Default What were your expectations for this year?

I know there have been some hard losses to swallow, but what were some of the things you guys/gals were expecting in 2006?

i told my self i would be happy with just more wins, cause that means we got better, but i had hoped for 6-10, or 7-9, i can see 6-10 still being possible, but 7-9 would be real hard

4 wins, no more. A better running game too, but you can never call when DD will be hurt.

My expectations ululated like a raft in a hurricane. The Miami expectation seems about right. I didn't think we could win two games after our sickening 0-3 start. Then our rooks started playing better, the D started playing better, and we learned to win without depending on the passing game.

<heavy sigh>

I thought we'd fall somewhere between 6-10 and 8-8. Thought we'd sweep the Tacks. Thought we'd split with the Jags.

Thought we'd draft Reggie Bush.

Never thought we'd hit a homerun like we did with DeMeco Ryans.

It all evens out in the end, I suppose.

</heavy sigh>

Hoped for 8-8, but expected 5-6 wins. We could still win another one this season.

I thought we could reach 6-10. But with the Pat's & Colts up next, I don't think that will happen. I do think the team has played better overall this year. We've lost alot of close games this year. To me it seems like this team plays harder than last years & they don't seem to give up like last years. But I'm sure we all hope for me.

I expected our defense to keep vy in check and not let him run a 40 for 6 on us. That is some hard stuff right there. Next year I will expect the same thing plus keep bush in check.

Default Re: What were your expectations for this year?

I expected 5-6 wins, hoped for 6, since the over/under in Vegas was 5.5 games. We can still get there, but it's highly unlikely now. I expected a bit more out of the offensive line, but injuries have hit hard. Carr was doing a lot better earlier in the year when the O-line wasn't quite as dinged, even though they weren't stellar at the time. Unfortunately, when Carr was doing OK, the defense was terrible (to historical proportions). The defense has progressed, which is nice to see, but the offense has regressed as the injuries have piled up. A couple nice waiver wire pickups in Dalton and Maddox have kept the defense somewhat respectable (man, our standards are low .... /sigh).

Overall, about where we are now.

Default Re: What were your expectations for this year?

If the defense hadn't been as bad early on as it was, or if the team had a few less injuries....

I really thought an 8-8 season was achievable. I didn't think last year's team was as bad as the record they produced. I thought the play was uninspired last year because the boys had had enough of Dom, Fangio, and company.

This year I see a lot of desire, heart, and no quit in this team. That's encouraging, but they keep coming up short.

It would be nice if they could make the playoffs next year, but that is probably also a pipe dream. There is no telling what this team is going to look like next year. If McNair agreed to skip the "traditional" player introductions, then he probably realizes he has at least one player (and I'm not going to start with that) that has worn his welcome here on both sides of the ball.

I said at the beginning of the season 4/12, but I did not expect us to own the Jags this year. WTG Texans, we do own a team, rather they like it or not...

I have to say that, no matter what else happens, it puts a really big smile on my face when we beat the Jags

When we beat other teams, I am happy, but it's not like beating the Jags!
