Using Ja. '20 vision, it looks like a few likely losses, a few likely wins, and a lot of 'depends on personnel decisions between now and May'
Honestly that's kind of how I see it.All of NFC West teams (49ers are rising, Seahawks always good with Russell Wilson, the Rams at Home or in London we can beat them with a running game, and Cardinals will be better). I will say 1-3
All of AFC West teams (Chiefs that's a hard game, Chargers we can beat them, Raiders they will be better how much all depends, Broncos are beatable but it all depends) I will say 1-3
Bengals that's winnable even with Burrow. (1)
Jaguars that's winnable. (1)
7-9 (Is what I expect). Anything else is pure gravy and a playoff appearance with a 9-7 or 10-6 would be utterly astonishing. But, lets take baby steps to our ultimate goal of creating a dynasty for years to come. So go 7-9. Intervals are important.
It's not just opponents. This could well be another year of taking the 1st 4 games for the OL to gel, and maybe the QB/receivers to get in syncNothing about that schedule looks tough...if you don't suck.
It's a normal 4th place finish NFL schedule, nothing tough about it...at least that you can tell now. Nobody knows what ANY of those teams will be next year.
Now lets play owner/gm would you replicate the Ravens or 49ers?Honestly that's kind of how I see it.
500 ball would be solid for sure.
Personally I'm in no rush next season -- I look at it as phase II of the rebuild.
Barring a miracle we're NOT a legit playoff contender so it's more about development and structure.
