I think we will win a few, it is going to be hard going but the D is looking better and so is our run game. I think KC will be our first victim and then the bengals we could possibly get on a role there. I think if the D plays the way it did Sunday and our Offense has a good game we could give TB a hard time of it and possibly haul that one out.

If it weren't for our secondary I would say we could possibly go as high as 9-7. I think Painter will do well, the running game will continue to improve and the run d will be stout all year. Our secondary, however, will keep getting torched and we could allow a record setting number of passing yards this year. I think 3-13 or 4-12 is probably about right but each loss will be hard fought and kept relatively close like the Steelers game.

If we continue to give the cushion that we give to all recievers our secondary will always be at a disadvantage. Maybe a little bump n run once in a while, be a little more physical with the recievers coming off the line thats all I ask.

I expect we will win some of our next few games.

I'm hoping that the secondary improves as the year goes on. There is a lot of youth back there - including two drafted players who haven't even made the field yet.

pretty hard to go 0-16. even a bad team ..any given sunday and all.

right now I'd say 3-5 wins also.

However, if the D continues to improve and be motivated..painter becomes decent..more wins are in the realm of possiblility. Even 8-8 WC..one never knows:) (ok that's a stretch)

Agreed...I would really like to see what Johnson, Rucker and Thomas can do. Same with Lefeged and Caldwell who, due to Bullitt's injury we are going to be able to see. We definitely need to know what we have in these guys so we'll know which positions are of the biggest need heading into the draft. :)

Sticking with my 2-4 win prediction.

I say we at least beat either KC/CIN...

....and one of the games out of TEN x2 and Jax x2

Unless Painter really surprises then I don't think we stand a chance against Tenn.. They actually look pretty good. I see the possibility of beating KC and Jax(maybe twice). Realistically thats all I see. I don't even see us beating Cincy at this point.

cincy has been competetive had a shot at beating sf and denver late.

I'm very enthusiastic about this team as long as we're watching Painter improve instead of watching Collins fade. .

The defense CAN play like this every week and may well get better. The front seven may be the best we've had in years, and the secondary is young. If the offense can run on the Steelers than they can run on anybody, and they WILL get better as the Oline plays together more. And the more Painter plays the less mistakes he will make.

Initially I thought that we had an absurdly hard schedule, but the balance of power is constantly changing, and most teams on our schedule have already demonstrated the ability to lose to anyone. Sure, NE and NO may well light us up, but most games should be competitive, and we could win any of them. In fact once they get a taste for it, who knows.

This could be a fun season.

If you think we will go 0-16 go cheer for another team.

I'm glad you have great reading comprehension because I explicitly stated I didn't say we were. I wanted to get the opinion of other fans that's the point of the thread.

I also agree we have a good shot of beating the Chiefs and the Bengals at the least.

I just hope injuries don't start catching up to us.

To the guy that said we don't stand a chance against Tennessee....are you joking? They just lost Kenny Britt for the season, and Chris Johnson has been terrible so far. They beat a Ravens team that was SPENT from their opener against Pittsburgh, and lost to the Jags for Pete's sake!! They are beatable for sure, a tough out, but don't make them sound like the Packers....

I think 3 wins is the maximum. The only team, IMO that is in as much flux is cincinatti. I think we COULD win that game, but no guarantee. KC is terrible terrible but they have a better qb if he gets his stuff together. So that one is a toss up to me. I see us having a chance at jax.

Our defense looked much better this weekend but I don't beleive that they are what we saw on Sunday. Freeney and Mathis always seem to make the big plays under the lights. The defense played well, but Rothlisberger also really tried to give the game away by not getting rid of the ball. I applaud the D but I don't think we will see alot of qb's who will take care of the ball taht poorly.

I see 3 max.

but 0 wins is entirely possible IMO. But I figure we sneak one or two out

If we had an office pool, I'm going with 4-12 as my best guess to win the pot. I think we will have several more close games and we'll get lucky on a couple games with turnovers, etc., but I would prefer going 0-16 rather than 7-9. Both of those miss the playoffs, so they are equally unsatisfying from that standpoint, but picking 1rst instead of 10th or 15th might really pay off over the last years of the Manning era, assuming it still continues.

As Dungy says, he isn't dead, so I'm guessing we'll have another few years.

Now, if we had even an average NFL quarterback, I'd say we still have a good chance for the playoffs, but we don't have that.

Exactly, if we are not going to make the playoffs the less games we win the better. Wining 5 or 6 games accomplishes nothing except getting us worse draft picks.

    • Yeah, I'm inclined to think he could be gone too, but I have seen him go in the 3rd in rankings and DEs tend to be all over the place based on projections vs where they actually go on draft day. But it's a bit of wishful thinking. I don't think he goes in the first though.
    • i think it’s very important that we invest in a FA backup tackle to go with Holden.   A low profile, under the radar player for quality depth.    If we’re drafting our future starting LT,  I don’t want to also spend a quality pick for quality depth.   The kid won’t be ready and too many assets would be invested in one area.   Normally that wouldn’t bother me, but this year we have too many pressing needs. 
    • This is what I see happening as well.  I see a decent start to the season and Wentz gets stronger as the season goes on when he starts to regain his ingame confidence.  It is one thing to do it in practice when nobody is hitting you but I think there will be some in game confidence that he will need to regain as he starts to trust the team and his mechanics again.      Unlike Philly I think Indy will be more understanding of a slow start and allow Wentz to gain that confidence instead of fans and media tearing him apart in the media.   
    • Why don't we try and draft RB Najee Harris for our 21st pick instead, this would be like a 1 and 2 punch like the Bucs in Jones and Fournette.  But I'm leaning towards drafting an edge like Rousseau as well too.  Many options this offseason...
    • Seeing what Wentz did with Jeffrey I think Pittman is going to have a huge year. Patmon will be fun to watch too.
