    Here are mine. A little overly optimistic I know. We do have a lot of winnable games though and our offense finally showed some improvement.

    Colts - W
    Dolphins -W
    Lions - W
    Bengals -L
    @Vikings -W
    Ravens -W
    @ Colts - L
    @ Browns -W
    jaguars -W
    @ Packers - W
    Titans - L
    @ Raiders -W
    Bears -W

    10-6. I can dream right? :texflag:

    I don't see us beating the Bengals. I think they will shred our secondary. Reason I have us beating the Colts this weekend is because I think we gained quite a bit of confidence against the Jags and combined with a bunch of emotion going into our first home game with our fans behind us hopefully will carry us to a win. I'm not too concerned with the Vikes. Despite our shortcomings on D, we have done very well against the run.

    Before the beginning of the season everyone said don't be surprised if we come out of the game 2-3 or 1-4. Now that we're in that position everyone is very pessimistic. The schedule just gets easier from here on out after this week. We'll be okay. Not great, but okay. I'll say 8-8.

    Not being the optimist some are, here are the grisly facts as I see them.

    Colts - L
    Dolphins - L
    Lions - W
    Bengals - W
    @Vikings - L
    Ravens - L
    @ Colts - L
    @ Browns - L
    jaguars - W
    @ Packers - L
    Titans - L
    @ Raiders - W
    Bears -L

    4-12, and that is throwing the boys a bone thinking they will sneak one off the Jaguars, could easily be 3-13 in my mind.

    I'm not one to pick a fight, but your logic escapes me on several levels.
    If we did, in fact, gain enough confidence to beat the Colts in the loss to Jacksonville, don't you think that beating the Colts would give us enough confidence to beat the Lions, then the Bengals?
    Also, saying the Bengals offense will shred our defense, but saying we'll beat Manning and the Colt offense is kind of illogical to me.
    You might be thinking of the Bengal offense of last year, or maybe even two years ago, but this year, they are abysmal.

    6-10. I think they could go 6-7 the rest of the way. The offensive line is improving every game. Depends on how rusty Robinson is when he comes back. And if the Aliens who stole the rain maker gives him back before too much longer. And takes their clone back..

    What I'm looking at is what the Steelers o-line did to our front seven as compared to what they gave up in their next games. If they are doubling Mario...and now Ryans has a bad ankle ... and no one else gets there....it doesn't take Matt Millon to see where this train wreck is heading. Every Qb is going to look like Otto Graham when we play them if they don't find a pass rush. And Reeves and Bennit are going to still be Reeves and Bennit, at least for the next four weeks.

    I have us 4-12. I hope I'm wrong because players we drafted will be leaving when they become free agents because they are tired of losing. Not to mention free agents that we want will go else where. We have seen time and time again big name free agents use the Texans for a pay day with another team by getting us to bid high in hopes to land them only to see them sign for a larger amount (by showing them our offer) with another team. And Kubiak needs to show this team and the fans he can be a hc and not just be an oc that is in over his head. And please fire Richard Smith sooner than later.

    I am not going to try and predict individual games, but I will predict this. The MOST wins we will have (and I don't think we'll make it) is 8. I think we are looking at only 6 or 7 wins this year.

    I think Steve Slaton will burn the Bengals all day long. Thus we will control clock and the Bengals offense will not see the field much. I think we can win that game. I'm not too confident against the Vikes in Minnesota. They play well there and their D is stronger than ours.
