Time to reevaluate the end of the year record. Pessimistically maybe we win two more games, Jacksonville and Chicago at the end of the year. Optimistically we could go .500 from now on with 10 games to play. It's looking like playoffs are out of the question. I want us to be able to secure a spot in the draft to grab the best cornerback, but I don't want it to be at the expense of having a top 5 pick. Where does everyone see us record-wise?

Is 6-10 an option?

I'm gonna go 7-9. I think this is realistically a .500 team that overachieved a bit last year, and is underachieving this year.

I still have faith that the offense will turn it around, I just don't think they can be as bad as they have been playing lately.

Anywhere in between or over is an option.

Right now if I had to guess I'd say 4 wins.

I think they'll beat Jacksonville, and maybe they'll snag a game against the Vikings, Bears, or Colts/Cardinals. But, I think that's wishful thinking if they're going to be playing like they've played all year. Big things would need to happen.

5-11

Colts Cardinals & Jags are the only teams left that this team playing like they have can beat.

Maybe I'm delusional but I don't think our offense can play as inconsistent as they have the entire season. If that starts to click they could probably roll off some wins.

I agree, too much talent... Not only talent, but proven talent. Our defense has been playing well all year, our offense turns it around like it should and we'll be back on track, though there is still that pesky special teams problem.[/url]

Could go either way. Wouldn't be a bad year to get a top pick and sell it for additional picks or a vet presence. Top picks are looking like DL or QBs. We really don't need either right now. Wouldn't mind trading down for one of the DBs and getting some extra picks to play with.

I think we finish 6-10.

Add some more talent, get everybody focused on football and doing the little things it takes to win, which should happen after a disappointing year, and be ready to have another crack in 2013.

Most definitely think 4-12 at this point, with our remaining schedule.

Colts aren't unbeatable, neither are the Cards. Not confident in our chances with the Packers 2x, Bears, Falcons and Texans games.

Should be able to win AT LEAST 1 more.
