Let's look at the teams that we beat last season:
Ok, so besides the Cards, what do the rest of those teams have in common? they couldn't score. Jimmy Raye was only able to outscored teams with some of the worst offenses and defenses in the league. That is worrisome. To add to that, alot of our key players on defense all of a sudden started to smell their own s**t after an 8-8 (pathetic) season. If these players start the season feeling themselves too much then we'll be in for a rude awakening IMO. Whiz and his staff is still alot more experienced and efficient than Singletary. Also, Pete Carroll will improve the Seahawks.
I guess if you think our offense will show zero improvement over 2009 then yeah, you shouldn't expect a division championship.
As for your comments on the defense, I just don't see it . . . at all. The defensive players on our roster will not get complacent because they think they're so great . . . not on Singletary's watch.
On the rest of the division, I think AZ lost way too much to hold it together . . . and Carroll might improve things in Seattle, but it's my guess his players are already casting a wary eye at him because he obviously made the jump to the NFL only to escape a sinking ship at USC.
