I love the tough (on paper, anyway) early schedule. Lots of pressure on Arians to perform early and often. I want to see lots and lots and lots of opportunities for Arians decision to keep his BFF around be put to the test.
Best case realistic scenario, I see us going 5-2 in the first half, and 7-2 in the second half...putting us at 12-4 and possibly a 1st round bye.
MOST realistic Scenario - We go 4-3 in the first half, dropping a game that we shouldn't...and we go 6-3 in the 2nd half....putting us at 10-6 and in the playoffs.
Worst Case Realisitic Scenario - We go 3-4 in the first half, and 4-5 in the second half...putting us at 7-9 out of the playoffs.
