    I just don't think it's too crazy to believe we can make the playoffs this year and the AFC is going to be laughably weak aside from NE and Denver. When you get into the post season anything can happen. I'm not exactly expecting a Superbowl appearence but I wouldn't be shocked.

    Here's what my train of thought has always been regarding when a team can make its run.

    It takes 2 years to be the team you hope to be. Look at the 49er's, perfect example. In 2011 they came 1 game shy of their goals, the year after, made it to the big dance. (Obviously this isn't always the case, but its a proven thing)

    So this year, we have big goals, but its our first go-around as this team. It's going to be sloppy at times, and next year will really take off.

    I suspect if we do in fact qualify for the playoffs, we'll be happy just being there, and we'll lose early because of that. Only a handful of our players even know what a playoff game looks like, so it's going to be 2014 before a Super Bowl could or couldn't happen for us.

    A lot would need to happen for us to be a super bowl team. The #1 thing is obviously Locker needs to be an above average quarterback, near pro-bowl level. We don't need CJ2K, but we need CJ1.5K. Our offensive line has to stay healthy and dominate like the old days. Finally, we need our playmakers on D to arise (i'm talking to you ZB, Ayers, Morgan, & Casey). If all the above happens, plus another year of drafting, and not losing any significant free agents... we could shock in 2014.

    Chances it happens.... slim, but hey dream big!

    It's sad that I think he's more likely to kill someone than win a Superbowl.
