Highly doubtful on that playoffs thing. That said, why don't we just shut up about it until we can demonstrate that we can win more than one game in a row, and get to .500.

Who's up? Colts. Hangover, anyone?

Re: Getting back in the playoff race

Let's just see 2 good games in a row and we'll go from there......

the Panthers could lose their next 3 pretty easily so you never know, but the falcons schedule is not too difficult so we would still have to catch them

Re: Getting back in the playoff race

I was looking at the season and +.500 is definitely doable.

In short, we got this.

Re: Getting back in the playoff race

Bad news- other than Carolina, the teams we lost to are 8-8. with Arizona also now going in the wrong direction after losing to a 3rd string QB

The good news is that other than the division leaders, everybody else sucks too

You can pencil the Falcons and Panthers in, leaving one spot. Technically we are a game and a half behind Minnesota, so I think 10 wins will be enough
We have 8 winnable games left... depends if Jekyll or Hyde shows up

The cream will rise to the top.

If we really are as bad as our record shows, it will be revealed over the next 5 or 6 games.

I think we're better than what our record says and we'll win most of our remaining games. I do have a sickening feeling that the Tampa loss may be the game we look back on as the one game that kept us from making the playoffs.

Play like we played Atlanta we will be no push over. They play like pre-season and the games we lost 5-11 at best.
