Hell no 8-8 isnt good enough. If Tebow was QB, I think 8-8 or 9-7 would be expected. We don't bring in a HOF QB for an 8-8 season. Period.

Threads like this are pretty absurd right now. We have no idea what the final roster will be like next year for any of these teams, and history has shown that outside of a few solid franchises the league is turning over constantly year-to-year.





Short answer: No.

I appreciate you taking the time to bring absolutely nothing to the table.

You made a thread to ask a question that's incredibly obvious and completely hypothetical. Even worse, there's been several threads just like this in the past week or so. Don't blame me if there's nothing to really add to your big What If? Table.

The simple answer is no, 8-8 wouldn't be any kind of 'success'.

There will be some significant changes to how good some of those teams will be next year - Right now I would say 9-7 is the minimum required for a succesful season in 2012 so 8-8 is not enough.

9-7 or 10-6 seems real if we nail the draft and free agency AND stay healthy next season. But like mentioned, it is way to early to play this game.

Considering that this year we overproduced and were not quite as good as our record indicated... hit some teams at the right times, etc.... Yeah, 8-8 would be a success next year. 8-8 will probably win the division again.

Agreed. Even with significant improvement from Tebow and the offense as a whole as well as the D....It might not necessarily be reflected in the W/L column.

I don't care who's on the schedule either because it's impossible to measure SOS until AFTER the season.

Said it in another thread that Denver has been a 6 win team for half a decade. Shanny coached 'em up a game or 2, McD's inexperience brought them right back down 6-10 and they were right there again this year.....Props to Denver for making the most of opponents mistakes though.

I expect a step backwards record-wise so I'd definitely be happy with 8-8 again.

I think its possible we have a better team in 2012 and end up with the same record. But its hard to tell in February what will happen in September.

So we will see.

For the most part, our record is no longer a concern of mine. All I care about now is winning the division, and then let's see what happens in the playoffs. If we win the west with a 8-8 or 12-4 record, then so be it.

We should be the class of the AFC West since the rest of the teams in the division have serious dysfunction issues. As EFX has said all season, the future is now.

I'm fairly certain that overall record plays some kind of role in who wins the division. I'll have to check.

I think 8-8 will be a miracle. Unless there is some sort of free agent haul that I just can't see happening this team just isn't good enough to compete with that schedule.
