i've got us going 9 and 7 and finishing second or third in the division but missing the playoffs. to me the key is that we sweep everyone in our division except the colts but it doesn't account for how the other two teams do outside of our division.

Countdown to a hundred posters telling you that we are 4 wins or less due to last Sunday.

You can't tell what any of these teams will be like (or us) when we play them. I'm still sticking with my original prediction that we'll win between 7 and 9 games this year, but against who I can't say.

Did you see the Colts? Harrison has lost a step. Gonzalez didn't look crisp at all. Their defense was flying all over the place at nothing in particular. I think at home, they are definiately beatable.

The Bears are also beatable. Especially by week 17. They will have tons of guys on IR

As for the Packers and the Vikings, I think both are very good teams

Peyton Manning was obviously rusty........by the time we play the Colts, Manning is going to be firing on all cylinders. Also it doesn't matter if Harrison has lost a step, because our corners can't even take a couple of steps before they trip over themselves........our secondary sucks.

After watching our defense's performance in the preseason and now in week 1, I don't see how anybody could predict this team to win 10 games this season. We have absolutely NO RUNNING GAME and we can't stop the run (can't stop the pass either)........that's not really a formula the screams "winning/playoff team" to me.

Dude, preseason is what it is...preseason. The Pitt game was one game against a very good team at their home field. Let's all just make like Fonzies and be cool. If they get blown up this weekend, well, that might be another story. The season is upon us folks, let's soak it in while we have it. Give it a nice wet lickery kiss MMMMMMWHAAAAA

Flacco had 129 yards passing.

And a flukey rumble for a TD.

Ravens are dead meat. But I ain't eating crow on this one, unless we win...because we will have eaten a raven. I need to go to bed.

Well....I just don't think we can hang with Tennessee now that the worst quarterback in NFL history is fake hurt....putting in Kerry Collins renders them almost unbeatable.

Think we can win nine if things go our way, though.

Fixed it, I need to go to bed too. You know there are dudes in Tennesse that actually hunt them and EAT them? Yup, I'll stick to dove breast wrapped in bacon with jalapeno, mmmm yummy.

LOVE your avatar.

That's Dwight Yoakum from the movie "Slingblade" right?

"WE DON'T NEED TO PRACTICE, RANDY!!!! Now all ya'll get the ___ out! Get out!" LOL. One of the best acting roles. Ever.

Wow, I think I just had a flashback to 2005.....


The "preseason is preseason" excuse doesn't fly with me. Not being able to make basic tackles, being completely out of place in coverage or just blowing basic coverage, not being able to stop the run, and not being able to run the ball, aren't things that can just be excused as "it's just preseason".

I have seen nothing from this team thus far that warrants "ten win season" predictions for them, sorry. They will be lucky to get back to the 8 wins they had last season, all I'm hoping for is that after this season they finally address the coaching issues on the defensive side of the ball.

Didn't Vinny let him off on a technicality, something about Slaton getting the first rushing attempt?

We have a new run blocking scheme. We need to give it more than 1 game
