If we were to fail to win

If we were to fail to win

Watching the Beagles and Skins they were talking about how if we lose and Panties win we are eliminated. Truthfully, if we can't win, given the choice (Panties lose and then beat Falcons and we beat Bucs) I'd rather not make it. This is a playoff game. If we lose we deserve to. If we lose we don't deserve the division or to make the playoffs.

I have a feeling we are going to win, and I hope it isn't that close.

Re: If we were to fail to win

I'm looking at it as a win/win either way. If we win(which I hope), making the playoffs is always a good thing; no matter what happens next.

If we lose, a slightly better draft pick(only if we draft a LB in the 1st)...

Re: If we were to fail to win

season is wasted anytime god forsaken us and the falcons sweep.

that is "THE ONE THING" that is inexcusable.

16-2 or 0-18 no difference if two of those loses are to the falcons

season is a loss

Re: If we were to fail to win

I don't care if we make the playoffs. I would rather not and get a better draft pick. I only want to beat the Falcons. If we knock them out then I'm happy to put this season behind me.

Re: If we were to fail to win

I stick by my original prediction. We win the division with an 8-8 record and beat the Lions at home in the first round of the playoffs.

That's the scenario I've been supporting, though IDK if the Lions can get the #6 wildcard spot at this point.

We better not lose. I'm going to bed now to squeeze in 5 hours sleep before work. It will be worth it!

Re: If we were to fail to win

Well I told you once and I told you twice......

Well this could be the last time
This could be the last time
Maybe the last time
I don't know. Oh no. Oh no
Well, this could be the last time


Whatever the game, whatever the circumstance:
I want the team to win that game.

If we were to lose to the Falcons tonight.
I wanna win the next game, whatever that does to the team's game schedule.

Draft picks. Means didley squat. Draft picks do not come with guarantees. If it does then consider losing badly for 2 or 3 seasons then load up with draft picks for season 3 or 4. Yeah, let's do that. Let's fo a Bills, Browns, Raiders and just love the losses......cos we got draft picks. Either way, we probably still have game threads stunk up from the first snap.
