    Volek makes us a different team. I say anywhere between 4-12 and 9-7. I'm much more optimistic than w/ McNair.

    A 6-7 win season, with some competitive wins or loses, would be a HUGE improvement for a team that couldn't anything but teams ****tier then us. If the defense and o-line show improvement, I'll be happy. If some leadership develops on both sides, from young players, I'll be even happier. I expect both of this to happen next year.

    Brian, I agree that it will be nice to see a guy at center that knows what he is doing and won't get knocked into the backfield whenever someone plays on his nose.

    We all know that Olson and Pillar are slugs and I think that was a major problem last yr because when they tried to pull they were slow getting to the hole and thus clogged the area. Bell did a much better job the yr before of being able to get to the 2nd level and seal off the LBs. I wonder if the guards will have less pulling assignments given that Mawae is so skilled at it.

    Thoughts II

    Apologies to anyone who previously responded legitimately to this thread:

    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 choking away 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.

    Brian's original post was a serious thread with some good discussion underway. Unfortunately, it turned into smack and was moved to Smack Central. I welcome all who wish to continue a serious football discussion to do so here. Those wishing to talk smack can do so in Smack Central.

    Any of the admins could have moved the smack into a different thread and saved the rest to preserve the thread (just for future problems like that). I've done that a few times.

    And apparently, I can bring them back from the dead, too... [​IMG]

    I've got a thought. How about we give Jacksonville a run for their money.
    Let's drink the kool aid and think big. Everyone contributes, everyone wins, injury bugs are exterminated.

    Go Titans!
