    Re: We're gonna be good!



    That's another point, if the Bengals are so good, and are going to over pass us because we don't have Suggs, who exactly do the Bengals have bringing pressure from the outside? Carlos Dunlap is hurt.

    Re: We're gonna be good!

    We had these same concerns going into last year. We wondered about our passrush and our secondary. We thought we were getting blasted by the Steelers but what happened?

    Pernell McPhee broke out. He didn't show much until the start of the season. This year, the same will happen.

    I'm not concerned about Gresham. Our D this preseason was basically four auditions. Same for offense.

    Re: We're gonna be good!

    The only reason the 4th preseason game gave me concerns was that our starting OLBs played in that game & for a reason and they didn't look good. Kruger acknowledged he played bad the game before and then played bad again. Not the most encouraging thing when he is suppose to the best OLB we have and is looking like he can't handle being an every down player. He might get better as the season goes on but that has yet to be seen. Even with all of the starters on the field he and Mcclellan still have to do their roles well. No one else can set the edge.

    How great is that to have? To know that it is almost a guarantee that we will be in the tournament and able to fight for the championship is a blessing.

    Enjoy the ride.
    This is no place for that positive outlook.

    We are destined to be an 8-8 team.

    We have "won" for the last 4 years straight.

    Is 5 the minimum or something before fans realize what is going on here?

    I still think we'll be good. But there are some legitimate concerns with the defense. Luckily the teams in our division have their own concerns. If we can make it to the playoffs with a healthy Sizzle then I think we'll be flat out dangerous. I don't think any team will want to face us.

    Prove his worth, seriously? I don't think Harbaugh has anything to prove at this point and has proven quite well that he is a great HC for this team. I doubt the team or Biscotti or even most of the fans feel he still has to prove something more than what we've seen the last 4 years. I think you may have him mixed up with Rex Ryan.

    Re: We're gonna be good!

    Nobody seems to realize...the fears we have...31 other NFL teams have the same problems. Look at the Steelers...OL is still shit, and their G that was going to redeem it is essentially lost for the duration. Their RB situation is a mess. Their star WR JUST reported to camp this week, their D is aging, they lost a couple key pieces to injuries in preseason, their CBs aren't anything to write home about...

    And yet everyone here assumes "That's it, Steelers are running away with the division".

    No team in the NFL is stacked. Even the Texans probably have some issues.

    I also agree, the whole "Harbaugh is going to have to prove himself as a HC" is getting kind've old. Ok, the guy hasn't won a SB yet. But it's funny how if we win, he gets no credit for it. But if we were to lose, he would shoulder the blame. Like if we win, it's in spite of him leading the team, but if we lose, it's obviously his failures as a HC.

    People still seem to want the hot name in HC, and can't accept that a guy who flew under the radar could possibly be a decent choice.

    I've been saying this all offseason. Harbaugh is the Joe Flacco of coaches. When we win its because some defensive coordinator put together a great defensive game plan or because Ozzie Newsome is great at assembling talent to put on the field. When we lose, its because Harbaugh didn't call a time out or Harbaugh challenged to many plays or not enough.... Its the same thing with Flacco. When we whooped the Steelers week 1, every player except Flacco got credit. The defense got credit, Rice got credit, Boldin got credit, hell even Bryant McKinnie got credit. Flacco got nothing. And when we lose, of course it is always all Flacco's fault. Hell sometimes when we win, it's Flacco's fault that we didn't win by more.....

    Rant over.

    The steelers offensive line has been shit for years, so it doesn't really matter. A team that has difficulty putting pressure on the quarterback can ill afford to lose its best pass-rusher, so the Raens might be in a little trouble defensively. One of our starting corners (Smith) doesn't seem to be making any progress over his rookie year and we still have cautious Cam calling the plays on opffense. There's no question that the defense will not be as good as in years past. The question is can Cam get his head out of his ass and take the prsssure off of the defense.
