Yeah I tried getting into it but I can't. Basketball fills the gap until the end of June for me. But there's nothing like football. Sundays during football season is basically football day, I love it so much. I shut down and do nothing productive on Sundays during football season.
I hear you, but I also like having a full day of the week back when the season ends too.
Goff was never a bad player. Always great vs the run and smart. Average in the pass game. Like a poor man's Curtis Lofton. I thought he was going to break out this year, he worked on his hips and improved his flexibility and looked really smooth in coverage in the preseason. Also a contract year, it just felt like a break out year for him, but then he tore his ACL.
I wish him the best, but I rather keep Chase to be honest bc he's more vocal than Goff and underrated in his own right.
The schedule is tough but it sets up well. We're just going to have to win the games against the teams we're clearly better than.
Which won't happen. But we'll make up for it my a crazy win or two against the big boys of the league. That's the way it always happen. Some idiot radio host was playing the Win Loss game with the schedule today and I wanted to call and scream at him for wasting my time.
I think strong schedules also sets you up to be more battle tested come playoff time. To be a SB champion, you have to learn how to win close games during the season, you need a little bit of luck, and you have to be battle tested during the season.
The schedule will definitely test our team's mental toughness. We'll see how it shapes up. The key is winning the division games. Gotta go at least 4-2 in the division to have a chance of winning it.
We can win the division at 3-3 like we did last year. And since we are a big boy team let's not forget everyone has us circled as it's a tough game. As always we need to stay as healthy as possible.
The Saints away from the dome don't scare me as much and who knows where they'll be mentally by then if they start off slow because of the suspensions. I think the Bengals might also take a stepb ack and our D-Line should scare Dalton. We can do 10-6 here.
The media is already predicting we don't make the playoffs bc of our schedule and bc of the Eagles and Cowboys. Hopefully the team uses that as motivation.
I'm not saying we repeat as champions bc that's practically impossible in today's league, but I do expect us to make it to the playoffs.
Yeah, our schedule is down right unfair. I am not sure why this cowboys love comes up year after year. How many times have they reached the play offs in like the last 15 years? Twice? But I hope our team uses this and sticks to what we do best and let's see what happens!
Fewell and injuries are a key factor! He NEEDS to get his head out of his butt!
I guess I'm the only one not so worried about the schedule. Bengals are the scariestteam inthe AFC North so it's a good time play the Steelers and Ravens. We have to do well against our division but the NFC South is very iffy. Saints awayfrom the dome aren't so great, the Falcons are the Falcons, the Bucs are very young and were really undisciplined last year and the Panthers will beat us cause they're not very good outside of Cam Cam and their RBs. It's tough but it's absolutely manageable.

I don't think the Bengals are the toughest. They are the team that comes out of no where to make the playoffs and then take a step or two back the next year. They're set for the future but they are not as tough as the Ravens on the road.
It's going to be a dogfight either way. We need to play well. Every year I say this, but we have games where we don't show up and lose. This has happened for a while now. Seattle we lost to last season, and now, this season which team will we lose to, that is weaker than us? It's going to happen.. It always happens with us!
