Tomorrow will show a lot of what will become of this team. Here's to hoping for the best but expecting the worst.

This club is in serious disaray, no legitimate starting QB, a rookie head coach who was in charge of one of the worst defenses in the league last year. An owner who is done spending money until the taxpayers pay for a new stadium for him. To top it off they are faced with a division in which EVERY team but the lions swept them (1-5 in the division last season) and these same divisional opponents will be even better and more talented this coming season. A 5-11 record for the purple is the most optimistic prediction that even the most challenged homer can hope for this coming season.

This is Spielman's make or break year. Fans will be singing his praises or screaming for his head when this season's over.
