I've been thinking 6 or 7 and nobody has picked 6 yet so I picked 6. I hope I'm wrong, but there are a lot of kids on the team and a lack of proven talent.

8-8. Don't know what to expect this year, but Luck should be worth a few more wins than last year.

Don't most of us agree that a healthy Luck is worth 4 games over last seasons record?

Don't most of us agree that a competent coaching staff is worth 2 games over last seasons record?

Th O-Line is better. The TE position is better. The speed at LB is night and day. A healthy Geathers and Hooker makes the safety position better. I really don't think that we are worse than last season at any position group except possibly WR.

That's why I picked 10-6.

Yeah, 7-9 seems about right.

I would state it as Luck is worth 6-7 more wins, especially when you consider how many games this team lost last year due to poor second half QB play. That is why I think 10-11 wins is not an unreasonable prediction.

I don't think it's that linear. New coaches are good, but new schemes mean mistakes. Luck being back is good, but he will be rusty for a while. And his WRs look bad.

And we have a tougher looking schedule this year.

I don't think 10 wins is impossible but it would be a pleasant surprise.
