Realistic Expectations for this season

I expect that this will be a frustrating season.

A good win here and there, a terrible loss to a beatable team now and then.

Close to making the playoffs.

Still, a losing record...

Much furor amongst the fans.

I picked 10-6 in the PYMWYMI topic and I am sticking to it?

Gloom and doom came in incriments:

1) Season-ending injury for one of our better corners in Harris.
2) Retirement of expected OT depth in Smith
3) Injury of our deep threat in Jones
4) Neither QB looking great in pre-season while playing with starters
5) Pass rush still looks iffy
6) Unknown injury to Ahmad Brooks who looks better at pass-rushing than Manny Lawson
7) Arnez Battle possibly beating out Josh Morgan at WR
8) Tazer tricking no one
9) Barry Sims at OT

Despite all of this, I'm still hoping for the best. Seriously I am.

those situations are what separate winners from losers.
Until the 3rd pre-season game, i was feeling pretty optimistic and almost cocky; but after watching our "vanilla" defense allow Romo to sit in the pocket all day.
I have a feeling our D is going to wear down and allow teams to run us off the field. Once again, i hope i'm wrong, but now i'm preparing for a 7 win season.

Oh- one more piece of rant... i know we were a couple short on the o-line, but if that's what we have to look forward to in pass protection-- frustrating.
11 wins!!!

Anything can happen if we have a top 10 defense!!!!!!!!!!!

Just like Baltimore did just let the D score all the points.
At least the Lions made sure we wouldn't be the first team to an 0-16 season.

There is that to be optimistic about.

Yes, but Baltimore had a D that could pressure a QB and God forbid sack him.
