For me, in that offseason, I was psyched, just like I am now. I thought we were going to turn the corner and have our first winning season even though I had misgivings about the draft. I was surprised by the Travis Johnson pick. I don't even want to talk about the Buchanon deal. But I was excited by the Jerome Mathis pick (although I thought we got him a little early.)

But, honestly, I wasn't following the team as closely as I do now. I was mostly just watching the games and watching the draft.

The difference is that we've been 8-8 two seasons in a row now. We've got a stronger, more solid base of players. We finished the season strong as opposed to tanking. I think we had another good draft and we didn't make any silly trades.

I think there are a lot of differences between this offseason and the offseason after the 7-9 season and before the dark abyss of pain that was the 2-14 season.
good post, thanks

I don't know how I screwed that up.
