Truly believe all bere are ardent fans. Going back to the 10-1 season for a bit. Not actually a very good team but one with a lot of confidence from the prior seasons. They knew how to win. A very soft schedule luckily. Followed by years of disappointed expectations and a D that just got worse every year. Last year gives us a lot of hope and optimism for next season. The BUT for many is we have been here before over the last 3 years and watched a truly awful D. Dampens confidence going into the year.
The potential is there on both sides of the ball. D has size and talent and more importantly experience. Key is their confidence in the system and their executuon of it. D needs to be able to swagger.
