    I remember a lot of us on here predicted that we would win between 3-5 games.

    Myself, predicted that we would win 6 games. So 2 more wins and my expectations will reached, and anything more would be a bonus.

    New coaching staff, a new QB, and here we are 4-3.

    So let's not get ahead of ourselves thinking we are an elite team with high expectations.

    Heck, I wanted a 10-6 type season (Still very possible). But I'm just living this season through my expectation and that was 6-10.

    Hopefully we can at least flat line the rest of the season, instead of slowly waste away.

    seriously though... anyone that thinks that we'd make the superbowl is smokin' some strong stuff... apparently that was the mood after we beat baltimore who in all honesty, are very streaky....
    team is young, we have a first year staff that did a complete overhaul and a very short preseason to boot... everything is stacked against us and yet we have a winning (yet somewhat disappointing) record.
    heck we were one of the teams that were predicted to be completely wreaked as a franchise because of the lockout....

    I was saying 6-9 wins....BUT, I thought we would start slower and finish faster (due to what I perceived to be a tougher early schedule and our team's newness to system). Now I think our second half of the season is tougher from an opponent standpoint (Buffalo, Cincinnati, Carolina....all beatable, but who knew they would not be doormats?). I still think that we are a 6-9 win team though, with specific record dependent alot on how things shake out with our running game.
