My point I'm trying to make? 2011 season is over and overall records are set.
Our 2012 opponents can get better or worse over the next 12 weeks. Lets say Brady and Ryan go down for the year this week and both teams crumble and finish below .500. We went from losing to good teams during a small portion of the season to losing to bad teams according to the finished record. Just like Steelers could get healthier and finish with a winning record. Pretty simple.
San Diego has a winning record going into this week right? If Denver beats them do we get credit for beating a team with a winning record or a .500 team?
