    2006 was our year.

    2007 was to be our "other" year.

    2008 let's chalk that up to key injuries.

    Defense has gotten worse. Philip cannot do it all (Dan Marino and the Dolphins anybody).

    I don't see it in 2009. NOT at all. :no:

    We are not going anywhere in the playoffs (if we actually make it)

    Wow. Nice double negative.

    So then we are winning something?

    Welcome to Air Coryell pt 2
    All offense and no defense


    If our team fails to have the offense start hot or at least keep pace with the other team, this is what's going to happen this year. And when we play the Eagles and the Giants and even Cincinnati conceivably we could be in trouble if our offense is either held in check or doesn't get out of the gate fast enough.

    And just like Air Coryell 1.0 in the end it will mean nice stats for Rivers and the wideouts/Gates but it will eventually amount to nothing.

    Look - when you know what you have - just roll with it.

    Enjoy the game for what it is worth and keep this years' expectations in major league check. :bolt:

    It all starts and ends on the lines.

    It's not just the defense either. O-line is having issues and it's not just a recent problem. They weren't very good last year either. They have problems opening up running lanes and protecting Rivers. The thing that worries me the most is the run defense without jamal. Damn. It'll be tough to win games when your defensive front is getting pushed backwards on a continual basis. At this Point I would not be surprised if we finished with only 4-5 wins. Should be at least 4 wins and i'd say at the most 9 wins if Merriman can return back to form.

    We have a double whammy of having a putrid defense and no running game to keep them off the field and keep opposing defenses honest. We need both to improve.

    Two things win in the playoffs. Running the ball and defense.

    The defensive line is literally getting eaten alive. The run defense is non existant which makes the pass defense even worse.

    This team will go 7-9 and maybe 8-8 to win the division again. This was a 4-8 team at one point and we have since lost a DE, a NT, our marginal Center plus Merriman (who I suspect will never return to form) are just collecting paychecks along with LT.

    The O line not protecting Rivers may be one of my greatest concerns. What if Rivers comes down injured? Then we have no running game, no defence and no passing game.

    Rivers right now in my opinion is the Chargers.

    Giants, Tennessee, and the Bengals are good at running the ball. If we don't get our act together there will be 3 more losses. Denver is running good right now as well.
