to go 6-10 in a worthless, pointless season would be devestaing when Luck is on the board. But I somewhat agree, It's very obvious from the Saints game we are farther behind the curve then anyone of us imagined so it will be a slow start and get better as season goes but I think it'll end in 3-4 wins, not 6. I don't think we have the team to get the free wins sans the seahawks inter division that we typically get and I think out of division it'll be what it was for our division last year. Division teams looked like one thing vs each other, crap vs everyone else.
I think this season all bets are off, that Saints game reaffirmed one thing for me. Who in the world thought that Alex Smith, if he was capable of being sucessful in any system int he first place, could be sucessful in a west coast offense? He doesn't have the accuracy nor the vision to make the blitz killing throw, he never has....I understood the whole use him as a bridge qb to some extent but I think it would have served us better to pursue an Orton as a bridge qb. I'd give a 2nd round pick to get a year or two of leeway to develop/find our franchise qb
