Re: 9-7 To The Playoffs?

take one game at a time... it's the reason we went on that 5 game streak last season. you start to think too big and you'll fall flat in what's directly in front of you.

Re: 9-7 To The Playoffs?

Terrible post. How about we put together at least a two game win streak before we jump the gun on the playoffs.

Re: 9-7 To The Playoffs?

I'll never stop thinking about making the playoffs in any year until we have been mathematically eliminated. Too many weird seasons in the past for all NFL teams to not have some heart. I think (hope) we all realize that the chances of going this year are....remote...to say the least, but it doesn't really hurt to continue pulling for our team to make a run.

Re: 9-7 To The Playoffs?

And there is nothing wrong with rooting for your team week in and week out, it would be nice ot make the playoffs and with a few acts of divine intervention it might not be all that hard. We need to find a team that plays the teams ahead of us a pray week in and week out and as hard as it may be this team might be the giants

Re: 9-7 To The Playoffs?

Just for fun here are the teams we need to pull for next week (Week 13). The team in paranthesis is who they are playing against which is in our way for a wildcard. Don't get mad when you see two particular teams that I suggest. And remember, just...for...fun!

Dallas (Giants)
Eagles (Panthers, I'm assuming the Eagles will lose tonight)
Bears (Vikings)
Jets (Packers)
Washington Redskins (of course)
Saints (49er's)
Arizona (Rams)

This would put us surprisingly close to a wild card spot (one game behind). It's actually not too unrealistic. Maybe the Arizona/Rams game.

In Week 14 here are the teams we need to pull for:

Panthers (Giants)
Washington Redskins (of course)
Lions (Vikings)
Packers (49er's; assuming Green Bay loses tomorrow)
Tampa Bay (Falcons)
Bears (Rams)

The key is that if we were to win out, we would have beaten the Panthers, Saints, Falcons and Rams. So against those teams, our conference record would be irrelivant since we beat all of them. There's still a chance we can catch the Giants, also. The tough thing is that the Vikings can only win twice more the rest of the year, or we won't be able to catch them.

9-7 is pretty far off at this point, and I don't see us beating New Orleans. However, if we take out the trash these next two weeks, stranger things have happened.

Re: 9-7 To The Playoffs?

Is it possible? Yes.
Is it likely? No.

It would be a major feat just to win 6 in a row in the NFL, no matter who you are. If you were to pull that off, then 9-7 doesn't usually get you in the playoffs, and if it does you probably will have to win a tiebreaker which is out of your hands.

Re: 9-7 To The Playoffs?

Don't give up hope until it is impossible but it is funny to see how sentiment changes after one win! This time last week there were threads about us getting a top 5 draft pick and now we are going to the playoffs!! I'd just like to see the team play with the commitment and spirit they showed today, see the D play like they did today and see Campbell continue to improve. If those things happen then the wins will take care of themselves.

I suppose that one thing in our favour is that there don't appear to be many consistently strong teams in the NFC so who knows?

Re: 9-7 To The Playoffs?

still doubt it. our offense has had more bad weeks than good ones, and our defense has played well in exactly ONE game so far this season.

Just like John Madden said last night, it's the teams that get it together from Thanksgiving on who can do the most damage in the playoffs. It is a slim chance that we make the playoffs, but if we can get it together and string five NFC wins in a row, it may be enough to get us there. Once you get there it's a whole new season. We're not in a much different position than last year because of the records of the other NFC teams ahead of us. Our 4-7 this year is pretty comparable to our 5-6 last year. I'm not going to hold my breath yet, but if we win the next two home games...look out.

Re: 9-7 To The Playoffs?

Playoffs or not, I just want us to finish the season strong and build on that for 2007. Last year we finished strong but weren't able to carry that over into this year. Don't want that happening again

Re: 9-7 To The Playoffs?

It's almost Gibbs-time anyway. December.

I doubt there's any way the Cowboys drop 3 games for us to win the division even if we DO win out.

It's all about the wild card. And even THAT'S crazy talk.
