I guess I should’ve read all the topic titles before I made a new one about winning the division. I think the ONLY way in to the playoffs now… is through our own division. Packers have been struggling and we beat them. Vikings haven’t been dominating like last year. Of course, Da Bears are much better than expected so they won’t be an easy sweep. But, I still think we can sweep them. It’ll take heart and guts but I think we can.
We have been shredded by the run game but it was Seattle and Dolphins DBs (and Seattle’s LBs) that really shut our team down. I know Bears will be able to match that intensity on D but their offense isn’t that scary. The Vikings will be a harder task but it’s possible.
I don’t see us getting a wildcard because we lost to Seattle and I think it’ll be between Seattle, maybe Cowboys or Eagles… and Saints/Panthers … so that’s just too many teams that can get in ahead of us at 9-7 (we go 9-7 with Cowboys and Seahawks would be the worst case scenario.)
But our division is so wide open if we just win the next 2 games we’re 3-0 in the division, 5-4 and possibly in 1st place before Thanksgiving. We win 3 of the next 4 and it’ll certainly be any interesting last few weeks.
