Honestly though I'm drinkin the kool-aide too... I think many fans feel this way deep down inside...I have the same feeling about this roster as I did at the beginning of the 94 season when we won the Superbowl with Deion Sanders. I feel like there's going to be a lot more blowout games like how we did the Bucs last year.
Right now this team is like a trembling volcano that will explode once Alex Smith shows the world that he can use all the weapons and start dropping long bombs to the WRs....man watch out, I don't think any team is going to be able to match up on all 3 levels (offense, d & ST).
Even Mike Martz said it himself when asked about this year's offense...that it has the potential to replicate the greatest show on turf with all the firepower!
You compare it to GB's offense last year.
They have an amazing QB, Aaron Rodgers... the best in the league. He carried the team. They have talented WRs no doubt and a decent TE who will probably get better and better.
But they were one dimensional... at least last year - not so much the year before. But that being said, they weren't a great running team by far. They were average. James Starks and Ryan Grant are decent backs... they would be cut if they were on this team. Cedric Benson - again... decent back but they have no RB depth.
This team will be a throwback team. Tough running game - wearing the defense down and enough weapons on the outside to keep the defense honest.
Alex Smith is the best QB in the NFL when it comes to turnovers and if that stat stays consistant... man. Look out.
