    9-7 with 2 huge upsets, and two horrible losses to easy teams.

    9-7...we sweep the Jags and Titans, split with the Colts (there's 5 wins already). We get the other four wins against Oakland, Miami, Carolina, and Cleveland.

    A man can dream, can't he? :texflag:

    Mr White I'm with you 8 -8. If we're lucky we can go 9 -7 and sneak a wildcard spot. If we're lucky. and thats a BIG IF.:texflag: :texflag:

    Two-thirds of the NFL had record changes in 2006 of 3 or more games from their 2005 records. 5 of the remainder were playoff teams hovering at a high level. The NFL is a lot more fluid than folks predict every year.

    Thanks to a surprise win over the Colts my 6 & 10 prediction came through last year.

    PHP:
    This year I’m calling for 9 & 7
    Wins:
    KC, ATL., MIA., titans, Raiders, Browns, Tampa, Colts & Jags

    Losses:
    Colts, Chargers, Saints, titans, Denver, Panthers and Jags.

    With 10 & 6 a real possibility. If we can sweep the titans or beat Carolina.

    You know looking at the teams that you have us down as beating, 9-7 is actually looking pretty realistic..

    How about 9-7 and just out of the playoffs.

    yea, I dont think 9 & 7 will get us in; but it will be nice to be in the mix this year and make a serious playoff run in 08.

    I hate looking like a grumpy old pessimist here but for some reason i think our record will be 7-9. 9-7 is a real possibility and 10-6 is a long shot, if all the bounces and luck goes our way, but i think we're still a year away from a winning record. The team play will dramatically improve but they'll drop a couple games they should win because of their youth (maybe one to the titans or even the browns...) and theyll suprise someone like the saints or maybe even the chargers.


    if we go 10-6 that will be incredible, but i dont think we're a 10-6 team talent-wise yet. I dont think we'll be a "true" 10-6 team until next year or the year after.


    heres to hoping im dead wrong :texflag:

    Can I smoke that or does it have to be administered intravenously?

    Hehe, as much as I love Second Honeymoons take on the season (yes, I spilled my coffee yet again), I myself will chose the overly positive but somewhat realistic (it's subjective, I can say what I want) 12-4 season.

    Honestly I'm just thrilled by having someone not named Carr behind center :)

    Here is how i see it breaking down...before im mobbed, remember i was pretty damn close last year.

    7-9. This just isn't the year folks....we need one more.

    Schaub- somewhere in the neighborhood of 2900 yards passing, 14 tds, 11 ints.

    either/or...FWIW if I was a betting man I would put my money on 8 wins or less. Since I am not, I think we could go 11-5 if all our pieces fall into place. We have a young OL, young WR corps, young QB, with quality and depth at RB. We have a young defense that is DEFINITELY on the upswing. I think the opening game against KC is the most important game in the history of our franchise. Winning is contagious and we just need a little taste and a little confidence. Hopefully we keep the momentum that our locker room earned at the end of the season.
