MY "SOFT" PREDICTION FOR 2013.

Posted February 11, 2013

TODAY we know we have Michael Vick running Chip Kelly's up-tempo system.

Today we know that the Defense will play 4-3 but will transition to a 3-4.

Today we know who our staff is. We know we can rule out a QB as a high Draft pick. 

Soon playbooks can go out. Teammates can start calling each other to say "Hey man, check out the play on page 6 of Section Red in the playbook!" or "Hey man, what kind of block is that in the sub-audible on page 2 of Section White?"

Things can get moving now.

There's still Free Agency and a Draft to be had, but my guess is that this team will gut out 5-6 wins this year. Anything more than 8 and we should all (me included) take stock of what we consider makes a good coach. 

I don't like the senior members of this staff and I don't like the 3-4 Defense, AT ALL. But I still believe in a number of the guys on this roster. There's still a lot of talent on this roster, so 5-11 should be for the taking. If the leadership can prove us wrong then, well...

I'll speculate later again after the Draft and then after Week 3 of the preseason.
