I agree about the margin of victory. All it takes is one or a few players to be out of synch with the team, or just a few bone-headed mistakes in key situations and a competitive team goes to .500.

I agree with you both 100%. That was essentially what I was suggesting. I realize I am likely 'overright confident'. I am just at piece with that.

Lol no thats not what I meant. Im just saying that we have a better QB and as many 'stars' give or take, though theyre a fairly young team and we arent. But theyre a good example of not needing to be the best to have success. Good Coaching doesnt hurt ;).

They also need to quit bringing old players back....

we were a play or 2 here and there from being in the playoffs. qb was hurt back half of the year.

Are you out of your mind? You're asking this fanbase to be REASONABLE! It's much easier to overreact and panic simultaneously.
