I concur, 7 to 9 wins seems likely. 11 wins is the absolute ceiling. Like far absolute, considering gailey has never coached an 11 win NFL team before. Considering that team had the "triplets" in Dallas, its likely that team had better talent.

We will have to wait and see if they get and develop quality depth based on the draft and late free agency period. However depth is also an issue with the jets, so that may net them 2 easy wins if one of their cornerstones goes down, or it could go the other way..
It takes a very good, and well coached team to win 11 games, unless you play both west divisions in the same year I don't see that from buffalo. Buffalo has neither trait. One winning season at 9-7 in 12 years and a coach who has about as many in the same time frame? Doesn't make me so confident they can win 11 games, certainly not 14. That's crazy speak!
