He has struggled this preseason and when the regular season starts, teams that get pressure on him will have success against him. He is skittish under rush.

    Where does anyone see Buffalo winning 6 games, that would be the greatest coaching job ever......

    Miami - L
    @GB - L
    @NE - L
    NYJ - L
    JAC - L
    @BALT - L
    @KC - POTENTIAL WIN
    CHIC - POTENTIAL WIN
    DET - POTENTIAL WIN
    @CINCI - L
    PITTS - L
    @MINN - L
    CLEVE - POTENTIAL WIN
    @MIAMI - L
    NE - L
    @NYJ - L

    Four potential wins and maybe 1 divisional game, which means 3 wins or less. But I really think they will be looking at a 0 wins going into the Cleveland game and will need to hope Miami, NE or the Jets have a playoff spot wrapped up and sit everyone!

    i remember last year there were a lot of espn predictions that had us going 7-9 and 8-8. this board for the majority thought they were nuts. we did have injuries but thats part of football. 9-7 is optimistic this year, afc is tough. im one of those that thought they were nuts, i like 10-6 or 11-5 this year. where can i pre-order my division champs shirt?

    Based on the relative youth of the team and what I have seen in the first three pre season games, I think a 9-7 record (with a possible wild card spot) would be a successful year.

    As for the Bills, it's hard to call them. None of us expected to lose to them last year and we did. I could see them go anywhere from 5-11 to 8-8. They have not looked horrific in the pre season and Spiller looks like a game breaker.

    no team led by sanchez will ever win 10 games, and that coupled with there best player revis holding out, theyll be lucky to get 8 wins.

    ---------- Post added at 11:01 PM ---------- Previous post was at 11:01 PM ----------

    miami will go 12-4, new england 10-6, bills 7-9, jets 7-9[ lose tiebreaker to bills]
    As a rookie w/ him starting we won 9 games, I can see why 10 would be impossible as he gets better

    Miami 12-4?

    For my entrie life there have been maybe 2-3 years where the Jets have gotten positive press. to act like there is some sort of bias in our favor is as laughable as it gets.

    I like the predicitions of the Monday Nigth guys, they said over 10 wins for the Jets, around 10 for NE and around 9 for Miami but the reality is we can finish in any order. The top 3 are pretty close and we all have excellent shots to win this.

    Each year is very different, you could win 7 and be much better than last year as it appears the sched will be tougher(though that changes quickly). We could be much better and go 9-7 again, we could be worse and go 10-6? We have no idea how this plays out, 9-7 one year may not be the same as 9-7 in another year.

    I'd take it more to heart if this prediction was made by a legitimate sports organization, especially one not having an agenda or prone to over-slurping the flavor of the day.

    Sanchez has been fine this preseason. he was excellent against the Giants, bad against the Panthers and mediocre against the skins.

    henne was bad in weeks 1 and 3 and great in week 2, it all kind of balances out.

    Most importantly for both guys is they are healthy, you cannot take too much out of preseason stats. If we did then Chad P would be your starting QB and kellen Clemens would be ours.

    5 wins for this Bills is a laughable prediction. They really expect them to be that good?

    9 wins for the Dolphins seems like a pretty realistic prediction.

    Wow who knew Espn picked the same exact record for us and Bills from last year...

    Thats what ESPN does..They never go out a limb..

    They pick the same 12 playoff teams and they pretty much pick the same divison winners..

    NFL is like the NCAA tourney in terms of playoff teams.. Their are always surprise teams..

    and their is a %50 Turnover of play off teams from the year before..

    So out of the 12 that made it last year 6 will not make it this year..

    ESPN is afriad of picking the wrong teams..Way to do your homework ESPN..

    What a joke

    The ESPN picks are made of of 10-12 of their "experts" who each give you their picks and I don't see anywhere on espn.com where those picks have been posted yet. The only picks I have seen is the MNF crew going division by division w/ Gruden and Jaworski giving an over/under pick.
