When you look at the best teams in the NFC, we don't come close to any of them. Yea we beat GB but honestly we shouldn't have and we should have lost to Chicago also if it wasn't for Hall having a MIKE VICK day on defense. We just don't have the talent to be a playoff team. On Offense we literally have maybe 2-3 guys that could start on another PLAYOFF roster.. McNabb, Cooley and Williams.
Jay Cutler being an interception machine AT TIMES helped out. Problem is, not every QB is Jay Cutler and will have a bad Jay Cutler moment.

When you look at TB's skill positions on offense, Blount is a rookie, as are the #1 and #1 WRs in Mike Williams and Arrelious Benn, and Freeman is in his second year and getting better and better. They're gonna be around for a while.

Re: OK..BYE's are over: Time to keep track of our Playoff hopes thread

Ok, I had us 10-6 or 9-7 at the beginning of the year. After Mon. people laughed at me saying no way we beat the Titans. Looking at the rest of the schedule;

Vikes- Win
Giants- Loss
Bucs- Win
Cowboys- Win
Jags- Win
Giants- Win

See 10-6. We have some wiggle room, we lose one extra, perhaps the Cowboys or Giants.

Well...It looks like Atlanta is the only one that will help us out this week.
there up 26-17 right now with about 7 min. to play

It gives the Rams another loss.
I'll update main thread later this week.

Re: OK..BYE's are over: Time to keep track of our Playoff hopes thread

Crazy..with the bears,now packers
tampa bay and saints winning..it's going to be difficult to gain any ground for a WC spot people...

Crazy as it sounds..we may just have to try to win division...

and if that's the case...we want the Giants to win tonight..
makes them 2-1 in div. with 2 against the skins and 1 more against philly...
they still have @G.B. @Minny and the Jags as well...

We can catch the giants..don't think we could catch philly...

Re: OK..BYE's are over: Time to keep track of our Playoff hopes thread

I still don't believe we will make the playoffs barring a nice winning streak Ace, but as long as we aren't mathematically eliminated there is still hope.

Minny: Iffy, Brett Favre is either hit or miss and against our secondary he could have a decent day.
NY: Iffy, especially considering we haven't beat them since our late season winning streak in 2007.
Bucs: Iffy, we always have a hard time against the Bucs and they have a good team this year with lots of good young talent.
Cowboys: Iffy, they've looked good in 2 consecutive weeks against the Lions and Giants, and we're not going to be facing the same team with the same attitude they had in week 1.
Jags: Iffy, just because they have a decent team and I'm thinking this will be a close game.
Giants: See the first Giants post above.

So in the end I can pretty much easily see us winning or losing every single one of these games. It all depends on our attitude, the right combination of preperation and luck, but it is doable. Still though our team has been very inconsistent this season and I wouldn't be suprised if this continued, and we finished 8-8. Not to mention there is a lot of competition for the 6 playoff spots in the NFC this year.

Other competition for 6 playoff spots:

Eagles
Giants
--------
Saints
Falcons
Bucs
--------
Bears
Packers
--------
NFC West winner, one of those teams has to take that title. Might be the Rams.

So as you can see that's 8 teams right there, and we do have the edge over Bears and Packers if it comes down to tiebreakers, but Saints/Falcons is out of our hands and our game against the Bucs will be huge if we need to get in over them. It definitely won't be easy and if we don't make the playoffs I won't be too disappointed, because I'd rather reload and get better for next season anyways, and if we did make the playoffs I don't think we'd survive long.

Re: OK..BYE's are over: Time to keep track of our Playoff hopes thread

The Eagles have;

Giants
Bears
Texans
Cowboys
Giants
Vikes
Cowboys

The Eagles still have a pretty tough schedule. I think Mon. was a fluke. Not that they are not good but not as good as we made them look.

The Giants have;

Eagles
Jaguars
Redskins
Vikes
Eagles
Packers
Redskins

They have a pretty tough schedule as well. Eagles twice, Packers, Redskins twice. I'm not saying we will win it all or take the division, but ending on a good note 9-7 at the least is possible and would be great after changing so much.

Re: OK..BYE's are over: Time to keep track of our Playoff hopes thread

Moob,

I can see us beating the Vikes. they have been competative sometimes but I think they are not as good as years past. all the adversity has stressed them I think. Plus all the losing.

I think we lose to the Giants in their new stadium, maybe we pull one out but I doubt it.

The Bucs game will be close but I think we have better talent and better coaching.

The Cowboys will be interesting. It's still the same team, I just think no one knew what Garret would bring to the table. I think we can pull out a close win. Again.

The Jags are questionable. Which Jag team will show up? When I don't think they are a good team they have a couple of good games. I think we can win it though.

The last Giants game is on our turf. With the crowd noise, after they have taken a beating from the Eagles twice and Packers, hopefully we can pull this one out.

Our own turf has been the house of a record right around .500. You might as well flip a coin.

I can def. see us beating the Vikes too, this game might be our best chance at having an easy win with how bad they've been playing. But I can also see Brett Favre having a good day against our secondary and keeping them in the game, unless the crazy happens and he finally gets benched. If T.Jack is in the game I think it would be much harder on us, he's more of a dual threat than Brett Favre is.

And who knows about the Giants, maybe if they lose to the Eagles tonight it will send their season and their morale crashing down and we might have a better chance at beating them. I just know it's going to be tough because they've beaten us 4 consecutive times.

Bucs will be close and I think unpredictable, same as Jags.

Cowboys, well I know better than to make a prediction because rivalry games are often unpredictable. Records can go out the window in these.

It's doable but it def. won't be easy, and if we continue to be inconsistent the rest of the season I think we'll finish somewhere between 7-9 and 8-8. We'll see.

Kolb will probably be responsible for the losses, as Vick does seem a bit brittle and may miss time again.
