    We are competitive enough to beat any team on the schedule but young/flawed enough to lose to any team on the schedule.

    It makes it exciting, but pretty stressful!

    We kind of almost screwed ourselves finishing second in the division. Instead of getting to play the Jets Lions and Jaguars we got the Colts Bears and Dolphins. Definitely harder games based off last season and this projected season.

    Iím not sure weíve done enough to get over the hump and into the playoffs. Hard to have faith in the latest player acquisitions when itís been proven the guy(s) in charge have gotten it wrong far more often than right.

    I think we're better than last year. Question is.....can we play better? If the D can force at least 2 more punts per game over last year, then we have a shot.

    My concern is that we find out that we are statistically better than last year, but still behind the curve as far as the rest of the NFL goes. Lots of tough teams got better this offseason, at least on paper.

    That's a interesting viewpoint because every team in the division got better. I dont know much of what the other teams did but I know the chiefs and chargers packed they're lines. The Raiders have focused on building the lines though but know one knows how they'll play

    Every year it seems as if most teams got better. Because they do. As population increases in the US, and the development of youth increases, talent levels will increase. Especially if the number of teams remains constant.

    But, it is not as notable of a difference as it may seem. Mostly the issue is we are comparing what the team looks like on paper now, to what it ended up as last year. Well, most teams have very few injuries right now. Injuries deplete rosters tremendously.

    Also, draft picks all have value right now. Last year we were excited about how our picks could contribute. Some disappointed. Some didnít even last on our team. So while it may seem like teams improved, until they play the games, itís all speculation.
