We have an abundance of skill players. Gossard, Hubbard, Jasmon and a few other returning senior starters, an abundance of talented and somewhat experienced juniors. Two different but talented junior QBs, one of whiich will probably wind up as a WR or safety since Coach Leonard rightly says they're too talented to leave one off the fireld.
So what's missing? Linemen - the beef up front that makes our holes and plugs theirs. Several linemen from the class of '08 got significant experience this year, but size is an important issue - we need a bunch of it. What happens in the weight rooms and at the dinner tables during the off-season COULD be the key separator between a great and a merely good season. I know of one mother in particular who just gasped at the thought of what it'll cost to feed one particular lineman this year :lol:
This could well be a team that finishes a lot stronger than it starts. Montini will be tough - they're at their house, with lots of returning starters and five years of longed-for payback. By the time they hit Glenwood, if they jel as the team they CAN be, they'll be a ton. By week ten, they'll be set for at least two playoff victories on their way to, maybe even through the quarterfinals.
Regular season: 8-1

I was having a discussion with the Rat at the KC after the championship game . . . simply on the point we have truly been spoiled - have we not lost a regular season game in over five years???? That is crazy success!!!! On the down side, however, one day it will occur - don't know when, but it will - I just hope people don't get their feathers too ruffled . . .

This leaves a team that many will uderesteamate, and with due cause. They have yet to proove themselves.
However, the same rumers were said about the 2005, 2003, and 1995 teams, and they did allright.
This will be an uphill battle for most of the teams. Many players may not even want to come out again after this seasons success.
With the right mentallity this team will run the table, on the other hand if they take their talent for granted, slack off in the weightroom, and go through practice with a laxadazical additude that certain Springfield schools,
They could easily end up 6-3.
