    The Cards' 2019 opponents look like this:

    Home

    Rams
    Seahawks
    49ers
    Panthers
    Falcons
    Browns
    Stealers
    Lions

    Away

    Rams
    Seahawks
    49ers
    Saints
    Bucs
    Ravens
    Bengals
    Giants

    Judging by the looks of things, we're in for one long season. According to ESPN, Vegas has us at 4.5 wins over/under and unless we make some significant improvements, they might be right. Hopefully last year was an aberration and the 4.5 prediction is a bit harsh but I dunno. We usually end up beating someone we have no business beating(Packers in GB this season) but end up losing to teams we have no business losing to(Raiders). This team isn't that far removed from a .500 season with a cast of clowns at QB so IMO a 4 win prediction is a little unfair and we couldn't be any worse than last season, right? I think we can win between 6-8 games next year. Thoughts?

    I will wait and see to give my prediction.

    Like after the free agency, the draft, training camp, preseason, etc.:)

    good time to drop some money on the over of 4.5 wins if you have faith that this team will be two wins better with the new coaching staff.

    They're at least 2 wins better. This team lost at least 3 games they should have won last year, as bad as they were. This team won only 3 games based on shoddy coaching alone. I mean, the Browns were 7.5 wins better than the previous season based on 1 freaking player and a coaching change.

    Last season was such a disaster, I can't bring myself to predict that we'll win one single game next season.

    I hope we'll be better. Maybe KK will be great, Rosen will take off, and the defense will be even better (I like our defense).

    But there are too many "maybes" for me to confidently predict we'll improve on, or even equal, last year's joke of a performance.

    Gret, 5 east coast road games...we know that's at least 4 losses right there.

    I mean, you could also say this team won 3 games we should have lost last year, especially that GB & 2nd Niner game.

    Just because a team loses a close game doesn’t mean they “should have” won it.

    All but 4 opponents are common to all our division rivals.

    The 4 remaining foe are: Detroit, Pitt, Cincy and Giants (& I think only 2 of the 4 opponents may be "unique)."

    Steelers are always tough. The other three teams are "on the razor blade" (i.e. could be very good/could be bad to ordinary).

    After the season we just had, it's hard to be optimistic, but in general, I like our schedule.

    (Note - I failed to take into account east-coast away games, but only Balt and the Giants are 3-hour east coast games. Add Cincy and we only have 3 potential "snow" games).

    I also thought the 4.5 line was a joke last year. I was wrong.

    Would love the Ravens game to be in October. And then Tampa in November.

    May go to both!

    several games the offense was actually building momentum....then wilks took over playcalling and killed it. I dont think its a stretch to think we should have been at least 6-10 last season

    I believe that is just a cop out people say just to make them feel good about themselves. You are what your record says you are(or were).

    You don’t end up going 3-13 thinking you should have won 3 more games without it becoming a habit.

    so you completely discount the effect of poor coaching?

    this team was better, talent wise, than the record indicates.

    in the end,...yes,..we were a 3-13 team and that is what it is. but we dont need ten new starters to be a playoff team. a few guys and some decent coaching will make all the difference for this group.
