Halfway mark record predict 2nd half season record?

Recommended Posts

The Bills were incredibly bad the first half of last season , but were a much better, much more competitive 4-4 team the second half.   I would argue Bills were an above .500 team exiting last season (which I guess is supported by how this season has gone so far) . 

 

Concerned that fans compare W-L records now at the halfway mark and assume the better record team is going to win going forward.   I am asserting that is not a good idea.  Anyone have stats on W-L record by half season?  For example, forget their records, the Browns, Phins, Broncos and Jets will likely be better the second half of the season.   By the same token, the Ravens, Cowboys and Pats won't be locks as teams get lots of film on what they did the first half of the season.  

 

I guess by this logic, I am imagining all Bills games are winnable (and lose-able) going forward.  Eg, I could see us losing to the Dolphins (who are playing even better now  than when they had us beat b4 TWhite bailed us out), but beating the Ravens, Steelers and Pats (who we had beat until Josh was cheap shotted out of the game) who cannot keep doing what they are doing as defenses/offenses figure them out based on 1st half of season. 

 

Just a thought b4 everyone starts guaranteeing wins and losses. 

 

thoughts?  go bills.

Dallas - L

Baltimore - L

Pittsburgh - L

NE - L

Jets - W

 

8-8

 

I have a feeling we will lose one of the W's in that bunch, but win one of the L's

when I seen this thread, I had to laugh.

 

I think I predicted 9-7 or 10-6 at the beginning of the season, didn't go through each game w/l's but that was based off 16 games.

 

well, I guess if you're saying these last 7 games. lets see, they would need to win 4 more and lose 3 more to get to 10-6.

 

4-3

Steelers to me are 50/50- hopefully we steal that one.

I think out of the 4 games Cowboys, Ravens, Steelers, and Pats there is one win in there somewhere. The question for the Bills will be can they win the next two games? If they can take care of the Fins and Broncos I think they can take a game against one of those 4 opponents and then take care of the Jets at home.

That is exactly my thought process too and how I see it. We will all gain a little confidence with a good showing in Miami and a W. A loss in Miami most likely ends any hopes of playoffs.

If the Bills can't win against the Fins and home against the Broncos then they don't deserve to make the playoffs. The Bills desperately need to get to 8-3.

I've had us at 10-6 or maybe even 11-5 for a while, leading up to the Browns game.

 

Post Browns, I am now downgrading to 8-8, 9-7, or maybe 10-6.  

 

I actually think it is going to be 9-7 and we miss the playoffs, which is unbelievable if it happens.


 But no need to go there now; still lots of football to be played.

You should add a poll for this rather than a bunch of the same single line answers with records. 

 

My thoughts at 0-1 through the back half: 

MIA: hot right now, or at least as hot as a 2 win team can be. They are not an easy out. Probable WIN

DEN: They are a very good defense, I expect this to be much closer than it should be. If we beat MIA I think we win this one. If we lose against MIA we lose this. WIN 

DAL:  People have this as a blow out. Dallas has been hot and cold. Bills do not match up well. I think whoever has the momentum coming into this game wins. 50-50

BAL: Super hot right now. If they can cool down and BUF can contain Lamar, they can win. Chances are low though. LOSS

Steelers - Steelers have been hot for a while now. I think this is sort of who we wish the Bills were. Season on the line here. 50-50

Patriots - Brady and co. have a history of not making the same mistake twice LOSS and it won't be close

Jets - WIN

 

If we can not play down to MIA and get some offense against a very good DEN defense, we are in a good spot. If we play down to them and drop one, I think we drop both of the 50-50 games.
