Man they have an easy schedule. I see us being an 11-5 team and with their schedule, they may finish 12-4.

They have an easy schedule - they may drop one to the Steelers but otherwise they will only lose one more. In addition, since we are one game closer they will be playing to keep the second seed. Saints have a good remaining schedule that they could win out - depends on which defense plays!

We need to win out to stand a chance! I can only see the niners possibly losing to the steelers, our team needs to play like they want it!

Mark my words, the Rams will get one of those games also. ;)

Difficult for the Saints. Our games look more difficult than theirs. And then their are the dang NFC games we lost already

... I dont like to size up the schedule, and pretend I know how each game
will go. But our two remaining road games are Minn and Tenn.

Leaving our tougher opponents to all be coming to our house.

But again, I dont like sizing up the schedule. Too many ifs and butts.

But... If the season ended today: NFL.com news: Playoff Picture 2011

And if you were the type to size up the schedule, I would place my bets that we will be needing to keep those thermal drawers handy.

But first we have to beat the "Seattle"s of the world.

1. we need to win out. 2. We cannot tie with them because they will have a better conference record. 3. They will lost to the Steelers; we just need to hope they drop at least one of those NFC West games and we will take the second seed. We have to finish 13-3 to be the second seed....bottom line

I think we take the 3 seed. Unless we win out, then game on. Long way to go however and anything can happen.

skymike 11-25-2011 06:51 PM

nah, king cutta, i think we're assuming things again here.
How do we know the Niners wont get all pumped up for the Steelers and
beat them, and then turn around and lose to the Seahawks. Stuff like
that happens all the time, right? People lose to the Seahawks. or Rams.

I do agree, we need to try to run the table. This means, we gotta go out
there and play balls to the wall vs. the Giants. And treat each week like a playoff game.

And maybe the Panther game will be more than an exhibition practice game for our backups, for a change.
