Need a big year from Bowers.
5reasons why they don't: 1. Josh Freeman2. Sean Peyton3. Mike Smith4. Drew Brees5. Matt Ryan
I have a hard time visualizing Freeman being bad enough for our offense to tank our season. In 12 games last season, Freeman played well enough for the team to win and in the four that he played badly, two of them the team could have still won with better defense. With another year in the same system and Sullivan understanding Freeman's strengths and weaknesses, I just don't buy a bad season out of him. He's still going to make some throws that make you cringe and some that will make your jaw drop and he's still going to over throw tall receivers again this year, but in the end, I believe the real bad plays will mostly be under control and eliminated.With Revis, and the others, injuries are going to happen. Occasionally some team goes the distance with all their starters, but most do not. What I'm hoping for is no season ending injuries to any of our starters. I think we have enough depth to get by a few games with a second teamer playing in place of the starter, but I honestly don't want to go through another year like last season. We are due for some injury luck, I'm hoping that it happens this year.
It is a bit of an anomaly that such a top rated run defense doesnt make the playoffs.
