The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.

That being said, cool spreadsheet. While the playoffs would be an added bonus, I'll be happy with a season finish over .500. Well, not happy but it would make for a good finish after the first half of the season.

I think it's much more of a slam on Bledsoe than it is on Romo.

Hey!

First off, great chart! It's a really helpful reference, and I've been citing it all day as something I culled from SteelersFever. I love the fact that even in the face of a less-than-stellar season, no one's losing hope and people are looking to what can be instead of what could've been done.

That said, and I apolgize for seeming impulsive, but would it be possible to post an updated scenario in light of our beloved Stillers' win, the Jets win, and the Jags loss? I've been driving all day home to Pittsburgh from my temporary home in Boston, and I just finished watching the game (my father was gracious enough to tape it for me anticipating my arrival and knowing that I would have no access to TV or radio broadcasts). My admittedly simple-mind is wayyy too fatigued to figure it out on my own at the moment. Naturally, after a win like that, I'm kinda pumped, too, to say the least!

Absolutely no rush, and many thanks again for putting forth the effort to consolidate the current post-season picture! Take care, and happy holidays to all... Never lose faith, Steelers Nation...at the very least, our guys have really shown their true character the last few weeks!

Hey Borski,

Take your time - anytime between now and next weekend is good - if you post it here i'll superimpose it over the current set-up.

heres just a ruff look at what might happen, I'm thinking about adding the other teams at 7-7 too but im not sure how long that would take. there might be a error or two, feel free to let me know if you spot them.

PS the highlighted part are games that finished.

Default Re: Borski's 'How the Steelers make the playoffs' latest.

why do we need the jets to lose all of their remaining games? according to the tie-breaking rules for wild card teams, they could lose one of their remaining games and finish tied with us at 9-7. then it would go to conference records and we would again be tied. next it would go to common games record, and there we would hold the advantage 3-2 to their 2-3. is there something i'm missing?

also, i believe buffalo could win out and overtake our spot since they would have a better conference record. of course they could lose tie breakers to other teams so....
