I'm thinking 9-7, give or take a game or two. We have a tougher schedule, but I do expect a better team especially on offense. Simms looked very good late in the season and will get better, same goes for Alex Smith. Caddy is going to be our horse again. Clayton will be healthy(hopefully). And the line is finally resembling a quality NFL offensive line. Buenning is a stud, and Joseph better be to warrant that pick
. Davis is a great run blocker and can be servicable pass blocking when we run the ball effectively. Center should be solid, but I'm not expecting much out of RT. Yatta is a disappointment, and people are too high on Trueblood.
Defense...Monte, nuff said. He'll guarantee us a top ten defense and keep us in games when the offense disappoints.
I must say though, I want to look away when we face those top teams(Pittsburgh, Seattle, Cincy). It could get ugly.
