Seriously, though, I don't see why we can't be 9-0 going into the bye week. We face The Raiders, Texans and Browns at home the next 3 weeks. All of those look very winnable at this point although Cleveland probably scares me the most. (I never would have said THAT at the beginning of the season!) After that we have a road game against the Bills. This is our year to finally stick it to them.
Unfortunately, I could see us losing 4 or 5 out of 6 after the bye week. The Broncos twice, @San Diego and @home against the Colts will all be tough games. I could even see us losing in Oakland. The Raiders are better with Pryor at QB, they intercepted Rivers 3 times last night to beat the Chargers and are starting to gain some confidence.
That would still put us at 12-4 or 11-5 and in the playoffs, but you don't want back into the playoffs with a bunch of losses. The bye is still a month away though and hopefully by then our offense will be in sync and our defense will be a little stouter.
