Default Your reason for optimism

Most posters seem to be optimistic concerning this coming season. What one thing makes you feel this way? Wade Phillips having a longer off season to impart more of his 3-4, 2012 draft, more confidence in players such as Watt, Barwin, Reed? Result of last season despite injuries (next player up: backups)? Confidence of Kubiak that he has made playoffs and got that monkey off his shoulders? Your thoughts?

Besides the fact that it's March 27th, I'd say it's because tomorrow is March 28th.

Default Re: Your reason for optimism

My optimism (still) is due to the state of the AFC South. The Colts are rebuilding. The Jags are clueless. And the Titans are exceedingly average. Much like the Texans of 2007-2010. Despite the "Texodus" of the offseason, The Texans have the more talented team and more experienced coaching staff.

I tend to agree although I'm concerned about the right side of the offensive line. People keep saying Rashad Butler and Antoine Caldwell have been working hard this off-season so we'll see if they can live up to the starting role at RG and RT.

Defense getting a full off-season to learn the entire system. Don't forget Wade didn't plug everything in last year because of the limited time to implement the new 3-4. Our defense should be #1.

The Defense survived (and got stronger) last season w/o Mario and a weakened DeMeco. Barring injuries, they should easily be a "top 10" defense.
