Predict your team's record in the 2012 season
 
Rather than just give a random number, i'm predicting game by game. I'm also factoring in some upsets.

1. @ Packers- W
2. Lions- W
3. @ Vikings- W
4. @ Jets- L
5. Bills- W
6. Giants- W
7. Seahawks- W
8. @ Cardinals- W
9. Bye
10. Rams- W
11. Bears- W
12. @ Saints- L
13. @ Rams- L
14. Dolphins- W
15. @ Patriots- L
16. @ Seahawks- W
17. Cardinals- W

12-4

Least confident (projected) win- Packers, Week 1. Packers have a great O, 49ers great D. Both teams beefed up their weaknesses on the other side of the ball. Will the Packers D and/or 49ers O improve enough by week 1?

Most confident (projected) win- Vikings, Week 3. I think Frazier might be one of the worst coaches in the NFL, and i think he'll get fired after the season.

Least confident (projected) loss- Jets, Week 4. Jets aren't that great a team overall but they have a good defense and that can cause SF fits. Also...Tebow Time?

Most confident (projected) loss- Maybe STL. I think Fisher has that team playing solid football by the end of the year on route to a 7-9/8-8 type record, and they'll be tough to beat.

Chicago Bears:

1. Indianapolis Colts- W (1-0)
2. @Green Bay Packers- L (1-1)
3. St. Louis Rams- W (2-1)
4. @Dallas Cowboys- L (2-2)
5. @Jacksonville Jaguars- W (3-2)
6. Bye (3-2)
7. Detroit Lions- W (4-2)
8. Carolina Panthers- W (5-2)
9. @Tennessee Titans- L (5-3)
10. Houston Texans- W (6-3)
11. @San Francisco 49ers- L (6-4)
12. Minnesota Vikings- W (7-4)
13. Seattle Seahawks- W (8-4)
14. @Minnesota Vikings- W (9-4)
15. Green Bay Packers- W (10-4)
16. @Arizona Cardinals- W (11-4)
17. @Detroit Lions- L (11-5)

Least confident (projected) win- Packers, Week 15. This game is late in the season. It could very likely determine the winner of the NFC North. The Packers, already a talented team, will likely come into this game with some serious passion. Rivalry game, division on the line, first round bye on the line. This one is going to be tough.

Most confident (projected) win- Rams, Week 3. A lot of people are projecting the Rams to be one of those teams to take a huge step forward this year. I am not one of them. Sam Bradford doesn't scare me at all and I think the defense is good enough to slow down the running attack.

Least confident (projected) loss- Titans. I think the Bears are a better team than the Titans. But I do think, if Locker starts, Tennessee will make the playoffs. This should be a very close game. Since it is on the road, I give the Titans a very slight edge.

Most confident (projected) loss- Packers week 2. The Bears are going to lose to the Packers at least once this season. And the obvious signs point to this being the game we lose. It's in Green Bay, we'll still be breaking in new receivers and a new offense, and Green Bay is really good. This game will be close on the scoreboard, but I'd be utterly shocked if the Bears win it.

11-5

Least Confident Win: Chicago- I think this is going to be a great game and could go either way. That said, I like our passing game against the Bears D and I think there's enough of an edge there for us to come away with a W. Playing at home doesn't hurt either.

Most Confident Win: Cleveland- I just think we have too much offense for them to keep pace.

Least Confident Loss: Carolina- I'm picking the Panthers as a sleeper Wildcard team for the NFC this year, if not winning the South outright. Newton scares me and we have a history of struggling against mobile QBs. However, this loss is strictly pinned on Newton going off against us, and he hasn't proved to be consistent yet. If he has an off game we could win this easily.

Most Confident Loss: Philly x2- Vick has owned us since he got to Philadelphia, we just haven't had an answer for him and his stable of playmakers at RB and WR. We've just been a bad matchup with them, maybe it changes this year but I need to see it before I become a believer.

The games I think New England could have a hard time with are in bold:

New England Patriots

at Tennessee

Arizona

at Baltimore

at Buffalo

Denver

at Seattle

New York Jets

at St. Louis (London)

BYE WEEK

Buffalo

Indianapolis

at New York Jets

at Miami

Houston

San Francisco

at Jacksonville

Miami

Ultimately I think New England should go at least 13-3. The Patriots got lucky by playing Denver, Houston, and San Francisco in Foxboro, so the Ravens game is probably the one that stands out as the toughest. I figure the Ravens could win that one, and then New England will lose one of the other ones and maybe one in the division.

