    At the moment, it appears that we will play the following teams next season

    Home
    Denver
    Kansas City
    Oakland
    Houston
    Indianapolis
    Dallas
    NYG
    Pittsburgh or Cincinatti (depending on where they finish and where we finish. I'm inclined to think that Pittsburgh and San Diego both finish 3rd)

    Away
    Denver
    Kansas City
    Oakland
    Jacksonville
    Tennessee
    Philadelphia
    Washington
    NYJ, Miami, or Buffalo (This is a crapshoot. All of these teams are hovering at a roughly equivalent level of suck.)

    I have a hard time seeing better than a 10 win season in that, and then only if the team gets some massive help on the line. Thoughts?

    WAYYYYY to early to tell who will be good and who will be bad, so predicting wins at this point is just a waste of time. No matter what our schedule looks like, we aren;t going to have success unless we fix our line. We did a complete rebuild of the line in 04, and see no reason the same can;t be done this season, especially since I believe Hardwick and Vasquez are good enough to keep their jobs. So we just need to find 3 players

    Do you think that any of the bolded teams are going to be significantly less talented next year compared to this year? We're likely on track to play 6-7 games against playoff teams next season. Some of these teams might be significantly worse next year (Dallas, Indy, and our AFCE opponent come to mind), but I can't imagine a situation in which KC, Philadelphia, Jacksonville, and Tennessee aren't at least somewhat better next year than they were this season.

    Obviously we won't know how these teams look until the 2013 preseason, but I don't think it's too early to look at the schedule and make an educated guess about the number of wins likely there.

    Is there any other reason to post here other than to "waste" time?

    At least I have two games within reasonable drive next year (three if we draw NYJ) -- but will it even be worth making the trip for any of them? :unsure:

    Agree completely. In this case, unless the new GM takes strong measures to upgrade the OLine next year could be just as much of a disaster (if not more so) than this.

    Whether a team is just as talented, doesn't always reflect to their performance on the field. I don;t have the list of every teams free agents, nor do any of us have a crystal ball to know who they will sign, who they will lose, or who will be injured early next year. Example, if the Broncos lose Ryan Clady or Peyton Manning gets injured, yes they could very well end up a losing team next year. I don't think it is possible to make an educated guess at this point. Sure, it can be fun to guess, but it is poinless and nothing we think about next year is guaranteed to happen.

    Could do that. FedEx is about 40 minutes from home and Philly is only about 2 1/2 hours away...

    I can predict that the Chargers will be BAD.
