Cincy...? That schedule really is lacking an elite opponent.

For most team those are all very "winnable" games. Obviously you guys are still a little below par, but 8-8 with overall quality of opponents very in the realm of possibilities with Teddy/whoever you want to input at QB that won't turn it into a draft debate.

It's always a draft debate 'round these parts. Laughing


But honestly, i'd say Indy is the closest to an "elite opponent" on that schedule as it looks now. And they're a team that we're guaranteed to play a couple times a year anyway. Maybe Cincy, they're solid, but at least a tier below the truly scary teams. The Browns could be the best if they get the right QB, but that's a big IF.

I mean, we'll still lose a lot of these games, probably even most of them. But i can see a lot of games that we're at least hanging in there and making a day of it. There are a lot of teams who could run that table undefeated.

If we had a normal schedule this year and progressed on schedule, and this was our 2016 schedule, I'd expect us to get a wild card.

Looks like we have a few months of trash talk before the week 1 opener.

By the same token none of those teams are gimme wins, especially for us. It may look like a weak schedule to a team that has talent and has won recently, but all of those teams still have more talent than us, and it would be foolish to just assume they will be at the same level they were last year when there's a good chance every single team on that schedule besides two or three will be better than they were last year, at least on paper.

...ok?

When did anyone say any of those were "gimme wins", and none of those teams would improve? All we're saying is it's a relatively weak schedule compared to most teams schedule, which it is. Just because they have more talent than us doesn't mean it can't be a weak schedule, atm we are bottom 3 in talent in the NFL.

I didn't say anyone said it, but saying they're all winnable and not mentioning the fact that none of them are pushovers either is doing those teams a disservice. It's not an easy schedule, especially for us. I think nearly all of those teams will be good this season.

I still fail to understand how this all means that our schedule isn't weak. You thinking all these teams turn it around is just your opinion, when people look at schedule at this time of the year the only thing you can go off of is last year, and right now, our schedule is very much weak. Our best team we play is the Colts, and the 2nd best team is likely Cincy. It is not a tough schedule in any sense, just because we are bad doesn't mean it's still not a relatively weak schedule.

Yeah, it makes sense to look at the schedule like the teams on it will be the same as they were last year and don't take into account free agency, being in the system another year, the history of the team itself, their draft positioning, etc. Yeah going by last year it would be a weak schedule, but this isn't' last year and all of those teams who were "weak" last year on that schedule stand to be better, and I would say by a lot.

It's not just judging by last year. Looking at those teams and a reasonable margin of expected improvement...there still aren't any truly terrifying teams there. And there are a lot of games that could be competitive for us if WE improve and are better than the team we had last year (which is also reasonable).

There are always surprises, but looking at it right now...it's a weak schedule. Sure, a team like the Giants could bounce back as they're known to do and be a nightmare for us. Or the Bengals could completely collapse under the weight of Any Dalton's gingerness. Lots of things could happen. But based on a set of fairly reasonable projections based on teams on an upswing/downswing, what they might reasonably add in the draft and what they've added in FA...it's a weak schedule.
