Schedule not as tough as it appears to be I think...game by game analysis...
game 1. -- The Texans may be one of our toughest challenges. their d-line is scary, and our o-line is a big ?????....... but their secondary scares no one (especially with Dunta Robinson out). Their o-line is vastly improved, but still only slightly better than ours statistically....... pressure matt schaub and andre johnson will not be a factor. I'm also not impressed with the texans' rb's
game 2. --- Alot of preoccupation with the changes the browns made in the offseason, but aside from signing dante stallworth, i'm not impressed...... shawn rogers has the potential to be the most dominating dt in the game, but is lazy, unmotivated and out of shape. I don't see that changing all of a sudden.......
game 3. -- The Eagles are in a state of confusion. most have them contending on reputation alone. make no mistake............. the Eagles will not be in the playoffs this season.
game 4. -- The Ravens are always a tough matchup no matter the state of either of our teams, but the prospect of facing Kyle Boller doesn't keep me up at night (especially without ogden watching his backside anymore)
game 5. -- We should've beaten the Jags in both of our matches last season, and i'm sure the team knows that also.......... we will be playing with a serious chip on our shoulders in this one.
game 6. -- Bengals............ 'nuff said!!!!!!!
game 7. -- I'm sure Plax will be highly motivated coming back to steeltown, and the giants front lines on both sides are quite strong, but i'm not sold on eli yet....... in any case, this could be a season defining game.
game 8. -- The Redskins scare no one because they can't finish....... it will be hard fought, but we will pull this one out.
game 9. -- The Colts will once again be tough, but i'm still not sold on their run stuffers.... not to mention that Peyton Manning has only had one good game against us in his career.
game 10. -- The Chargers are almost a mirror image of us and this game should go down to the wire.
game 11. -- see game 6
game 12. -- I'm hoping for Randy Moss and wes welker to be injured by the time this game rolls around....... if they aren't, then i'll put my hopes on their suddenly weak secondary.
game 13. -- The Cowboys may very well be the team to beat this yr. as on paper they look solid at every area......... we will have to play completely mistake free ball to win this one.
game 14. -- see game 4
game 15. -- The Titans are young and strong, which also translates into extremely inexperienced and immature......... they simply aren't ready to take the next step.
game 16. -- see game 2
All said, I believe we will win our division with at least an 11-5 record, and possibly better despite our shortcomings.........
