Default How will we do in 2010

Well the draft is over and it's time for all prognosticators to take their best guess at what our record will be this coming season. I have long since been a believer in the old axiom that "Defense Wins Championships". Our Defense is looking pretty good at this point. I know it's early but I think this will be a good year for our D.

I'll get us started . . .

9/12: vs. Atlanta, 1 p.m. - WIN (With Ben out this game will be closer than it should be. Many people are jumping on the Falcons bandwagon - But, I'm not buying it. Our defense will stuff the run.)

9/19: @ Tennessee, 1 p.m. - Loss (The Titans are tough at home)

9/26: @ Tampa Bay, 1 p.m. - WIN (Tampa is in big trouble this week)

10/3: Baltimore, 1 p.m. - WIN (A Three to nothing win is still a win)

10/10: BYE WEEK

10/17: Cleveland, 1 p.m. - WIN (Ben Returns!)

10/24: @ Miami, 1 p.m. - WIN (This game will be closer than many people may think . . .)

10/31: @ New Orleans, 8:20 p.m. - WIN - (New Orleans is gonna take a beating all year . . . Everybody wants to take down the champ - AND it's Primetime)

11/8: @ Cincinnati, 8:30 p.m. - LOSS - (Not positive why . . . Emotional let down after last week? - Just have a bad feeling about this one)

11/14: New England, 8:20 p.m. - WIN - (Home game and we still owe them some revenge - Brady hurts his vagina in this one)

11/21: Oakland, 1 p.m. - WIN - (Another home revenge game for last year)

11/29: @ Buffalo, 1 p.m. - WIn - (We win this one by running the ball straight down their throat)

12/5: @ Baltimore, 8:20 p.m. - LOSS - (The Ratbirds eek one out at home)

12/12: Cincinnati, 1 p.m. - WIN - (We won't lose twice to the Bungles)

12/19: N.Y. Jets, 4:15 p.m. - WIN - (We play up to the competition and it's at home . . .)

12/23: Carolina, 8:20 p.m. - WIN - (This will be a long day for the panthers . . . Once they realize they can't run on us - Panic sets in and we win easily)

1/2: @ Cleveland, 1 p.m. - LOSS - (We get their only "A" game of the year - while we rest starters . . .)

Final Regular season record - 12 - 4


And YES I believe we are going to the Superbowl once again!



So how do you see this year turning out?

I'm thinking we will be 11 and 5. We will likely lose to either the Saints OR Patriots. Some of te other games can go different ways as well.

I think a Superbowl run is possible.

I'm not 100% convinced on our defense yet. Troy says he's still not fully back yet (after all these months?) I hope the next 3 months do the charm. I hope BMac is in top form. I hope we have solid play at the number 3 CB position.
Could this be a break out year for Timmons? I hope so.

I hope our O-line can create holes for the run.

I hope Sanders beats Randel El so we have some speed at #3.

If Dixon isn't ready, it's our fault. Batch is not very good but instead of developing Dixon, we've had him as number 3, playing the Scout QB and other meaningless things. He could have been getting solid work the last 2 years as #2...(at least last year).

hate to say this but, we seem to be putting a lot of faith in a bunch of old boys club members(BMac/El/foote), we're putting a lot of faith in Troy remaining healthy.

We will have an average qb for at least four games and we've got serious depth issues at all key offensive positions.

Cincy, Dirtybirds and even the Browns are on the up, we're treading water at best.

I'm all for positivity mind you, . . . . and if we manage 10-6 i'll be very happy.

Best receiver gone. To the toughest AFC competition too.

Ben......a freakin tard. Distracted, suspended. Big ????? there.

Commit to the run...still lookin for the big back....still need an O-line

Troy.........fragile. Best player.....unreliable.

8-8 would make sense with this recipe. Its a rebuilding year. Hope not. Looks like it.

Eh Ben will be pissed when he gets back. I think he takes it out on the rest of the league.

He's ready, Steelers fans. His ordeal over, his return will be complete come Saturday in Arizona, when football again becomes the focus and a career briefly interrupted resumes.

5-11, did not fill their biggest holes yet too many stupid decisions which goes along with that bad draft they had, once Aaron Smith goes on IR again opposing running games will have a field day, Dennis Dixon helps ruin season

The Jets game may be a loss and not because of Sandoobio but because it's a 4:15 game.
