I agree that it is silly not to consider us an title contender - we are well positioned to win the division and have a very valid chance to get a first round bye.
Having said all that, I think there are legitimate concerns re WM. He is a solid grind-it-out back and he is solid in blocking and receiving. I love his attitude, toughness and hard work. But he is not a break-away threat, and dang it - all those fumbles.
Ask yourself what is our weakest O position. If Kuper comes back you could make the argument that it is at running back.
