    Just said on the 2008 NFL pre-season special.

    Added that in his mind there are only 3 tough games on the schedule. (@ SD, @ IND, @ SEA)

    Says they should have been perfect last year and are the team to beat in the AFC, as did Deion Sanders. Both said the only way another AFC team is making the Super Bowl is if something were to happen to Brady or Moss.

    Steve's on the record for possible perfection, what says you?

    The fact that @ SEA is considered a tough game shows how hysterically bad our schedule is :D

    hold up there as sec fellas. we have some tough teams to play:

    colts, chargers, jets, jets, seattle(on the road), denver(has our number) and pittsburgh. that's 7 tough games out of 16.

    colts and chargers both want revenge from last year. the jets have favre now and always want to beat us. denver is tough to play against, even when they had plummer and you never know about pittsburgh.

    19-0 is possible, but our schedule is not as easy as everyone thinks.

    Also keep in mind there's the back to back west coast games. If the team decides to stay out there after the first game, that might make a big difference.

    All four west coast games are split up back to back. :)

    No way....not with the rookie learning curve at lb and db. Our secondary is pretty bad, and will be the cause of a few loses.

    13 - 3 or 12-4.

    I think we win the sb, and thats all that matters.

    The hell it isn't. Show me teams with tougher schedules.

    Wanting ain't doing. FWIW, every team we played last year wanted to beat us.

    Every team wants to beat every other team when they play them.

    We want to beat them as much as they want to beat us.

    They always do, that's true, but so what? How's that wanting been working out for them in the Brady era?

    Wanting ain't doing.

    I'm not concerned with going undefeated. Right now, I just want them to play well against Kansas City, especially the defense, and look toward making the playoffs.

    That's pretty easy. For example...

    Colts
    vs Bears
    @ Vikings
    vs Jaguars
    @ Texans
    vs Ravens
    @ Packers
    @ Titans
    vs Patriots
    @ Steelers
    vs Texans
    @ Chargers
    @ Browns
    vs Bengals
    vs Lions
    @ Jaguars
    vs Titans

    I'm positive they can go undefeated...tomorrow. And that's the only game that matters.

    Well put. And I might take some flak for it but it might be the best thing to get a "loss" over early--say week 2. I know, losses are "never good", but it would put the focus back to where its supposed to be, winning the game(1), winning the division(2), winning home field(3). You cant even get to the SB til you do that...

    I can't believe people are already thinking about another undefeated season when they haven't even played their first game. If their 8-0, restart this thread.

    I think the secondary will improve but I agree with your predicted record. 13-3 and the SB.

    Yeah, but they've done it before. Not much different than wondering out loud if the Giants can repeat (hehehehe).

    Also, not true. The Redskins cannot go undefeated.

    whose focus? Yours? Being 18-0 did not give the Patriots a lesser chance of winning the SB than say being at 15-3 going into that game.

    The only thing an early loss will do is let us fans watch the games without hearing all this undefeated talk again.
