Interesting schedule. The only cold weather game we have is vs the Bills. Brutal start, we could be 1-5 heading into the bye. Gotta beat the Rams, right? Don't like our odds vs a fresh Bears team at home. The immense genious of the Mad Scientist and the sharp picks and shovels of the outstanding willed NimRod will prove too much for us in week one. After the break we face an Iggles team with McNabb instead of Campbell. Not good. Bills offer hope for win number two, but being away from home and in the cold could be enough of an excuse for Lions to lay down. We should beat Duh Bears at home, their D will be all beat up and tired by then. Martz scares me though. There are no guarantees for the Lions. The Buccos may be beatable. So I see us finishing with a 3 win effort = FAIL.

should win
St Louis, but look what happened last year

good chance
Buffalo
Chicago (home)
Tampa

Possible
@ Chicago
NY Giants
Washington
Miami

No Chance
Philly
Minny x2
Green Bay x2
NY Jets
Dallas
New England

i'd guess around 4 wins...i'm just hoping they look competitive even against good teams and that our draft fills some more holes so we can concentrate on a few key FA moves and draft picks in 2011

if they dont make the playoffs in 2011 i'm done with them (barring a lockout of course)

So this year 4 wins, next playoffs of you give up? Brother Dan, it took almost a decade for Millen to destroy this team. It will take more than three years for anybody to put Humpty Dumpty back together again. Hang in there, Bro.
