    There are so many predictions in the Schedule thread, so lets just put this one up. My predictions:

    1 Sept. 7 at Pittsburgh Steelers 1 p.m. L - In Pittsburgh, and is their home opener. Don't like our chances.

    2 Sept. 14 Baltimore Ravens 4:15 p.m. W - A Ravens team with a new coach, shaky QB, and the only team to give Miami a win last season.

    3 Sept. 21 at Tennessee Titans 1 p.m. W - The hell with Vince Young.

    4 Sept. 28 at Jacksonville Jaguars 1 p.m. W - We own them. No reason to lose to them this game, as long as we are healthy.

    5 Oct. 5 Indianapolis Colts 1 p.m. W - This is finally a win. AJ and company stay healthy.

    6 Oct. 12 Miami Dolphins 1 p.m. W - The Dolphins? We better not lose this one is what I say.

    7 Oct. 19 Detroit Lions 4:05 p.m. W - Detroit still searching for an identity. These guys are pretenders and our D can contain Kitna and their RB's.

    8 Oct. 26 Bye W - I'm sure we can win this one.

    9 Nov. 2 at Minnesota Vikings 1 p.m. W - Peterson is a beast, but here is to hoping Amobi eats him for lunch this game. Their don't have a strong receiver core, and D-Rob will probably be back for this game (especially after a bye). I call a win on this one.

    10 Nov. 9 Cincinnati Bengals 1 p.m. W - Not the same Cincy from even two years ago. They have been on the decline, and I don't see that changing this season.

    11 Nov. 16 at Indianapolis Colts 1 p.m. L - Peyton will want revenge.

    12 Nov. 23 at Cleveland Browns 1 p.m. L - I hate Cleveland.

    13 Dec. 1 Jacksonville Jaguars (Mon.) 8:30 p.m. W - Our boys always get hyped up for primetime, and once again we own the Jags. This is a win.

    14 Dec. 7 at Green Bay Packers 1 p.m. L - The cold is too much.

    15 Dec. 14 Tennessee Titans 1 p.m. W - Hey Vince, you aren't coming to Houston to win either.

    16 Dec. 21 at Oakland Raiders 4:05 p.m. W - DA RAIDAAAS!

    17 Dec. 28 Chicago Bears 1 p.m. L - Season closer and we rev up for the playoffs. Bears win this one as we just mostly play our backups and rest our starters.

    Record: 11-5

    Well, I always said I'd predict 8-8 every year until they did it.

    Now my prediction goes to Wild Card playoff berth......every year until they do it. Hopefully that doesn't take as long as my 8-8 prediction did.

    9-7 is a likely possibility. I just hope that we can beat those god forsaken Titans.

    You actually predicted 12-4. That would be nice. Especially with a 10 game winning streak during the season.

    It was technically a 12-5 including our bye week. :headhurts:

    So. 11-5.

    Nope, 11-5. And I have a 8 game winning streak during the season, not 10.

    Geez, we can't even wait to do this until after the draft?

    Fine - 9-7 is my pre-draft prediction. Our schedule is just SO brutal.

    Nope. Predictions were running wild in the schedule thread, so I thought making a thread would be a good idea.

    Fair enough... It's not like the draft is going to make us several games better anyway. I hope I'm wrong... I really want that Wild Card.

    all ready said if we win are divison games we will make the playoffs simple has that we can get 10 wins for sure

    but what no one talks about what if the worst case scerino happens and right out the gate we go

    0-4

    Pitts
    Ravens
    Titans
    jags

    i said it once and ill say it agian every team in the NFL is a tough team lets just go week bye week

    ANd iam sure we can compete with Pitts so its possible we can win are first 2 agian

    With the exception of the titans, our division has not got any weaker IMO.

    Pre draft prediction of 9-7, and an exciting season to the end.

    I'll do my full schedule analysis when schools out, but at a quick glance I say 10-6.

    Stealing GB's text (I got 8-8 last year, but was wrong on HOW we got there...)

    1 Sept. 7 at Pittsburgh Steelers 1 p.m. L - Road, first game, young team

    2 Sept. 14 Baltimore Ravens 4:15 p.m. W - Of course I'll be wrong on all of these, but how can we not win at home against a new coach and bad team?

