Bingo. I'm not looking at this as an easy schedule at all. Until the games REALLY start, we have no idea what to expect.
Absolutely, the old adage of "any given Sunday" still holds true. To me is very simple, the moment you underestimate your oponent is the moment you will fall. Take last season for example, remember how high everyone were when we beat the Packers in the first game ? Well, over-confidence started to set in for me momentarily and I thought if we could beat the Packers we could easily beat the Vikings. Boom, how wrong was I ?! Also, I made what I thought to be a conservative season prediction of 12 and 4 and we couldn't even get there. This season, it is even going to be tougher in my book. If I am being optimistic, I am looking at 11 and 5.
