listen positive ones you can list all the players in the world, but we were still 6-10.
not pessimisticly 6-10, realistically 6-10.
so the fact that we are basically the same team outside of getting some draft picks back from injuries that pretty much still makes them rookies, make for a somewhat glib situation.
am i writing off the season?
no, pooh happens.
but the coaching was not great last year and like i said in my statement we have not addressed the problems we had last year as of yet and an already thin free agent class is pretty much stripped of impact talent now.
so we pretty much have to have a great draft and hope it all comes together.
but that's alot to hope for guys when you look around the league.
san fran beat us 9-3 right and maybe they ridiculously overpaid for some free agents, they still improved a team that was better than us last year.
is that realistic?
Yes, we were 6-10.
Now we are 0-0 ;D.
You say that you are not writing off next year, yet in your original post you say "we are gonna stink".
Sounds like you have pretty much made up your mind already.
Why even play the season? lol.
I will agree when you said that we should start looking forward to 2-3 years from now.
Childress's plan works the way he believes it will, that should be right around the time we make a superbowl run.
You act like the only way to change the roster is through FA.
Draft and trades also make up a large portion of it.
This year's FA was pretty much worthless for us because there were few players that fit in with what Childress is trying to do.
Changing your overall strategy for building a team just because of one thin FA doesn't make sense.
Do I think we are making a superbowl run next year. Of course I do. ;D
But even I take the purple sunglasses off sometimes, and I realistically expect us to be in the 9-7 range.
Each year I expect to improve a little bit until we have forged a new dynasty in the NFC.
I truly believe we are on the verge.
Childress learned a lot in his rookie year.
Our players learned a lot in the new system.
It isn't going to take much to transform our record.
