    6-7 wins max.

    After getting waxed 45-13 in Green Bay, I can foresee this team completely packing it in for the last 8 games.

    Thats not negative, 8-8 is a very plausible prediction based on current record and circumstances.

    That game will be closer than you think. Never count out either team in a Packers/Bears game.

    I predicted 9-7

    ATM we are 4-3

    With Cutler out at least three games that (sadly) might mean 4-6 (Pack, Lions, Ravens) before he gets back (if gets back)

    With six games left if he comes back to play. With or without Jay we SHOULD be able to beat the Rams and Browns.

    So packers, eagles vikes and cowboys...... We might be able to steal one win out of that.

    I will go 7-9 with my new prediction

    I still think 9-7 is doable with a wild card spot. The defense is still as opportunistic as ever and Hester is causing mayhem, whether it be through actual returns or through shorter fields due to teams being afraid of him. They'll capitalize on some mistakes and Josh McCown is a far better replacement QB than Hanie.

    I just keep thinking that if the lowly 'Skins can hang 45 points on us (and they left points on the field....could've been worse), then what can we expect from the offenses that remain on our schedule?

    It's not cheating, screw you. The +/- 2 is to adjust for healthy season/injury season. Bascially if healthy I thought the team could win 9-11 games, if inj's hit, you are looking at 7-9. As for right now, again it proves the point, you cannot guess this W/OUT going +/-. In 2-3 more years and the team has drafted more like this year and not like the last 10, I won't feel the need to do such a thing, but the reality is the team is paper thin, and it's backups cannot make up the loss of multiple players.

    Damn, i was close:

    2012 Standings.

    If you had guessed 9-7 +/- 2, you would've been right for 18/32 teams, or 56%. If you go +/- 3, you wouldve been 24/32, or 75%

    so you're theory is that most teams sit right around .500? I would have never guessed that.

    But I wouldn't, didn't choose the Bears at 9-7 last year +/-2, I said 8-8 +/-1(again b/c inj's are a bitch that way). This year was an even bigger disparity. While the OL was improved, and I belived the O would be improved, I didn't like the depth of the D, or the any of the Safeties, or the depth at DL; really the depth of the team in general making the idea of potential inj's even more severe.

    I just thought the O would help neutralize the D problems, which they did, but once your starting and backup DL go down, and all those worries about over 30yr old stars finally comes to fruition, it's even worse then I would have guessed. This team is no longer capable of winning 10 games, and likely not 9.

    No, my theory is that the majority of teams finish +/-2 of 9 wins (7-11), and 3/4ths finish within 3, (6-12)
