Will win the next game.
Then three games in a row that are a bit scary.
Could be looking at a potential for 1-4 or 2-3 or 3-2 after the first 5 games are played. That's going to rattle a team that ended its season in New England looking like Gary's squad from his first couple of years here.
I'll say 3-2 would be a satisfactory scenario heading into week 6. Trying to stay positive, but I mean gosh...last year at this time we looked at our 2012 schedule and a lot of us nailed the predictions fairly quickly...and we ended up doing pretty much what a lot of us said we'd do. This year? No like at all.
That schedule looks rough the way it's stacked on home vs. road games and then the 3-straight games early on vs. really tough competition. Factor in that our final four games have 3 away games, ouchie.
Yes last year everyone on here had us starting 11-1
