This team, with its lack of talent on offense:
Beat a very good Seattle team
Played the Pats well (that one game)
Lost to the Colts by a FG
All playoff teams.
They lost 4 games by 5 points or less, and that one game to the Pats by a TD. If we had some more talent, we could be looking at 11-5 or 12-4.
Played the 49ers incredibly close until Kapernick put it away.
With the offseason we have coming up, as long as we do Free Agency correctly, spend wisely, and draft correctly...We're definitely looking at a promising playoff run next year. Although we have that one wildcard (Ireland) who could **** it up. I believe in him though....because I have to and want to think he can get it right this year. Hopefully he doesn't call any FA or draftees mother a hooker.
AND this was all with a ROOKIE QB, ROOKIE HQ, and piss poor secondary (for the most part). We got money and we got picks. We always say we're 3-4 players away. Now we got the opportunity to go out and get those 4 players that we want. 2-3 in FA and then draft the rest.
