    This sound like anyone familiar to you folks? Seriously, I thought this blurb underscored my optimism this season nicely.

    So, Doctor" Award for "Easiest way to figure our which teams will be better and worse this season"

    Here's the thing about the NFL: If you're looking for teams to jump a level, it's the same recipe every year. You need an easy schedule, or at the very least, a manageable one. You need a couple of horses (like the Chargers with Gates, Tomlinson and Jamal Williams). You need to get lucky in the draft with 3-4 contributors, need to nail your free agent signings, need a good coach, need to avoid deadly injuries in the preseason and the first 2-3 weeks, and need to avoid screwing up your cap space with those Peerless Price/Jeremiah Trotter-type contracts.
