It's shaping up to be the Bucs or Falcons year. I can't help but see us as the NFC West when Seattle made it in the playoffs at 7-9. The Panthers and Saints are obviously declining and the Bucs and Falcons have remained constant. Playing in a relatively weak division should help us but a lot of important pieces are not going to be back.
If we are losing Steve, Lafell, and Ginn. Hixon was on a one year deal. Who the hell is going to play wide receiver. Not only is there a hole there now but it appears like a mudslide, nothing is left.
Really? Coming into the season as division champs, and best record in I cant even remember how long..and we are on the decline??
At this point, everything you mention regarding players is speculation and rumor (not official) And even if we did lose all those players, do you really think Gman would let them walk and replace them with noone?
The man didnt get a big high paying management job because he doesnt know about business. He may be lacking in the Human Resources division (read, holding hands and having a feel good sing around the campfire) but im gonna believe that he knows what he is doing FAR, I repeat FAR better than anyone here commenting on this board.
