First. I say we are a young team. Let's just continue to play great football. Let's just keep getting better. Let's just keep improving.
In that vein, I say, let's keep spanking whomever we play until the season ends by either a playoff loss, or a Super Bowl victory.
Second. As much as I hate not being optimistic. I just cannot wrap my head around us making a solid Super Bowl run this year. I see a team capable of the feat. I just see a long history of young teams needing a try or two before they break through. I think we have the team to make a run, I just don't think you should underestimate playoff experience.
Lastly. As been noted. Our slow start is also working against us at the moment. Another reason to believe we are just not quite ready.
But hellz, what do I know. I would be happy as punch to be wrong.
We are better in almost every way than the 2003 Super Bowl team except for one fatal flaw, we can't complete passes downfield, 15 yards past the line of scrimmage. It will be tough to win a playoff game if the middle of the field isn't open and the run game isn't working. We need speed! and receivers who can separate, and Cam needs to develop a bit more to not be afraid to take those shots
