    I was just checking out our opponents for next season, and I must say It looks like the easiest schedule we've had in a while. We get to play the AFC north (IMO the weakest Div. in the league), and the NFC West, where SF just lost all their good players, and Arizona is, well, Arizona. Not to mention we get the Jests and Jills twice each (obviously) :lol: Both of whom we swept last year.

    Right now it's looking like our toughest opponents will be Denver and New England. We also get Tennesee again, who kicked our a** last year but I think that judging by this offseason so far, we've upgraded while they've lost players.

    I know it's still early to be saying who will be good and bad in 2004, but i'm pretty excited about all our new players and i'm just trying to get a glimpse of what we can expect.

    Interesting point dread. Maybe Boston and CC will become buddies, and Boston will take out Kennedy for the hell of it......

    Come to think of it...Denver may not be so tough next year. Yeah they got Baily, but he can't be in two places at once! Mwahhahahahaha!
    Plus they just traded they're stud RB so I'm pretty sure they can't run against us. (But who Can?:lol:)

    F*CK DENVER!! WE'RE GOING 16-0 BABY!!!

    We want Chambers to rub off on Boston cause Chambers has been a model player so far.

    It may look like the easiest but I read the other day that we have the toughest strength of schedule in the NFL next year. Our opponenets had a combined .531 winning % and that was the highest of all teams. It may look easy but it will be a challenge.

    Well, what else is new... every year we have one of the top-5 toughest schedules in the NFL, and IMO it is one of the reasons that we have it so tough every year. The teams that typically make it to the big dance are the ones that can cakewalk through the regular and are able to turn it on once the postseason starts.

    New England was one major exception this past year. Yes, they had some breaks, but you have to give them credit for handling a tough schedule and making a run the way they did.

    It would be great to see Boston run right over Kenoy. Denver won't be any better this year than they were last year. They lost their best player.

    I hope kennedy gets blasted, not juust for his hit on chambers, but for all the other hits, I HATE that guy, and I almost wish something bad happened to him so he would stop hitting like that.

    This is one of those feel good threads...we haven't even completed our OL and you guys are talking about what our receivers are going to do..without protection for our QB's, I'd say our receivers will catch 2 yard passes. So not to disfuse the enthusium, but we really such wait to see what our O will really look like first.

    We can dream!! I, for one, would like to see us open a can of whoop-a$$ on SF, since I have been a Fins Fan I think we have played them three times, going back to our SB loss to them, and every time we have gotten trampled!!

    The game is in Denver!?!?! :jumper: You guys just made my day. I'm there man!!! I was at the last game where CC got rocked by Kennedy and Fie-Fie led the winning drive with a broken thumb. I gotta say, that was one of the best live sporting events I have ever seen in person. Let's hope for a repeat!!!

    The schedule is never easy when you got to play an AFC East opponent twice a year.

    I will be up for every game this season. I will be especially up during our games with the Pats. I know that we will shoot down the Jets and butcher Buffalo, no sweat.
    The Pats/Fins will be the games to watch, at least for me they will be.

    Also.... It doesn't look to easy to me.

    In Seattle, In Cinncinatti, In Denver, In Baltimore. And Of course playing the Bills, Jets, and Patriots twice a year.

    Your home schedule is pretty favorable with St.Louis, and the East opponents being the only hard games.

    No way in my oponion is that an easy schedule.

    Honestly, I don't see this schedule as a cakewalk at all. Cincinnati will be in full effect of Marvin Lewis by the time we get to them. If Palmer is half as good as they think he will be, that will be a tough game. The AFC East always plays each other hard. St. Louis should be tough again, Seattle as well.

    I am stoked for the away game in S.F. I haven't been to a fins game in awhile (whenever the last game in Oakland was) The Niners team looks to be in full rebuilding mode so hopefully I get to enjoy a nice Miami BEATDOWN of the Niners.

    Also, Kennedy, I imagine won't try too much against Boston. I figure if he does, Boston won't hesitate to put him in his place. Anyone know how he fred against him last year?

    I didn't really mean it would be a cakewalk. Just that it's easier than we usually have it. I know Cinci is tough, they're my 2nd favorite team, but I think we can handle them. Baltimore, as of right now, has NO receivers. And Cleveland and Pittsburgh will probably have worse years than they did last year. I don't know what the steelers are thinking by addressing they're biggest need (HB) with 29 year old Duce Staley when they're sitting on the 11th pick.

    The only way you can be sure that it is a *L* is if you believe that chambers trade rumor...... Otherwise, Miami will make the Seapoles wish they never showed up for the game.

    Welp, every NFL team loses a game that it shouldn't lose, so if we have to have it, let be the seahawks since they aren't in our division.

    in that case a game we shouldnt lose would be ARI. There would be no shame in losing to SEA on the road.

    The good thing about playing the Bengals is they are sarting Carson Palmer this year.

    Hopefully that game is early and we get him when he's still nervous and not ready.

    I'm pretty sure we could beat them on the road against an inexperienced Palmer starting.

    why would Marvin Lewis toy with his teams chemistry? I dont understand this move. But then again, im not a NFL head coach. It should be interesting to see how yhis plays out. I feel bad for ****na
