    if we go 3-2 i will feel pretty good about or teams chances this season.

    if we go 4-1 or 5-0, there will be some series superbowl talk on finheaven come the bye week, which would deff be entertaining.

    It's too early for me to make predictions. I think our team is better on paper than last year, but we have a very tough early schedule. We have to beat CLEVELAND, and I think do no worse than 2-3, if we are going to be playoff contenders.

    Pats have a tough schedule as well and they also play Houston and Denver back to back so we are both in the same boat so to speak.

    Sept. 8 at Buffalo Bills, 1 p.m.
    Sept. 12 New York Jets, 8:25 p.m.
    Sept. 22 Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 1 p.m.
    Sept. 29 at Atlanta Falcons, 8:30 p.m.
    Oct. 6 at Cincinnati Bengals, 1 p.m.
    Oct. 13 New Orleans Saints, 4:25 p.m.
    Oct. 20 at New York Jets, 1 p.m.
    Oct. 27 Miami Dolphins, 1 p.m.
    Nov. 3 Pittsburgh Steelers, 4:25 p.m.
    Nov. 10 BYE
    Nov. 18 at Carolina Panthers, 8:40 p.m.
    Nov. 24 Denver Broncos, 8:30 p.m.
    Dec. 1 at Houston Texans, 4:25 p.m.
    Dec. 8 Cleveland Browns, 1 p.m.
    Dec. 15 at Miami Dolphins, 1 p.m.
    Dec. 22 at Baltimore Ravens, 8:30 p.m.
    Dec. 29 Buffalo Bills, 1 p.m.

    They will probably already have three division wins by the time we get a shot at them.

    Those first five games seem tough. I'd be happy with 3-2 or better going into the bye week.

    First Five Games... Prediction time

    All I know is more than any other year in a while, I'm putting a very high level of importance on that opening game in Cleveland. Because after that, **** gets downright brutal for a while. @Indy, Atlanta, @New Orleans, Baltimore. That's tough. We better straight up skull**** the Browns though, because its important to get off to a good start and its gonna be tough with those 4 games following opening day. If the Fins wanna be the team we all hope they are, it would behoove them greatly to get out of those first 5 3-2. It won't be easy though. Week 1 is a MUST win.
    Die hard Dolphins and Devils fan.

    The Cleveland game will be interesting. It's on the road vs a young team that will be without there best WR. I know it's hard to win in the NFL and especially on the road but if we win a sloppy defensive struggle say 13-10 I'm going to be disappointed. That would tell me we let the Browns dictate the type of game they want to play wih us. I want to see us put up some points week 1, take the Browns out of there comfort zone and make them keep. The pieces are in place, time to produce.

    honestly, ill take any win. yes it would be nice to win like 35-10, but opening day on the road in the dawg pound, is underratedly tough game. if we walk away with a win, ill be happy.

    cleveland is a scrappy team. they always play tough, and opening day, every team in the nfl has hope, so a win on the road is a victory regardless if it 10-3 or 35-10.

    although we play the same opponents with the exception of 2 different opponents, i like the pats schedule better then ours.

    i dont know what to expect from the pats quite honestly this season. it would not surprise me if they started 1-2, but also if they started 3-0 with at buffalo, vs jets, and vs bucs, i would not be surprised either.

    at atlanta they prob will lose, but at cinci is deff a winnable game.

    they also get the saints and steelers at home, which is key for them because playing at those places is no easy task.

    With all the changes from the off-season and a 2nd year qb facing a big learning curve, I just don't see us coming together all that quickly. I've been saying all along that the Oct. 20th game against the Bills is going to be a real test of this team's character because I don't think we're going to come out of those first five games any better than 1-4. How we respond to that start will determine if we're a playoff team or not, since our schedule after the bye is very manageable.

    I think some of yall are wishful thinking unfortunately. Yes we have added some new talent but the QB's we're up against are proven winners (except Weeden) but even the browns will be a tough game. At best I see us winning three games. I don't think we beat the Falcons and I don't think we beat the saints. I do think we can/will beat the Ravens though
