    Last year you based that prediction on Ponder & Gerhart carrying the team while AD would be on the sidelines most of the first half of the season & being gingerly used in those games.

    Many of us felt AD would be out the first 4 games or so & based our predictions on that thought & that he wouldn't be 100% until about mid season or later.

    I'm in a good discussion a FB with a guy who says our fan base doesn't have bad feelings or isn't pessimistic.

    I hear ya though but really, things didn't just come together last year. We had to rely on all phases of the game to win at some point or another and yes, even our QB pulled us through a few times.

    In the end, you could be right, but I'm still going with 12-4. Maybe even 13-3 if I switch the steelers game.

    I did say that Ponder and Toby would have a greater role with Toby being the only let down, but that was because AD was a surprise.

    But don't forget, I made my prediction based mostly on what I thought was going to happen with the other teams in the division. Lest you forget.

    I think all of that, coupled with the team issues I listed in the analysis, 2 more wins isn't really that bold. What games do you think I missed on?
    My differences to drop to 9-7 are splitting with Bears & Packers (home team wins all games) and losing at the NY Giants.

    We're an 8-8 team this year... hopefully.

    Quick reminder, we could have drafted Russell Wilson 2 or 3 times. Just putting that out there.

    Schedule Breakdown (Wins - Losses)

    Wilson had a good rookie year. I am going to hold out until I see that the norm and not an anomaly but yeah, he might be a gem. He was no sure thing or he would have been gone earlier.

    I'm going to say 8-8, maybe 9-7. Wanted to go 10-6 or 11-5 but after looking more closely at the schedule I just don't see it happening. Anything is possible though and that's what makes watching the games so exciting.

    We certainly have the potential and pieces to make a good run. Hopefully our rookies can contribute in a big way.
