I think the Huddle is the most realistic it's ever been since Rhule took over as HC. In the past I would read predictions that were outrageous, but now fans are pretty much on target with W/L predictions. Maybe someone might be interested in digging up the W/L predictions for last season, but I remember a lot of 5 or 6 wins predictions. We're getting very accurate.
So I'll chime in with my prediction for the season. I am expecting 7 or 8 wins if CMC stays healthy. If he is injured, then we're around 6 wins depending on how many games he misses.
Yeah, sadly he just cannot be counted on to play a full season and perhaps not even half a season.
But we are better suited to "replace" him in the lineup than we were.
Ultimately the biggest flaw in Rhule's plan of having a "run first" team is that our franchise RB isn't capable of staying healthy. The second biggest flaw is that we aren't sure we have the OL to dominate in the run game.
The latter issue MAY be somewhat solved. The former is unlikely. We will just have to see what happens in 2022.
