The way too early can we win the division thread

With Philly's loss today, the schedules look like 9-7 with tie breakers will win the division.
Philly has the Ram's left which likely gives them 7 losses.
Dallas has NO and Indy which likely gives them 7 losses.
The Giants would have to run the table to get to 9 wins

That would mean we have to win 3 games to be in the mix at 9-7. The next 3 games are Dallas, Philly, NYG. Sweeping those three would be a dream scenario, but winning at Dallas alone would be huge giving us an effective extra game in the tie breaker scenario.

We also have games against Tennessee and Jax, plus an extra one at Philly.

Regardless of the qb situation, having 6 wins at this point and 2-0 in the divivsion sets us up very well to win the East.

I think we are a better team with Colt and getting some injured players back. They key is the D stopping the run, they have regressed the last 2-3 weeks. Need to start playing better on D.

Jax looks like crap now, I think we can sweep the Giants. Colt McCoy has beaten the Cowboys, on Monday Night Football, at Dallas before, I think he can do it again on turkey day. We can at least split with the Eagles. I still think 10 wins is very reachable.

The D tried to back off against non-premium running backs to limit the other team's explosive abilities. For the rest of the season they need to go back to stopping the run first, and play on the back end. Does anyone know if Dunbar will be back?

Winning Thursday goes a long way toward winning the division.

Re: The way too early can we win the division thread

I think we still have a good shot. Colt should not be a huge drop off in QB and in someways an upgrade. The key will be to limit turnovers especially those that give the other team good field position. Something Alex did really well until today.

I believe That Coltís completion percentage will be lower, but heís gonna have bigger plays. The kid doesnít mind taking chances. That may not always be a good thing, but it gives the receivers a chance to make a play.

Re: The way too early can we win the division thread

It's going to be a better pass offense but will he limit mistakes? That's the big Q

Colt will take shots and try to make plays. He will probably have more turnovers than Alex Smith, but more opportunities for bigger plays. In the end, I think if we lose games, it won't be because of Colt McCoy. It will be because of some horrible officiating, a dropped pass, or the defense allowing a big play. I think McCoy plays well for the rest of the season. This is all on the hope he stays healthy. McCoy doesn't like to slide, and he may take a few more sacks, so his health will be the big factor, not his skill. I think McCoy is more than good enough to lead a team into the playoffs, but he has to stay healthy.
