Of course some here would just be happy with making the playoffs. I guess 10 years of getting sand kicked in you're face will do that to some.
Although you got a point, I will still try to argue with you here a litte:
We also were bad against the run, because we had to give the secondary all the help we could get. We were bad at getting at the QB because he could get rid of the ball within 2-3 seconds. That all should improve with our new guys.
And don`t forget, Watt, Reed and Barwin should improve us against the QB - Watt and Ryans against the run.
And yes - me, IŽd be perfectly happy with just making the playoffs. Get that out of the way this season, and let`s attack the SB next season.
