Thinking about it, my answer would depend on what we accomplish in FA and the draft. If we sit tight in FA and just sign utility/backup players and then play it safe in the draft, then no I will not be disappointed if we go 8-8 in 2012. It would again be making gold out of lead.
If Denver decides they have the cap room to land a few big name free agents and then make dynamic moves in the draft to get guys who are playmakers, then yes I will be disappointed if they go 8-8. The talent they would have accumulated, plus a full offseason should have netted more than the previous year's team.
But as I said before...its february. Get back to me in June.
