I expected McNabb to come in and perform at his usual levels of effectiveness and being stingy with turnovers. I expected Jamal Brown and Trent Williams to solidify the OL to where it was at least average. To sum it up, I was wrong about a lot when it came to this season.
Now, I expect it will take at least 2 full offseasons to get us back to full respectability to where we can contend with the top 3-6 teams in the NFC.
I was wrong on pretty much everything you listed above as well. I don't think we necessarily had 10 win talent, but I definitely thought we'd be at least 8-8. I really thought our 4-3 linebackers and linemen would have an easy transition to the 3-4. Not the case at all lol.
