    I know many (or most) of you saw this in the papers or online, but I just came across it.

    No gimmies in that schedule - rest up boys, and I hope you get some help in the offseason!

    If we improve somewhat and stay a whole lot healther than last year, I say 11-5 is plausible.

    I thought we'd be 10-6 or 11-5 this year, and looking back through the games we easily could have been.

    Our defense needs some fixing at all 3 levels (CB, OLB, NT) but the offense doesn't need much. A strong #2 RB, a deep threat WR, definitely a RG, and we can be right back in the division race.

    Hopefully Peyton retires if they win the SB this year, but if they don't, I see 11-5 if we can add depth and fill some areas of need, have to see how the schedule plays out though.

    Too bad about the NFC West draw. NFC East helped get us to the playoffs this year but no such luck next year. On the other hand the AFC East looks like a comfortable group of opponents, especially with us getting the Patriots at home. Hopefully those four potential cold weather road games come early.

    Our AFC draw is probably about as easy as it could be. The AFC West is obviously challenging, but we did well against the Broncos and Chiefs this year. NFC West is going to be tough, but at least we play the Seattle and St. Louis at home, and SF and ARI are close enough to make those easy on the travel schedule.

    I'd see it like this:

    With Manning: 10-6
    Without Manning: 11-5

    I figure that we'll split our AFCE opponents and our NFCW opponents
    Split with KC and DEN (unless Manning is gone, then we get 2 wins against DEN)
    Beat our AFCN/S opponents and the Raiders.

    Alternatively, we **** the bed against the Raiders and one of our AFCN/S opponents and go 8-8/9-7.

    Around and round she goes, wherever she stops, Nobody knows. Great thing that they still have to play the games.

    I'm thinking Arizona and SF, as I can fly in/out the same day.

    It's all about the draft, IMHO. TT pulls a repeat performance and lands two or three starters who upgrade the present roster, than I say we go 10/6 (+/- 1). Not so hot a draft 9/7 (+/- 1).
    FWIW last year I was figuring 8/8 (+/- 1). I got that right but the F/O never mailed me any T-shirts or Mike McCoy Visors or anything. WTF?

    I just watched Money Ball for the first time yesterday...Maybe the F/O thought you should be asking for Telesco T-shirts instead of McCoy visors

    If you buy about six season tickets at the club level, you can be entered into a raffle for the chance to get the free t-shirt...

    Actually, all season ticket holders got free t-shirts last season & a free subscription to NFL GameRewind. If you have Verizon, you also got a free subscription to their NFL Mobile, as long as you were within 1 mile of the stadium.

    I got free access to NFL mobile and I don't own season tickets.

    Also my post was tongue and cheek, as anyone can obtain from the far fetched nature of it.

    I look at our last two opponents (JAC and BAL) and I'm struck.... Wow, we got 3rd place in the division this year. Won a playoff game, but third place. It doesn't feel like third place. The JAGUARS were third place in their division.

    Technically the NFL did away with 'place' schedules. This schedule will wither drive us all to drinking, or make us strut like the dominant Roosters in a hen yard....

    if we planned a group thing, it might be easier to travel to Arizona, we can probably get a group of tickets together.

    It may be "old", R8derH8der, but at least I can still attend home games. Your issues are far bigger than raider fans.

    Cakewalk.
    16-0 easily.

    Philip ******* Rivers throwing laser guided missiles to KA13 with RM24 playing for a new contract, all under the the great Mike McCoy's vision, we're talking 15-1 at least.

    A realistic optimist - I love it!

    Here's hoping Peyton spends tomorrow evening on his a**, and retires to Omaha......

    We're definitely going to have to earn it next season. But if we improve I can easily see us competing for the top of the division with a 12-4 record. We can hang with and beat Denver all day, we just have to clean up and finish those close\sloppy games we lost this past year.
