Looking ahead, it's only going to get worse

I can't help but look ahead on the schedule and wonder how much worse it's gonna get. This was supposed to be the "easy" stretch of the schedule and we're looking at limping in to the bye at best 3-4, possibly 2-5.

Check out what's ahead after the bye:

@ Atlanta
Denver
@ Dallas
@ Philly
New Orleans
@ Oakland
NYG
Dallas
@ San Diego

Outside of Oakland, it's looking like a rough 2nd half of the year. Top 5 pick anyone? Buckle up folks, things are gonna get real bumpy.

The funny part is it would not surprise me one bit if we did not play strong in that stretch leaving us fans scratching our heads.

Re: Looking ahead, it's only going to get worse

The optimist in me feels the need to point out that we often rise to the occasion against division rivals. See last year: we lost to the Rams, Bengals, and Niners, but swept the Iggles and split with the Boys.

I'm not saying that everything is ok. I'm just saying that it might not be as bad as it seems. We could be 4-3 at the bye.

I was thinking the same thing, and if Blache can continue to get the D to play the way they have the last 2 weeks this team will always be in games. I'm not saying a winning season is before us, but we might get to 7-9 & look somewhat respectable.

Re: Looking ahead, it's only going to get worse

^ OR it would be the opposite of last year ... like a 3-5 start, and a 5-3 finish...

we will prolly beat philly at home in 2 weeks...

we will prolly beat dallas at home...

for some reason we'll prolly beat denver ...

the best as of right now its looking is not good at all....

just saying it would FIGURE for our team to go ahead and start 3-5..
.. then go 5-3 and be looking at 8-8 again.

i hope they turn things around, in w/ever way possible.... its not looking like that but who knows....

Re: Looking ahead, it's only going to get worse

I just feel with our current OL situation, we're going to be so overmatched it's going to be a joke.

Re: Looking ahead, it's only going to get worse

Question if we win every division game from here on out and lose the rest but the giants split with everyone else in the division do we win the division with a 7-9 overall record but 5-1 division record? Never will happen just asking.

Well if it is it won't be a funny one.

Overall record trumps div record

I think we would be extremely lucky to win more than 6 games.

Yes, I get that same feeling. We've played the worst schedule by far of any NFL team and we can't score points.

We've got a good enough defense, but playing the likes of Philly, NY, Dal and the other teams, we've got to put points on the board. Our offensive line is so bad right now, it might be pretty tough.

Very, very discouraged right now.

Re: Looking ahead, it's only going to get worse

I could see this team playing tough against the better opponents. Remember our best offensive output was against the Giants, I say better than Carolina even though the score was the same, because we sustained some drives, and scored off of long drives. I think the "superstars" for this team step up against better opponents. But it's not unrealistic to see a 4-12 performance too.
