Season prediction as of 9-01-03
 
We had a prediction at the start of preseason and I was very optimistic about the saints then. Even placed a bet in Vegas for saints winning the NFC. Do I feel stupid now.

My first prediction was 11-5 or 12-4 then. that aint going to happen.

9/7 @Seattle 3:15p leaning to Loss
9/14 Houston 12:00p Win
9/21 @Tennessee 12:00p LOss
9/28 Indianapolis 7:30p Loss
10/5 @Carolina 12:00p Loss
10/12 Chicago 12:00p Win
10/19 @Atlanta 12:00p Loss
10/26 Carolina 12:00p tough one but win
11/02 @Tampa Bay 12:00p win
11/9 BYE WEEK --
11/16 Atlanta 12:00p win
11/23 @Philadelphia 12:00p loss
11/30 @Wash. 3.00p win
12/07 Tampa Bay 12:00p loss
12/14 NY Giants 7:30 loss
12/21 @Jacksonville 12:00p win
12/28 Dallas 12:00p loss I hate picking this one like this but I thinkdallas will be playing for more pride.

I come up with 7-9 or 8-8 and I felt I was being generous on some of the games.

Where are the rest of you?

edit/add 9-2-03 9:30am
11 games against playoff caliber teams, 2 teams trying to make a move this year, and 3 teams rebuilding.

I know that we aren\'t going to go 16-0, but I can honestly say that I think we are capiable of beating any team on our schedule. I\'m not ready to concede to any one individual loss on our schedule. With that being said I will go with 12-4 or 11-5.

Boy do I hope I\'m wrong, but outside of the Houston and Jacksonville game it\'s hard to find a win. But I\'ll pick 5-11.

jm -- Huston and Jacksonville could beat us too. We might end up with a perfect record. 0-16.

Billy, I think you\'re far too optimistic. With the way our D is shaping up right now, we will have to have one of the most prolific offenses in the history of the game to go 12-4. I say 8-8.

Yeah, maybe, but that\'s only two or three more than we won last year.

We went 9-7 last year with a worse defense (don\'t even try, dat), no TE\'s, a rookie WR and DE, a suspended Dale Carter, a one armed CB, a rookie and project on the other side, an out-of-position LB, a rookie LG, and a moron at left tackle.
So how do we drop to 8-8?

IF Deuce gets hurt, IF Brooks re-gresses, IF our D can\'t gel. IF McCarthy stays predictable, IF Venturi arrives at the stadium, etc. etc.

8-8 IF\'s...
Nobody wanted to hear the 12-4 IF\'s either.

I look at it the same way I looked at it last year (I predicted 9-7).
I look at...
Games we should win - 8, (Hou, Ind, Chi, Car, ATL, @ Was, @ Jax, Dal)
Games we should lose - 4 (@TB, @ Phi, @ Tenn, @ATL)
Toss-ups - 4 (@ Sea, @ Car, TB, NY Giants)

Every team wins a few they should have lost, but lose a few they should have won and usually split the toss-ups.

I come up with 10-6.
