    I'm just glad neither of you guys are involved inside of our orginization in any way other than just a fan on a website. This type of attitude leads to exactly what it is. If you guys did work inside of our orginization I would hope that you were fired, this type of attitude can spread in any type of orginization or business. Some would call them leaches even effecting a fan base.

    Nice prediction, but I don't expect it to be the Colts rather the Patriots. Your signature definitly contradicts your recent posts. Maybe your confused?

    you never know in football..an injury here, an injury there, and boom, you are 4-12
    People who see life as anything more than pure entertainment are missing the point.

    I agree Jackson has no more excuses. But I don't agree he was provided with the best pass protection,solid receivers, or a proven system.And the jury is still out on coaching.
    I see this team as one that might make the playoffs. Anything beyond that would surprise me.

    But if we do see solid protection,receivers, coaching and scheme. The sky is the limit. And Tarvaris should have a breakout year!
    I like your post for the most part but "Might make the playoffs" isn't gonna cut it. Last year we should have easily made the postseason with
    the guys we had. Throw in the mix Jared Allen, Madeu Williams, Thomas Topeh, Tyrell Johnson, Bernard Berrian a Healthy Sidney Rice and Antonie Winfied and look out we're coming at em hard. Tarvaris completed his first season with us at helm along with a few other rookies of the "system".

    Imo I think we should be expecting SB. Of course its best to take things one day at a time but when you look at the whole picture and the amount of talent on our team there is no reason to believe otherwise unless your one of those fans that decides its best to avoid hype because of past let downs that have nothing to do with the future.

    I definitly agree with you when you say we need to get everyone on the same track, only then can we really see what Tarvaris is all about and what he can do. The physical talent is in place and if guys like Childress and Birk are right about him when they he is smart, big things are too come.
    Gotta disagree with ya bit here TW.

    Last year we had to many young guys playing in key positions (not just QB) to be consistent enough to warrant a playoff berth.
    Hell, most on here were talking about another 6-10 season and firing the Chiller.

    As with last year, we still have alot of 2nd year players in key positions that will also contribute to some inconsistency.
    Hopefully not as much as we saw last year, but it will be there none-the-less.

    Playoffs yes, but to expect SB this year is a bit of a reach even for me (Mr. Optimism).

    I don't think it is impossible at all if the staff is a good one.

    We are always going to have young guys at key positions. Heck, the G-men won the SB last year with what, 4 rookies on the team?

    We can do it.

    I agree that you will have young guys at "A few" key positions, but seriously, do you really believe that our situation is the same as the Giants?

    Hell, at QB alone TJ is less experienced.
    Then add to that the fact that our 2nd best WR is Rice (2nd year), our RT (2nd year), Primary Backup at S (Rookie), LB (Chad) will be playing for his second year, etc etc etc.

    I expect the staff will have them competitive every week (during a tough schedule) and I expect them to get to the playoffs, but to really "Expect" to get to the SB this year with this cast of characters is a nice dream but not very realistic.

    Now come talk to me prior to the 2009/2010 season I will be expecting a goal of that nature.

    Well stated. Addition of a few good players doesn't automaticly vault an 8-8 team into the equivalent of the Patriots.
    I think they will get there also. But I'm going to let them prove something before I jump on a superbowl bandwagon.

    Remember, I am one of the most optimistic guys on this site.
    If I see issues, everyone else should as well, you would think.
