Not so sure, but I see some adjustments coming on sides of the ball.

I have a feeling there has been some evaluation and adjustments made during the bye.

Don't know why, but have that wierd feeling SP & RR are ramping things up to throw out additional looks for a run to the post season.

Re: We can't get ahead of ourselves just yet

I'd have to agree with the general sentiment. It's good to be 5-1 now. Hey, the Bill's could be tough, as they're just off of beating Miami. I got to figure we'll probably win that one. Like you said, the Jet's just beat the Pat's, which we just lost to--still, I'd give us better than even chances to take that one.

But you are right, there isn't really any telling where we'll end up. I think we'll win at least 12, but hell, I'm hoping to win enough where we can relax in the last few games.

It's a fun exercise to go through each team. But with most of the teams with zero games (save Jax) even, being a threat, it's an exercise in futility to try to predict where we'll be, or where they will be.

I think the Saint's have it right, you just go out there and play one game at a time, and try to win. And from what I can see of their work ethic, and a few returning players that'll be salted into the mix in the future, things look pretty damned good.

Re: We can't get ahead of ourselves just yet

Almost more than anything I hope we can DRUB the SF 49ers. I having gotten over them knocking out Pierre Thomas in the playoffs two years ago, and what I saw as generally abusive styles of play, double-chuck tackles where they hit them again, when they're on the ground even though the play is over. I just don't like Harbaugh teams, especially that one.

If we can only win two more games I would hope it would be against Atl and SF.

Also Carolina seems to be getting things together.

Exactly.

The Pats brought their B game and lost to the Jets.
The trap, I see with good teams, is playing down to the level of the team perceived to be weaker or lacking.

Playing the Jets give us a Marquee story. Brother vs. Brother, one brother perceived to be more successful because he is a Head Coach.

Bring your A game and consider this a dress rehearsal for that final game in February.
Same venue...make it so.

So, we play the Bills. If we play and prepare right we walk away with a win. If we screw around then we couyld easily lose.
