    Big unknown is how much Stidham has progressed and who the starting QB will be.......BB will be able to rebuild and plug any holes in the Defense. It will be an exciting year for Pats fans to see how far the team has fallen since TB's and others departures....

    2020

    Bills (2)
    Fins (2)
    Jets (2)
    @ Texans
    @ Chiefs
    @ Chargers
    @ Rams
    @ Seahawks
    Broncos
    Raiders
    Cardinals
    49'ers
    Ravens

    Not exactly a cupcake schedule when your team is starting a new QB :)

    I see this as a possibility but I think there’s so much money involved, they may decide to play with no fan attendance with the mentality that players are in a very-low-risk group as far as fatalities go.

    9.

    We still have BB. The draft is yet to come. I expect some movement to free up cap space and acquire players via trade after free agency has settled.

    I expect us to be very good defensively. Offensively, we will try to run the ball as much as possible to protect Stidham.

    I trust BB and Josh to come up with a strategy that will make us efficient (not good, certainly not great) enough on offense to control time of possession and give the defense a rest.

    We won't be dominant and we will lose close games and win some. I expect us competitive and I think 9 wins is a reasonable projection.

    I might be overly optimistic, but I believe in BB's ability to field a competitive team AND have them perform above their talent level.

    Players have families. Their families have social lives.

    Players themselves are not as risk, but any gathering of people helps spreading the virus.

    Like the current quarantine, it is not about you or me or any person not dying... it is about slowing down the virus.

    Optimistically 6-10. Split with AFC East and beat Raiders, Broncos and Cards.

    Pessimistic view...3-13. Look at our opponents next year.

    Right now, nobody has a social life. If things are so bad that they don’t play football, then I don’t see restaurants and casinos being open.

    I picked a 9-7 record and I hope I'm low on the win side. It's still early though.

    I voted for 9 wins, i'm in the 8-10 win range which looks optimistic right now but i trust Bill to make this team somewhat competitive.

    It better either be 11-5 it 2-14. No half measures. Either Stidham is the real deal or you tank for Lawrence. Do NOT be a treadmill team.

    With the QB's currently on the roster (which I am hoping) I would guess 6 or 7 wins. If we waste our time and money on one of the potentially available bums out there ala Dalton, Cam, etc then maybe 9 to 10 wins. I would rather be in a position to see what we have than get an extra win or two with some JAG while treading water.

    We just got younger and more athletic at QB. Younger and more athletic QB is worth at least 2 wins, so 14-2...maybe better.

    That is a possibility. They make more money from commercials than everything else.

    Just not sure how much appeal that would be with no fan noise. After awhile it may give viewers a void that turns them off. Plus if players start coming down with the virus the NFL will cause major damage to their brand forcing the players to play. Key named players may hold out causing a sh*tstorm

    Floor 9-7
    Ceiling 11-5 or 12-4

    Seriously people are really underestimating the suck that is in the AFC. Pats will make the playoffs.

    If things this autumn are still so bad that we're all still sitting at home, people will be bored out of their minds and not care one iota if something entertaining like the NFL happens to be missing crowd noise.

    We're gonna be one of those teams in Week 13 where the playoff picture box will show us as not yet mathematically eliminated.

    Brady isn't here for him to afford throwing a bunch of high picks on binky ST'ers.
