i'm sorry but i just don't see where this team has regressed from last season and when they won 8 and were 8-5 after 13. they lost plax, tomlinson, mulligan and hunter from the offense but gained hill, a second year kerley, austin howard and have better te options than before. they also gained tebow and, maybe he can't throw, but he gives them a much better option at wildcat than smith did. greene is the same and so are sanchez, keller, powell, and the rest of the line. the key thing is if holmes is coming to play and if keller is going to play for a contract. the offense will surprise now that rt has some steadiness.
on defense they have done nothing but improve. coples is proving to be worthy of his draft position and ellis is finally ready to play now that the whole jail thing is over. wilkerson did well last season and will do better and they have strengthened the inside with landry and bell. scott is playing for a contract and so are pace and thomas. so the defense will be motivated to play hard. they are faster and they have been built from the dline out. this will take lots of pressure off the lb's and secondary.
the bottom line is this team has improved so even 13 wins are not out of the question. and you never know which way the ball will bounce.
