    The reason our defense struggled is the same reason most or all defenses struggle......the players didn't play well enough. Usually because they aren't good enough.
    Nothing makes a DC look better than better players.

    thats pretty ridiculous...

    the talent is obviously there
    Fear the name, appreciate the game

    We are good enough (it seems) to be a contender. Are we good enough to be able to put the kind of pressure on opposing QB's that was the most important component of our playoff success? I don't know. The D line is changing. The entire defense is older. And NFL players can deteriorate quickly.
    We went from one of the youngest teams in the NFL to one of the oldest in short order.
    I don't know at all if we are good enough. Lets see what team we field after the draft and after more releases and FA signing happen.

    the difference in today's NFL between 10-6 and 6-10 isn't much.

    our offense is young. our D is what causes some probs.

    This is Tuck's year. If he has a repeat of 11-12....he's useless to us. Our LBs have alwyas been bad, so age doesnt even matter. Ross, and Webster? ehh we'll see how that works out. The D looks rough on paper, man....JPP is the only stud we have at the moment. I hope Prince and some of other younger guys can prove me wrong.

    First of all we have to see how the draft goes. Then we have to see how mini camps go. We also have to see who else we release. We then have to see who we sign. We then have to see who stays healthy through camp.
    THEN....we can have an "indication" of how good our team can be.

    To say that, right now, we have the team to win is silly. Because its un-knowable.
    Last year we were a major disappointment. That we DO know.

    I'll come if someone pays for my ticket.

    I usually pay a -2.7% interest.
