I said Happy. Pluses new coaches, bringing in new players all year, the players playing 60 minutes and never quitting on the field and moving in a positive direction. Negetives the big one is the record and the play of the defense.
I think some people had too high of expectations.
I voted happy, but I guess neutral probably would have been better. On the one hand, I'm really excited about the great coaching staff that has been assembled thanks to Pioli and Haley's history with these guys. But on the other hand, I still hate the '09 draft and we didn't land a single impact free agent in the offseason despite having a ton of cap space. Chambers was a great mid-season pickup though. So I'm somewhere in the middle, but with a pretty positive outlook on the future.
I am happy with the moves made so far but I wouldn't go so far as to say thrilled. The team was in very bad shape and still is to be honest. If they get to the playoffs next season after the addition of Weis and Crennel I will change the vote to thrilled.
To honda22:I would not say that Haley is 100% responsible for bringing those 2 coaches in as Pioli was also in New England while they were and Haley was not. They did spend time together under Parcells. I would say it is a shared value.
I can't be thrilled until we find out how his 1st draft turns out. TJ finished the year with 38 tackles, a huge improvement over the 5 he had midway through the year. McGee has to get a lot stronger against the run. Washinton, who knows. Same with Brown. The RB Williams, well he didn't look to promising. We did get Succoup and Belcher, so not all is lost.
