5-11 on the low side I think, if the D continues to improve we could pull out a few more of the possibles, @KC, CIN, DAL, NYG, and SD all look like outside chances, but improvement could bring them within our grasp. The rest of the team has improved, but we will be searching for a true QB for some time I think. We will miss our pick, but it won't be a top 5 and Smith looks good so that will pass. Playoffs are a season or more away at best, and I still don't fully trust McDaniels with personel decisions, so missing next years pick isn't the worst thing in the world.

NO he has not. Just last night he was thrown down by Earl Bennett on a 3rd down conversion on Cutler's 90+ yard drive to end the half--then he was beaten for a 40 yard pass by a rookie who was obtained via a draft pick in the cutler trade --then he was run over by Adrian Petersen in the 4th qtr...in SF he would have been beaten for a long gain if Alex smith was a decent QB and in SEA he did little except get hurt--he is not worth a 1st rond pick--let alone a top 15 (more than likely top 5 ) in 2010.......

I have to admit, I was not worried until last night. Our offense is going to struggle to score points. It will help if Marshall get his s**t together and Moreno stays healthy. But we don't seem to have any deep threat at all. No receivers with that ability (even Marshall) and Orton doesn't seem to have the arm strength. Hell I'm not even sure we have an intermediate passing game. Watching screen after screen is brutal. They are such low percentage plays when you count for the risk of penalty, dropped balls, tackles behind the line of scrimmage, etc... And what's worse is that even if they do manage to win a few games, I fear it will be very ugly grind-it-out type games.

I am also VERY concerned about the continuation of the turnover margin trend. That's -8 for those of you counting at home in 3 games. While I think Orton's 3 INTs in game 1 were a bit of a fluke, I don't think the lack of turnovers caused by our D is a fluke at all. We need to win the turnover margin more now than ever because or offense have very obviously gone backwards.

I went with 6 wins just because I think Oakland and KC are that bad. I also expect this team will improve as the season wears on (for a change) because its relatively young and there was so much change. At least I hope they improve after that debacle last night...

I went with 9 wins... though nothing would surprise me, there are just too many unknowns.

With a new system and players on both offense and defense I think too much has been made of preseason. If I remember correctly the Lions were 4-0 last preseason?

Wait till the games start to matter before letting the doom and gloom set in IMO.

Normally I would agree with this line of thinking. However, I don't in this case for a couple of reasons. The first is that there has been only marginal improvement over the 3 games so I don't see a reason to think they are suddenly going to jump on a parabolic learning curve. The second is that our #1s are getting more reps (in practice and in games) than most other teams. And finally, McDaniels himself acknowledged they not holding much back in terms of scheme or play calling because they are trying to get the players used to the new system.

Well that was the enigma that was a Shanahan coached team. We were better than both those teams -- by a pretty good margin -- last year. We should have had 4 wins. And of course if we had won those games, we would have made the playoffs and Shanahan would likely still be coach of this team!

Sure we've taken at least a half-step backwards this year, but I expect us to be mentally tougher and beat the teams we are supposed to beat. And, KC is going through much of the same transition type issues we are. They just fired their OC a week before the season! Is is just me or does that smell like a problem?! And Oakland is Oakland. Their HC beat up their assistant coach. They lost a preseason game 45 - 7 after hitting dance clubs all night. They drafted a second round WR with the #7 pick overall! Neither of those clubs has surpassed us... at least not yet. IMO.

So yeah its not a given, but there's hope in me that we can beat both those teams. Plus its a sign that while the schedule is tough, they aren't all unwinnable.

KC

4-2 in the division: Split with SD & sweep either KC or Oak, but not both.

2-2 vs. NFCE: People are giving this conference way too much credit based on LY. Wash & Dallas look like the most obvious wins, but I could see losing to Dallas but beating an uninspired NYG on Thanksgiving. NYG plays what should be a good ATL team the week before Turkey day and has DAL, PHI & WASH immediately after. Classic look ahead game. WASH also gets ATL before DEN and has DAL & PHI after. PHI has DAL in week 17 after DEN as well.

2-0 vs. Ohio. Don't let this vanilla pre-season fool ya. A 10 point win over the Bengals is going to shock the talking heads on opening day and they will carry that momentum into the home opener.

2-2 vs. INDY/PITT/BAL/NE: Balty is a winnable game off of the BYE. One thing I won't miss from Shanahan regime is never being able to win 1:00 East Coast starts. I have no idea what to expect out of the NE game. Indy will be tough OTR as will PITT at home but .500 ball vs. these four is not unreasonable.


