Geez. Reading that other post where one after another, people were saying I don't know, they could be this, might be that, should be in this range, yadda yadda yadda.


Stand up and Be a Man!!

What will be the Eagles record this year?

Not a range. Not a what-if. Put it down right here in this thread for all of eternity.

There's no shame in being wrong. I know a very intelligent individual who at one point said the Eagles would win the Super Bowl last year. People forgive and forget. It's not like these predictions will ever come back to haunt you if you run for public office or anything.

I was hovering at 8-8, but I will upgrade my official prediction to 9-7.

Why? I believe in the balanced offense and in the genius of Chip Kelly. I think the special teams will be special and I think the defense has enough "want to" to improve from horrible to bad sometime before the end of the year.

There you have it.

9-7. Written in stone for all time.

Which one of you yellows is next??
mcnabbulous
7-9
koolaidluke
I put 7-9 but I really meant between 5-11 and 9-7. The reason for the range being that I predict the Eagles O will score 23 points a game but they will allow 26 points a game on defense. That -3 point differential translates into a range of wins, as few as 5 and as many as 9.

I fucking hate the pre season. At least the Phillies suck so horribly bad this year that I don't have to listen to a bunch of delusional bullshit about how they may still make the playoffs. Fuck the Phillies. Baseball is stupid and should be banned for how much it sucks.

You've got a new coach and the first half of your season is brutal...although I think you guys have a great chance of surprising people by beating the Skins on Monday Night Football.

9-7 - no playoffs.

Washington, Green Bay, NO, and Seattle win their divisions

SF and Atlanta are 10+ win wild cards

Bullshit Mike!!!

I made my prediction weeks ago.

Top 5 offense and bottom 5 defense with an 8 & 8 record.

Zero
9 - 7.

Yellow is the color of Spring. Spring is the season of renewal and hope.

This is reality and it should be fun watching the evolution of another era of Eagles football. Kuharich, Williams, McCorimack, Verimeil, Campbell, Ryan, Rhodes, Kotite, Reid and now Kelly. It's always good at the beginning!

On WHOSE side??
make_it_rain
8-8, the only real logic being I wouldnt be surprised if they went 6-10, or on the flip side if they caught some lucky breaks and went 10-6. 8-8 falls right between and seems much more logical, especially if you go through the schedule game by game.

So, 8-8.

Out of 32 starting QB's this year, where will Vick rank in Passer rating??

Where will Geno Smith rank?

No RGIII. I don't think people would be too surprised if the Eagles beat the Skins.

How are the Cowboys going to be this year? I was shocked when Garrett didn't get the axe after last season.

So, 8-8.


Apart from Denver and Green Bay, I don't think we have any automatic losses. I think we take the other 3 against the AFC, and can beat Arizona, Oakland, and Minnesota. So if we go 2-4 against the division and pull one out against either Chicago or Detroit (or lose both and split the division), that'll give us 9. Our schedule isn't that bad.

I was figuring on a third solid, Garrett-inspired 8-8 season...but since we somehow made it out of the preseason with Miles Austin, Demarco Murray, and Demarcus Ware all healthy (heck, all of our receivers are healthy), I might see us starting a little stronger and make it 9-7 or (fingers crossed) 10-6.

Although as the Texan's proved last night, our depth stinks so as soon as we start getting banged up I expect things to go back to their regularly scheduled programming.

I have a feeling we go 10-6....the division is weak...we play a last place schedule and there are only 2 games where we have very little chance to win.....we should outscore a lot of people with the talent we have......

I think the skins are much like the Nationals.....the bloom is off that rose.......Giants suck and the Cowboys are...well....the Cowboys......

we may even go 11-5

"I have a feeling" is yellowish. If I didn't know better, I would think that 10-6 to 11-5 was a range.

Can I etch your 10-6 in stone??
Eyrie
I'll go with 7-9 on the basis that we play a last placed schedule and the NFC East isn't that strong.

I been losing you a lot lately. One of us is getting too old or drinking too much ale. All I'm saying is change is fun at the beginning and I'm going to enjoy the season no matter how badly they do. Caveat is that they play tough even if they play bad.

I'll say it AGAIN 5-11 this season.

I am standing firm with my yellow tinted I don't know prediction on a matter of principle. Just because I'm choosing to be yellow about it doesn't mean I'm being unrealistic, ya know !

GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO EAGLES !!!!

6-10, at best. The offense won't be as good as advertised. The defense will be worse than we fear.

while certainly a big reach if you look at the NFC East and their last place schedule it is not impossible. The division is weak and they play a last place schedule......the landscape is set for a big turnaround, however unlikely.

Stranger things have happened.

I haven't been here so now I'm yellow? For your information I'm more of a pasty white! ac6.gif

5-6 wins max. Being optimistic I will go on record with 6-10. We just can't be expected to win more than 6 games of the 41-37 nature.

I was wrong. I predicted 6 wins and we have already exceeded that.

Hopefully my "9 win...minimum" prediction is exceeded.

I expected as many wins as last year. We're playing meaningful games in December, I'd say this season is a success.
