ME TOO!

Here's a quote from Winston that I heard second hand on LZ's AM show this morning:

"We're going to be dominate in the run game. We're gonna run right f...in' over people"

Yeah, I'm pretty excited about this season and the potential nastiness and dominance of both lines!

Me too! It all starts in the trenches doesn't it? For too long, we have been too soft and passive on the lines, especially on O. That's about to change. Although the zone scheme is a bit of a finesse scheme, I still expect the Pillsburry dough boy routine to stop. Rarely do you see teams with poor lines do well, no matter how much other talent they have. I like that this braintrust has made it a point to build from the inside out. Kudos to Rick Smith, Kubes, and company.

I think most people forget that Schaub has some experience with Gibbs .So look for some great playaction fakes. I assume he was paying attention more than Vick, lol.

I think the potential is there for us to have a very good run game but it looks like we have more IFson that side of the ball than we do on defense this coming season. Just think how good we COULD be IF either Brown or Green don't miss a game due to an injury and IF D. Brown is what we hope he is, and IF Schaub stays healthy, and IF Gibbs is who we think we are. I have a good feeling about the what ifs but I have felt good about them before. BUT for right now, yes I am excited.

I agree. We have more potential than in the past and a couple less "if's" but, we still have several "if's" as mentioned above. If everything falls into place, it could be a very exciting year! I am excited about Duane Brown's potential and I'm soooo glad we didn't trade Sage. The RB's still worry me ...... I hope Chris Taylor can regain form and stay healthy and hold onto the ball. And I hope they give Darius Walker a true chance, too.

I like the RB situation. When one "if" gets hurt, we put in another "if," and another, and another. We'll just "if" them to death, lol.

Yeah, in theory I agree with you but, most of our "if's" here are over the hill, injury prone players or young unproven talent. Here's to elevating the young unproven talent!

Me too, Joe. Me too. Honestly, I'm excited about the start of every football season... but I just think we're going to be contenders this year, so I'm really pumped up. Our schedule looks tough - but really, you never know how teams are going to change from year to year. If we can just pull through that first stretch of games with our heads still on, and without much injury - I think we're going to look good.

I'm actually pretty confident that we're going to have an excellent offense. Gibbs has been great in almost every season he's used this system... and there's just no way we're going to have as many injury problems as last season... so offensively I'm feeling pretty good.

The defense - THAT is what I'm most excited about. I just can't wait to see how Mario will continue to improve, and how Amobi will also step his game up... and I really think we're poised to have one of the better linebacker corps in the game. We just have a ton of straight up ATHLETES at LB, and a couple of guys in DeMeco and Colvin who are bona fide playmakers... and maybe a couple of the younger guys will become playmakers as well.

Anyway- I'm going on and on here... but I wanted to say, I'm generally a pretty pessimistic guy, but I'm really, really excited about football. I can't wait.

But that's what makes them "ifs." If our "ifs" weren't "over the hill" and if our "ifs" weren't injury prone and if our "ifs" weren't young unproven talent, they wouldn't be "ifs" at all! Comprende?

"If if and buts were candy and nuts......."

This is true, but we've always been a bit of an "if" team, so it's a state-of-mind I'm used to! I am excited about the season, as well. It can't come soon enough!

I couldn't be more excited about our team this year with all the RB's that we have and the pass rush D. I'm pumped to see if Matt does more play action pass. Hopfully the O line will hold up pretty nicely for us.
