We'll be 4 point or more underdogs at GB and Atl, and all of the sudden our 3rd place games are tough: at Rams and vs Redskins; at Buffalo won't be easy either.

The only potential 'breather' is vs the Jets. Any given Sunday. This is a tough road.

Re: Remaining Schedule

No one saw the teams playing well that are left on our schedule for remainder of the season outside of several strong teams that are always a difficult opponent.

This team is young and has good coaching that will put a competitive product on the field I believe. The key will be to win the close games that we lost last year and build some momentum going forward.

We should also get a couple of injured players back and this team should be healthy after a weeks rest.

Another week five bye. Hmmmm........I guess it's good now but a few weeks later might be nice for a change.

Take a page out of Bill Bellicheck ..."all I'm focusing on is Detroit".

One game at a time.

Were it this simple?
Neither Head Coach or General Manager would be a position in the NFL.
