Default Re: We better NOT start slow

Honestly, the Patriots game is the only game this year I have an easy time seeing us losing...our schedule is ridiculously easy, especially facing the Colts either without or with a banged up Peyton Manning, the Texans early on when they often don't have things together yet (not to mention they just made ground breaking changes to their entire defense which was iffy to begin with)...we should get 4 wins against the NFCW, 5 wins in the AFCN if not 6 (I think 6 given Baltimore's head case with us), wins against the Chiefs, Titans, and Jaguars...the only *losable* games I see are the Pats, the Ravens games, and the Colts game if Peyton's back....I don't REALLY think we'll go 16-0 but quite honestly with our schedule I'd consider anything less than 13 wins to be, well not a "failure" but really not playing to our abilities at all.

Haha, counting on them NOT starting out slow -- because I bet one of my idiot coworkers (Eagles fan) that the Steelers would have better record this year than the "Dream Team." :)

the ravens have done nothing but upgrade. oher back to RT where hes a top 2 or 3 rt in the league. mckinney at lt is an upgrade. they drafted a potential shutdown corner that has looked the part during the preseason. they get sergio kindle back. flacco is in his 4th year.

meanwhile the steelers havent upgraded anywhere and still have a horrible oline.

honestly, the steelers will be lucky to come to baltimore week 1 and win.

you realize you're not leaving yourself any excuses for when you lose, right?
