I actually like our chances of making the playoffs this year or at least going .500, with our shcedule and key players with a year more experience. I think we should:
Buffalo-win
Pittsburg-lose
bye
cinn-win
Tenn-win
Sea-win
Indy-lose
Clev-win REVENGE
Jax-lose
Indy-lose
K.C.-win
Stl-lose
Balt-lose
Tenn-win
Ariz-win
Jax-win put Jax out of playoffs
SF-win Hello playoffs
maybe wishfull thinking but not out of our reach.

hmmmm wonder why that pittsburgh game changed? if you go to the main site here, it talks about SIX noon starts (there are two later starts), but I only find one...maybe it was a late change
"So to recap quickly – an early bye week, four playoff teams (Colts, Steelers, Rams and Seahawks), two prime-time games, six home starts at noon (sorry, tailgate aficionados), three sets of back-to-back home games and two sets of back-to-back road games."

I'm probably alone on this, but I really don't like the ESPN games...Let's not forget about the game last year when their announcers got all of our guys' names wrong and said, "Wow, that was such a beautiful pass" after Favre threw an INT...

I don't get it! We never get any love! We've beaten some good teams. And even if we don't beat'em, we at least make it come down to the wire. The Green Bay game last year was a prime example of that. Even though we lost, afterwards I was certain they were gonna give us at least ONE Monday night game this year. But two ESPN primetimes aren't bad, I guess. You gotta crawl before you walk...

Buffalo still has Holcombe as Losman's backup so if he starts stinking it up he could always be benched. Plus they've got a tough defense, and McGahee running the ball. Definately not going to take a team with a rookie QB forgranted this year.

I'm glad we are playing at Buffalo in September and not December.

The Bills were on a roll at the end of last season, and they obviously feel the offense will be better with Losman than they were with Bledsoe. It's moreso a case of how soon it will be better. It's gonna be a tough game, hopefully our boys can come out swinging and show that they've corrected some of our failings.

You never know which team is going to make a 180 turnaround and start destroying teams.

Last year the Jags, and Steelers both did that. So you cant say we should win these games and lose these games until a few weeks into the season.

I still think one of my favorite Oilers games of all time was the 10-7 win over the 49ers on Christmas Day in 1993.

Speaking of prime time games, unless I blinked my eyes once too often, it looks like Atlanta is hosting three Monday Night games and a Thanksgiving Game at Detroit.

Networks love Michael Vick.

Yep, but the Dallas Crapboys get their anual 2 MNF games, I swear it doesn't matter how much they suck they always get a boatload of Monday and Sunday night games.
