    What if.....San Fran has some problems and their season goes to %&$@ and ends up 2-14?

    You never know is going to emerge next year, if I was on this board last year at this time and told you that Jamarcus Russel was going to be the consensus top pick in the 2007 draft, you would have told me I was an idiot (shortly after you finished saying,"Jawho?").

    If some QB, maybe Louisville's QB, or someone else emerges, the Pats could make one of those your top ten pick, plus a 2nd this year and your first next year, trades.

    I doubt that San Fran will finish that bad, but I can't see them over .500 either, but we can only hope!

    I love having two other teams to root for each weekend. So for the opening weekend, we have the Pats pummeling the Jests on Sunday at 1. Then we can root for the Lions to beat the Raiders at 4, and then Lienart and the Cards to beat San Fran in the late game Monday night!

    Even I (who thinks less of SF than just about anyone here) can't imagine 2-14. But I maintain that right now if I were to make odds for their schedule they would only be the favorite in 3 games. They weren't a good team last year (7-9 despite the 5th worst point differential in the league) and while they've improved on paper some this offseason, it's not as dramatic as some think. Add to that, Alex Smith's numbers were better in the first half of the season than the second. .500 is their most optimistic outlook IMO.

    And, yeah, it rules having someone else's #1. Usually the only way you can enjoy your #1 moving up is by having your team lose . . . not for us :rocker:

    Actually I was just looking at their schedule and they better win opening night or they could easily be staring 0-8 right in the face!

    10-Sep Arizona-pick'em, maybe a slight favorite
    16-Sep @St. Louis-at the Dome on a short week, that will be tough
    23-Sep @Pittsburgh-back to back trips east, and Pitts is always tough
    30-Sep Seattle-won't get swept by them
    7-Oct Baltimore-will make Smith beat them, don't think he can
    Week 6 BYE
    21-Oct @N.Y. Giants-long trip back east.
    28-Oct New Orleans-too good for them
    4-Nov @Atlanta-third trip to the east coast, another good running team.
    12-Nov @Seattle-Seattle is tough at home.
    18-Nov St. Louis
    25-Nov @Arizona
    2-Dec @Carolina
    9-Dec Minnesota
    15-Dec Cincinnati
    23-Dec Tampa Bay
    30-Dec @Cleveland

    I've bolded the three games I'd make them favorites in right now. Actually, make it four, I'll add home to Minnesota.

    Other than that they're the underdog in every game IMO. To quote Jim Mora Sr. : "Playoffs ?". Ha ha ha. We're going to end up two two picks in each of the first three rounds after trading down from around #8.

    i think the SF's pick will be somewhere between 15 and 25

    Oakland's pick should be in the top 10-15 in round 3.

    So, it gives this:

    ROUND 1

    SF: 15-25
    NE: 26-32

    ROUND 2:

    NE: 26-32

    ROUND 3:

    OAK: 1-10
    NE: 26-32

    If we use the median pick, it should mean:

    20
    29
    61
    69
    93

    I'd narrow the range for the Oakland pick to 1- 5 myself.

    Yeah, I can't see them winning a single game in thier division, well maybe if it comes down to clock management, they take one from Kansas City, other than that they have winnable homes games against Cleveland, Houston, & Detriot, but that is about it.

    I see 7 god-awful teams next year;
    Oakland
    Houston
    Washington
    Detroit
    Buffalo
    Cleveland
    Tampa Bay

    Don't see SF cracking that group. I've got a group of about 8 teams that I don't see making the playoffs unless things go really well for them. Plus,
    being in the NFC helps. I put SF towards the bottom of this group. So,
    I think 15 is a realistic spot.


    Minnesota - No QB. Things could really blow up if Peterson gets hurt.
    Green Bay - Last year's record result of horrific competition.
    Miami - Trent Green could push them toward 8-8 mark.
    Arizona - They could make a nice leap if Leinart develops quickly.
    St. Louis - No D
    NY Giants - Losing Tiki going to really hurt.
    Tennessee - Teams will adjust to VY's running better.
    San Fran - I agree with everyone who says they were luck to be 7-9.
    But, they did have a nice off-season sans losing N.Turner.
    I have them 7-8 headed to Cleve. Maybe, Romeo can do us
    one last favor.

    I think the next 5 are solid playoff contenders. Wouldn't be shocked
    if any of them made the playoffs.

    Atlanta - Wouldn't surprise me if they make wild-card.
    KC - 8-8 OR 9-7.
    Pittsburgh - Not only lost Cowher. But top off coaches. Wisenhunt and Grimm.
    Baltimore - Took some hits. I expect Cincy to rebound.
    NY Jets - Tougher sked. I have Denver and Jax as wild-card.

    AFC NFC
    EAST New England Philly
    North Cincy Chi
    South Indy New Orleans
    West SD Seattle
    Wild Card Denver Dallas
    Jacksonville Carolina

    The question is whether Miami or Buffalo crack the list.
