With all this schedule hype and predictions there is one simple thing to remember. You can't predict anything when it comes to next year’s schedule. Let’s look at a couple of practical examples.... 2005 Steelers with Big Ben 11-5 made it to the playoffs all that good stuff going into the 2006 season things looked good but the Steelers finished their 2006 campaign at 8-8. 2007 Ravens finished at 5-11. 2008 11-5, of course many feel that Joe Flacco was the key to this turnaround but I am not so quickly sold on Flacco. Yes he manages a game well when the Defense is good and the "O' can run the ball well. For a third example, do we dare mention the Arizona Cardinals? So anyway, the moral of the story is we may play the Steelers and the Ravens but so what?? They have a history of inconsistency from one year to the next. The bottom line is... as scary as it might be; it all depends on Mcdaniels. If he is all he is supposed to be with his "system" then things could go well given a rebuilt defense via the draft to go along with our solid defensive free agents.
