infamix is correct. 2 out of 3 of the possible 3 way ties could kill us.

all of our 5 losses have been against afc opponents= not good.

steelers arent out of the woods yet. if they cant beat baltimore i cant overlook the browns or any other afc opponent.

Thats a good point by Tony, the Browns are still a threat.

Holy Christ, let's not split hairs. There is a TINY chance that the Steelers don't make the playoffs at 11-5, but it's not worth mentioning. We win out and we are in...

Lets take a look at something important, the Jaguars MUST win both of their next games or lose both of them. Assuming that both the Chargers and Steelers win out, if the Jaguars lose one and win one, we will not make the playoffs at 11-5. I'm really not trying to be negative, I'm just looking at the whole thing realistically. An analyst on the post-game show said that we do control our own destiny, but later corrected himself and said what I just stated above.

the scary thing is how crAppy jax played against san fransisco today (much like ALOT of their games this year) they could easilly drop one or 2 AND spoil everything. likely? no.

thats because everyone assumes jax will have a cakewalk through their final 2 games. winning out is still definitely a must and then 3 tough road games for a sb berth.

Well, you know, a win against JAX that we HAD in our hands, or a win agaisnt Baltimore, either of these Maddox debacles eliminated, and we are not even talking about wild card's, but division titles.

Damn the Steelers for keeping that noodle-armed idiot insurance salesman.

you gotta think tommys head will be the one rolling at the end of the season even if we did win the sb. nevermind all the other fans who wanna say not to use him as an excuse. any fan of the game knows his performance is what caused the losses.
