We aren't good enough to win a Super Bowl at the moment. Hopefully that will change after a good free agency and draft. I want to enter the 2013 season with some swagger and a sense of urgency. Our window of opportunity to win a championship isn't very big. I'd say it has to happen in the next season or two while Andre Johnson is still considered a top three wide receiver in the game. He wasn't even top ten, statistically speaking, before he got super hot during the Jaguars and Lions game last year and set a two-game NFL record for most receiving yards.
We are stuck with Matt Schaub. He's our guy for better or worse. If we were going to make a change we'd have done so last off-season when Peyton Manning had some interest in playing for the Texans. That was a realistic upgrade at the QB position and we failed to pounce on it. So now we have to hope Schaub is capable of leading us to that Lombardi Trophy. If Joe Flacco can do it then certainly Matt Schaub has a chance.
I agree partly with this. Joe Flacco looked like garbage most of the year so they ran Cam Cameron out of town towards the end of the season and come playoff time Flacco started looking like Aaron Rodgers. You can speculate that Flacco just got hot at the right time....but the more likely scenario is that him getting hot at the right time &
the combo of better playcalling were key factors. Kubiak won't change his philosophy until **** is out of hand...by the time the end of the season rolled around, teams knew this and played him accordingly.
