I don't get why everyone thinks our offense will be so much worse than last year. Well, OK, it's because we couldn't score in the preseason. But look at our personnel. We swapped out Plax, LT, and Hunter for Hill, Powell, and Howard / Smith. For everyone that says that Sanchez sucks - don't you also say he sucked last year? Even if he doesn't turn into a Manning, it seems reasonable to think he'll suck less this year.
I think our offense will be a little improved from last year - which would be close to average from bottom third. And I think our defense will be excellent. 9 or 10 wins sounds about right.
