    Do you have a link to last season's prediction poll / thread? I think that I whiffed like most others but can't remember the exact prediction.

    I think Garrett's attention to detail will pay dividends early in the season, while other teams try to work out kinks and find an identity. The bye week works into our favor for the first time in forever. It isn't to early and it isn't to late to disrupt any groove we may get into. I see us going at least 4-2 in our division and possibly sweeping. Overall, my prediction is 11-5.

    Everyone knows the offense can score points but I think the defense is going to be surprisingly good. Ryan's never had a toy like Ware before.

    Went with 13-3

    We'll go into the last week with an outside shot at a playoff spot, but things won't quite work out.

    Continuity on the OL matters - they'll be okay this year, but there wiill be mistakes. Next year, watch out!

    Also, we're a year and a draft away from running Rob's defense the way it's meant to be run.

    I see a lot of the cave dwellers aren't making a prediction. Scared to be on record?

    10 wins seems about right to me.

    Well I guess we will go 9-7 in 2005.

    In 2011 however? I'm going 9-7 aswell ironically. I'm pretty much stuck between 8-8, 9-7 or 10-6. So I went in the middle. I believe we are a younger team than last year, but also a better team. Our coaching has to be improved and with Romo now 31, he is probably feeling some urgency to get to the big game. Every franchise QB wants to win a lombardi trophy, and Romo is no different.

    This is probably the hardest year to figure out in recent memory. All of those rookies on the OL make it difficult to predict the offense, and we'll just have to wait and see if Rob Ryan can improve was is essentially the same defense we had a year ago that gave up all of those points.

    It would be interesting to see everybody's predictions from last year too, but they seem to be NLA.

    Sorry but i have to say 7-9. The secondary really scares me along with the O-Line. I am just a pessimist until proven wrong..which i hope i am.

    i say 9-7.

    i usually go a little more optimistic but trying to be realistic.

    improving by 3 wins is nothing to sneeze at, especially after a year where you had no offseason and added a new defensive coordinator.

    as usual, injuries can also play a role so dont chisel it in stone.

    the thing is, if you are good enough to win 9 games in the NFL, with a few breaks and the right attitude its always possible to win a game or two you might not should have won so theres always reason to hope.

    9-7, but only because of the powder-puff schedule.

    9-7. Looking forward to the season, and it's going to be interesting come December.

    pessimist or the mind winning out over the heart? the 'boys have personnel/depth issues all over the place; hard to see this thing playing out better than 7-9 or 8-8.
