Maybe it is me but the whole "how many wins" fight in this thread seems pretty premature. We don't even know who will start and we have 4 preseason games to look at the offense and defense. I know there will be a ton of these threads in August but to go on for pages back and forth seems a waste of time for now.

It definitely is premature. I just couldn't believe that people in this fan base really believed that's all we're capable of winning... They talked about progress and all this crap... 5 wins with this talent would be an utter failure. That was my whole point.

I don't really care how many games we win this season as long as it looks like we're improving.

Next season is the time to start being more results oriented.

I agree 100% with your post... but I think we can get more than 5... if we don't we had serious injuries this year.

I think you are correct. Which is exactly why Cowherd making a prediction of 5-11 is stupid, and I'm going to say he's underestimating us.

Right now, based on.... well... the fact we've not seen this team play yet... we could actually go anywhere from 4-12 to 9-7.

The only mostly concrete statement I'm willing to make is that I don't see us having a playoff team this year.

I think we are all miss understanding one another here...

some people are saying what they think, based off of last year would be progress...

others are predicting wins based off of talent on the roster... it's really two different things that we're talking about here.

Unbiased? Perhaps.

"Uninformed" is probably equally true.

Cowherd has a job based on his personality, not his knowledge.


This x1000

Mr. Scot... when you're on it, you're really on it.

I personally expect we can win 4 games, but wouldn't be surprised by 5 or 6 - too much is new for me to really know. What matters is improvement - and that I think we will see a great deal of.

3 Sep 25 JAC @ CAR W--- We pretty much own Jacksonville

4 Oct 02 CAR @ CHI W--- Jay Cutler... that is all....

8 Oct 30 MIN @ CAR W--- another toss up.... this could go either way on paper

10 Nov 13 TEN @ CAR W---- Matt will have back spasms... the rookie will be in... no threats at WR for our corners to worry about

13 Dec 04 CAR @ TB W----I think we just have too much for them on both sides of the ball

14 Dec 11 ATL @ CAR W--- we win at home we have gelled and are mad that they hurt our feelings

16 Dec 24 TB @ CAR W---- again too much for them

17 Jan 01 CAR @ NO W---- we pretty much always beat them the last game of the season. plus we'll be fighting to get in


I specifically asked for none of this. We always beat them the last game of the season is not a reason we will beat them. It's because they are resting players. Unless you think they have locked up a #1 seed, they won't be resting players.

Jay Cutler was in the NFC Champ game last year and your reason for us beating them is Jay Cutler.

We have too much for the Bucs on both sides of the ball? Kellen fuging Winslow owned us last year. We couldn't get them off the field on third downs. Our offense might be better but by all accounts their D Line got beastly. Their rookies should be much improved from last year. Freeman should make a big jump in his 3rd season as the starter.

We beat ATL because they hurt our feelings? That's a reason?

^ it's impossible to explain why this early... Or course theres more logic behind my picks... But that could turn into a damn novel per pick. It's really just dumb to sit there and do what I just did anyways because it's too early. But we all pretty much do this around the time schedules are released.

There are still way too many players that are FA's that can have an immediate impact on any team in the NFL including us... It's just a snapshot based off of the talent we have. Not an expectation that we will win those said games... Like posted earlier in this thread...

In Any Given Sunday... That's why they play the games.

I don't really know how many games this team can win.....

3 to 5- if we don't play well and are mistake and injury prone.

7 to 9- if things gel, we stay healthy and we get some breaks.


the one thing I can predict.........this team will not go into this season having "winning 3 out 4 games per quarter" as their goal.
