I'm thinking a .500 record is pretty fair for next season.
I'd say 8-9 wins is pretty fair. I think the year after that is the one where we'll make some real noise. I know the world expects Salary Cap Hell in the near future, but just as you've been hearing our broken Off-Season Champions record for awhile, we've been hearing stirring renditions of The Two-Year Window for about four years now. Time will tell. To quote The Dread Pirate Roberts: "And then we'll find out who is right, and who is dead."
Anyways, now I really do have to go and actually do some work. It's tough to tear myself away from this nice new board of yours though, so I'm sure I'll be seeing you all around the playground.
