I can't see the playoffs happening for us this year. We really didn't do much to improve ourselves and the division keeps getting tougher.
We didnt do anything to help?
For one, we got Starks who should fill the Tackle void nicely, and our O-line is finally healthy. We go DDUUUCCEE! We got a few corners to fill in. We got rid of Gildon and DW. I agree our division is tough, but I cant see where you say we havent done anything. '05 I think is our year, but Im not giving up hope yet. Oh, and we got BRo. I dont like Baltimore this year only because they cant win without an offense, and I cant see JAmal doing it again. And if Jamal is in jail, oh boy, and Ray on the cover? lets pray
Cleveland IMO didnt do enough, and Cincy I think will be tough to contend with,, but lets hope their inexperience on offense costs them
Ugh, messed up a few times.
Baltimore is the class of the division, bar none. They didn't need an offense when they won the super bowl, what was it 15 consecutive quarters or so they went without scoring an offensive TD that year? I should think their offense is better this year than it is last year. Their defense should be the best in the league this year.
We have the same offensive line we had last year, injured or not, they were porous. How did we help our RB position by getting a 30 year old guy? What's he good for...2 or 3 years tops? We really did nothing to improve our secondary with the exception of grabbing Colclough and he's behind Townsend right now. We still have Chad "I fall down when I'm beat" Scott on the other corner. Now we're throwing Polamalu and Hope in a safety, two guys who are pretty green. There will still be alot of growing pains back there even if they both are good enough.
We'd have to win the division to get into the playoffs since I can't see a wildcard coming out of our division. Not gonna happen. Our non-divisional schedule is extremely tough: @Miami, @Dallas, NE, Philly, Washington, @Jax, @Buffalo will all be tough games.
