I don't think the "sky is falling", but I don't expect a dramatic improvement in the team either. Last season hardly seemed "solid" to me. The team had several "give up" games and then ended on that wonderful 'high note' against the Browns at home. I don't necessarily equate that with "Huge Improvemnts across the board", given that the 2003 Texans played BOTH Superbowl contenders close (beating one and taking the other to OT).

We've made no dramatic changes to the O-Line & TE positions, despite glaring needs on both. How no changes = improvement is a concept I'm having trouble wrapping my mind around. Is it possible that the line improves in time (like wine) into a finer product than it was before? Perhaps, though it may just as likely end up being vinegar! :brickwall

For the record, letting Sharper go wasn't an issue with me (I felt we needed more speed at the position), but I'd really have felt better with Glenn in the house as a mentor to D-Rob and P-Buch.

I think there is some middle ground in the Chicken Little and the Homer positions. Last year we were coming off a year where we were statistically one of the worst in football in many areas. Last season we were productive enough to climb into the middle ranks when it came to offensive production, and had the shot at the .500 year going into week 17 as a 3rd year start up expansion team. If you don't see progress from a paper thin squad as a 2nd year team that was the worst offensive team in the NFL then that is your perogative. I think you have good right to question the team, but we just donít see eye to eye - and that is fine. The answers start to unfold in a few months.

What is wrong with all of the haters? I don't see why we can't consistently beat the jags, why, just because they had a better record than us? I don't think so. If you look back, the Jags had won nearly to all of their games only by a short margin and at least four of them that I know of for sure by a touchdown or less in the last seconds of the game. To me that shows that there is a certain level of luck that goes in to that, it is not always skill that will prevail sometimes you have to just have some things fall our way, and personally I think we are due!!!!!

There are times when I read posts on these boards and wonder of I am really on the home site for a 4TH YEAR expansion team, I simply love all of the postitivity. If we were the Bengals, Bears or Cardinals- teams who have pretty much sucked for about a decade, one or two seasons excluded- I could understand, but most of this is ridiculous.

NE had a CB that was a WR-won a championship in '05
NE had no Dillon- won a championship in '04
TB had no premier safeties-they won one
NE again-they has a QB contoversy, tuck rule, and started the season something like 1-4 and won it all
Rams-QB was from the arena league, 1st dome team to win one
Den-they were actually solid from top to bottom and both of theirs


I can go on and on. What we need to is to play to our strength.
If the left side is lacking then go right more often, we got the RB's to make guys miss
If we need a better TE, then let's see if the tinkered/timing routes help. I bet it does.
Coleman is gonna surprise everyone this season.
Sick peek on the QB every play as opposed to having him cover FB's & TE's.
Spread out the D by going 5 wide often to keep 'em honest.