Least Confident Win- NO; I think they'll tank this year without Payton. But if they don't...
Most Confident Win- WAS; not there yet as a team.
Least Confident Loss- at ATL; I picked that game simply because I don't expect a sweep of NFC South opponents.
Most Confident Loss- NYG; Obvious.

15 DET @ ARI
16 ATL @ DET
17 CHI @ DET

Predicted 10-6

Least Confident Win - Week 11 Green Bay AT DETROIT - I think this will be a relatively down year for the Pack but you can never count them out even in Detroit.

Most Confident Win - Week 4 Vikings AT DETROIT - AP may not return by then and without AP the Vikings are SCREWED!

Least confident Loss - Week 7 Detroit AT CHICAGO - Generally speaking the offenses takes a big hit after Mike Martz leaves the team what can Tice do with this team? Also the longer Matt Forte holds out the better chance he gets injured.

Most Confident Loss- Week 6 Detroit AT PHILADELPHIA - I was in the Link for the last time the Lions went there. Wasn't pretty. The Eagles are a much improved team this year.

vidae 06-16-2012 03:04 AM

12-4

Week 1: Chiefs v. Falcons
Week 2: Chiefs v. Bills
Week 3: Chiefs v. Saints
Week 4: Chiefs v. Chargers
Week 5: Chiefs v. Ravens
Week 6: Chiefs v. Buccaneers

Week 7: BYE

Week 8: Chiefs v. Raiders
Week 9: Chiefs v. Chargers
Week 10: Chiefs v. Steelers
Week 11: Chiefs v. Bengals
Week 12: Chiefs v. Broncos
Week 13: Chiefs v. Panthers
Week 14: Chiefs v. Browns

Week 15: Chiefs v. Raiders
Week 16: Chiefs v. Colts
Week 17: Chiefs v. Broncos


Least confident projected win: Atlanta Falcons. It's at Arrowhead, which is a plus, but they have some firepower on that team.

Most confident projected win: Indianapolis Colts. Rookie QB gunna get MUNCHED by Tamba and JHou.

Least confident projected loss: We played the Steelers close last year (losing 13-9) without Charles, Berry, Moeaki, or Cassel. With them back I think we might be able to hang.

Most confident projected loss: Saints. Drew Brees will be back in the starting lineup and that team is far too dangerous.

Knicks and Bucs 06-16-2012 05:27 AM

Bucs 2-14. Josh Freeman sucks so there is not going to be a lot of success there.

ChiFan24 06-16-2012 06:05 AM

19-0.

Not much more biased than anything else in this thread.

BloodBrother 06-16-2012 10:25 AM

Here is my totally unbiased and 100% guessing of how things play out


Packers

Week 1: @ SF - W
Week 2: vs CHI - W
Week 3: @ SEA - W
Week 4: vs NO - W
Week 5: @ IND - W
Week 6: @ HOU - L
Week 7: @ StL - W
Week 8: vs JAX - W
Week 9: vs ARI - W
Week 10: BYE
Week 11: @ DET - L
Week 12: @ NYG - W
Week 13: vs MIN - W
Week 14: vs DET - W
Week 15: @ CHI - L
Week 16: vs TEN - W
Week 17: @ MIN - W


13-3 and win the Division and get the #1 or #2 seed

More realistically, though, this is what happens

Packers start out 5-0

the they get hit with INJURIEEEEZ

lose 3 straight

win 3 straight

THE MORE INJURRRIEEEEZ

somehow finish around 11-5 with INJURRRIEZ

I agree with most of this. I think we're going to kill the Seahawks though. Also, I think we got lucky with the injury to Suggs, who'll likely sit out the game against us. Suggs usually plays very well against the Patriots so I'm sure they'll miss him more than anybody when the play the Patriots.

13-3


I am going to say this is the year Fewell gets his head out of his butt for a whole regular season. If there are no big time injuries, I think 13-3 will be our record. Probably a big time over estimate but then again, 2008 season we had a great year following our SB win.

Another option is we go 9-7, make the playoffs, and get a high seed, and then do what we do, and beat the teams that beat us during the regular season, of course at their house!

They had one bad year. They've improved their team and probably have a better head coach. The Buccaneers went 4-12 last season with a worse roster. I don't see how they'll end up in worse shape. And it isn't like Freeman can't get better.
