@SEA---OL has to be somewhat coherent after TC and 4 preseason games. We need 'em to win game 1 . They come thru and we upset SEA W
SAINTS---need to play N.O. close. They have best coach in the league, we have inexperienced one. If we keep our composure, play them even, and lose, we make a statement in losing. We actually win, even in a loss, if we look like we belong in game. If we get rammycackled, that is a bad omen for rest of season. We can gain a lot of momentum for season by looking like we belong in game. L
Chiefs---if we lose to Chiefs, it's gonna be a long, long yr W
@ ATL ---don't feel good about this one, again with better HC and QB, and GM. Would have felt better if we played them at home. Again, keep it close, and we don't lose momentum. L
Eagles---we're home. They are missing McNabb and westbrook, who carried them last several yrs. Problem is their HC is a lot better than ours. More experience, knows the O. Still, i think our OL is starting to gel and alex is giving us hints of some great things to come. We eke out a W, barely
Raids---you gotta be kidding me. We lose this one, we are in for new HC, QB, Rb, Center, and well, you know, a rebuild. We win big W
@Panthers---this is a sneak up on you game with a very good coach vs MS. Their qB is also established and in top 6-8 in league. Again, important to keep our poise, even in L.
Rams---here? not much to say W
TB---it's here, they are bad, W
@CArds---we don't beat them at home, as leinart is starting to look like a QB, not a guy lost out in the desert. L
@Packers---ouch, two games in a row where we lose because of homefield advantage. Their QB farther along than ours. Only game changer can be if we just run their D off the field with a vastly improved OL ...still L.
SEA---here? we beat them again. I think we would have split if we played them at home here instead of game 1. We're a better team. W
@ Chargers---great GM, great owner, mediocre coach who screwed us. WE got a lot of incentive to rub nervous norvous's nose in it. Even without LT, who was getting tired last yr, they have better qB, great OL. We could suprise IF OL plays out of their skull. L
@RAms---Suh has monster day, plays valiantly, is definite ROY based on this game. It'll be closer than anyone thinks, but we W
Cards---lost there, W here.
That's 9-7, and i posted 10-6...which means we have to steal one more. It could be the Cards in the desert, or we could surprise ATL there, or again surprise panthers in carolina. Any of the three would be a surprise, but all are doable, but i would jump for joy with just one more win to get us to 10-6. A very bad omen would be to open up 0-5. It ain't gonna happen.
