Realistic Expectations For Upcoming Season

We may as well abandon the season and take next year's number 1 draft pick if you believe the so called NFL experts. I don’t see it that way, I think we are a team on the up and we will surprise a lot of people this year, particularly on defence. But what will constitute a good season?

I could run through all the intangibles but we all know them all backwards. If everything goes our way and every player steps up, stays healthy and does the business, I still think it will take a miracle just to make the playoffs. An 8-8 season would be an unbelievable achievement in my opinion.

I know we all want to be successful but realistically what do we really expect from the coming season?

I personally want to see us be more competitive and to see the guys we have drafted look like they can be the future of the franchise, so I can have confidence that we are heading in the right direction. I obviously want to see us win more games but if we don’t I won’t count it as a disaster, if the young guys look good and the more significant free agent signings like Nick Roach and Vance Walker prove to be quality signings.

But what do others think. Will another 4-12 season be unacceptable. What if it is worse. And if we do get the 1 pick, does that put Reggie, never mind DA, under threat. I welcome your views.