10-6....Book it.

Yet they claim how poor a season this has been and act like so much more should have been accomplished and expected more. What BS.

This thread was after at least 3 games of the PS. The 1st one which I couldn't find had everyone going from 9-7 up to 13-3 and that was before the PS.

I think this is pretty accurate considering a +- of 2. Not alot of people going 10 or more wins here. I am going to bed, you can dig up the other Prediction thread if you want.

Funny, I was trying to find you and Popps in there, but I guess you were both afraid of putting your money where your mouths are... okay maybe I wouldn't want my money there either.

I think where you are confused... is that I was fully on-board with the changes we made this year, and perfectly ready to endure a rebuilding season to get to our ultimate goal.

Thank your pal Barryr on that one, he so confidently and incorrectly claimed that all the Mcdaniels bashers predicted few wins, the extension being that all the Mcdaniels anti-bashers must have predicted more wins.

I knew you predicted fewer wins than I did, and I know we are at opposite ends of the scale when it comes to warm feelings for Mcdaniels.

What I never understood is how losing became acceptable? One thing we have seen demonstrated clearly is that you don't improve by losing.

I doubt he put it like that.

What he probably meant was... these people claiming we were (literally) setting the franchise back 15 to FIFTY years were just out of the minds.

It boils down to whether or not you were on board.

He was.

I was.

This was never a "predict the right amount wins and you're the best fan" contest.

I have no idea why guessing wins before we ever played a game would make someone a "better" fan.

You were with it or against it when it went down. It's that simple.

Popps
01-01-2010, 09:19 PM

No one said it was.

It's about relative expectations.

This team exceeded most of ours around here.

The only people happy about losing are those who love to parade their hatred for the franchise around here after losses.

Other than that, no real fans want to see the team lose. But, you also have to put a first year coach/offense/defense/staff into proper perspective.

As I said, we've exceeded my expectations from a WINS standpoint, which is fantastic.

Why should I be upset about that?

I supported Mcd when he traded cutler as cutler sucks.

After bye week, the moves he made(replacing Kern with Berger) and he couldn't adjust once all the teams have the tape.

you like Rasta, Mock and of course bf7 all had us barely winning any games. BarryR is correct as those that had us as a laughing stock of the NFL were proven wrong but need something to be correct on something; Your opinion isnt based on facts. Enjoy the hate.

No kidding.

I secretly believe a lot of their posts were written in the preseason, but they had to choke on them during the win streak.

But like they say, the roaches come out during a fire...

dont get me wrong though on starting 6-0 and then going 2 of the next 7. This poll is based on the whole season regardless of how we got there. 9 wins better be coming around 4:15PM Sunday afternoon (PST of course).

Bullshiat. I predicted 5 wins, and I certainly didn't expect the miracles in Cincy or Dallas.

either way we are finishing better than most people thought tip your hat to McD for that we hit a bump but were not an elite team yet so don't get your hopes up but were on the right track.

Thank your pal Barryr on that one, he so confidently and incorrectly claimed that all the Mcdaniels bashers predicted few wins, the extension being that all the Mcdaniels anti-bashers must have predicted more wins.

I knew you predicted fewer wins than I did, and I know we are at opposite ends of the scale when it comes to warm feelings for Mcdaniels.

What I never understood is how losing became acceptable? One thing we have seen demonstrated clearly is that you don't improve by losing.

Wow, you are truly a goof. First, I didn't even state "all" and I didn't even single you out or mention you specifically at all either, but seeing how you take offense to McDaniel bashers, then one can see where your thinking lies.

Just as we finished so strongly Shanahan's last year or heck, his last 3 years as coach? Were you calling for his head after any of those seasons?

I had 6 wins, so I'm glad that they did better than what I thought they'd do. I was very wrong about the defense. It was great to see major improvements on that side of the ball. But I was close to being right about the offense. I was never a fan of Orton and he didn't do much to change that.

I must have missed this poll but I felt we had a good chance to win 10 games and if we beat KC and had beaten Oakland like we should have at home I would have been right on the money. I will say this I am not as high on McD as I was at the beginning of the season. I am disappointed with his moving away from the ZBS (a season too early IMO) and I think calling Marshall out in public is a stupid ego driven move that would have been better handled in house. Other than that I felt he had a pretty good season and look for him to improve nest year.

Oh and running Moreno up the middle time after time was less than excellent too.
