Nice article but I'm homeristically predicting a division win.

After this horrendous off-season, I'll take it!
To me, it's just stupid to predict who will make it to the Super Bowl at this point. It makes a lot more sense to say who might be able to make it there.

Jimmy Johnson had a great line. He said every year the season comes down to ten or twleve teams because the rest of them shoot themselves in the foot and eliminate themselves either through poor personnel decisions, or through some strife. I can't decide whether or not we did enough on the line and at corner not to eliminate ourselves. I'd say we are a borderline "might be able to make it there" team. Of course, it could change if Ziggy turns out to be as unstoppable against other people's lines as he is against ours, because a team could end up having to keep 7 in to block 5, and that would mean that we'd have double teams on all 3 receivers and so the corners wouldn't have to be Revis-like. That would change the dynamics of our defense, and then we'd just be lookinf for a few points out of the offense and looking for them "not to lose" games for us.
