    I think best case scenario we finish 8-8,more likely it will be 6-10. But I'll take that after a 1-4 start.

    It comes down to the next three games.

    Lose 'em all, and we're looking at draft positioning.
    Lose any two and we're fighting for 8-8.
    Lose one and we're dark horses.
    Win 'em all ... and we're serious wild card contenders.

    Game 1 vs. Ten - prove that we're not going to get beaten by a team we should beat

    Game 2 vs NYG - if we win this one, people are going to wake up fast

    Game 3 vs Jax - realistically, if we want a wild card spot, we can't be 3rd in the division

    At the beging of the year I thought a 4-6 win season was all we were getting however with our win against the Jags and with the players buying into the system I think we can get 6-8 wins here's where.

    Titans-Win This one is going out to all the Carr haters...Still want VY
    Titans-Win This one is soley for Bud
    Bills-Win but only if the defense cotinues to improve
    Raiders-Win and with the first pick the Raiders select...........
    Browns -Win sweet revenge for that last week debacle 2 years ago
    Jags-Win this pick is simply because the Jags are our bicthes

    We also have a good shot at beating the Jets but the are playing very good football right now if we win this one we will lose one of the previos maybe the Jags but I doubt it. Pats and Colts I am not so optimistic about but who knows??

    we are only one or two good off seasons away from contention.:redtowel:

    I think we're a 6-10 team with a few close losses in the second half of the season.

    Winning against the Jaguars was nice, and I never want to diminish a winning effort, but Jax played a horrible game against us. You can't plan on our opponent shooting themselves in the foot every week.

    We should watch out for the Jets.

    They got blown away by the Jags 41-0 but other than that they have played well

    I see us beating the

    Bills,
    Raiders,
    Titans (in Houston), and
    Browns (we stomp them this time)

    to go 6-10.

    It is possible we could sweep the Titans and also beat the jets, making us 8-8 this year, but I really wouldn't count on it. Of course, anything can happen and injuries, both to us and our opponents, will make a difference.

    6-10 may not sound real great, but it's a huge improvement over last year.

    I printed a schedule off the website and I am showing we are playing Pittsburgh that week. Is that correct?

    Houston, again.
    I have said 6-10 sense pre-season and see no reason to change.

    Oh yeah. Here is my deal on the record.

    I think we should stay aware that this is still a young team and inconsistency will play into it. We need to go on a week by week basis. I believe we can win and be 3-4 after 7 weeks.

    But since we are doing scenarios I see us beating Tenn, beating a team after that , and then losing to the Jags at home. 4-5 after week 9 is alot better than where I thought we would be.

    Most probable outcome:
    @Titans - W
    @Giants - L
    @Jags - L
    Bills- W
    @Jets- L
    @Raiders- W
    Titans- W
    @Patriots- L
    Colts- L
    Browns- W

    This would have us finish at 7-9, but if we take it to the Jets it could be 8-8

    We don't play Pitt this year. AFC East, NFC East plus last year's 4th place from AFC North (Cleveland) and West (Oakland). Jax drew Pitt by virtue of both teams placing 2nd in the division last year.

    8-8 was my prediction after the preseason and before the first real game. It could still happen, but I'd be really surprised.

    I think we can pull out 8-8, beating Cleaveland in the last game of the season at home (sound familiar) and continue the path of the first three years (in terms of getting better every year). However, we still have to take this one game at a time, any road game in the NFL is no gimme, especially when you are 0-10 in your last 10 road games...

    I'm still thinking 5 - 6 wins. I hope they don't start looking ahead to the second half of the season, though, and instead concentrate on what will be this year's most important game: the next one.

    Currently, the next one is Tennessee. They need a win here to boost themselves mentally. (The Texans lost twice last year to a Titans team that they should have beaten.) Also, the win moves them further away from the basement. In fact, if the Jags lose to Philly (always a chance there), then the Texans are tied with the Jags for second in the AFC South. So Sunday's game is the most important one of the season and to treat it as anything less is not giving it due diligence. The Titans are not going to roll over for the Texans. In their minds, this is one of the only truly "winnable" games they have, and they have beaten the Skins, who throttled Houston.

    For Coach K, this is a very important game because he is taking on one of the popular picks "he" passed over. He doesn't just need Mario to have a good day, he needs the Texans defense to keep Vince Young on the floor.
