    Yesterday's CBS article got me thinking, now obviously this is still early and alot of factors and pre season injuries can sway games won and lost between now and the start of the season.

    However let's say we started tomorrow, what do you think the Pats record would end up being given the schedule we have.

    I'm saying 15-1 with a week 3 loss to the Ravens but undefeated from there on out.

    Like you i think a number 1 berth throughout the playoffs.

    I voted for 13-3 although as long as they win the SuperBowl I could care less how the regular season ends. :)

    This.

    If healthy, I'm looking for a dominant AFC team that rivals the 2003 & 04 squads and goes into the playoffs looking strong while beating its toughest opponents. Last year's squad would've won the Super Bowl on grit, mental toughness, and level of competition.

    This year's will get there it because it's now that much more talented than any other team in the AFC, and hopefully they can seal the deal.

    I think they are most likely to lose to the Jets on Thanksgiving and maybe Seattle or Denver who would want payback for their playoff thrashing. I don't think SF or Houston are ready to go to Foxboro and beat Brady!

    No offense to the O.P., but I think it's too early for this (for me personally). I say that because I need to see what the defense is looking like before I can be really confident. I don't see this team winning fewer than 12 games unless Brady gets hurt, but I need to see that defense working before I get a good feel about those last 4 games.

    Way to spoil the party. :mad:

    I went off of strength of schedule alone. If the defense is strong, I'll bump my pick up to 15-1.

    Deus is leaving a window open for 16-0 :D!
    ---------------
    My honest homer prediction is 16-0. The Pats survive week 3 @ Ravens and it will happen.

    Hey, I said it was for me personally. :)

    I look at matchups against

    Broncos
    49ers
    Texans
    Ravens
    Jets

    and I see games that the Patriots could lose, especially if the defense isn't really any better than last year. So, before I go tossing out a number, I want to see how the defense, and particularly the secondary, looks on the field.

    I'm going with 14-2. I figure the defense is going to be significantly better than it was last season.

    If the defense is good, I think you have to at least think about it. The only 'tough' non-divisional road game is against the Ravens, and that's a prime time game after a home game.

    Lets see, they've gone 16-0, 14-2, 13-3, 12-4, 11-5,10-6, 9-7 under BB.

    Sooooooo....

    I say 15-1 and vaporizing all 3 teams they face in the playoffs.

    Tell Mumbles to get some Turtle Wax for the duck boats.:D

    Normally I wouldn't predict more than 12 wins for any team regardless of how strong they appear to be, simply because there are so many variables. An injury to a key player, a rash of injuries to several players, a blown call by the refs, a tipped pass, crazy bounces, an unforeseen game plan by the opponent, and one or two wtf games where the team comes out flat - 12 wins is usually the limit to what I would consider to be a reasonable expectation.

    However, given the composition of the roster - despite the lingering questions of the team's defense - as well as what appears to be a favorable schedule, I would make an exception and go with predicting 13 wins this year.
