I guessed 10-6 when this was first posted but looking at our schedule and how the D is playing coupled with Ben coming back there is no team on our schedule that can beat us. Not going to change to 16-0 but my point is that if/when we lose it will be because we did something stupid. Turn the ball over to many times, special teams, 17 penalties, something like that. Seriously who is playing better ball then us right now? And who has more upside on offense in two weeks then us? Batch had no sacks last week, ZERO. And that was with a back up guard. Anybody know when that happened last? NO, Cin, Balt and NE will be tough games, those were the games i thought we would lose, but there is no reason we don't beat them. This week will be a good test but the ratbirds are not playing that great. I am going to guess our first lost game may not come until the NO game.
I'm still going to guess that our first loss comes this week against Baltimore. They still have a better defense than any that we've played already (though they have noone that can hang with Mr. Wallace) and Boldin has really made their offense better. The Steelers defense could play as well as they have been and shut them down allowing us to win a close low-scoring game, but I just see the defense slowing down at some point. They can't keep playing like this...can they? Plus we're always one injury away from just having a good defense rather than a legendary one.
