You need to quit with the excuses and get over the fact we whipped your ass twice last year in convicing fashion. Let it go

Re: Is excitement enough in 2012?

While i'll hold off on any prediction (who could even say with so many variables?) I have been saying since the start that the pressure shouldn't be on till Shanahan's 4th year. By that time, there should be no excuses.

So, I think excitement is enough. I don't want any knee-jerk reactions if RGIII's first year isn't a 10-6 wilcard playoff birth. There are going to be growing pains.

With that being said, I think there should be some improvement, some signs of moving up. By hitting .500, I think it starts showing the message we've turned a corner and next year it will be even better.

2-14 to 4-12 is not unlikely.
What about the cowgurl games. We should of WON those.

We lost quite a few very close games w/ arguably the worst starting QB(s) in the league...let's look on the bright side shall we?

4-12 wouldn't surprise me but neither would 9-7

He did, but he was on a horrible team.

No way they fall that far. I'm saying 8-8 or 9-7. Either record would be a solid first year with RG3.

Reason for optimism after the year Newton and Dalton had last year. RG3 has more talent around him than Newton had.

Re: Is excitement enough in 2012?

I just want to see a competitive team. I can't quantify that in number of wins, it's subjective, I'm more concerned with the level of effort. There were times last year where I knew the team was going to fold late in the game. I want the opposite feeling. I want to see a team that has a chance to pull off the victory. The offense has been so disappointing, for so long, I just want to see scoring. The defense will be okay.

How did Manning do statistically wise his rookie year? I can imagine with good qb play on a horrible team you should be able to win more than 2 games.

Didn't most people around here think we were going to win 8-10 games last year?

I felt like it was going to depend on which version of Rex Grossman showed up. If he played consistently good football I felt 8-8 to 10-6 was reasonable, but if he played crappy than we'd have another crappy season. I didn't see the Beck hiccup coming though. Obviously the latter happened.
