LOL, Another pessimism bomb.

News Flash: No game is an sure win, therefore no game is a sure loss. Not one single game on our schedule is going to be a breeze. Of your 4 stated losses, odds are we'll win one or two of them. You can never be sure.

NYJ-Loss? nope, toss up. They have more questionmarks than we do.
GB-Loss? Nope, toss up. They are a team on the decline both on offense and defense.

Oh forget it. Its like talking to a wall. I give up.

Atlanta-Michael Vick- 2 Losses
Carolina-Great defense, great coaching- 2 Losses
Tampa Bay-Great draft, great DC, offensive coach getting his players - 2 Losses
New England-HA! Loss
Buffalo-Up and coming team with great D. Loss
Miami-Nick Saben, good defense, Ronnie Brown - Loss
New York Jets-Better coach, better QB, Loss
Minn-Awesome offseason, Loss
Green Bay-Better QB, better RB, Better defense, Loss
Detroit-team on the rise, coming together-Loss
Chicago-After Miami loss, and before bye week? Loss
St Louis-Better RB, better Defense, better coach, better QB,-Loss
NY Giants-Better QB, better RB, Better Coach, Better defense,-Loss

Yup, what was I thinking?
0-16 is obvious to anyone with a brain.

you know, you asked for people's opinions and then ridicule them because they don't agree with what you are saying...

.. if no game is a sure win, and no game is a sure loss, how can you..

oh never mind... where is the ignore button here?

Here's a thought, when you see the name "Danno" don't read it.
It works the same as an ignore button if used properly.

Danno - you're doing a fantastic job in your new role as white wizard!!!

Look man, I think that this team has the talent to be 11-5, maybe better. But it also has the coaching, discipline, and find a way to lose spirit that makes me think they can be 5-11. That said, whether you take the average, go by recent history, or simply ask, is there really any way the Saints will give me something other than the worst case - you come out to 8-8.

I just can't imagine a world with the Saints winning and an owner not threatening to leave. Sometimes I try to think about the late 80s and early 90s, but that just seems like a dream now.

Here is how I think the season will go down... I think its mostly in Sheppards hands. Mike feels he is going to make a name for himself. If he does well then we are in the playoffs. If not we are going to be sitting at 6 wins at best. The improvements on D are going to be noted but its Sheppard who this is going to make or break us.

Tampa-2 wins we always play them hard
Carolina-2-I think we can sweep them this year. The whole Jake thing means another level of play.
Atlanta- we will split. We've played them close in past years.

That's 5 wins for the division.

NYG-Win-Eli still learning the hard way.
STL- win team on decline and weak offensive line. Martz will blow up.
CHI-win I forsee injuries on that team.Grossman is coming off injury and mushin is old. Bensen is new to nfl so expect a sprain.
DET- Loss This years Chargers
GB- Loss - old man goes out in style and is playing us in Lambeau
MIN- Loss-winable but Dante is a competitor
NE- Loss- you know why.
NYJ - Win-Their loss alowed us to not make the playoffs. revenge is sweet.
BUF- win-I don't know much about this team but it's a home game so advantage us.
MIA- Win - with or without ricky

So that's 11 wins if i counted correctly. i'll take a +/- 1

Compare the out-of-division schedule to last year's ...

2004 - 2005

San Diego (12-4) L - NE
Denver (10-6) L - NYJ
Seattle (9-7) L - NYG
Minnesota (8-8 ) L - MIN
St. Louis (8-8 ) W - STL
Kansas City (7-9) W - GB
Dallas (6-10) W - BUF
Arizona (6-10) L - DET
Oakland (5-11) W - CHI
San Francisco (2-14) W - MIA

Based on how well I expect our opponents to do this season, I'd say the schedule is slightly harder this year. That's why I think the divisional games are even more crucial this year. They need to win those games, ESPECIALLY in the dome.

Good call tobias. Danno wants opinions, but only the ones that will blow smoke up everyone's ass. IF you don't pick 10-6 or higher, you are a pessimist. Someone remind me what our record is the last 4 years? 32-32? Every team in the division got better, Minn got better, last I checked Green Bay still had Favre and Green, NYJ was a playoff team last year and got Coles back, who is better than Moss. Yeah they look worse. They even have a kicker who can boom it. But listen to Danno everyone, 16-0, no even better 19-0 cause we will waltz through the playoffs and the Superbowl. Don't let that smoke being blown burn your ass though.
