I fail to understand how the posts in this thread are any less of "pulled out of their butt" than the other thread.
Ok, I'm not going to bother with the week by week thing but I'll predict an overall 8-8.

Here's a perfect example. You say 8 wins, well what 8 games are they going to win? Which teams do you think they can beat? There already exists a random guess thread, so why not just keep the dartboard predictions there?

Instead of assigning a number based on your opinion that since the team is better than last year they will naturally win more games, let's see a game-by-game justification of those 8 wins.

Mapping it out week-by-week is just as "dartboard" imo, except that you are throwing more darts.

Each and every week would be a guess, just like the 8-8 prediction. Each and every week the Lions have a non-zero chance of winning and a non-zero chance of losing. I predict they will win 8 and lose 8, but I'm not going to predict which weeks. It really doesn't matter.

I'll tell you what - if it makes you feel better - put me down for the Lions winning all their home games and losing all their road games. I'll (hopefully) start off with a miss but in the end I think it will be pretty accurate.

I disagree with your reasoning, but at least we can see what you find to be the deciding factor.

In that mold, I'd like to change my guess to 4-16. Super Bowl champs baby!

I won't bother going week to week either. Maybe they win one I don't expect but balance it out with another game.

I see the reasoning behind not going week by week, especially in football. There are so many injuries that predicting a win or loss in week 15 (for example) is nearly impossible. I mean, what if Manning, Harrison and half of Indy's defense is out in game 14? You just never know what's going to happen in football, injury wise. It's pretty silly predicting this far in advance. It's just kind of fun to think about.

I am tired of being optimistic every year, so I will change it up this year, that way I can be suprised.

11 for 11 so far!

I was just talking about this last night. How in the world could I pick 7-9?

I really thought they'd get at least six - even if not seven wins.

Ha! Me too!

I was really trying hard to get them to 7 wins. But I didn't think they'd lose every game.

Where have all the cornbread slappys gone? :happy:
