That's how I was. My first instinct was to call Smithiak and tell them to get a call into Mississippi.
Then I realized I don't have Smithiak's number and my brain started functioning.
I think we lose just 1 game. Cincy is hurting worse with the loss of Hall. The Jags can't put up points on us. Indy will roll over and give us their bellies. Carolina can't stop anyone and Newton's struggled over the last couple of weeks.
The only game that concerns me is Atlanta since they'll be fighting for their playoff lives at that point. Still, I think we win this one.
So that leaves us losing in Week 17 to the Titans. I think we have a bye sewn up and rest players at this point.
