I'll start this off by saying I went to the Browns forum and they have a mock where the pick they get from us is 3rd overall and their pick is 12th overall. Laughing Laughing

I know we aren't a good team, but we are better than Cleveland. Their defense is going to be really bad.

I could see 10 to 17 depending on injuries

Has a team ever gone into the draft with the 1st and 2nd overall picks?

I'm not a huge fan our offense but the D is legit. No team in the NFC East is clearly better than the other so let's say everyone splits

Week 1 vs Browns - Browns gonna Brown, that's a win
Week 2 @ Chicago - Jay Cutler... and garbage O/D lines, that's a win
Week 3 vs Pit - No Leveon and their defense blows, that's a coin-toss
Week 5 @ Detroit - Coming off a bye against a scrub team, that's a win
Week 7 vs Vikes - At home but that's a coin-toss
Week 10 vs Falcons - At home and who knows which ATL team shows up, coin-toss
Week 11 @ Seattle - That's a loss
Week 12 vs GB - If Jordy's healthy, that's a loss
Week 13 @ Cincy - That's a loss
Week 15 @ Ravens - Coin-toss

Philly doesn't have to step on a plane the last 4 weeks of the season. And obviously that's when Wentz putz da team on hiz back doe and taykez us to da ship...

But seriously, I think 7-9 is the absolute worst we'll do. I'm one of the few here that wouldn't be surprised to see us win the division. I'm not betting a large chunk of cash on it, but I wouldn't be shocked.

well if we end up finishing with the second worst record that just means we get a second round pick earlier.

Yea. I don't get people who retroactively want to save face on the 1st rounder we traded.

It's sunk cost at this point. I don't want to win a bunch of meaningless games and miss out on a corner, hb, or one of the many other positions just so we don't look bad when the browns have two top 10 picks.

I want to think we wont be that bad...but certainly haven't seen enough from the offense to be super positive to start the season...it could happen for sure.

Steelers' RB LeVeon Bell is having his suspension reduced from 4 to 3 games, sources told ESPN.

Will still miss week 3 against us. D'Angelo Williams looked good filling in for him last year though, so we probably still lose this game as Antonio Brown is going to eat McKelvin alive.

Floor of 4 wins, ceiling of 8. I'll go with 7-9. You're looking at about 3 damn near auto-Ls to close out the year (@Seattle, Packers, @Cincy).

4 wins sounds right.

I like Robby Anderson as a WR to bring in if the Jets don't keep him.

I honestly don't see us winning just 4 because of how this defense has performed and how I believe it -can- perform.
