Take your half glass empty attitude and going the Lions fans. Real Steelers fans don't give up until the last second has ticked off in the final game!!!!

We believe, now and always.

It's OK to be objective, but I did not get that feeling from your post.

Dawson for HOF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I will always root for the Steelers and hope for the best, but in terms of being "objective" consider the following facts:

1. Jax needs to win only once and, if that victory is on Saturday, has every reason to rest its starters and not care if it wins against Tennessee the next week. If you think I am not being "objective" on this point, check out Ed Bouchette's analysis in the Post-Gazette tomorrow - not certain if it will be in the publicly accessible pages or Black & Gold Insider, but trust me that Ed.B. will be writing about the danger of counting on Jax to win its last 2 games :)

2. The Chiefs have suffered 2 terrible road losses, in which their defense has been awful. For the Chiefs to make the playoffs it is necessary for: the Chiefs to win their last two games; San Diego to lose its last two games, and Pittsburgh to lose one of its last two games. That is not great knowledge for the Chiefs to be carrying into Saturday's game. The San Diego-Chiefs line opened at Chiefs favored by 1 and has gone to even.
Assuming pointspreads reflect anticipated results, the money is moving to San Diego when homefield advantage has the home team favored by 3 when 2 teams are even. We all are hoping for the Chiefs to win this week (after rooting against them the last 2 weeks) but would you put money on them to do it?

3. San Diego will be favored to beat Denver if San Diego beats KC this week.

Please tell me what is not objective about this.

Another factor to be taken into account from the Jax point of view - where would they rather play their wild card game?

As it stands the choice is going to be in Cincy or in New England...if I was Jax I know where id rather be playing.

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.

I read the first couple pages and really wondered why you guys think its such a "slim" chance that it could be a three way tie? I actually think the completely opposite, I think its more likely to be a 3 way tie than us being tied with the chargers. Jacksonville looked bad this week, real bad. It's very very possible that they will loose one of their remaining 2 games. Everyone was saying we control our own destiny because SD was "supposed" to loose against the Colts, then everything would have been peachy.

1. We need to win out
2. We want the Cheifs to beat the Chargers
3. We want the Jags to win 2 or loose 2, NOT split.

Right now we are the sixth seed and if things finish out this way we go to NE for the wild card correct? Jags would go to Cincy?

No.3 seed always plays at home to the 6th seed.

No.4 seed always plays at home to the 5th seed.

As it stands, this means :

Jax @ Patriots

Steelers @ Cincy

If KC doesn't knock off SD, then Denver will. No way does Chokenheimer win 3 games in a row that they desperately need to win...

Jax backing into the playoffs is a joke. They are playing awful football right now, and are just playoff fodder for whatever team is lucky enough to draw them in the Wild Card game.

Although the Chargettes took down Indy last Sunday, I still think it's going to be a difficult task for them to win their next two. Denver will also be fighting for the second first round bye spot.
