Post-Preseason Predictions: Anyone want to adjust?

Postby DeadRinger » Fri Sep 01, 2017 2:43 pm

Alright, I don't think anyone believed our D would be THIS bad, and certainly none of us believed that we'd STAND PAT on a trash heap this nasty.

So, I previously predicted a "small step back" this season.

I would like to revise my prediction to 9-7. That's the team we have, if we get lucky a few times.

I will. I'm saying 9-7. Rivers, Brady, Prescott will kill us. We can't stop the back up QB for AZ Cardinals! Whoever the fuck he is. How we gonna stop good QBs. 3 D coordinators? Del Rio, Norton & Pagano? And the defense is still trash

Yep... 9-7... maybe 10-6. No way we get the lucky wins we did last year. With just an average defense, this team could go to the show..... but not with this D.

I'll stay with 11-5 or 12-4 if Carr stays upright.

You guys predicting outrageous shit..... do you really believe it or are you just being complete homers? You can't possibly see the same D as I do and believe that shit.

I'll stick with original 10-6 but the inept defense will kill us and kill the morale of the offense...I can see this causing a 9-7 or 8-8 disaster and no playoffs...ownership and players have no loyalty to Oakland since their leaving...hopefully they don't pack it in and not compete at some point this season...this PEA-fense going to be hard to stomach this year!!!!

You'd think any half way smart GM would want to build a solid defense so his young QB, they just paid a shitload for doesn't have to be on the field in passing situations constantly. Every team has holes and areas they are weak in. But our whole entire defense looks weak. Season hasn't started yet and I hope they are a top 10 defense but with Norton and what we've seen so far it doesn't look good. What pisses me off is that it wasn't just good teams that lit us up last year it was a bunch of shitty teams too. Reggie should have got Clais Campbell, LB Brown and a few others. He could have signed guys like that and still could pay Mack next year or whatever. Pay Mack & cut the rest of the defense

I feel like we stick around 10-6 or 11-5. Well find mind blowing ways defensively to lose shoot outs.
Our offense looks better than I originally thought we would.
Chiefs loading up on defense big time to counter it.
I hate to say it but the middle of this D downright scares me. We've at least always had one or two capable linebackers to hold down the fort, until we sign another stop gap vet the following year. These two rookies may give it their best shot, but the team is asking too much of them.
Forbidden- your right, every team has a few holes, but our D has looked like Swiss cheese.
Well need to go Dime defense 90 percent of the time and utilize every corner we have.

I only said 9-7 because I know Carr will pull some shit out of his ass to bring us back and win a couple.

9-7 is my optimistic prediction.
