We don't have the defense to win a playoff game. It's not the 2009-10 season, when the Saints won it all.

Sure we do. If you consider Dallas a true contender for it all than you have to believe we can beat anybody even with our D. KC and company have to play to their full potential (which is tantamount to the best offense there is), and the D just has to basically show up. We cannot have brain farts either. If this team shows up in the playoffs and looks like they did a handful of times this year than they can certainly win a game.
Whether they show up or not is another argument, but they can. We have seen it.

It will be difficult but thats the only way we can win with our defense.



At the beginning of this year, i had us at 8-8, and now with the tie that won't happen, but 8-7-1 could in some scenarios be good enough to make the playoffs using that playoff machine, but we are going to have to win two more games, which will be tough.


In all fairness the d has given up 30 three times. Barry has next to nothing in the way of playmakers on the defense. I do not know if he is the guy, but I would bring him back and see what he can do with a couple more pieces. Plus continuity is never a bad thing.
We are 6-5-1. Of those five games there is one that we really never had a shot at. Week one. Our D was absolutely gassed on turkey day which is one of the 30 point games. We could easily be 11-1 rite now. That is a fact. You tell me one game besides Pittsburgh that we did not have a real chance to win. There is not one.
The fact that we are 6-5-1 and uber competitive in 11 of those games is a testament to something? Because our talent level on D is below par. So staff and or offense is doing something very rite.
We absolutely have a chance to win every single game left on our schedule and than some. Nobody in the league is miles above us. We proved that playing Dallas so tough twice.

Re: Playoff hunt!

I really don't care what the other teams do. We need to take care of business Sun and go from there. We need to beat a down and out Eagles team. It won't be easy. They're at home and will probably play hard.

Re: Playoff hunt!

Can't see us winning in the playoffs. We get the #3 seed, which is either
Seattle or
Detroit. Rawls is clicking now and
Detroit is getting stronger, while we are in a defensive funk. Defense wins championships and playoff games as well. Barry better start coaching like his job is on the line, because it is. We have a lack of talent there for sure, but you need to make adjustments in your scheme/play calling to compensate for that. Our offense is tight, but our defense is just pitiful at times. Half our defensive starters are glorified backups. I am not giving up hope as the defense has shined many times this season, but they are way too inconsistent to win against more solid teams.

Detroit is not getting stronger. Lol. They beat the vikings jags and saints. All were close games.
Do you really think it is going out on a limb to say we could beat Detroit?
Also as far as Barry, when given lemons, make lemonade. However Barry was given mostly rotten eggs ..... extremely hard to work with those no matter how much you scheme....
You cannot scheme and gameplan to make up for a lack of talent. There are no schemes that call for a lack of speed. There are no schemes that call for poor tackling. There are no schemes that call for getting lost in coverage.

Re: Playoff hunt!

Yeah, we're a rather poor defensive team, and have a below-average D coordinator. But, I'm a believer once you get in the playoffs, then there is a possibility things could fall your way, and you find yourself in the conference championship game or Super Bowl.

Our offense is more than good enough to contend. Never know.... The defense gets a few turnovers in the playoffs, and we win a game or two. I'd rather be in and see what happens versus being home. Besides, I'm always much more interested in the playoffs when the Redskins are in it anyhow.

Re: Playoff hunt!

I just have this feeling the Cowboys get bounced in their first game. Was looking back and they've had a LOT of shit go their way to pull out some close wins at the end of games. I think the luck runs out.

I feel the same way. Could be just because I hate'm...but I think they could very easily be a 7-5 team right now. I have felt week after week that the ball just seems to be constantly bouncing their way. It all started with Church picking off Cousins in the end zone as we were about to go up by 10 in the 4th quarter. I don't think it is something that will continue.

I hope JG's post game ass chewing lights a fire. I think the players like him, respect him, and knowing there is no room for error, they have to come out with a purpose on Sunday right?

It's never easy for us, we will find ways to make that game close.

Re: Playoff hunt!

It was ugly but we did what we had to do. At 7-5-1 we are still very much alive in the playoff picture. It's a week to week league at times, so who knows? We might come out next week and dominate the Panthers

Minny beat Jacksonville of course, the rest of the games that really matter are still to be played. Need NO over Tampa, Seattle over GB, LA over Atlanta, and Dallas over NY
