    OK there is about a month before Training Camp starts and it looks like many of us are reaching to find football related stuff to talk about.

    So why don't we do a really early,totally meaningless (as they all are) predict the record poll. This will be one of 42 predict the record polls before the season starts.

    Here's the schedule in case anyone doesn't have it memorized by now.

    Re: The way too early to do this:predict the record poll

    I am not happy that the choice is 16-0 and not 19-0 as I found that to be an odd sticking point last year and as we found out 16-0 is cool and everything but not the end of the book.
    that was my the vote I cast though.

    I'm going with 14-2. Possible loss at SD but not at Indy. One other surprise loss but not to an AFCE team or the Steelers.

    I'm going with 14-2 which means it won't happen. I DON'T want to see them go 16-0 to much pressure,plus its already been done.

    So you would like a way too early to include the playoffs with the way to early to predict the season poll?

    I say 13-3, though I'm never absolutely certain of their record until after the first pre-season game:D

    14-2. There were some games we won last year that involved a dash of miracle dust. There will be close games this year as well, but we can't expect to win all of them. That said though, the Pats are still the best in the NFL.

    Re: The way too early to do this:predict the record poll

    13-3 or 14-2. These things are so hard to predict; if things had turned out slightly differently against Philly, Baltimore and the Giants, ( a couple of minutes' different play over three games), then we could have ended up 14-2 SB winners. Equally, we could have been 19-0...

    I say 14-2. No particular microanalysis - it just feels like the right answer to me.

    14-2 with losses coming to Indy and I think Seattle on the road. Just a hunch...

    If that becomes the case then switch Buffalo with Seattle.

    I'd love to say 16-0, but 14-2 would be amazing.

    I'm new to the forum, but do you guys think resting the starters in week 17 (Giants) would have changed the playoffs? I do, and perhaps without 16-0 on the line they would have.

    But the past is just that.

    14-2 w/ losses to San Diego and possibly (ducks) the Jets. My buddy who knows football better than me says they've beefed up they're D a lot.

    14-2 or 13-3. They'll take 2/3 out of four against Chargers, Denver, Indy, Pitts. And they'll have a letdown one of the other games.

    No.

    The Ravens went from average to horrible after their even closer game with us, the fact the Giants got hot after that was IMO the fact the conference they were in still was far inferior the AFC thus a easier playoff run.

    13 wins seems most likely IF the main players stay healthy MOST of the year if not all year - An Injury to Brady,Moss or any of the front 3 for an extended period of time will bring that down considerably.

    Injuries are not an IF but WHO will have them and for how long,Thats the ONLY guarantee this year right now.

    Kdo5 - 10-6 record you think really? - Then it must be for some reason but 6 losses is a bit of a longshot unless like I said above injuries pile up in key areas.

    Matt Cassell as QB if Brady is hurt and we will pick AGAIN in the top 10 in '09 for a different reason than this year but thats not likely.

    So you think not only will the Patriots lose to the three best teams that they play, but they will also drop two games against the Jets and Bills?

    Worst case scenario, anyone?

    Not a bad breakdown except for the last Buff game, the Seahawk game, 2nd jet game, Indy game, and the Charger game.

    Actually I can't fault you for giving your Jets one win (at least yuo didn't say 2). I do think the Chargers are going to be facing some tough times this season, Year two under Norv (we all know he sux) and Tomlinson isn't geting younger. I think the Buff win last week of the seaon was kind of a stupid reasoning, they could be fighting for a wild card and we could have it locked up but if that is the only way you have them winning than shouldn't you give it to the pats until the Scenario is actually upon us. I don't think the Hawks are all that good Just because they are atop a bad division. That leaves the Colts game, which is always fun and I wont argue with you hear because either team could win even though my answer obviously is the Pats.

    Except for the fact that they were atop the weak division by not losing a single game.

    I voted 11 and 5, because I thought it would piss some of you guy's off.

    And because it is June, and as mention already predicting win/loss records this early is crap shoot any way

    I agree, it is way to early.:)

    I voted 14-2 because Denver and @Miami are traditional.
