    I have a feeling Jerry's defense might be a whole lot better. If we can clog the middle and stop the run, we know our corners can cover. Im hoping we can really get after the QB then we could be a competitive team. The defense can not be on the field all the time.

    I agree. Moving JJ to DE and having Morgan fit as well are two massive boosts, coupled with Ayers who seems like a day one starter. Also looks like Casey is gonna get alot of playing time.I'm excited about our defense next year.

    Hasselbeck I'm expecting to be alot better than Collins and the emergence of Cookie and hopefully Dwill are the main + points for the offensive. If Munch thinks the O-line can get better run blocking than I believe him.

    The only thing I'm worried about is CJ's contract.......

    If it gets sorted I could see us being 9-7ish which would be great after the debacle of last season and the turnover in staff and players.

    I'm on the same page with you. I'm glad to see all the changes, new players, new changes at practice, etc. Seems like there's a new breeze blowing through and we might just surprise some of the analysts and be a better team than anyone anticipated in the long offseason. GO TITANS!

    I'm happy at the changes but we have a lot of question marks on defense, especially with the line and linebackers.

    I just want to see us adjust in game and not be so one dimensional.

    So another 8-8, 9-7 type season eh? It's like Fisher never left. I don't care to go 8-8 or 9-7...we do not sniff the playoffs doing either IMO. So, I'd prefer a 2-5 win season to get the top pick or top 1-5 pick myself, cause we are going to be pretty bad I think, but I could see us being mediocre as you said if EVERYTHING goes right.

    Fisher said it was the best team he has seen last year.

    Realistically, I'm planning for 4 wins.

    But as a fan, I'm rooting for 16.

    Truthfully I had very low expectations before free agency and those expectations remain low to this day. I see a lot of question marks on both sides of the ball. Its hard to expect much of anything during a rebuilding year. Id be happy to see the team go out and try like they did the 1st 6 weeks of last season. Doing much beyond that would just be a bonus and id be very happy. Given the schedule I don't see more than 5 wins.

    Realistically, I see a 6-10 season. But I think we could also flip that to a 10-6 season.
