Well folks, it’s the start of another season. This year could go either way in my book. We could be really good or we could suck, hard to tell. If everybody stays healthy, the o-line shows improvement, the defense plays good, and the offseason acquisitions at coach and offensive line (as well as Preston brown) prove to be effective then I think this team has a 9-7 or 10-6 ceiling. If we make the playoffs we’ll lose in the wild card round of course. We’ll see where it goes.

If they lose today it's easy to see them at 0-4, as I said on the other post
===============================================
1991-2017 the putrid reign of Mikey Brown:
Record in Prime Time: 12 wins, 33 losses (0.267)
Record vs the Steelers: 14 wins, 42 losses (0.250)
Record vs AFC Playoff Teams: 32 wins, 116 losses (0.216)

With decent blocking up front, this team could finish anywhere between 8-8 and 10-6. If that O-line implodes like it did last year, we're looking at another six or seven wins, tops. The first couple of games will be telling.

Yeah, this game could go either way. If the Bungs can move the ball, they will win big. If not, it will be Heartbreak Hotel again.

Luck is going to be under pressure all day, but we know he can handle it. All indications are that he's healthy again.

Cordy Glenn has to stay healthy all year, as do those three first round cornerbacks. Tyler Eifert needs to contribute. John Ross needs to contribute. Hmmm....

A lot of room for pessimism.

This season is going to be a repeat of last year.

Billy Price getting bull rushed and Dalton throwing an INT as a result is kind-of a worst-case scenario. But here we are.

At least it wasn't a pick-6.

Does everyone agree that the D looks like it will be better this year?

Hopefully Teryl Austin can have the same kind of impact Mike Zimmer had on the defense. That’s yet to be seen.

3-0 Bungs

Nice start to the drive but it fizzled out before they could get to the red zone.Joe Mixon is accumulating a lot of yards.
