    Reminds me of 2008

    That team started off 0-2 and 2-3, but showed some signs early on they were better than what everyone thought. Had a very easy schedule that they took advantage of and ended up winning the division. And they actually had a competent qb. And that was sparanos 1st year right? This is philbins 1st year, despite a 1-3 record we've seen many signs we're better than what everyone thought, we got a very soft schedule coming up, and we got a competent qb. That's why this is a huge game, 2-3 with the schedule we got we should be in the thick of the playoff hunt in nov/dec. 1-4 is tough to bounce back from without a long winning streak.

    This team does not have an easy schedule. Right now our SOS is tied for 5th strongest in the NFL and that's with everyone in our division at .500 and the real reason we surprised everyone that year was because of the wildcat...a gimmick play that no longer works. What Philbin is doing is laying the foundation for good, solid football...no trick plays needed.

    You can tell yuourself that but a .540 winning percentage of our opponents this year tells me something else. Take out the .500 winning percentage of our division and it's a .549 winning percentage of our opponents. This is not an easy schedule.

    ya but thats also bc teams like the rams, seahawks, jets and bills are 2-2. that accounts for 5 of the games coming up.

    the seahawks, rams, and jets are not as good as there record, meaning these are really below 500 caliber teams,

    we shall see, but from watching our front 7 dominate vs the run and get pressure on qbs, and tanne and the wrs playing a lot better than expected, i have hope for a change.

    You are what your record says you are and to say those teams are below .500 even though they're not would be wrong. Seattle's defense is very, very good and if you want to play the "their not as good as their record" card we can say the Patriots (which we still have to play twice) and Titans are better than their record says they are. Titans were 9-7 last year.

    Our strength of schedule is 20th; next 7 games: Cincy, St Louis Bye Week Jets Titans Bills Seahawks ...is that not an easy run?

    I agree mostly. Except Pennington was better than Tanny is right now. But Tanny is smart, and with his work ethic he may turn into a Pennington type player with great arm strength, aka a superstar. But yeah I can see this team coming back around from here on out and finishing 9-7, if we can end at 9-7 and beat the pats twice, we could win the division. Y now? Jets are in serious trouble right now, Bills dont seem that great to me. Pats seem a bit off, with a weak D. If we can play like we did against Arizona and cut back on some to's we could be a pretty good team this year.
