    As of now, here's what I think....

    Jets W
    @Titans W
    Jags W
    Raiders W
    @Arizona L
    @Bengals W
    49ers W
    @Buffalo W
    @Indy W(first win in Indy, we're due)
    Titans W
    Colts W
    @Jaguars W
    Seahawks W
    @ Rams W
    @ Dolphins W
    Patriots L

    I know that means a record of 14-2, but I honestly believe we can beat these teams with the exception of Pats and Cards.

    That @ Arizona loss you have us at. What effect will having Antonio Smith in our midst have, surely he'll be able to help the coaches out a lot in the week beforehand with his insider knowledge of their scheme's etc on Defence?

    A little O/T I know but I just got thinking about it.

    I'd switch the mid-season Buffalo and Indy games. Buffalo to a W and Indy to a L. Just don't think we're solid or mature enough to take Indy down away. Buffalo is going to be a good game; two younger teams, middle of the season, both hungry for the playoffs. Should be a good one.

    You know I'm not flaming.... but you really think you guys will sweep us this year? It could happen, but I think you're setting yourselves up for a let down there.

    that was a stir the pot type of prediction for me. I actually see the TEN and JAX games being switched around as alot more reasonable. But either way, it keeps the record the same.

    We catch both sf and cards after their bye weeks those will be tough however indy is going to be coming from some tough games and so will the titans prior to seeing us . I like the late bye week but dislike those mid season away games .:texflag:

    My predictions:

    Jets W
    @Titans L
    Jags W
    Raiders W
    @Arizona L
    @Bengals W
    49ers W
    @Buffalo W
    @Indy L
    BYE (We're so going to kick the Bye's ass)
    Titans W
    Colts W
    @Jaguars W
    Seahawks W
    @ Rams W
    @ Dolphins L
    Patriots L

    Record: 11-5

    There are a few games mixed in there that could be tougher than they look at first glance. The Bengals game could be a tough one if Palmer is back at 100%, and if he's going to have some WRs to throw to it could be a shootout. The Raiders may end up being a tough game too if we come out flat like we did against them last time.

    Jets W - good team, but with QB questions and a new coach this early in the season, we roll through them.

    @Titans W - they'll have a bit of a let-down this year, but most importantly, we're facing them at home early in the season before injuries have mounted up. Our improving defense shuts down Whine and Dine, and we force Kerry Collins to try and beat us. VY comes in late to try and make something happen and throws a pick six.

    Jags W - Jags, in our house = win.

    Raiders W - after the loss last year, the team takes this game seriously, especially at home.

    @Arizona W - in a statement game, the Texans serve notice that they're for real. Warner and the offense light it up, but AJ proves he's the best WR in football, again.

    @Bengals W - No TJH, Chad Johnson being Chad JOhnson, and the Bengals defense being the Bengals defense. It's on the road, so it'll be closer than it should, but the team pulls it out.

    49ers W - another home win. Their QB problems are just too much to overcome as our improved defense takes it up a notch.

    @Buffalo W - Lee Evans looks up and realizes that Faggins is no longer covering him and has a quiet day. Toronto's offense is not enough to hang with ours, and our defense is good enough to contain the threats they have.

    @Indy W - After the Rosencopter game, the Texans know they can take the Colts now, and more importantly, the Colts know it.

    Titans W - the home win for the sweep on MNF. The Battle Red Texans strike again.

    Colts W - team's rolling now, and the division record is theirs to seal.

    @Jaguars W - this ends up being a close game, as the Jags learn from everyone else's game plans, but it's just not quite enough.

    Seahawks W - No RB, no longer a feared offensive line, and most importantly, they have to travel to Houston instead of the other way around.

    @ Rams W - this one almost seems like a gimme, but Kubiak leans on his team to seal the deal.

    @ Dolphins W - We own the Dolphins, and this is a scouting trip for the team's return in February.

    Patriots W - this is not the Pats team of old. Brady will be back, and by this point in the season, he'll probably be pretty well recovered, though he still won't be the 50-TD Brady. Still, the team wins in a shootout and knocks the Pats out of the playoffs.

    16-0!!

    Hey, it's April .....
