the real problem is that the defense, while it has no real weaknesses, is very average. the secondary is average, the pass rush is average, the rush defense is average. it won't be the reason they lose games, but it won't win them many either. doesn't help that they lost their best corner for the season in week 1.

probably. they'll probably lose 1 to a divisional opponent even though they're all putrid and then they'll probably lose to the giants. anything less than 14-2 is a disappointment though. then they'll probably face the giants in the playoffs again, and once again fall flat on their face.

one stat that continues to amuse me is the fact that they have more wins than the rest of their division combined. they've only played one game against their division too, so theoretically that's 5 free wins left on the schedule. the only other games remaining are the cowboys, cardinals, giants, and lions, of those only the giants should be a challenge.
