Record Predictions

Honestly, hard to find too much fault with these predictions.  Bucs on paper are the clear favorites in the NFC South, IMO the Panthers and Saints have good rosters overall but major questions at QB and OT for the Panthers and secondary for the Saints.  I likewise see the Falcons bottom out this year.

I'm all onboard with the 10-7 prediction and hopefully a wild card.  Ultimately, it would be nice to just be in the race all season long at this point.  

2017 and especially 2015 are getting long into the rearview mirror at this point... Rhule needs to prove his meddle at the NFL level this year and at least have a team competing for the playoffs.

I don't get how people keep saying the Saint have a good roster.   Did people not see how much they lost in the offseason?

Their corners consist of Lattimore (who is really good) and a bunch of JAG.  Their LB are pretty much the same with Davis and then rookies and JAG.  At DT they will be lucky to get anything close to average from any but Omyemata.  Their OL is good but they have 1 really good reciever and nothing after that and 1 really good running back and then just a group of JAG.  We have better TE than they do and Brees kept it working because he knew the offense so well.  So unless Jameis or Hill is as good as Brees I see this team having a top 5 pick next year.

7-10. Defense is better, McCaffrey stays healthy, so more wins come. But Darnold doesn’t take the next step and the team struggles to protect the ball and move the offense consistently.

9-8 or 10-7

I think a heavy dose of CMC and a defense that gets off the field on 3rd downs (unlike last year). helps us win more of those close games. If Darnold plays really well (Oline Gels somehow) and CMC stays healthy we may do even better.

There's so many unknowns but I do believe we have a Top-5 defense and they will give us the opportunity to crank out some wins.  I also see the division a bit in flux.  

Two men that will need to be on point to make it to the post-season: Joe Brady+Sam Darnold

Sax's Prediction is that they make some noise.  Darnold could have an up and down year but with better stats than we're used to at the position.  I'm looking at Joe Brady to make this work more than anyone.

11-6; division win

They  lost some pieces and should take a step backward, but not as much as I was expecting with 111Million cleared off the books.

Omyemata will be suspended our first matchup, week 2 at home.

We have a real shot at winning that game.

9-8 is most realistic rn. More or less will depend on if we see new leaders step up with some authority and help bridge the gap in close games. We have playmakers now we need swagger. Especially at home.

I have been thinking 8 wins for a while now. Just above the line.

Yesterday I learned that Tannehill's ints% were 3.1% and 3.3% his last 2 years with Miami before he went to Ten and they dropped to 2.1%.   

Brees' int% was 3.0% his first full season.  It went to 4.2% his second season. The year before he went to the Saints offense Bees int% was 3.0%.  Then in NO  it dropped to 2.0%.

Sam's int%  was 3.0% last year, lower than Tannehills and the same as Brees before their moves. 

And the  jets coaching/scheme/oline/rbs/wrs were just sooo bad. 

I wonder if NO and Ten messagecboards were talking about the new "turnover machines" their management had just hired.

It seems likely the Sams' int% will go down given the change in scheme and situation, the question is my how much?  Will he drop to 2.0 or 2.1 like the other two? 

Every time I look into this stuff I find something else that just tells me that Darnold should ball out.  

If he does, we're a 10 win team.  If the 2020 jets can beat the Rams and Browns, the 2021 Panthers can beat the Bucs.

If old habits could be coached out so quickly and easily there would be many more Tannehill or Brees types up for grabs across the league. As much as Sam has to take the next step our receivers are also going to have to make his life easier.

I say 10-7. I think Darnald wins those 4 games Teddy Bear couldn't.

Hang on there grasshopper. IIRC, Teddy won 4 games, and PJ won 1. Add in teh 4 you say Sam can win. And Viola, 9 wins. I know math be hard. So Imma give you a pass. lol
