    I may have said this last year, but this year, even though its early and we still have a few pieces to add, I feel real confident about this team this year!

    How about you guys?

    I've had a feeling for the last 5 years...then the pills wore off and I remembered Norv is still here.

    I feel better about this year's team than I did about last year's team. That will have no impact on our W-L record, or playoff performance however.

    I think were a contender for the playoffs.. I would love to play the Patriots.. I just want one win against them in the playoffs before they bury me.. and for Phillip to conquer *** boy Brady..

    But in the future as well, hopefully Liuget pans out well, and Ingram, Reyes, and Taylor as well. Looking at 3 solid players there for the future and add in Thomas, Martin, Butler, Weddle, Gilchrist, and hopefully Wright or if Cason can turn it around.

    Call me a homer but me too.

    I know I'm being optimistic but I'm going to expect the OLine to play like the end of '11 and not the beginning. That alone would make a huge difference.

    I'm also expecting the same of Gates. Honestly, I thought his career was largely done with the toe injury... and that was long before last season. But he looked great (and consistent) as the season ended. I'm going against my previous predictions and saying the chronic injury is behind him.

    We will miss Jackson but with our WR additions in the off season and Gates' health improving, I think we'll have a more well rounded passing game. (I actually don't remember when we last had a better set of position appropriate receivers.) Less explosive, mind you, but now with a complement of receivers who have different skill sets. I'm hoping this will help with the Offense stalling out in the first half of games with the boom or bust passing strategy.

    Additions at LB. Love the addition of Johnson. Ingram is not going to be an English.

    The Dline is still a question mark. I wish we had a ProBowl monster up front. We don't. I'm hoping Reyes can be increment up how the Dline is playing. Just a little bit so our depth at LB can shine.

    It's funny. Looking back at what I wrote, I realized much of it is based on offseason moves. I love that they were made but until they pan out on the field, they're just on paper. But hey, I'm a fan. If I can't be excited by some good personnel moves in the offseason then I'd be a pretty poor one.

    Edit: Oh wait. Norv. :(

    I too think this team is better than last year and have high hopes but we also kinda sucked last year so that's not sayin much.

    My glass is always half full! I think we added some good players this off season, I don't see us making as many stupid mistakes, and I don't see us getting destroyed by injuries again. We battle Kansas City for the division!

    Since the season hasn't started, I am optimistic, but have had my joy crushed on day one more than once.

    Haha Im always thinking "alright this is our year!" I always get excited to hear analyst on ESPN or NFL Network pick the Chargers to go all the way (and every year they do) I also say "Pfffffff what the hell does this guy know?!?!?!?!" anytime they pick Denver or KC over them as the better team.

    As the year gets closer I know my opinion will change but as of now I hope to remain under the radar, if you look at our free agency we killed it we got all the right pieces a record 21 players! (should be a record at least) but because we didn't sign an all that exciting player we stayed under the radar, we'll let the Broncos and Buccaneers have their time in the light on this one.

    Our draft was arguably the best draft by any team that doesn't have a cat on the side of their helmet, but because we didn't do anything exciting like move up and trade away picks it wasn't exciting to report. Even though we could have landed the best and most dangerous defensive player in this draft so again we stay under the radar.

    My point being every year we're picked to go to the Superbowl and every year we fail. the team that does go to the S.B. if you look at it is always that team that nobody suspects. except for the exception of New England and the Steelers (Those F-ing guys are in it what seems to be every year) but the Cardinals, Giants, Packers, Saints are al the teams that snuck in
