Default Three losses that are haunting us

To me the three loses that are haunting us right now are:

1. The Cincy loss. Leading late in the game a muffed punt gift wrapped a TD for Cincy.

2. The Raiders loss. Our D hold the Raiders (probably the WORSE team in the league this season) to under 98 TOTAL yards but Ben gift wraps two TD's in the form of INT's.

3. The Atlanta OT loss. The horrible false start penalty.

Those three games are the difference between 10-4 and 7-7. Had we just executed basic football in those games this weeks game would be for the division lead and not a slim pray for a wildcard.

Nothing we can do now! But your points are all valid ones. Just one of these games back at we are sitting pretty. When we lost to the waiders i was even quetioning whether or not we deserve to be in the playoffs.

3 losses by a grand total of 18 points. a total of 12 turnovers. usually when you turn the ball over 4 times a game youre losing by much more. the fact that we were still in all those games despite our f- ups is what is sickenning.

8 int's vs. the jags, chargers, and broncos didnt help much either.

oh well. at least they are problems that can be fixed and we will fly under the radar as everyone picks this years division winners to win the divisions again next season. we seem to do fine when written off.

I'd say the top three are Cincy, Jax, and Denver, because those are the three that are killing us in the tiebreakers.

Other thing killing us is the random drawing held after the 1969 season that sent us, Cleveland, and the Colts to the AFC. If we were in the NFC we'd be in a much better position right now.

Indeed. I went to that game, it was soooo frustrating to sit in that stadium and watch that game.

If we do miss the playoffs, I'll be doing this all off season.....

Not to mention making a RB who masquerades as a QB look like Dan Marino.

That defensive performance was awful. We made a QB with NO accuracy look like Peyton Manning.

The Raiders game was the one that hurt the most. That was our low point in this pathetic season in my opinion.
