Broncos be like:
It's obviously impossible to predict, since we don't know the order of the games, or the drafts/FA changes for all the teams, and there's always the possibility of a team like Minnesota, who just comes out of nowhere and exceeds all expectations (or Indy this year)
But, given the info that is available, here's my thoughts
Green Bay: Split games, we'll lose the early season game, win the late season one
Minnesota: Split games again
Detroit: Win both
Baltimore: No Ray Lewis? Win
New York Giants: Lose
New Orleans: Lose
Green Bay: See above split
Minnesota: See above split
Detroit: Win both
Washington DC: Lose
St. Louis: Lose
Pittsburgh: Leaning towards loss.
Philadelphia: Lose, badly. Chip Kelly offense wears down our old offense. UNLESS game is very early in year, in which case win, but ugly (with neither team having their new offensive systems down).
Total Wins:8-10 wins, with Pitts/Philly being the wildcard games to me. Pitts I'd want to play late in season, Philly I'd want as the first or 2nd game.
The biggest issue for us is going to be getting the offense going before game 4 or so. The earlier it gets rolling, the better. By the end of the season, I think the offense is actually threatening, and puts us in a position to potentially win the division late.
Philly is the only team I'd rather play early, than late, and only because Chip Kelly's high tempo offense simply out cardios our defense for 3rd-4th quarter points. Then again if we really improve our O-line, and the running game takes off, we may be able to slow the game down and win that way, convincingly. I think 10 wins for a wildcard spot/possible division win is the most optimistic scenario, with the offense finally doing something other than embarrassing itself in December. And in since I'm already tossing completely random guesses out: We win Wildcard round, but lose divisional round.

Toughest schedule for the Bears that ive seen in a while imo.
you have fun with your properly evaluated medical studies....i'll believe my garbage. you believe yours.
It's really hard to make a prediction without knowing who our coach is and what we do in the off season (not to mention what the other teams do).
Too bad the Dallas game is home -- a) because I live in Dallas and I can see the game b) it is usually almost like a home game for the Bears anyway crowd-wise.
If we manage to take just one game from GB next year I'll be a believer of this new staff.
No more of this status quo mediocre offense and coaching BS.
Broncos be like:
Without knowing who our coaches will be nor our drafts and FAs, I will say we finish 9-7 or 10-6.
Depending on when we play them, Wash looks like it may be RG III-less, which would make that game easier.
I'm surprised to see a few people predicting we split with GB since we haven't done that since 2010 and we don't even know what offense or really even the defense will look like. I think if we improve slightly on offense and regress slightly on defense it's hard to find more than 8 wins on that schedule.
In case you weren't aware, there is now a Religion Forum here. All high-quality discussion welcome!
That doesn't seem very fair that the Broncos would have the easiest schedule. They were the 1 seed in the AFC.
