will we make the playoffs
we have a very tough schedule left. i think we play 5 games against teams that are at or above 500 through 8 games. we have to win 4 of them. thank god someone put the 49ers and skins on our sched. so what do you gusy think. by the way with deuce only getting 10-15 carries a game do you think that makes him fresher come playoff time and is that a nice quick battering ram to have in the playoffs when other people are a little ran down from a long season?

RE: will we make the playoffs
I agree on all points, I think this team easily goes .500 or better the rest of the way, especially after what some of the teams left on our schedule did yesterday. Both Pitt and Cincy clearly aren't what they were last year (not that I'm calling these sure wins). I think we will be fighting for a home field as well.

RE: will we make the playoffs
Pitt, Cincy, Dallas, Washington are clearly vulnerable, and with Carolina and the Falcants in there, it's entirely possible that 12-4 can be achieved. I'm still not that convinced that the G-Men are all that, especially with their mounting injuries.

Right now, there's only 1 pure playoff cinch, and that's the Bears as they are 3 up on Mintysoda. It is entirely possible that 10-6 could be the 6th wild card, as well as win the West.

With 8 weeks to go:

NFCN Bears (12-4)
NFCE Giants (11-5)
NFCS Saints (11-5)
NFCW Seattle (10-6)
WC#1 Falcons (11-5)
WC#2 Dallas (10-6)

Saints would get to play Dallas for the 2nd time, but at home for the 1st round.

RE: will we make the playoffs
Personally I feel like this Cincy, Steelers, Falcs and Cowboys are gonna go down but I feel the 'Skins got something for us! Hell up here in Md I keep hearing it but yes we split with Panthers. Also Panther will sweep MExico Falcons. San Fran knockoff city.
we ain't finishing 11-5 more like 12-4 we will have the best record in the playoff my biggest fear is the SB we can get there but Bullocks can't cover all WRs

I like xan preditions but it would mean Dallas going 6-2 and they still have 4 loseable games.

RE: will we make the playoffs
We only need to win 4 out of the next 8 which is very possible, I say they make the playoffs.
NFC better pay attention to us right now, this team is good as any other team in the NFC..
Happy the Bears lost yesterday, a little help here and there will only help...
