Not gonna lie, I could see us struggling a bit first half of the season...brutal as hell first half, plus being w/o Bowman and probably Aldon (suspension).
It looks tough on paper, but you never know how good these teams are going to be...including us.
It's a safe bet to say Seattle, Broncos, and Saints will be tough games.
Bears were horrific on D last year, especially against the run. Cutler has been potato every time he plays us.
The Chiefs faltered late last year, losing 6 of their last 8 games including playoffs. We'll see if that carries over to this year. 9-0 start was clearly a product of a ridiculously easy schedule.
Eagles need to prove they're not a flash in the pan. Chip Kelly's offense was incredibly effective last year. Let's see what happens with a full offseason to prepare for his unorthodox scheme.
Cardinals are a very solid-team. Great defense. I just have a hard time buying them as long as Palmer is QBing. His passing numbers are nice, winning % is not.
