I have to admit
 
I went to the game just hoping that Drew would set the record and not really caring if we won or not because I didn't want to mess up our next draft, but I admit that after spending 3 hours watching rivers run up to the referrees waving his arms and yelling and throwing his little hissy fits play after play after play that by the end I was saying "To heck with the future; Send that whining baby back home to his mommy with a big L".

IF, and its a big IF... IF we can win our next two after the bye, I think we have a legit shot at a wildcard spot. We'd be 3-4 and playing most of the teams we need to beat to make the playoffs.

Call me crazy but I think this team is capable of going on a 9-2 run.

I don't know why that would be crazy. I think they can still win the division...but only because there is so much football left and I've learned from many past experiences that I don't know nothing about what is going to happen until it happens.

A normal year I would say yes, the failcons could have some bad luck and we could get hot and embark on a long winning streak, but without Sean, and ANOTHER coaching change on the horizon, I just don't see that happening.

Wildcard could be a legit chance, have to keep winning.

The coaching change in the horizon is not a bad thing at all, on the contrary: Kromer will be back to full o-line coaching duties. I actually expect the o-line to be better after that. I also expect the LB play to pick up a bit: right now, the have 0 attention from Vitt. When Vitt comes back, they at least have some attention from him.

I think some are looking at the Wild Card spot as it has been for the NFC in previous years as something you need to be 12-4 to get. There have been huge upsets in the NFC pretty much each week that will come back to haunt other teams as much as ours will come back to haunt us.

I know this is HUGELY premature but... Odds have us still in the hunt at 1-4. ( just realized this was up and running all season.)
NFL.com - Playoff Picture

We are 0-1 in the Division.. beat the Bucks and we jump 3 spots. Thankfully we are pulling our sh1t together before we have played all but one Division game.

There are going to be some crazy azzed tie breakers this year. mark my words.

Yes, EVERYONE is still in the hunt. Including the Saints.

Fat lady sit down.

And possibly 3 or 4 way ties, which can negate a head to head victory.



It ain't over... if we keep winning that is.

Just when Kromer starts to get some fire in him is reign as head coach will be over. He was screaming at the OL on the bench after one series and talking to the Dline on another occasion Sunday night. It was good to see.

That probably part of the success. He has been playing HC and not screaming at the linemen.

Linemen need to be screamed at.
