Why would 2021 be year 1? What was 2020? Can’t say Brown and Chinn are part of the rebuild without 2020 being year 1. Was it a full rebuild let’s not waste money on Teddy, Okung, Short, Apple, Weatherly or Roberts, nope, but it was still the start. We just realize Teddy wasn’t our future but the D rebuild was 100% underway last year.
Also, I know I said we wouldn’t contend in 2021 and I meant contend as in SB win. I still think that. I think we’ve shown we can make the playoffs if things break our way but I don’t think we can win it all.
I do think after beating Houston, NO at home and the Jets, it’s a little premature to gloat like you are right. We are competitive but what does that mean? We were competitive last year. We came close to beating GB and KC who were 2 of the final 4 teams, but we weren’t a contender.
