The NFL is a very tough league. Every team has stars and every team is good. I don't get all the mania, but it will never end. Most of the more astute fans have said on more than one occasion that we will be an improved team but a team that is at or around .500
You have to be very good to be average in the NFL. The jump from "good team" to elite team is the hardest jump to make. We are trying to jump from one of the worst to "good" this year. We are on our way. Anyone who makes too much out of the preseason either doesn't understand the dynamic of the NFL mentality when it comes to team assembly or has not been a fan of the league very long.
