we started the season 1 and 4 and every game we lost were blowouts. since then we are 3 and 5 with only 1 loss over 6 points. of the 4 games we lost by 6 or less, 1 was in ot, 1 was in the last seconds of the game, 1 game we were driving for the winning td and fumbled, and 1 we turned the ball over the entire first half before coming back and losing. if we just win to of those games we are 6 and 7. if you took out our first 5 games our scoring defense would ave out to be 7th in the league. thats also considering how porous our offense is and they have given up some of those points off turnovers. i can think of two dc fumble returns for td's. so i think our defense could possible be very good next year. especially if the offense improves. then you have our offense which should be better just because of the better line play im assuming we will have. we have had 3 starters go down and should get at least 1 draft pick to throw into the mix. no matter who starts carr or someone else the qb play should be better because of improved line play. basically an improved line should improve every aspect of our team. i think you guys our overreacting because of some bad losses. this team should threaten for a playoff position next year. and ive never been so bold as to predict a winning record for this team but next year we should make a huge jump. wait and see.
