We sucked last year and lucked into the 3rd pick. There were 4 other teams that finished 4-12 last year (SF, GB, NYJ, Oak). Three of them won their last game. (SF beat the Texans who were tanking games left and right. GB beat Seattle who was resting for the playoffs. And the Jets beat the Bills. We picked before all of them. I'm not holding my breath, but if Schwartz gets his head out of his *** I think the defense will be much improved. Good FA signings and maturing DL and CB groups mean that the defense can lead this team. I think Volek can hold it down for 6 weeks. If he goes 3-3 or better, the season will be his. If not, Vince might be ready to take over after the bye. The Givens signing means we have two reliable WR's. Aside from 2004, the team really hasn't had that since Warren Moon was the QB. At TE I like what Kinney does and I'm hoping that Troupe breaks out. Sorry, he's a decent player but Sciafe doesn't really impress me. He'll lose touches to Givens.....I hope. At RB I think Brown is the man for now, but he's got to be on a short leash. If he starts the season getting dinged, he'll find the bench and Henry will get his shot. White is the future. I think the new look on the O-line will spark the team. I can't tell you how great I think the Mawae signing was. Finally, a center who knows what the f he's doing!!! Benji is a gamer. Piller is a moron, but I think Mawae will help him in a lot of ways. Hopefully Roos settles in on the left side, and one of the young guys steps up on the right. I see light.
