Brutal start. Let the streak continue.

But if we take Stafford, I could see him playing in the 2nd half.

It is actually a decent schedule with a very nice break date. I think we should have a shot at a few wins.

no chance we will have more than 4 wins with this schedule. we play a few terrible teams but even they may be able to beat us

The Good
@Gb in oct not dec
Rams @ home after the bye.
an actual midseason bye week sorta.
The Bad
Opening on the road.
Two trips out west to seattle and then san fran.
The Ugly
First six weeks look like 0-6 bringing out total to 0-30 bye the bye.
Three out of the last five are road games.
Playing Chitown for the last game of the year after Cutler should be comfortable and in his groove.
GB on Thanksgiving is a nightmare.

GB on Thanksgiving isn't a nightmare. We have an historical winning record against GB on Thanksgiving. Our last Thanksgiving win was 2003 vs the Packers and our closest game in the last 5 years on Thanksgiving was against the Pack in 07. Plus they were 6-10 and switching to a 3-4 and division games are usually for the most part close or competive. So hopefully a non blowout competive division game.

Good: We play Vikings Week 2 at home where there may be suspensions for the Williams Wall.

Good bye week and Stafford could play that second half of the season especially if we started 0-6. Depends how ready he is though per the coaches and knowing the offense.

Bad: Bye Weeks for Vikings and Packers before we play them on the road. So they get 2 weeks to prepare for our games against them.

1 win before the bye, then 3-4 after. most likely 4-12.
