    While I would like to see a good start to the season, It is more important to play your best football in late November and December.

    You are coorect. However, a fast start tends to set the tempo for the rest of the year. If we stumble to 1-4 or something like that we are going to have a hard time making something of this season considering who we play down the stretch.

These teams are always in the mix and I don't see much off a drop-off this year from last. As for Redskins, Titans, Giants, Ravens, Browns, Bengals it's a crap shoot.
    The Eagles don't scare me at all. But the other teams are challenging, yes, but unbeatable, no! Each team has a weakness, whether it is their secondary, OLine, or whatever. We just need to hope our coaching staff can find the weakness and attack it.

    Djfan, I agree. Teams/People tend to play to the level of their competition. This schedule will make us one tough team. I think we can win the division again and once we're in the playoffs we all know it's anyones game at that point. On the flip side the Cheatriots have the easiest schedule hopefully they can complete their conversion to full blown wussies by the time the playoffs start. I want revenge!
    ours is not to wonder why just invert and multiply...

    And, I agree with you Cost. When you play soft teams and win you learn to win soft. Let's hope this is the year of bandwagon death in Beantown!
