Talk about stats being misleading...
They actually had a top 10 passing offense DESPITE the fact that all his receivers had a severe case of the dropsies all season.

What brought that rank down to 18th was the abysmal running game: 28th in yards, 27th in yards per attempt, and 31st in TDs.

That Nuge would end on IR and the guy we got off the street would be more favored by the fans going into the playoffs.

And make sure we always keep the people who can find guys like this. Marvin should be a GM for this team someday.

-Geno would not only lead the team in sacks, but have 4.5 more than the next DT/NT in the NFL.

I knew he was good, but I never would have predicted him to have this kind of coming out party.

Crazy stuff. Anybody who would have predicted any of this would have been laughed at.

We beat every team to have ever had sole position on top of the NFC East, but lost to the one team that didn't

Ahem, cough, cough....

But I think we'll win 11 games. I think we may start slow and Jay Gruden may be bald by the end of the season, but I think that along with Dalton and Zimmer, Gruden will drag Lewis kicking and screaming to a win streak in the middle to later part of the season that at that point no one will see coming.

The Bengals may come out of the gate 4-3 but I can def see 5-2 as well, but the second half of the season will be better than ppl think.

Gilberry was great for our rotation.

Crocker helped turn things around, and allowed us to not be hurt by our other struggling safeties.

Dalton throwing more INTs than Carson is a bit shocking.

Well to give some credit to Bradfritz I think he predicted Burfict would break the NFL single season sack record.
