    The only real issue coming up this season may be our expectations and reality!

    Reality and our expectations as fans may not meet at the necessary point this year. I am lowering my expectations, as a coping mechanism, and anything above those expectations will be a nice surprise. I expect issues with a new coaching staff/communication, a new system, and team chemistry to be as much an issue as Feeley or Williams. It just makes common sense that such adjustments will make it difficult for this team to perform much better than last year. Maybe 6 to 8 wins. Anything above that would be nice fantasy. I have hope, but tempered with reality.

    p.s., for those of you who do not want someone to speak all-inclusive I will re-phrase my title; my expectations and reality versus ours ....

    I've been trying to be as realistic as possible. I'm thinking it is realistic to be predicting that we'll be in the range of 7-9 wins this season. That's what I've been saying all along. And I agree anything above that would be a nice ADDED BONUS. I think I've done a good job not setting myself up with high expectations incase there's a downfall.

    There's just enough question marks to temper my enthusiasium, but enough talent to keep me glue to the seat for games..it should be an interesting year. The places I expect to have break downs won't disappoint me as much knowing going in. I'm hoping for some pleasant suprises..but my feet on defintely on the ground.

    I've always stated we will finish about 6-10. Moderate improvement and a shot at one of the 4 premier LT's in next years draft

    the problem is, is that anything is possible.

    Since 2000 17 teams with losing records from the previous year made the play-offs the following year....
