You got it backwards, second half is tougher. Well IMO anyway.
i guess i meant after the bye, not second half. but even in the second half we play 5 of our 6 division games. we could conceivably go 5-3 in those final 8 games (assuming losses to Giants, Ravens, and Steelers). If we can be, say, 2-4 at the bye, go 5-3 in the last 8, then the toss up games become vs Browns and @ Redskins. its possible that we could win 6 or 7 of our final 10 games.
It's really about how we do in the first 6 games, with 3 road trips, two home games against "playoff contenders" and one division game. Like I said, if we stay afloat there we have a better than decent shot. Just MO.
