This has the look of a team right around .500 to me. It's hard to expect everyone to come back from injury and get right back to their best. It's also another year of transition on the offensive side of the ball. Getting through the first six weeks, before the bye, in decent shape will be a primary goal. They face Atlanta, New Orleans, San Diego and Baltimore in that span, as well as what could be two of the more improved teams in the league -- Buffalo and Tampa. I have a feeling the defense gets pretty dialed in right away, but the struggle to score points, to get Bowe quickly up to speed, to get Cassel turned around, could go well into the season. And if Charles is not that home-run hitter they need right away, I'm not sure how well equipped they will be to provide explosive plays on offense and quickly move down the field.
