I think the pass rush will be fairly good, not elite but fairly good. I like the interior penetrators we have between Ridgeway, TY Mcgill, Parry, Anderson and Arthur Jones to push the pocket along with Langford. If we can get some extra juice from Bates and Maggitt to go along with Mathis and Cole I think we'll be somewhere right in the middle. A good ways away from last years ranking. I can deal with being middle of the pack if our offense is clicking on all cylinders which I think it will. That in itself is going to create more pass rushing opportunities. Lack of pass rushing opportunities was another part of the problem last year as well.
Yes they had Steve Young waiting and we had Andrew Luck waiting is precisely my point. Many people bash Irsay though for letting Peyton walk so I wanted to point out at least he didnt trade him and he even paid Peyton for the duration of his contract. I think the 49ers made the right choice by the way because Young was younger and up and coming just like I think we did.
It wasn't so bad when you had Steve Young waiting in the wings. Bill Walsh was smart enough to know when to make the trade and when to start Young. Montana's legend has grown to where some think he is the greatest but Young might have been a better player. The super bowls is what separates the difference but super bowls are a team thing. Things like most people who talk of Jerry Rice automatically put Joe Montana's name beside. In reality Rice-Young combination had more numbers together than Montana-Rice.
Yeah we have a lot of new Coaches. I am hoping the chemistry works. I am really not to nervous about this season, anxious more than anything after going 8-8 and people writing us off. I seen what Andrew is capable of under Chud when we beat a healthy loaded Denver team so I feel good about my 10-6 prediction.
Looks like some new faces on the board!! Welcome to all of you I have missed this spring and summer. Get ready for some fun stuff...and some interesting banter/debates!! I am ready for Colts football. Anyone else???
