    After the first two weeks I think it is good to think of games on our schedule that look tougher or easier based on what has happened so far. I think @SF or Arizona at home looked like cupcakes but now I am not so sure both those could be tough games. Buffalo also looks much better. ST Louis is absolutely terrible. I thought Miami was goign to be improved but now I am not so much sure.

    The game against Denver may be a battle of the unbeatens. Cutler looks like Elway, Jr. and Marshall looks like a young T.O.

    Denver has a nice offense, the D is a bit of a question mark


    Buffalo will be tough, Arizona wont since it will be here, I think we could beat SF

    Denver and Buffalo will be serious challenges IMHO. Buffalo definitely scares me at this point. They play tough for 60min and are physical. That is a match up i want to see. The nice part is that we have abunch of 'tune up' games to work the kinks out with

    SD seems like nothing after seeing LT's performance through these first 2 games.

    It seems like the Pats will have a killer 6-game stretch starting in San Diego, which will include 4 primetime games and a big game against the Bills....all in just over a month's time. If the Pats can go into that stretch 4-0 and go 3-3 then the team should be OK.

    Marshall must have been watching films of the now retired Rod Smith because that is what he looked like out there in that Broncos uniform yesterday.

    The Patriots have NEVER won in San Francisco in the Pats history so maybe they have our number out there or they just have bad luck in SF - We shall see

    I can just see Denver coming into Foxboro 6-0, with a high-flying offense and presumably favored against the scrappy Patriots......and ironically the Pats turn the tables on their longtime tormenters :)

    As AThomas said in an interview, we need to win the games we are supposed to win and split the rest, and we'll be fine. And yes, we need to play one game at a time. I think that we should be 7-1 against the weak teams and 4-4 against the rest. That leads to 11-5.

    WEAK TEAMS (7-1)
    jets (2)
    phins (2)
    chiefs
    49ers
    rams
    raiders

    STRONGER TEAMS (4-4)
    bills (2)
    chargers
    broncos
    colts
    steelers
    hawks
    cards

    Seahawks are crap and the Cards are not that great either.

    I agree. Originally, I had them on the first list. 11-5 seems right in any case.

    #87 Jersey

    Don't get ahead of yourselves. We just beat two sh|t teams. Every game is going to be a nailbiter.

    San Diego is much better than anyone is giving them credit for. They should have won yesterday against Denver, don't forget. The refs totally flubbed two game-changing calls. I will be happily surprised if we beat San Diego on their home turf.

    Well Denver beat the Raiders, who suck, and Carolina beat SD pretty convincingly. The Donks and the Dolts stayed close all game so take it as you will. Of course it's only week 2 and they could improve but right now they are at the same level and playing pretty pedestrian, mostly on defense.

    Yes, we played two s$it teams. We ill also have six more such opportunities

    jets (2)
    phins (2)
    chiefs
    49ers
    rams
    raiders

    We also get to play the hawks and arizona.

    I think that we have a good chance of being 8-2 in these games. Those teams are aweful! And yet, I have us losing two of those games.

    To my mind, all the other six will be very tough. 3-3 will take a lot of work against the bills, chargers, broncos, colts and steelers.
