    7-9 was unimaginable....but now realistic!

    Im fed up with all the negativity with some fin fans. I like the majority never thought with a rookie HC & QB, 2 new co-ordinators, losing our best WR & CB that we would ever realistically be in with a shout of posting 7 wins. A lot, had us up for no.1 pick in 2013!

    I know a lot has to do with Jeff Ireland, but the last 2-3 years I have been impressed with the talent he has brought to roster. IMO he seems to have a good working relationship with Philbin and I think that is essential in moving forward, so time to forget about past.

    I hope we keep all the FO and coaching staff in place for next year, add a couple of receivers, pass rushers and CB's and trust in Ireland/Philbin has to who to resign and release and finally knock the Pats off no.1

    Some fans can be given slop, told its filet mignon and they'll lap it up like its a four star dinner. The next year they can be given slop again, told its filet mignon and they'll lap it up again like its world class cuisine.

    The thought of Jeff Ireland having a lot of money for free agency and 5 of the first 90 picks is disappointing. I'd much rather give Brian Gaine a chance then have another off season with Ireland.

    Glad to see I'm not the only one here with some perspective.

    If a team wants to improve it doesn't forget about the past, it LEARNS from it.

    The talent we have on our roster? We have the 33rd rated QB for qualifying QBs. There are only 32 teams...let that sink in for a moment.

    Actually a lot has changed. Namely we're starting a rookie QB who will be our future.

    We also didn't start the season 0-7.

    Our defense has actually improved.

    So has our special teams (minus the muffed punt this week)

    We're still guaranteed another losing season.

    I'm excited, too.

    Yeah, I recall many predicting 7-9...8-8.

    Exciting stuff, right.
