I was thinking the same but for different reasons. 1 game improvement with how bad the D was. If the d is better than last year that has to be worth at least two wins. I am thinking 9-7, if the offense plays the way they did the last few weeks last season I could see 10-6, maybe

Re: Triplett Says...

The D should be significantly improved; Anthony & Kikaha have a year experience and are switching positions(should be able to play quicker). Lewis, Williams, and Swann are coming back. Browner is gone, addition by subtraction.

We have gained a pretty decent MLB in Laurinaitis and Robertson is probably already our best coverage LB...

Not too mention, we still have the draft to go...

10-6
And make it another two game swing towards the W column with the parting of Browner.

So, 12-4..?

Lots of luck involved too. Carolina went from 7 wins to 15 wins with almost the same exact team and coaches.

Problem is we have the 4th hardest sch. I also see a 9-7 or 10-6 but I could also vision a 6-10 season. With this team there is no telling

Difficulty of schedule is generally fictitious. It is a measurement simply based upon the previous year's win/loss record of the current season's opponents. It really has very little correlation to the actual quality of those opponents in the current year.

Not to mention that the 15-1 Panthers (who we play twice) kinda skew that stat.

The schedule was easier. Norman was the difference. We should know because that's what lost us the game week 3.

Re: Triplett Says...

Games that no one is picking us to win

Oakland
@NYG(but Beckham is probably gonna show up again)
@SD(it's actually 50-50)
Carolina
@Kansas City
Seattle
@San Francisco(also 50-50)
Denver(and this team is the one that's going to stun many)
@TB
@Arizona

I believe we beat Oakland, Atlanta, Carolina once, LA, Detroit, and TB once(we got screwed with the twice in three weeks). That's six wins, and then there's the "tough" home games against Seattle, Denver on top of the road game in San Diego, SF, and KC. Those are the five other games we need to win. I don't think we beat NYG, KC, Arizona(it's too late in season), Carolina twice, Atlanta twice, TB twice.

If we were to get off to our typical 1-3, then 4-4 then 4-6 starts. Here's who we have after that? LA at home, Detroit at home. That should get us right back to .500. Then it comes down to which TB game we win. If we lose in TB we got back to 6-8 and then have the last two games which really Atlanta will not matter as the best we could do is 8-8.

And the bears schedule is so easy starting out, they are probably going 10-6 or better.
