Have you guys not looked at our schedule?


Recommended Posts

Our schedule this year is a breeze. Personally I can't see us going under 10-6. I know that may seem outrageous, but look at our schedule and we have some real talent this year and a coach that wants to go all the way.

I think we are lucky to have most of our 'winnable' games at home. For a team that's loaded, you might want it the other way around, but for us, we will need every advantage we get. I think if we stay healthy and get a lot of breaks this year, 9-7 is possible, and that COULD get us into the playoffs, in a down year for the NFC.

More realistically, with just a few breaks and a few injuries, I'm hoping for an even 8-8.

If we end up with a lot of injuries like last year, well, the critics could be right... but that goes for most teams.

My real prediction lines up just about with RnG.

Obviously, in light of a 4-12 season, ATL should get an "easier" schedule. Keep in mind 3 things:

- Other coaches continue to point out that winning in the NFL is not easy, no matter who you are playing (any given Sunday)

- The other teams have done things to make them better in the offseason, too. You can't always compare the current team to last year's team

- Injuries. To your team or to other teams, change the parameters of the team.

That said; I am not optimistic of a winning season THIS year. I do expect to see improvement as the year goes along, and with more players added in upcoming drafts and FA signings, I still maintain that this is a 3 year turn around. I would be content with this:

'08 - 4-12 or 5-11

'09 - 8-8 to 10-6

'10 - 11-5 or better - playoffs

Of course, if the Falcons go 3-13 or 13-3, I'll still be supporting! :rolleyes:

Did you say the schedule is a breeze?

With the NFL the way it is you never know how a team is going to be playing from week to week and what part injuries are going to play.

You build your team from week to week confidence wise. Win in week one and the season could go a totally different way.

lol @ no less then 10-6.

I'm sure that fans from other teams look at their schedule, see that they play the Falcons and laugh and think it will be an easy win.

Plus you can't even predict how good teams will be on the schedule. Last year everyone was saying our schedule looked easy at the beginning and come to find out those teams ended up making the playoffs.

Remember when you were a youngster and if the falcons werent good you thought hey were 8-8?If we "thought"we were good then we are going 12-4.When people see the falcons on their schedule what do you think they see us as?A win or a loss?Anything over 4 will be amazeing.Im hopefull 5-11,its a tough world and if your a falcons fan its going to take a while before things get better but atleast its almost football season!
