    Next 7 games are gonna be tuff I say 4 or 5 loses out of the next 7

    Ravens
    Seahawks
    49ers
    Rams
    Chiefs
    By Week
    Colts
    Cardinals

    After the first 2 games we look really sloppy not even close to a playoff team and here comes the tuff part of the schedule. Since we look crappy so far that is why I am predicting we lose 4 or 5 out of the next 7

    the ravens were shut out the first half, against Cleveland. the Seahawks i think scored 6 points last week in the first half against carolina. they look just as inept as us.

    Please GTFO with that

    Seahawks and Niners are the only truly tough games.

    probably go 5-2, maybe 4-3

    Ravens don't look too scary, Flacco still sucks.

    That said the schedule has been brutal, but looking at how the Chargers won today and how the Titans played today defensively, both teams are better than we thought they would be. So our first 9 games are really difficult.

    Chargers just beat everybody's darlings (Eagles) on the road.

    Tennessee may end up as a playoff team (or at least as good as Indy who has been more shaky than the Texans).

    Baltimore looks like hot mess. Seattle could look like dog **** tonight and people will start tossing out fluke.

    Rams and Chiefs are hard to peg as of now.

    Funny thing about measuring opponents... You're not going to be sure of the quality of victory (or defeat) until the entire season is played and we see where everybody ends up.

    The Seahawks aren't as good of a team on the road. Not to say that game won't be tough, but I can see that was a W along with the Ravens game. Niners game is probably a loss, but you never know -- any given sunday. The rest after that are winnable games, but they can't continue to play lackluster in these first halves.

    They will be pumped.

    Home game for them.
    They don't want to start 1-2.
    Texans are considered a potential playoff opponent.
    The "reunion".

    I would be thrilled with 5-2, happy with 4-3.

    I'm guessing you're serious.

    KC went 2-14 last year, they beat Jacksonville and the perpetually overrated Cowgirls. Not saying they suck, but they are a team I still expect us to beat.

    I think we split with SF/Sea and go 4-1 in the other games.

    It's the NFL, hard to predict how good teams will be before the season.

    Judging by the past two games, you could say the Texans have regressed some. Or you could tell the truth and say that San Diego and Tennessee were both much, much better than anyone thought.

    In the end, the good teams are never as good as you think they are and the bad teams never as bad. That's what makes the margin of victory so narrow and the viewing so exciting. The Texans won the past two weeks because of their experience, not because of their increased skill. It's a great feeling to finally be on that side of the coin rather than the underachieving but supremely talented upstarts. Now other teams will feel jobbed by us, instead of the other way around.

    I'm talking about you, Peyton Manning. We're comin for ya.

    So far no team has stood out.

    Falcons, a clear contender has lost to one of the worst teams last year and almost gave up against STL.

    Denver mauled Ravens but at least for now has looked back to earth against NYG.

    Not that I like they way we have looked, but let the season go at least 4 weeks before giving up.

    If we correct our mistakes and start faster we won't have many issues.

    Predictions:

    Ravens W: Flacco with no weapons and lousy secondary.
    Seahawks W: Great home team, poor Road team.
    49ers
    Rams L: Hard fought, and close. Could see either way.
    Chiefs W: They're better, but they aren't playing great teams either.
    By Week
    Colts W: Poor D, Pressure Luck into mistakes.
    Cardinals W: One proven target, and a QB that can throw more picks than TD's.Good D though. Close.
