I guess I'd rather have 3 of the last 4 games be easier ones. Also getting the saints at home after the bye is helpful.

I expect 14-2, 12-4 at the worst. Anything short of a Lombardi is failure.

Make that 5 out of the last 6. It's definetly front loaded with tougher games.

At least 5 of the first 7 games will be nationally televised. Sweet.

I mean you never really know in regards to SoS until the games are played, but damn.
On paper, in April it definitely looks like a schedule where we'll have to finish strong down the stretch to get in the playoffs. No coasting in on a late losing streak off the strength of a fast start this year.
Just in case you guys forgot, everything you're worried about happened last year. And we won a playoff game!

We did start 2-4, we did not have a fast start.
We did coast in on a late losing streak, we did not finish strong.

Don't worry!

They got through the toughest part of that schedule too. Mid season had a streak of tough games

Well the second half of the schedule is looking decent for us. That first half is rough.

Wow Broncos will have to be a really good team to win 10 games. Not sure I see it.

its waaay too early to make any sort of a prediction on record

I like the way it set up for us...would rather stay a game or two over .500 all season and then run off the last 5 or so

anybody know why the nfc south home and away games are the same as 2008? @atlanta isn't a very easy game to win in the regular season.

First 8 games are tough. Would be surprised to see us better then 4-4 at that point. Would also be surprised to see Denver with more then two losses in their last 8.

10 wins is attainable.

The AFC North games are also the same locations as 2009. I thought those alternated. I guess I was wrong.

They played the Ratbirds at home in 96, 01, 05, and 06.

But yeah, every other time recently has been in BAL.

Brutal. I'd say that it's actually possible for them to have a successful season with a losing record.
