    I have to admit that I predicted 11-5 and division winners. I ignorantly felt Indy was going to drop off this year. Oh well...

    Here is to a great 2010-11 season!

    The curse of the perpetuating lie that Indy is dropping off. I figured they'd be 10-6 with a good shot. I was one game off and you can take the word "good" off the last statement.

    I thought Slaton would get injured and the offense would struggle with the turds we had behind him, but Schaub and 'dre stepped up big time and topped my 7-9 prediction.

    I thought 10-6. That would have done it. Oh well.

    9-7 and no playoff. I posted it on here somewhere at the beginning of the season.

    I posted 9 - 7 at the first of the year myself. Wish I had been wrong.

    I was in the 9-7 or 10-6 camp, can't remember exactly. It ended about where I thought it would. We lost some we should have won and vice versa....

    Preseason? I was thinking 10-6 or 11-5.

    After we lost Brisel, Pitts, and Slaton started fumbling like mad I was thinking 6-10! I thought that was damn near a lead pipe lock when we got to 5-7. I really never expected to run the table on the last four games.

    So, 9-7 is disappointing relative to my initial predictions, but given some of the crap that went down during the season, I'll take it.

    Pretty much the same here. 11-5 with the thought Indy would drop back some and we might contend for the division.

    Oh how painfully close we were to the playoffs. Oh how painfully close to a 15-1 record.

    Next year better be a leap forward because the training wheels are off.

    9-7 and challenging for the playoffs. I didn't expect them to make the playoffs but I thought it was a possibility.

    Going into the season, I was thinking 9-7 with an outside shot at the wild card. One of the only times I've been disappointed about being correct on something.

    I said 10-6 maybe 11-5 in the offseason, then retreaded (think that's the word) back to 9-7 maybe 10-6 after preseason.

    I predicted 11-5. That said, I guess 9-7 isn't too bad. I am really excited about this team next season though. I truly believe they turned the corner in beating the Pats the way they did today. September can't come soon enough!
