It is not too early when you are three up for the division and four up for at least a wilcard.


Uhm....let's see.

After next's weeks game there will be four weeks left and if the Colts lose/texans win, we will clinch a tie for the division as will have a four game lead.

If the texans win/bengal lose we will be guaranted a playoff birth as they will have five games up with four to play on the teams ranked 7 or lower in the conference. and victory alone would have the Texans clinching at least a tie for the playoff birth with the Bengals.

This is a Super Bowl team.

Walter, Martin, AJ, OD, Graham, Casey, Foster, Forsett, hell even LeStar Jean.

Teams can't stop all of us. Shut one or two guys down, one or two more show up and get it done. Unsung heroes. They don't care who steps up, somebody just will though.

We win the Lions game. Score? I don't have a clue.

After this game...I'm done predicting scores.

I'm with GP on this one. I'll predict a Texans win, but can't any more than that.

Next weeks game will be interesting rather than important I believe.

Obviously its non-conference so won't have a huge bearing on the playoffs, but at the same time I'm not sure we've gone up against too many medium-level teams this season, most have been flat out turgid at the point we've played them (although some have improved since) and we've played 2 games against really good teams, and split our record against them.

Everyone is concentrating on what Calvin Johnson might do to us, I just feel like on D, we may have a similar gameplan to what we had against the Bears, allowing Marshall to take what he will anyway and be sure to absolutely cut off anything else they might want to do against us.

I'm not that well up on their D but they are big at DT and it is something we've struggled to cope with in the past. Need to be sure to direct pressure off Schaub.

The back end of our schedule looks a lot tougher than the early games we played, this will be a big indication as to how we will cope.

As much as getting the W was the most important thing yesterday, I sure hope the players are getting ripped to shreds in the film room today because we shouldn't be forcing ourselves to come from behind against 1-9 teams. Could see us going 0-2 against the Pats this season if that continues to happen and I want to be watching the Texans in February.

Ok, ok. You're so demanding.

I always start off by thinking "How many TDs could we score on the defense..." so I think we can put up at least 4 TDs on the Lions. That's 28. I will throw in two FGs to make it a total of 34.

The Lions will put up 3 TDs and grab maybe 2 FGs. That gives the Lions 27.

Texans 34
Lions 27

There, Ellis. Now can I go back to arguing about trivial **** in the other forums??? LOL.

Two ways of looking at that. 1) They ain't so tough on Thanksgiving, 2) They're due a win.

I'm going with the first one because I don't like the look of the second one.

You never know which Lions team will show up. They've been injured this season and a bunch of backups are in there, but they can't be underestimated. They still have Megatron. I say the Texans by a TD.
