This has been such a bizarre offseason and regular season.

How many of you think we can win the SB this year, or think we can go deep in the playoffs or even if we will make the playoffs.

I'll try to make sense out of the questions, but if I hose it, the reason is in my Cajun DNA!

Ironically this will probably be the year we do it
Right. As bad as we look right now on D, if the coverage busts get fixed and Davenport somehow gets and stays healthy (I know), we can be very, very good. With Davenport and Rankins last year, we had the highest or second-highest pressure rate in the league. Combine that with very good man CBs, and that SHOULD be the formula for a dominant defense.

We just haven’t seen it yet. Not even close. Need to get right during the bye.

I'm holding onto the hope that getting MT back will fix everything, better offense will mean less pressure on the defense, that's my story and I'm stickin' to it!

People always fall for the “hot teams”. But it’s not often that the Hot Teams during the regular season emerge as the SB champs. Last season, the Chiefs were being written off. Hell, if you peak back over the past 10 seasons, the majority of the champs weren’t the regular season darlings.

All that matters is that a team finds its stride in January. We gotta make sure we are on one accord in the end. We absolutely have the talent and the mental resolve to be “that” resilient team.

There is a certain threshold of winning that you witness during the season. The chiefs were not a surprise team, but among the 3-4 teams that were in the mix the whole year.

It happened in the Chicago game with TQS.

Can you imagine if we have the ball in the 4th quarter of the Super Bowl, down 2, with 8 seconds to go, Saints was able to throw a pass and was able to reach within the 15 yard of the opposite team’s side of the field with no time outs? We were able to catch the ball, advance it and get tackled because the refs didn’t see the Saints player knee down beforehand and there was also a flag in the process of that play. As a result, the refs go back to replay and realizes the Saints player’s knees were down prior to YAC for 5 extra yards...Therefore, a 10 second run off happens and we lose the game due to the refs mistake

At this point you have Green Bay and Seattle playing really good football. Unless we find a defense quickly, and I don't see it, then I think it will be a short postseason - sad as most of us had high hopes of a final ring for Drew with a so called stacked team!
Seattle’s defense is actually pretty below average but Russ is basically willing them to victories (sound familiar?).

I'd love to be optimistic, bit we barely best a terrible lions team, a 1-3 chargers team and the buccs on opening day. We got smoked by Packers who I'm sure will be in playoffs. Any think we can beat them, the Seahawks or then the chiefs likely in the Superbowl???

Yeah, there’s just no true formula. 2018 Patriots got hammered by double digits against the Jaguars and Lions (?!?) early, then got beaten by the Dolphins and Steelers late. Still put it all together to win the super bowl.

2017 Eagles lost their starting QB and still found the right formula for them.

I feel like we need to be healthy, unlike the last couple years. And we need to find a way to be more explosive offensively. But we are absolutely among a handful of teams that have the ability to win it all, even if we haven’t shown it yet.

There's a zone between "Pretty Good Chance to Win SB" and "Best We Can Do is NFCCG." I believe we're somewhere in that zone. It's possible we can win the Super Bowl if we fix the breakdowns and penalties. I wouldn't call it a "pretty good chance" at this point, but I don't think our ceiling is the NFCCG either

I went with probably playoffs. Honestly we have looked like a team fighting to or needing help to get in the playoffs. The key is Davenport. If he can continue his climb back and get into the form he was in before he got hurt last season we can do some damage. We need stops. The offense can score points and is starting to round into form
