Well I have to admit, you certainly have a firm grasp of the obvious.

Default Cincy is a must win

If the Steelers lose to Cincy the playoffs are probably out of the picture. Being second in the division will kill us. Jacksonville and New England hold tie breaker advantages over us, and we hold one over San Diego. Only 2 wildcards get in and Jacksonville is 8-3 so we have to make up 2 games to get the spot away from them. New England is 6-5 and plays a week division and always seems to pull it out of their @ss. San Diego is 7-4, but if they get a game up on us we are screwed. We must win the division or we are done! 10-6 or 11-5 without the divisional crown might not get it done.

Default Re: Cincy is a must win

Steelers loss on Sunday means they then must win out to make playoffs. Assume the Colts beat the Chargers - that is 5 Chargers losses & we win the tiebreaker.

Give Jax the other wildcard (New England wins its division and will not be a wildcard) and you have to assume/hope Chiefs lose two of their last 5. Here are their last 5 - Denver, at Dallas, at Giants, Chargers, Bengals. There are at least 2 losses in there.

My greater concern is that the way this team is playing I do not see running the table after Cincy with Chicago, at Vikings, at Browns, and Lions to end season. Only sure win left is Detroit game on New Years Day.

The key is we have got to get on a roll period.. we cant sneak into the playoffs and expect to do anything but get ousted pre maturely. We need to run the table, which will win us the division, hopefully a first round bye to get healthy and up w/ a revenge game against the colts..

the AFC is just too tough to try and sneak in and hope to do anything..

How do you not see us running the tables after Cincy, the only real challenge (barring the any given sunday scenerio) is the Bears because their D is pretty good. However so is our D and I think our offense (when it is working) is better than theirs. The rest of the games are definately winnable. Now that the rust is knocked off Ben our offense should be much improved for next week against the Bungles and clicking again against the Bears.

If we lose to the Bengals we can kiss the entire season goodbye!
