Two weeks down, predict what record your team will finish with.
Now that we've actually seen the starters for two games now, how do you think your team is doing and where do you think it will finish?

Niners could finish either 9-7 or 10-6 and will be competing with the Cardinals all season for first in the West.

Ravens will finish no worse than 12-4, could even finish 13-3, now that they have an offense to compliment their defense. Ravens will go to the AFC championship again.

2. WillPitt is predicting just the opposite of that.

3. I thought the 49ers might finish 8-8,
but so much depends on injuries, luck, etc. I could see 9-7 too.

4. J - E - T - S
J - E - T - S

Jets!
Jets!
Jets!
(I'm too lazy to do the font color and size changes this time)

Will finish the regular season 12 - 4. And they'll lose to the Ravens in the AFC Championship Game.
Why? Because they're the Goddamn Jets.

Those four losses will be one game to the Bills, one to the Colts, one to the Phins, and one to the Patriots.

7. That's about what I think.
9-7 isn't out though. They outplayed Indy until the last three minutes, and from the chunks that I've seen in the first two games they're playing pretty solid, and they're playing with some intensity. They look better than the Pats have, that's for sure.

13. Thier secondary is simply awful...
Their defensive line is just fine but the secondary gave up monster yards. They need to fix it quick.

I thought the offense, except for the last 3 minutes--- played outstanding...ball control--long drives, etc. The Wildcat worked very well last night.

Like I said---if they don't fix the secondary---it will be a long and painful year.

9. When I was looking at the 49er schedule before the season started
I was thinking 9 wins was a good possibility, and that was counting the opener in Arizona as a loss. So I think 9, 10 maybe even 11 wins is feasible....we might see them back in the playoffs this year.

10. Bears 10-6
Before Sunday i would have said 9-7, because i thought the Stillers was a loss.

Of course, the week before i would have said 10 - 6 because i thought they'd be the Packers.

So, what do i know?

12. Giants
I predicted 12-4 and I'll stick with that. Though I might have underestimated my team.

16. Broncos: 2-14
:rofl:

Just kidding. But I am (pleasantly) surprised (perhaps even shocked!) that they've started 2-0. I think they could go 9-7, which might be enough to win a still very mediocre AFC West.

18. Steelers also will be either 13-3 or 12-4
depending upon if they beat the Ravens in Baltimore.

Super Bowl again.

21. Brees may be the best QB playing right now.
They showed a stat last week that over the last 16 games his numbers were better than Marino's record breaking year in the same amount of games.

I'll be amazed if they don't make the playoffs.

22. Saints fans are rather superstitious
we take into account the Voodoo graveyard that the Superdome sits on. Yeah, Brees has been awesome for quite awhile and he throws the ball around to several receivers keeping lots of folks happy. I hope Shockey stays healthy, they have a short passing and a long passing game and the running game is perking up. And the defense is way better then last year.

23. Packers: 10-6
But only if their offensive line starts showing up.
