Last year, people thought we'd be 11-5 or 12-4, maybe even 13-3.
As the year wore on, the predictions looked spot-on.
I don't see the same optimism this time around. I was one touting we'd have a really nice record when the 2012 schedule rolled out, this time around with what I've seen of last year's patterns...not so much.
1.) Opening game is a trouble spot
2.) Second game is doable
3.) Next three games are definitely tough
4.) Our primetime games are always a bit shaky
5.) Late-season skid and inability to close out HFA by beating the Colts? Yep.
Gary Kubiak and Matt Schaub have to do some very special things in 2013 in order for us to retain the AFC South and improve our playoff record.
