    Now that we are 2 days away from the official start of the season, make your predictions here. How do you guys see the NFL season playing out.

    13-3. One of the losses is cuz vets are resting for the playoffs. All bets are off in the playoffs, but I give the edge to the Pats.

    Damn, took mine :D

    I'll say 12-4........... for the same reasons you list, plus that one WTF loss that none of us will be able to explain.

    I'll say we're the 2 seed (behind the Sqeelers and their cheesy schedule). Both of us will be in the AFC title game. I'll place FURTHER bets at that time. ;)

    I'm assuming the normal number of injuries for the Pats. If they have a healthy season... it could be better.

    You can take 13-3, I don't mind sharing.

    Well it made me think a lil bit, here are my W-L thoughts:
    Mon 9/14/2009 7:00 PM vs Bills = Win
    Sun 9/20/2009 1:00 PM @ Jets = Win
    Sun 9/27/2009 1:00 PM vs Falcons = Win, but it might be tough
    Sun 10/4/2009 1:00 PM vs Ravens = Loss, depends on whos running it better
    Sun 10/11/2009 4:15 PM @ Broncos = Win
    Sun 10/18/2009 4:15 PM vs Titans = Win, depends on how our DBs tackle
    Sun 10/25/2009 1:00 PM @ Buccaneers = Win
    Sun 11/1/2009 vs Bye
    Sun 11/8/2009 1:00 PM vs Dolphins = Win, mabye a "trap" game?
    Sun 11/15/2009 8:20 PM @ Colts = Loss, Peytons last ever W against us...
    Sun 11/22/2009 4:15 PM vs Jets = Win
    Mon 11/30/2009 8:30 PM @ Saints =Win, but will be a shoot out
    Sun 12/6/2009 8:20 PM @ Dolphins = Win
    Sun 12/13/2009 1:00 PM vs Panthers = Win
    Sun 12/20/2009 1:00 PM @ Bills = Win
    Sun 12/27/2009 1:00 PM vs Jaguars = Win, but MJD gives us fits
    Sun 1/3/2010 1:00 PM @ Texans = Win, tough game

    So there it is, 14-2 with mabye it being 12-4

    I'll go with 14-2 (barring major injuries), with losses to the Ravens and Titans.

    More important than the record, I see us struggling a bit early on, especially on defense, given all of the youngsters, personnel changes, and new schemes. There will be some mental errors and some blown assignments, which will cost us a game or two. But towards midseason - probably around the bye week after the 7th game - I see the defense coming together and becoming dominant. I see us winning out after the bye week, with shades of 2007 dominance.

    11-5

    Our questionable defense has lost one of their very best players. This is a defense with many new parts, a defense that was one of the worst in the league on 3rd down and in the red zone last year.

    This year 11-5 should win the division easily.

    If we had last year's schedule 12-4 or even better would be reasonable.

    I agree mg. Especially with four games down south. I don't think the Patriots history below the Mason-Dixon line is very good. I see them losing at Miami, New Orleans, Houston ( last game, rest the starters), Baltimore and Jets ( why did the Jets pick up O'Connell ?), at home.

    I agree. A lot of people have too high of expectations for this years Pats. Lets be honest: Defense wins games and right now our secondary is terrible. If teams can continue to pass on us easily than we will not even make it to the SB.

    I view the game @Miami as a trap game coming after a Monday night road game in N'awlins. I wonder if they would stay there versus flying home early on a Tuesday only to fly back down, like they did on the two west coast trips last year...

    If we're 13-2 going into the last game the starters probably won't play. You could mark that up as a loss.

    I'm expecting the opposite from you - you have an 8-0 start with a 5-3 finish. I'm expecting a 6-2 start with an 8-0 finish. Heck, we went 4-0 in December last year with Matt Cassel at QB and a porous defense. There's a lot of new folks on the team who will make some mistakes early on and take time to gel, but come December BB should have this team rockin' and rollin'.
