I just read a article Scott Fowler posted. He predicted 10-6. Last year he predicted 8-8 and in 2011 he predicted 6-10. Im going with Fowler since he seems to be spot on. 10-6

depends on the d-line and o-line.  if they both hold up I predict a 10+ season. If either or both fail we could just as easily lose 10.  I'll take the over on 8-8 if I have to choose.  I have a lot of faith in Star/Kuechly. And Davis/Beason arent any slouches either. Put together with CJ and the Kraken, we have some promise. Weakness is still the DB's but they look to have improved.

 

So since I think the DB's are the only piece that could cost us a game even if all our other strengths are shooting at peak capacity here is my breakdown of the QB's we will face this season.

 

QB's this season

Russel Wilson (good but not great passer)         ?  

     

EJ Manuel (Rookie, nuff said)                   W

 

Eli Manning (first real QB test but hopefully some sweet sweet vengeance)                              ?      

     

Carson Palmer (past his prime but was never great to begin with)                    W

 

Christian Ponder (should be an easy matchup QB-wise)                             ?

 

Sam Bradford (overhyped gamemanager with a good coach.  First game I am really concerned with)            ?   

       

Josh Freeman (coin flip on QB performance.  Could be a cake walk or VJ may light us up without good safety play)      ?

 

Matt Ryan (gonna be a good game could go either way)                  ?

 

Colin Kaepernick (gonna be interesting to see what we can do against the read option. probably gonna be a tough game)             ?

 

Tom Brady (folds under pressure, and we bring pressure.)               W

 

Ryan Tannehill (expect some deep ball TD's to wallace. we should still come away with the win though)         W

 

Josh Freeman (no way we lose to these guys twice so ill just give us the win on this)                               W

 

Drew Brees (these A-holes are gonna score. nothing more to be said except, fug the Taints)          ?

 

Smith/Sanchez(hahahahahahah)                                        W

 

Drew  Brees (same as last time. I think we take them at home)                        W

 

Matt Ryan (one of us will be resting some starters this game....)                        W

9-7 I'm optimistic about the offensive line but I think that soft zone will frustrate us fans at times when our line is not able to get consistent pressure.

I believe our run defensive problems will be a problem of the past. Star and Cole wil hold up. on offense I think Smitty will be moving to the slot starting either Sunday or against Buffalo.

3-3 in division
2-2 against NFCW
3-1 against AFCE
1-1 against NFCN/NFCE opponents

9-7 overall. No playoffs. This is a one game improvement over my previous prediction.

So much so that he was willing to rationalize the trade of Kony Ealy to the Patriots, which essentially netted him a second-round pick eight slots higher than the third-round pick they included in the swap. "It's a heavy draft and it was an opportunity for us to move up. To you guys, eight spots doesn't seem like much. But to me, it's gold," Gettleman said, via the Charlotte Observer.   Scout's Notebook: Cam must evolve as QB   Free Agency's biggest unanswered storylines   Harrison: All-Under-25 Team   Brandt: Best second-round picks since '12   MJD: Ranking the '17 RB prospects   Players who won free agency   Brooks: Peterson 'just another' RB now   Schein: Each division's favorite, top contender   Rosenthal Why is everyone ignoring Big Ben?   Scouting Report/team fits: Malik Hooker He added: "You've got to give up something to get something. You're not fooling anybody anymore. There's too much film available. We just wanted to move up and get another second-round pick. I think it gives us more flexibility." This was, on the front end, a nice way for Gettleman to distance himself from Ealy without criticizing the dynamic former second-round pick, though it does put the fearless general manager in a precarious position. Rationalizing a trade to move up eight slots suggests there is someone in particular who you are targeting and expect to be there. At the least, it suggests that one of a few people you hope are there can contribute right away significantly. Ealy was not a perfect player, but his ability to get to the quarterback was undeniable. If the Panthers had won Super Bowl 50, there's a chance Ealy would have been named MVP despite playing just a handful of snaps. Carolina already got rid of one exceptional homegrown defensive talent in Josh Norman last year and could see Ealy come back to bite them inside the Patriots' versatile front. Of course, Gettleman isn't afraid of what anyone thinks and has done a nice job getting the Panthers under control since taking over the gig in 2013. He has plenty of equity built up with the Panthers' fan base, but a home run with that second-round pick couldn't hurt. "
