How much help will we need?

Current Playoff Standings:

Packers...-...7-1 => 14-2 (loss to Cards, beat Panties)
Vikings...-....5-2 => 8-8 (Loss to Rams, Seahags, Cards, Panties and Pack)

Cardinals..-..6-2 => 11-5 (loss to Bengals, Seahags and Rams)
Rams.....-....4-3 => 10-6 (Loss to Bengals, Seahags, and Cards)
Seattle...-....4-4 => 10-6 (Loss to Cards and Ravens)

Giants....-....4-4 => 8-8 (Loss to Pats, Jets, Panties and Eagles)
Indiginus..-..3-4 => 6-10 (Loss to Pats, Saints, Panties, Bills and Eagles)
Eagles....-....3-4 => 10-6 (Loss to Pats and Cards)

Panties....-...7-0 => 14-2 (Loss to Pack and Saints)
Clowns...-... 6-2 => 10-6 (Loss to Panties x2, Saints and Vikes)

So...

At the moment, we would need at least 10-6 to have a shot, losing the tiebreak to the Eagles, Seattle and Rams, either head to head or conference record.

Better get to 11-5 or we watch during January.

Re: How much help will we need?

7 wins is a lock-- no one else is playing consistent enough to make me think they can run away from this pack.
6 wins, if one is against Atl, puts us in great shape, bc Atl is not winning out
Minn plays Atl, so regardless of the outcome, that helps us

Re: How much help will we need?

I hate to curse us but I really see a chance at 10 wins. Sch gets easy from here on out with the only real tough games being the dirty turds and the panthers.

11 punches the playoff ticket

10 is a coin flip

9 or less mean draft party

Re: How much help will we need?

If you look at remaining schedules, Vikings are about to take a dive.

I think it comes down to 5 teams fighting for the 2 wild cards:

Saints
Falcons
Eagles
Seahawks
Rams

Re: How much help will we need?

One game at a time. If only the offense and defense could show up on the same day.

Re: How much help will we need?

We need to jut win the games we are supposed to win. This game coming up is a big one, it's the .500 test, we need to finally get over .500 after getting there.

Numerically we are supposed to beat Washington

If there are any tough games remaining after the bye it's at home against Carolina(but we have to win that seriously), at TB, Jacksonville, and at Atlanta(we have the every other year sweep in our favor).

Re: How much help will we need?

here's the thing, we really need the win this week. It is so huge. If we fall flat we are in trouble. Plus, I don't know how often it happens, but when a team switches coaches mid week do they usually ply harder that first game afterward? So that is a concern. We really need to get up early and put the quit in them. I am so glad this game is at home.
