I tend to slurp the kool aid and over estimate our win total

This year I see 6 Definite loses so hard for me to get too excited. One consistency in year three of Coach Mo is I literally have no idea how we will play. There has been so much change with coaches players etc.. that if we won 8 games I would not be totally shocked but definitely pleasantly surprised and if we won 2 games I would not be shocked. Most years I followed the coaches and players close enough to have a good idea on our win total excluding the season being ruined by the injury bug. It helps to have consistency at QB but with our revolving door at QB I cant even begin to guess how many games we will win in 2018 based on the fact we will playing a brand new QB whether it is Holton, Kingsley or Reid. I also know that until we develop on OL that allows us to run a decent offense we are screwed and our Defense has been an absolute dumpster fire so if it just improved to be ranked around 75-80 we are talking 6 wins.

At the end of the day I have no idea but I do know that Mo has got to turn around this year and 3 years is plenty of time for a solid HC to win 6 games. If they cant win 6 games in 3 years of trying then it is time to move on. I will say the only caveat is if we win 4-5 games this year but lose our games by close margins instead of letting teams regularly hang 60+ points on us and curb stomp us. If we won 4 games and lost even 6 by 10pts or less I would see hope for the future. If we lose a bunch of games by 21+ points then it is definitely time to look for a new Coach
