Yeah week 3 at Tennessee is a huge one. That will set the tone in the AFC South for a while whoever wins that. If we can come out of the first 3 weeks 2-1 with a win over Tennessee that is a promising start. Our last 5 games of the season are real winnable which is key if we are healthy.
I think TE is the easiest position for an athlete to transition into in the NFL. Tebow has the size and the knowledge of the game, so he has a good start. I expect he'll catch 22 balls for around 150 yards as the 3rd TE.
Yeah I think the Rams will be a tough game. I think we match up well against the Seahawks, were much superior than them in the trenches and our defense will set up to take away the deep threats posed by DK/Lockett. We'd be confident of both our running game and stopping their running game.
The game against the Titans in Week 3 in Nashville will be the tone setter for the AFC South. Weeks 8-10 were at home to the Titans, Jets and Jags, we should win that stretch 3-0.
I prefer to get the harder teams first, to avoid slip ups early on. A bit like the Jags Week 1 last year, I'd prefer to play these teams later on if they are out or almost out of the playoff hunt. As I said, hopefully we can get through the first 12 games in reasonable shape and in the hunt. Looking at the last 5 games, Texans, Pats, Cardinals, Raiders, Jags, I'd expect the Texans, Raiders and Jags to have nothing to play for, so 3 wins there. Cardinals could well be out of the picture too by Week 15.
Although going .500 through the first 8 games wouldn't be too bad. Games 9 and 10 are easier with the Jets and Jags. But then we have the Bills and Buccs. Tough schedule for us this season.
I read where, based off of teams rankings currently, that Tampa Bay has the easiest schedule.
