Go to youtube. There are fans of other teams saying we’re the next big team.
And, there are a lot of talking heads that are warming up, if not drinking the Koolaid.
The level of disrespect is lower than it’s been in a very long time.
Most are citing, 1) Holmes drafts, 2) Campbell and his player/coaches and their authenticity.
We’ve had two great drafts in a row, and have added the right personalities in FA and the draft.
Dang I hope that doesn’t happen. My boss lives in Philadelphia and is a big Eagles fan. I had to sit through that drubbing last year at Ford field. I’ve been talking shit to him ever since that we are going to beat the hell out of them. If they do get throttled by the Eagles I’m not sure how much more I could take.
I think we’ll have a legit top 15 offense IF the OL/Goff stay healthy.
I think what’s really gonna determine how we do is how improved is the defense? Will those 2nd year guys step up? will Charles Harris continue where he left off last year? Will key additions of Elliot and Board improve the back 7? Will Hutch be the guy we hope he’ll be from the get go? Will we be able to actually stop the run with McNeil and a bunch of undersized DTs and an unproven LB core? Can our CBs stay relatively healthy and will the real Okudah please stand up? That’s just to name a few.
Will we be able to actually stop the run with McNeil and a bunch of undersized DTs and an unproven LB core?
That is my biggest concern going into the season. DT’s and linebacker play to stop the run. If we can’t stop the run, it’s going to be another long season. Huge improvements by Levi, Alim and Barnes are needed for this defense to turn a corner.
