We want KC to win.. KC losing to the Giants pretty much ruined there chances at 8-6.. If they beat San Diego that will leave them at 9-6 while we move to 10-5 with a win over the Brownies.. I may be wrong but .... Go Chefs.....San Diego has to go through KC in KC and Denver at home.. the odds are with us so just keep the hope alive and pray it up!

I can see the chefs losing to the chargers..... I just don't think they have the defense to stop them. I hope I am wrong.
On that note, I can also see the chargers getting whooped by the broncos.
SO...... SD loses one of their last two, we win out and take the 6th spot

One game at a time.....

Here we come brownies!!!

GO STEELERS!!!

The chance of the Steelers not making the playoffs at 11-5 is more than tiny and here is why.

1. Unless LT's ankle is badly hurt, does anyone believe he will not run at will on KC this weekend after Tiki Barber was made to look like the second coming of Emmitt Smith on Saturday against the "tackling" of KC? Chiefs are for some reason favored by 1 point but I bet Chargers win their last 2 games against KC and Denver to finish 11-5.

2. Jax looked horrible against the 49ers. If the Jags win at Houston this weekend, I believe they clinch a playoff berth, presumably would rest starters for their last regular season game against Tennesee, and might not even mind finishing up as the #6 rather than #5 seed to avoid going to New England in the first playoff round. Alternatively, the Jags were bad enough yesterday that losing to the Texans is not out of the question. Put it all together and I see the Jags at 11-5.

3. Due to the Jax loss (the first Maddox fiasco game), Steelers lose a three way tie to Jax and Chargers. This gets back to the Jax loss potentially being a season killer; Maddox admittedly was horrible in that game, but unlike the Baltimore game Cowher could have pulled Maddox for Batch and refused to do so, an act of stubborness that was compounded by not running Bettis in OT when the kickoff return already had the Steelers in FG range prior to Maddox fumbling the snap.

If the Steelers get beaten out by the Chargers it will be disappointing, but the Chargers got it done in Indy, while the Steelers loss to Indy was one of three games in a row in which the Steelers failed to bring their A game (losing to the Ravens even with Maddox was inexcusable) and may now have to pay the price.

As it stands right now you are correct, however things can change that we don't control.

If Pittsburgh wins out, San Diego wins out, and the Jags win out (or lose both) we are in.

If Pittsburgh wins out, San Diego wins out, and the Jags play 500 ball WE ARE OUT.

Head to head works when applicable.

Three or More Clubs
(Note: If two clubs remain tied after third or other clubs are eliminated, tie breaker reverts to step 1 of applicable two-club format.)
1. Apply division tie breaker to eliminate all but the highest ranked club in each division prior to proceeding to step 2. The original seeding within a division upon application of the division tie breaker remains the same for all subsequent applications of the procedure that are necessary to identify the two Wild-Card participants.
2. Head-to-head sweep. (Applicable only if one club has defeated each of the others or if one club has lost to each of the others.)
3. Best won-lost-tied percentage in games played within the conference.

Like Figg stated in a different thread... WE DON'T CONTROL OUR DESTINY! We need things to go our way. Go Chiefs!
