Re: Getting back in the playoff race

Wild card is far as I would go. Defense has got to start showing up more often even for that to happen. We could have won 3 SB by now if we could just field an average defense.

Said the above when we got to 2-4.

Sitting at 4-4 & moving forward, I think we'll need to win at least 6 out of the next 8 and finish 10-6 to make it. The Must-Wins? Considering we are 3-4 in the NFC already, feel like we'll need to be 4-1 against the rest of the NFC schedule to get in and we must take 2 of 3 out of Ten, @ Hou, or Jax.

No excuse not to beat 3 remaining AFC South opponents and the Lions (sorry SloMo).

That's 8 wins.

Then we really need 3 out of 4 against Redskins and our 3 NFC South rematches.

10 wins might not be enough this year for a wildcard so 11-5 is the mark.

No problem, as always, ... as of last week, Jim Caldwell was still talking about turning the season around and making the playoffs, so I was planning on meeting you guys in the wild card round anyway, .

Sorry, I don't go any further than Tennessee. One game at a time.

For what it's worth, the Titans D is ranked 5th in the league. It's that offense though ...

Re: Getting back in the playoff race

Let's hope the players & coaches are looking are taking one game at a time very seriously. We have very little margin for error or let-down from here on out for a shot. Gotta take care of business against Tennessee.

One game at a time for who? Fans or players?
