They were talking this morning about how ESPN the mag picked the Pats to go 9-7 and miss the playoffs with the Fins winning the divsion. They pretty much laughed that off but then turned to how many publications only have them at 10 wins so is it really that far fetched. They conceeded an at worst 5-1 divisional record. Fair enough I can see them slipping up once. But then they said their aren't 5 more clear cut wins. Even worst case in my mind lets say they go .500 in the remaining games. NFCS Panther, Bucs, Saints and Falcons. Really 2-2 is worst case. AFCN Browns, Bengals, Steelers and Ravens. Again cannot see worse than 2-2Denver and Houston. 1-1 is pretty reasonable. I just cannot for the life of me minus a 2008 Nightmare at Patriot Place part 2 see worse than 11-5 as the worst case scenario. In my mind 5-1 divsion, 3-1 vs NFCS, 3-1 vs AFCN and 2-0 vs Houston and Indy........ooops I mean Denver.
