    The way we ended the year 10-6 looks more likely than 6-10. We could go 16-0 or 0-16... no one knows the future.

    7 years under Tomlin and we made the playoffs 4 times... made the SB 2 times.. won 1 lSB and haven't had a losing season yet.

    WTF is the problem?

    it's easy to feel this way when you aren't dragging Tomlin bashing baggage around for 7 years.

    I'm going to say that 6-10 is a real possibility next year... largely because of the question marks scattered all over both sides of the ball. A lot of this largely depends on what happens before the 1st pre season game.. and the FO will shoulder the balk of the burden (in my opinion) if next year goes the way of 6-10.

    This is true, but there are likely going to be some changes in key positions next year...so it may be a mistake to assume that this team is going to pick up where it left off. Like you said, no one knows the future.
