As I recall, early last offseason we were 15 million over the cap with gaping holes on the roster, no winning seasons since 2008 and a coach who was on the hot seat.
From that point, we went to 12-4, a division championship, a playoff game and several pro bowlers.
I'd say it's definitely way too early to know anything definitive.
I would be careful making comparisons to last offseason. We were coming off a losing season for one, and still started 1-3. Just how much of a part did the leadership that we've recently lost play a part in that turnaround by the way? People can downplay it, but we know better.
