teams went to the air. We should be totally different this season.

Don't forget Dallas and Seattle

These guys successfully predicted our 2008 season as well.

That being said, it is still a prediction. And predictions are most often wrong.

I forgot about the Dallas game, but I did say Seattle. You know what's weird is that I don't really remember the Dallas game. I watched it last season, and now I have no memory of it for some reason. It's weird.
