Right now we are the same team that lacked a pass rush last year. We aren't sure if our our best WR Bruce will be back or not. Then I factor in both Hill and Smith will be competing and neither of these two excites me very much. I can see some signs that we are maybe getting close to having a winning season again but right now I gotta go with 9-7 and hope that we will find a way to get a little bit more. I am counting on the defense to start out quickly where they left off last season with their simplified 3-4 cause the offense could possibly start out slow again under Raye. We have had too many losing seasons for me to get overly jacked up again this early.
With my expectations at a reasonable level I can always hope for something slightly better from my team ------ I would love to be surprised with a better record.
