Here's your 2014 Schedule:

Home - DAL,WAS,NYG,STL,SEA,CAR,JAX,TEN
Away - DAL,WAS,NYG, ARI, SF,GB,HOU,IND

I don't know how many backup QB's we'll see next year!

Damn!

We should be going to Carolina and singing James Taylor all the way.

Tough schedule. I assume the rest of our division plays the NFC West and AFC South? Then we drew Carolina and Green Bay, too? Yeesh.

At first glance, looks like 7-1 at home (loss to either CAR or SEA) and 2-6 on road (win at HOU and one division game), for a 9-7 record.

Would be 4-2 in division, 6-6 in conference, 9-7 overall.

Not playoff worthy.

Sure plenty could change. We could get better, they could get worse.

But there's a major trend in tracking wins and losses that says turnover differential regresses to the mean. so likely our big T/O advantage becomes more reasonable.

Just highlights the opportunity lost.

10-11 wins is reasonable. 6-2 @ home and the same road record (statistically Foles is much better on the road). GB isn't the dominant force that they were a few seasons ago. Their D is very bad, even with a healthy Clay Matthews. The losses will come possibly from SF and Indy. This year ARI had a resurgence, Carson Palmer finally had a decent season, they can't count on that 2 years in a row.

This Philly team is on the upswing and our ceiling hasn't been reached.

Agreed.

So too, even IF we won AND got past the Panthers, I can't see us beating the Seahags in Seattle or the Denver Mannings in the bowl.

The rest of our division is going to struggle with those matchups. Way too early to project anything.

We always do, we have to use it.

Way too early to predict anything. We've got some FAs, they've got some FAs. We'll draft people, they'll draft people. Some guys will get hurt, etc.

We have no idea how good/bad anyone will be next season.
