    I thought we would be 8-8.

    I think I picked 8-8 as well, I might have streetched it to 9-7. I sure as hell did not foresee 2-12 at this point.

    Over .500 - 9-7 with and outside shot at 10-6 if the everything fell right.

    It didn't.

    I said either 6-10 or 10-6 depending on the defense. What a crazy season...

    You covered about half the spectrum there - way to commit!

    I was hopelessly optimistic. I thought we would wrap up between 9-7 and 11-5. Somewhere in there based on injuries. I never saw this coming because I believed most everything the Texans told me. I won't be making that mistake again anytime soon.

    I said 6-10 or 7-9, and y'all slammed me for being a negative Nellie.

    You see, unlike most of you, (and you know you are) I didn't see any sound reasons to have high expectations. But that's under the bridge.

    I project 5-11 next year.

    I said 7-9 or 8-8.

    Next year I really think things will improve and we can reach that again.

    I said 9-7 with an outside chance at 10-6. Never, ever did I imagine 2-12 or even 4 - 12. Who knew? I think this team had best go at least 8-8 next year or McNair will be breathing fire and the fans will be ready to start "executing."

    I started to worry a little when we let go what I thought were good stable players so early on. We haven't had a TE to speak of since B Miller was let go, although Rivers has been somewhat productive as of resent. I still thought we'd be north of .500 though.

    I said 9-7... maybe 10-6. I would of been happy with 8-8. Anything less is a sign of degressing which I didnt see happening at all. The loss of Glenn and Sharper had a far greater affect on our team than I expected.

    An improvement was what I was hoping for, and this team seemed like they were on the right track to get better and better.

    I was hoping for 8-8. Anything better than that would be icing.

    Next year....who knows? idonno: With no idea of our coaching staff and which players will still be here, along with new faces, I'd say it would be optimistic to hope for 6-10.

    I had 9-7 and tied for 2nd place in the AFC South. :crying:
     
  19. Looking at the schedule and the loss of veterans I predicted 5-11. I might be 1 shy, but I feel for the 9-7 guys. The same ones that ripped me for calling this out.

    I thought 7-9 to 9-7.

    Hey but at least I did predict that the Dolphins would win at least 7 games (on that prediction thread). Who else thought that before the season started?
