    Free Agency losses, First place schedule, NFC East pickups, Dak in second year, etc.

    I am going 10-6, either NFC East winner or Wild Card

    On one hand I'm more concerned than most people about the loss of our secondary, on the other hand how much worse can it get?

    10-6 wild card

    IMO, it depends on the defense. I could see 10-6 or 6-10.

    A 1st place schedule does not mean as much as it used to.
    I wish people would stop acting as if this is a make or break difference in winning or not. It is only 2 teams that are different from what we play for others in our divison. And teams can radically change every year. Except possibly Cleveland.

    I will take a 1st place schedule regardless every year, if you know what I mean.

    I don't see a big drop off at the end of the season in fact if we draft fairly well by the end of the season
    we have a chance to play better defense then last years. Notice i didn't make claims about the beginning three or four games.
    So the cellar is 10-6 because Dak will play better ball.
    I dont care about cautionary tales,

    7-9 at best but I'm thinking 5-11

    Agreed, to early, last season I figured we'd be 6-10...

    I don't see 13 wins in our future next year, 10-11 wins would be nice, but so much of having a good season is staying healthy.

    Well no team in the NFC East has won the division in back to back seasons in over a decade, so odds are not good.

    10-6 and make playoffs as a wildcard............probably for the best, we don't seem to handle being a high seed very well.:(

    I agree that most years that is correct, but the first place schedule and the conferences they play this year IS a big difference I believe. No way the Cowboys go 13-3, not going to happen.

    Yea, it's hard to lose players in the secondary the quality that we have and not feel like we're sitting on the San Andreas faultine.

    12-4

    Our strength still outweighs any other team in the NFC besidss maybe the Ryan/Julio connection.

    If Dak progresses, which he will...our offense will be unstoppable and we will roll. Many fans seem to be expecting the worst which fine given our history but this is a new team. No let down here folks.
