    Tampa Bay might just be an option for us EuroBolts. 1 flight (to Orlando) and hopefully some decent weather. Always wanted to do NYC properly and we got the Jets again, might depend on when the game is on. (oh and if I can get work for the full year!)

    Why are we playing the Jets in NY again?

    either way, it will be a very tough season..

    I don't buy into ATL too much though, and Carolina will be a lot better next year if they can get some playmakers on defense and get Beason back.. Tampa we should beat, there a mess but they have a very good young defense so..

    Don't put much stock into Tenn either other than there good defense.. offense if you keep CJ quiet its a pretty easy game.. but we know how the Chargers like to make things interesting..

    I agree. An extremely tough schedule will show us where we really are. If we do well, we will be battle tested against other playoff caliber teams. If we don't, then we know that we aren't worthy.

    I have wondered for several years now how much our weak division had hurt us when it comes playoff time during Norv's 1st 3 years, and Marty's last 2, because the team could always coast into the playoffs without any true fight for the division, and were never really battle test IMO

    with this shedule AJ and Norv will get fired next year. Good for a new coach for starting with easier games in 2013 !

    You get your wish. Apparently the rules can be exploited to make sure the Saints get to play any team that can go blow for blow with them passing at home, in their dome, but those same rules are ignored when it comes to the Ravens having to travel to the west coast to play the same team twice in as many years.

    Roadtrip? I actually know plenty of people in NO.

    Let me predict the season....

    @Pittsburgh L never won there not gonna start now
    @Cleveland L Obvious Trap game.
    vsCincinnati W whoo!! we beat a good team!!
    vsBaltimore L Revenge game we lose bad!

    @New Orleans Brees and Co. makes us look like idiots. Blow Out!!
    @Tampa Bay W Worse team now could be better with a better coach next year
    vsCarolina L Cam Newton and Rivera **** all over us. Record day for the Rookie
    vsFalcons L Turner destroys us.

    @Oakland L Oakland gets us back for the finale game
    vsOakland W we might step up. But we probably won't.
    @Kansas City L We always lose here. We continue.
    vsKansas City W we split the serious.
    @Denver L Can't beat Tebow
    vsDenver L still can't beat tebow

    vsTennesse W we don't lose to them. Can see it but probably not.
    @New York L Hahaha Blowout lost!

    5-11 is my prediction with Norv and AJ getting a 5 year extension. Whoo for continuity!

    It's cool. I'm willing to be hold against it. I'm very confident though that they'll not make the Playoffs next year. Not until Norval Turner and AJ Smith is gone will they make the playoffs.

    I think Tennessee will be my away game next year, so I fully expect that game to be right around Thanksgiving or Christmas based on how the NFL schedule makers normally screw me that way.

    I don't think we will do well next year, but looking at the AFC West, someone has to win it, all playing 14 of the same teams, so someone has to win the division and make the playoffs. We may not do better than 8-8 next year, but that may get us into the playoffs

    I have a handful of friends close enough to drive over and join me, that's the main attraction. I was supposed to go a few years ago and they scheduled the game on Christmas day.

    Denver! Not sure where you live, but you can make it out there and back in the same day. I did that this season. Loved it.

    I heard Dean "the buffoon" Spanos on 1360, and I am sold... I would like to change my earlier 12-4 prediction, and say... 15-1... Only because we rest our starters, and Billy Voleck, while an impressive backup (who couldn't realistically start anywhere), loses the last game.

    You can go to the "How Drew Brees Rebuilt New Orleans After Hurricane Katrina Single Handedly" shrine that was built by the media a couple years ago.
