Very early returns: eight wins and maybe barely missing the postseason. Keep the votes coming... would like to see a larger sample size.

6 wins.......that D makes me nervous, not to mention they will die the first 6 weeks, and then move to a rookie QB......the longer Charlie Johnson plays, the worse the record, imo.

What I just typed is probably an opinion, not a fact. I mean, I'm usually right, so you should maybe assume it is or will be a fact soon, but that's up to you.

I'm trying not to fall into the trap again, but I went 9-7 and Wild Card loss. Am I drinking the koolaid?

The NFC is super strong, I don't think 9-7 gets you to the playoffs this year personally. I think they end up somewhere between 7 wins and 10 wins. Anything less than 8-8 and I will be disappointed. My head tells me 8-8 or 9-7, but my heart tells me 10-6.

It's all going to come down to these first 5 weeks, if they can go 2-3 then I think they have a punchers chance at the playoffs.

I think Mike Zimmer instantly improves the D, and Barr etc gives them a chance IMO to go from franchise worse, to somewhere close to middle of the pack in the NFL. If that is the case I don't see how they only win 6 games, they are playing a last place team schedule which will certainly help as well, additionally with Norv, you KNOW the passing game will be better.

One the players learn Zimmer's D, which I hope they do, this team should have a chance. I think 8-10 wins with a spot at the playoffs is a possibility.
