re: looking at next years schedule i see SUCCESS(Posted by djrunner on 1/8/13 at 10:47 pm to tigersint)
I think we split the division,3&3. In non division games We will be the dog in 49ers, Seattle, New England, and possibly Rams and Chicago before the season starts and i know that can change but I think 10-6 unless we can really overhaul the D and keep bRod.
Except for a vague idea based on current personnel, we really have no idea what any of these teams will actually look like, including the Saints. In addition to personnel, each team is re-defined every year, and the games aren't played on paper(see PHI), but this is an advantage to us imo. Having said that, I'm going to be upset about winning any fewer than 10 games. If we can just get back to protecting the dome, along with finding a way to beat SF as its own separate goal, that's eight already; we've already proven to be a solid road team under SP. ML will handle the cap space, but hopefully some defensive play-makers will find a home in NO. Next year has to be our stick-it-to-the-NFL year. I just don't want us to have to play snowy SB, unless is against the Dolphins, I guess.
