All things considered, they overachieved last season. Maybe they dropped seeding late in the season, but when the playoffs rolled around they showed up. So it didn't even matter.
If we'd have won those last three games last year we'd have finished 13-3 & been the second seed.
Only difference is that no one expected us to be the 2 seed. We were the favorites to be the #1 seed. But everyone saw the writing on the wall, the team failed to adjust to what was happening & now we're the #3 seed.
I understand why everyone is so upset. We've got a downward trend going... I understand everyone thinking we're going to lose next week.
What I don't understand, is if we beat the Bengals, how's that going to be looked at as "nothing"
