    "supposed to win"? You realize those teams see us as an easy "should win" game too, right?

    Well, the initial thought was to draft Murray in the 4th. Now it seems teams are starting to figure it out, and he could go in the 2nd.

    If we want him, we'll need to either take him in the 2nd or trade back in the 1st or 2nd to pick up an extra 3rd and hope he's still available.

    All in all, I agree. Must take one in the 1st or 2nd.

    Perhaps TitanJeff could create a sportsbook bet based on this?

    And other season bets for the team, like passing yards, rushing yards, sacks, turnovers etc.

    That's because Vegas, like me, is being rational and is not a homer. Look at our schedule. We will be lucky to win 1 of those first 4 games! Open your eyes, this team is worse than last years as of right now. Regardless if we have better coaching or not.

    Rational?

    Says the guy who still believes/claims VY's inability to get a job with an NFL team is due to Jeff Fisher, essentially, blacklisting him.

    The opening schedule is tough, but this team without questions is already better than last year. Why you ask?! Well, for starters, we have coaches that know what the F they are doing and prove it with their past/resumes. Secondly, CJ is gone. His crappy effort, lack of leadership, and the team's #1 focus is no longer a focus. They have also added more depth. If they have a good draft, they could contend. I don't see them being 10-6 or anything, but I see them at least as a .500 team.

    That played a part but is not the entire reason.

    Really, we're worse you say?

    We're returning 4 out of 5 linemen vs just 2 last year.
    Jake Locker has another year under his belt.
    No Chris Johnson to strangle the run game. No Kenny Britt to drop 3rd down passes. (addition by subtraction)
    We have a real deal play caller in Whisenhunt. Loggains "21 blast right" play up the middle on 3rd & 1 every 3rd & 1 is a thing of the past. Things are looking good man, wake up, you dont want to miss this.

    Then on defense there's no Jerry Gray and his reactive scheme, Horton's attack style will do wonders for us. Took the Browns from 23rd to 9th in defense.

    Special teams, no Darius Renaud making boneheaded moves. We have several quality KR's to choose from.

    The knocks on us as of now are no No.1 RB, and no kicker. I also question if our starting NT is on the roster, but thats just 3 holes to fill with 6 draft picks, easy work really.
