Look at the Chiefs. They signed Cassel to a 63 million dollar deal, and there's rumors coming out that he's not even going to start. Apparently the Todd Haley system doesn't translate well from Josh McDaniels system.
Look at the Raiders. The Head Coach knocked out an assistant not unlike from what you would see on a Klingon starship. If I had to guess, I bet Nolan and Rick Dennison would be the toughest on our staff.
Look at the Chargers. The pieces of that team have been Super Bowl Caliber for the last few seasons. Yet they laid an egg on their first preseason game. Is it Norv Turner? Or does the whole team in general underachieve?
Sure we had our problems with Cutler and now with Marshall. But at least we didn't sign Orton to an extravagent contract, or our coaches duking it out. The San Francisco Game showed us that the team was hungry and played with a good intensity. Orton will bounce back, if not hey we didn't spend that much on him and we have more than capable replacement in Chris Simms.
I think we'll surprise and at least get a wild-card spot with a 10-6 record
