Default Re: The HERD predicts 6-2/7-1 in next 8 games

My guess on the next 8 games is 5-3

W - Washington
L - @Giants
W - Chiefs
W - Baltimore
W - @ Cleveland
L - @ Baltimore
W - San Diego
L - @ Dallas

That will be 8-6 with 2 remaining home games with the Browns and Bengals for a 10-6 record

Need the Ravens to then go 5-4 and win tiebreakers - in addition to playing the Steelers the Ravens play:

@Cleveland
Oakland
San Diego
@Washington
Denver
New York
@Cincinnati

If the Steelers do not beat Baltimore twice I still do not see the Steelers winning the division

I see us losing once at Baltimore and once at New York, and finishing 11-5. I really don't see us losing to Dallas like so many others seem to, especially not that late in the season when we always tend to collect ourselves and make a run and Dallas tends to throw everything away and choke.

I think we can sweep Baltimore and I don't see us losing to Dallas.

I know it's a stretch, but 12-4 IS possible.

by how dallas fades at the end of the season, it should be a winnable game.

sweeping baltimore I don't think so. We split with them, even with their injuries those guys hate us and will play hard. that and joe flacco always knows how to draw PI calls on ike for some reason.

and who knows what defense will show up? we go one week to stopping hernandez and gronk, then next week we get abused by dennis pitta (WHO?)

we had kind of a slow start last season and ended up 12-4, but we play some pretty good eams (giants, ravens, chargers) idk i mean its hard to tell because weve been so inconsistent, if we could just stop the big mistakes we wouuld be unstoppable

Colin has a hard on for Ben, so I can see him saying that. I have no worries when it comes to the offence. I.know Ben will find a way....but the defence scares the Hell outta me. How Ike holds up against Dez Bryant, Victor Cruz, Tory Smith twice??? I just don't know.

Can we stack two wins before talk of running the table? 4-12 is more likely if Woodley pops his hammy and Troy can't come back.

Baby steps. Let's build on Cincy and get a good home win vs. an upstart QB and team. I would have considered this a trap game last year, but not with RG3.

Thankfully, the Redskins defense is miserable.

agreed. I'm happy with the 2nd half play. But up until Dalton decided to throw one into the back of his lineman and it just happened to pop up into Woodley's hands, we were in the process of playing our worst game of the year.

Drops
Penalties
No Run D

It was ugly.

Actually, I don't want to see us run the table.
I'd like to see a loss somewhere near playoff time because that breaks whatever streak we may be on. I don't like "streaks" when entering the playoffs because to win the SB, whatever streak you're on has to continue all the way through and that's not easy.

The only exception to that would be a division title as the "Bye-week" basically takes the place of a loss so it interrupts the streak.

I agree with the "baby steps", but there's nothing wrong with long range planning assuming that the baby steps become a walk and then a run.

I'd like to see whatever it takes to get a home game and a bye. We could have used one last year to get Ben healthier.

I don't think this team is built to win three roadies in the playoffs, but maybe if fully healthy, they could muster an upset at Houston in the AFCC Game after a first round home win vs., say, the Pats or Chargers.
