    I knew it was a hard schedule when I looked when they were 1st made, but DAMN... I thought last year was going to be a rough ride. This schedule is the hardest I have ever seen for the PATS in quite some time:eek:

    I am going13-3 quick glance we had a hell of a yr last year. Miami can be defeated at their Lolphin stadium I like our WR/TE corps, but a lot hinders of FA'cy. If we pick up a significant body I will most definately need to amend


    Asking for another 14-2 would be wrong. How many of these teams have new QB's and or coaches? I think it matters early on... Still plz let me know


    The Giant and Philly games were tough to analyze. I went win heavy and hope that I am right :)

    12-4 was the safe line... I am still going 13-3 for now.

    why am I so win heavy??? b/c last year I thought we would struggle barely going 10-6/ 9-7 and went 14-2. We are 1 of the most experienced teams coming into this year. Our QB and Coach are the best. I love our Trip Tight Ends and still think other teams will struggle against this O.
    My biggest flaw is not factoring in injury I never like to think of significant injuries so i exclude the possible happening. I think our D will be improved and RAS will be an impact player @ CB.

    free agency hasn't even started, what's the point? Teams will be completely different after they sign and release players.

    too early for me to predict. i'll hold off until we see what the pats and others, esp in the division, do in FA and then see how things come together across the league in Training Camps.

    I'll play for fun, lighten up guys.

    Week 1: Win
    Week 2: Win
    Week 3: Win
    Week 4: Win
    Week 5: Win
    Week 6: Win
    Week 7: Bye
    Week 8:Win
    Week 9: Win
    Week 10: Loss (@ Jets)
    Week 11: Win
    Week 12: Loss (I envision Mike Vick going nuts on our D. Frustrating day I predict)
    Week 13: Win
    Week 14: Win
    Week 15: Loss (Sloppy game of season @ Mile High. Tebow makes some lucky BS plays)
    Week 16: Win
    Week 17: Win


    Pats start out 8-0 in impressive fashion, fans speculate if they can really go 16-0 again, Brady on fire, Jets take a piss on that parade on Sunday night at home, pats fall to 8-1.

    Pats lose in a high scoring game to the Eagles, if they are big players in FA they could be the #1 seed in the NFC.

    A sloppy loss @ Mile High. Pats finish 13-3 with #1 seed. :)

    Without even knowing what the team even looks like but hoping the running game is better so Brady isnt left doing everything. I'll predict a 14-2 with losses to the Jets (as usual) and another strange loss to the Raiders, just cause sh** happens at least once a season.

    As a shot in the dark, hmmmm...12-4.

    Any more wins than that are gravy.


    Bear in mind that last season we had the benefit of an offense that was changing during the season. Usually teams enter a season and gradually defensive coordinators accumulate enough game film to figure out the best approach to defend a given offense. Last year, we changed our offense much more than normal by jettisoning Moss, acquiring Branch, losing Faulk, picking up Woodhead, and using our TE's more. Opposing defenses were caught with their pants down. Game film from say week 1 of the season offered little for D-coordinators to glean. And that's not to detract from the fact that we had a good offense, but it certainly helped having that midseason element of surprise--a morphing offense. I don't think we can expect such a pronounced change again.

    Let's see now. . . I wrote it down on a piece of paper. . . no cheating! 11 - 5. No matter what your record is at the end of the day, though, 1 and out for the win.

    EDIT & P.S.: Woodhead will be the death of me, and to be perfectly fair - no cheating! - our loss.

    I don't think you'll see a sudden morph, but I think that as GRONK and Hernandez become more comfortable, it'll become harder and harder for opposing Ds to avoid tipping their hands.

    Thanks. The entire Jets organization has always had me one foot in the grave. May as well throw some dirt on it.

    I'll go with 13-3. The Pats don't really project to lose anyone important other than Light and Faulk. Gostkowski is coming back, Ty Warren is coming back, and our rookies and 2nd year players from last year will now be 2nd and 3rd year players coming into their own. Add the talent from the recent draft and the Pats are in great position.

    Even if other teams improved, the Pats will improve as well. I think the only real lingering question is the pass-rushing issue but I expect us to add a vet to boost that once free agency begins. Passing game was more than adequate with Branch, Welker, and tight ends. The new emphasis on the rushing game will also alleviate pressure on league MVP Brady.

    What can I say, I expect nothing less than a division title and a deep playoff run. This team will be a SB contender barring any serious injuries.

    Based on the way the Patriots played the latter half of the season, I think all those teams on the schedule can be beaten if you include the fact that the Pats will have addtional rookies and FAs, but it just feels awkward for me to type 16-0. To be realistic, I'll say 12-4. Loss to the Colts, Chargers, Jets and Eagles.

    14-2 Would be 15-1 but the Pats starters will only play about half of the last game.

    01 Dolphins W

    03 @Bills W
    04 @Raiders W
    05 Jets W
    06 Cowboys W
    07 BYE WEEK

    13 Colts W
    14 @Redskins W
    15 @Broncos L
    16 Dolphins W
    17 Bills W

    13-3 with a conservative approach to weeks 10 @ Jets, 12 @ Eagles & 15 @ Broncos. There's something about Mile High no matter what Broncos team is put out there that makes them competitive against the Patriots. Could see the Pats record between 14-2 and 12-4.

    I'm going to go with a respectable 12-4. Hopefully that gets us a 1st round bye but you never know (11-5 wasn't enough to get us into the playoffs one year).

    01 Dolphins W
    02 Chargers L (On their day they can be very good, was a tight game last year)
    03 @Bills W
    04 @Raiders W
    05 Jets W
    06 Cowboys L (one of those WTF losses we have every year)
    07 BYE WEEK
    08 @Steelers W
    09 Giants W
    10 @Jets L (can see this being a split)
    11 Chiefs W
    12 @Eagles W
    13 Colts L (Peyton might get one back this year you never know)
    14 @Redskins W
    15 @Broncos W
    16 Dolphins W
    17 Bills W

    In my opinion a couple of losses sprinkled through out the season keeps a team grounded and hungry.

    10-6, wild card...Pats don't get the gaudy plus/minus and the defense gives up 22/23 ppg...gonna feel alot like 2002, except the defense can't stop the pass instead of the run like it was in 02...the offense is explosive at times and Gronkowski becomes a cross between Gates/Gonzalez in their primes - massive #s this season....team has to fight for their playoff lives and pulls out 3 of last 4 to grab the #5 seed....they finally show they have playoff balls and go on the road to #4 seed IND and win, but they loose the following week in Div round to PIT or NYJ

    You think the defense is going to regress with key pieces of the puzzle returning and the assumed development of the juniors stalling?

    Patriots losing to the Steelers, Giants and Jets consecutively? When was the last 3 game losing streak the Patriots had FCB02062?

    I believe their last three game L streak was in 02....and I think that defense is going to mirror this year's defense because this pass rush is going to be one of the bottom 5 or 6 in the league....

    So you think Ty Warren, Mike Wright (in his pass rushing situational role) or Leigh Bodden returning is going to have no affect on the Patriots defense at all?
