Default Re: Am I seeings this correctly? Can we still effectively get a "bye"?

Do we realy want to see this broken down, injured, undisciplined, unfocused team have to play Peyton Manning or Tom Brady at home right now?

I have tried to remain optimistic, but honestly, even if we make the postseason, we will get bounced in round 1 like last year-- probably in embarassing fashion.

Our whole Oline is injured now and can neither protect the passer nor open running lanes. We have 1 starting CB left and a secondary that will be full of guys who were just promoted from the practice squad or the street a few days ago. No pass rush. Shakey run defense. WRs with cinder-block hands. A great TE we cannot even use in the passing game due to the awful Oline.

These are not the makings of a championship football team. Tomlin's got his work cut out for him.

this. even if you sit here and say "they can still do it" eventually the injuries just become waaaay to much to overcome
MacReady: Beaver pics - don't think we're in much shape to do anything about this thread
Childs: Well, what do we do?
MacReady: Why don't we just . . .wait here and post for a little while longer . . . see what happens?

We could rest up against Cleveland.

The only way that I don't see this working is if the Jets win two straight, the Bengals beat Philly, and the Colts lose two straight... that could potentially produce a 4-way tie for 9-7 after the final week, which we could miss out on the playoffs due to common opponents or strength of victory if either the Bengals or Jets would qualify for the 5th seed over the Colts, who would then probably take the 6th seed. So, we'd potentially have to play out week 17.


It looks to me like even though we've played like shit for half the year, we could still end up with an effective "bye" with wins in the next 2 weeks...

I've also heard that I can grow my hair back with some gunk they're selling on TV.
