I'm going on the lim and saying 11-1. And this is why, we have a very physical line on both sides of the ball. The only sack was when Bates got out of the pocket. And our D-line a thing of beauty, I mean 3 picks you monsters. QBs look very good for a first game, no picks. WRs all I have to say Sedrick Johnson WOW. And for anyone who questioned our defense, come on I haven't seen that much heart and jaw dropping hits since the early 80's. I believe that this is a year it's all on the fans shoulders. That was the only weakness I saw, I mean you do not stop yelling for these boys who worked hard in the offseason for you. And don't sit on your *** when it's first and second down then stand up on third, rule of wrist is that you stand & scream you head off when the defense is on the field. Then when the offense comes out you stay standing. These are new times and by god I do not want this team to turn into the late 80's teams with no heart and no belief.
I agree with you for the most part , but what worries me about the D-line is that the lack pentration .I don't have a stat for it but I don't remember us getting a sack on a o-line that was under sized compared to what we'll see in the games to come. We did knock there QB around but it was always a little too late. That right there along with how well there back ran on me does have me worried about our D-line!!!
I just wanna add...heart transplants and recoveries never happen overnight. It's a long process of pain, setbacks and rehabilitation. We're somewhere between setback and rehab. It'll be a while until we're running at full speed.
Trying to expect too much too soon would explode our new heart and it would be quite tough to get on the donor list again. :)
