We would have benched Gabbert after week 2. KFP and I felt that way coming into the season that he was on a very short leash. We even thought about letting RFP start right away. I think 1-1 or 0-2 and then 10-4. RFP is a top 25 QB. You can win with that if your surrounding cast is good. I
Kap struggled this year. Wilson is a great young QB but he isn't a Peyton Manning level of player yet. Brady? Yeah we better knock his ass down or he'll carve us up. I think we beat Miami even with Gabbert as QB.
Week 1: Miami. Even with Gabbert we win. 1-0
Week 2: @ Ravens. Look, I know he has Kap - but our defense matches up really well against his offense and SN doesn't have much of a defense. Is it that hard to imagine we lose a close one or win here? 1-1 with a legit shot at 2-0
Week 3: @ Vikings. I mean I think we win here as EJ Manuel is ranked even lower than RFP and I think we use RFP from here on out. I think we win. 2-1
Week 4: Cin - I think we split with them. We win at home. They win at home. 3-1
Week 5: Buf - No surprise but I think we win a close one at home. 4-1 Perhaps we lose one to CIN/BUF so 5-0, 4-1, or 3-2 are all real possibilities
Week 6: Lions - Weak team. 5-1 is my best guess up to now. 6-0, 5-1, 4-2 are all in there.
Week 7: @ Packers - we win here. 6-1 but 7-0, 6-1, 5-2 aarp.
Week 8: @ Chiefs - win. We have a better offense, QB, and defense. 7-1 but 8-0. 7-1, 6-2 aarp.
Week 9: Ravens: We win at home especially with RFP being our QB now for 6 weeks. 8-1 but 9-0, 8-1, 7-2, aarp.
Week 11: @ Cin, loss. 8-2, but 9-1, 8-2, 7-3 AARP.
Week 12: Steelers, win. 9-2, but 10-1, 9-2, 7-4 AARP
Week 13: Jaguars. I really think we could beat them but... let's say their offense gets the best of us in the regular season even though we're at home. 9-3, but 11-1, 9-3, 7-5 AARP
Week 14: @ Pats. Ugh, another coin flip. Let's say we lose on the road: 9-4, but 11-2, 9-4, 7-6 AARP
Week 15: Chicago - very good team. Let's say we lose. 9-5, but 11-3, 7-7 AARP.
Week 16: @ Jets - we win. 10-5, but 12-3, 8-7 AARP.
Week 17: @ Steelers - we win even if it is close and it's a division game so it will be close: 11-5, but 13-3, 9-7 AARP.
So if we win 50% of the coinflips we're either 10-6 or 11-5. If we win the vast majority of the coin flips we are 13-3. If we lose almost all of the coin flips we're 9-7. I'm going on who we would actually face.