    3 Sept. 21 at Tennessee Titans 1 p.m. L - Lost faith in this series.

    4 Sept. 28 at Jacksonville Jaguars 1 p.m. W - Despite their team getting better every year, so are we.

    5 Oct. 5 Indianapolis Colts 1 p.m. W - I alway pick more South games than we win. We HAVE to grab one of these this year.

    6 Oct. 12 Miami Dolphins 1 p.m. W - The Dolphins? We better not lose this one is what I say. ---agree with GB

    7 Oct. 19 Detroit Lions 4:05 p.m. W - HA! Miami Part II, unless they come out of the gate like last year.

    8 Oct. 26 Bye

    9 Nov. 2 at Minnesota Vikings 1 p.m. L - Away, CT and AP. Nuff said.

    10 Nov. 9 Cincinnati Bengals 1 p.m. W - Losing players, locker room problems, just shut down their passing game, I think we can. We'll see if Rudi and Kenny and Kenny are healthy.

    11 Nov. 16 at Indianapolis Colts 1 p.m. L - We're not winning both

    12 Nov. 23 at Cleveland Browns 1 p.m. L - Whereas I would have said "win" before, if Anderson can keep his magic going....

    13 Dec. 1 Jacksonville Jaguars (Mon.) 8:30 p.m. W - Our boys always get hyped up for primetime, and once again we own the Jags. This is a win. ---agree with GB

    14 Dec. 7 at Green Bay Packers 1 p.m. W - Young QB v. Texans + cold - his inexperience is wrose than ours

    15 Dec. 14 Tennessee Titans 1 p.m. L - I just don't believe.....

    16 Dec. 21 at Oakland Raiders 4:05 p.m. W - DA RAIDAAAS! --- agree with GB

    17 Dec. 28 Chicago Bears 1 p.m. W - Bear? Ha. Get a QB, some WR's and fix your aging/injured/uninspired "legendary" D.

    Record: 10-6 - good improvement, may not be playoff good.

    Week spot - picking 2 wins against Jax
    Guaranteed wins: Miami, Oakland

    This team's mantra heading into the season should be, win the AFC South. That is the goal, everything after that is gravy.

    1 Sept. 7 at Pittsburgh Steelers 1 p.m. W i like our chances... their o-line is ppretty poor, parker is coming off a broken leg and their D is decent

    2 Sept. 14 Baltimore Ravens 4:15 p.m. W New coach, shaky offence... schaubo throws us to victory

    3 Sept. 21 at Tennessee Titans 1 p.m. W this is the year we finally sink the titans

    4 Sept. 28 at Jacksonville Jaguars 1 p.m. L too good... after 3 tough weeks we take our first loss

    5 Oct. 5 Indianapolis Colts 1 p.m. L as long as peyton is there, its should be an L

    6 Oct. 12 Miami Dolphins 1 p.m. W better performance than last year

    7 Oct. 19 Detroit Lions 4:05 p.m. W This is a soft team that have lost quite a bit so far... a comprehensive win going into the bye

    8 Oct. 26 Bye

    9 Nov. 2 at Minnesota Vikings 1 p.m. W if they upgrade on tavaris, id probably change this.... they have a better team, we have a better qb

    10 Nov. 9 Cincinnati Bengals 1 p.m. W another soft team

    11 Nov. 16 at Indianapolis Colts 1 p.m. L sorry

    12 Nov. 23 at Cleveland Browns 1 p.m. W revenge...count me as somebody who's pretty down on DA... he was terrible the last few games (teams figured him out?)

    13 Dec. 1 Jacksonville Jaguars (Mon.) 8:30 p.m. W -Primetime, reliant will be rocking... we'll win a close one

    14 Dec. 7 at Green Bay Packers 1 p.m. W - GB minus favre doesnt really scare me too much

    15 Dec. 14 Tennessee Titans 1 p.m. W - sweep the tacks this yr

    16 Dec. 21 at Oakland Raiders 4:05 p.m. W a tentative victory although this could be like last yrs falcs game

    17 Dec. 28 Chicago Bears 1 p.m. W bears have a great D but they have nobody at qb,rb,wr and their o-line is terrible

    Record: a totally unrealistic 13-3... sorry

    more realistically we'll lose 1 to the tacks, browns and maybe vikes
