I agree with the record, but we win against the Chargers and lose to the Broncos.

Wayyyyy to early to start talking about predictions.

 

Let's just worry about this year and what's ahead of us.

9-7. Wild card again. 6th seed. We win the SB AGAIN. As we do this year. Everyone fears us because we are unpredictable.

Thank you.  I think this thread is several months premature.  We don't know who we'll keep, who we'll draft, or who we'll sign in FA.  Let's focus on the here and now and enjoy this incredible ride.

 

The only prediction I'm making is Sun's game - I'm thinking we win it 23-20 on a late AV FG.  Luck has his 3rd straight game without a pick and actually completes over 50% of his passes.

Too early but I'll play the game. If I put a tilde(~) next to it could go either way due to it being too early.

To sum it up we could go 10-6 same as this year or as I think we pull out a W we shouldn't get and finish out between 10-6 and 12-4.

To the OP......it is way too early for me to talk about these things. For me, it's like looking under the flap of a present before it's time to open it. It might be a little exciting, but it disrespects the event.

 

If there is anything we have learned, it's that NO game is predictable. On paper doesn't mean junk now. It's the will of 33 guys that day. That is why the NOW is so important. This could be the best record we have for a couple of years. Enjoy the moment. The future will get here all too soon.

McAfee signs elsewhere and we go 0-16. 

 

 

Yeah, right!!!! Neither will happen so I say we go 14-2.

Well be facing what's supposed to be tougher competition, but it doesnt always work out that way, just ask the Pats. We should have a better squad too.

I'll go with 10-6

It depends on when we face them.

 

Good defensive teams like Texans, Bears, 49ers - you face them later in the season because chances are, they are worn out, or have injuries on D and defensive teams start off with a better rhythm than offensive teams.

 

Good offensive teams like Packers, Broncos, Patriots - you are better off facing them earlier in the season before they establish good rhythm on offense, IMO.

 

If both our Texans games are early in the season (first 5 or 6 games), I dont think our chances are great for the division, IMO. If we play the Chargers in December on the road, it increases the likelihood of a loss, IMO. Plus, Jeff Fisher is an unpredictable bugger!!!

 

I'd say we split with the NFC West 2-2, split with the AFC West 2-2, and split the Bengals-Dolphins games 1-1. We will go 4-2 in the division to go 9-7. Of course, my prediction is as premature as all of ours that are speaking in hypotheticals :).

I'm not playing the prediction game, but I believe this how the schedule looks if Mia remains in 2nd place -

 

Home: Hou, Ten, Jax, Mia, Den, Oak, SF, Az

Away: Hou, Ten, Jax, Cin, SD, KC, Sea, StL

 

SF gets paired up with AZ and Sea gets paired up with StL.

 

If the Jets beat Buff and Mia loses to NE, then Mia & the Jets finish 7-9 and we host the Jets next year instead of Mia (Jets win the tiebreaker for 2nd place based on a better division record).

Save some of this stuff for the off-season when we have nothing to talk about.

12-4 easily.

 

12 and 4 is never easy.

 

Not for any team.    Not for the Patriots or the Texans or the Packers or 49ers or anyone.

 

13 and 4 is really, really hard to do in the NFL.

 

If we do go 12 and 4,  no one will think of it as easy....

    • I know ;) my point was that they did try it and decided against it for the time being. 
    • No worries. I have lots of brain farts myself, gives a whole new meaning to being filled with gas hahaha
    • In terms of calculating ratings, I've always wondered how viewership is tabulated in an era when fans can record games to watch later at their leisure as opposed to the designated time slot on a specific network.    We live in an on demand era now where networks don't get to call the shots anymore meaning consumers can now control when programming is watched & consumed. I think about this a lot. When there was only NBC, ABC, CBS, PBS, & the broadcast day ended at midnight literally vs now with cable, satellite, streaming services, & entertainment options tailored to the specific person etc. etc.    Heck, I even remember when TV programming directors tried to sue VCR companies for copyright infringement just because new technology allowed customers to record & play back programming on the original antenna based networks growing up.    A pet peeve of mine is laptops & cell phones that allow programming on the go at airports, in cars, & on trains because I miss how important TV & radio used to be as a family event & bonding experience, which doesn't exist anymore--the mystique & magic of TV & radio as a communal event. I'm a historian/archivist by profession so I always notice generational changes over time. I grew up with a radio straight out of FDR's "Fireside Chats" too until a tornado demolished it. I miss that radio too. 
    • Beautifully stated CC1. Not that this situation applies to every NFL player of course, but there is something to be said for athletic individuals pampered a significant portion of their lives due to their speed, strength, & agility. I agree.    Yes, I know. There are gritty, humble, undrafted success stories out there too. 
    • According to a Colts.com article, Doyle is wildly popular in the locker room because of his great attitude and how he goes about his business.  Barring injury, he should be a big weapon for us.  Monachino said having Robinson back opens up our defensive playbook.  Bortles is still young, so I'm hoping we can frustrate him with our secondary, while our linebackers stop the run.  We should see Dline get pressure with Anderson back.

    • Welcome here Nils!   I can tell you, most of football fans in Hungary are Patriots fans...unfortunately. 
    • Hi, Nils here....   I know a lot of Europeans support the Patriots, but all I can say is no way man, no way!   I'm not entirely sure when I started to follow and cheer for the Colts, but I has no shame in admitting that it was when Manning begun to really shine. It was probably back in 1999 because I seem to remember that play-off game against the Titans.   I also remember the I loved how the Colts would play a beautiful offensive game whereas other teams were boring with their defensive strengths. Aaaahh, those were the days!   I was introduced to American Football during my American Politics/presidential election study in Washington D.C. in the fall of 1996 (Clinton vs Dole). Didn't really get attached to any team back then, so you can say that Redskins just left me totally uninspired.   It is a great and welcoming forum here - and that is just how I remembered America too.
