Default Re: playoffs

I'm not thinking playoffs at this point even if we do have a chance. I want to take the remaining games "one game at a time", and see what happens. A winning season will be very exciting, and very promising for next year.

We've got too many injuries still..... The win today did look pretty good!

Default Re: playoffs

I don't think anyone will be surprised when I say I don't think we make it. I think we need to see what some of our young guys can offer us. You figure we need to win 5 of six to close out the season. Denver and Tampa are winable, but where else do you pick up a victory? Cleveland isn't an automatic and we have 3 division games which you know won't be easy.

Lets hope...

Mike

A win next week puts us ahead of Cleveland in the wildcard hunt. Also, let's hope Buffalo loses tonight.

As it stands now for the wildcard

Jax

Why not talk playoffs?

Thats why we all watch the games right? Its not just some masochistic fetish of pain and torture that draws us to watch teams that have no hope. Right?

Why not talk playoffs? Why not us? The Texans control there own destiny. We are only 2 games out of the Wild Card. We play Cleveland who we are a game back of, Jax, and the Titans who we are two games back of.

We play Cleveland, Tenn, Tampa, Denver, Indy, and Jax.

This is not a back breaking schedule. Each team we play are all evenly matched with the Texans. The Texans have an opportunity to run the table, and that includes beating Indy in Indy.

Both teams in our division we are trailing still have games against Houston and Indy. Which means the Texans have complete control over the rest of the season assuming Indy takes care of there part.

TinHeads 6-3
Cleveland is 6-4
Houston 5-5

If Denver can help us out and beat the flaming meatballs, that would push them down to a two way tie with Cleveland at 6-4, leaving the Texans one game back.

Houston plays Cleveland next week and if we win this game the Texans go 6-5 tyeing Cleveland going into a two way tie for the third position and owning the tie breaker.

The TinHeads play Cinci, I will assume they win that game going 7-4 and then playing Houston the next week setting up a huge game.

We do not control our own destiny. N.E. controls it's own destiny. We need to win PLUS a whole lot of help.

Case in point.


In all honesty while it would be great if we went to playoffs, we're not ready. A good example would be CLE when they came back into the league, had a young up and coming team, went to the playoffs and then totally tanked. Our team is not mentally ready yet. I think making the playoffs would be a huge set back for us.

Default Re: playoffs

two games left and we are still mathmatically in it. very nice!!!

i think we may have a better chance catching the jags than cleveland. clev last 2 games are sf and i think cincy. and they own the tiebreaker with us.

jacksonville on the other hand plays pitt(good) then oak(bad). but if somehow they lost them both and we beat indy then we tie and we would have the same div record as them. dont know how that would play out.

so basically we are out but at least we can practice some math this late in the season. thats a first.

For us to make the playoffs:
1. We must win out(Beat Indy and Beat Jags)
2. Cleveland must lose out( Buff, Cincy, SF)
3. Buffalo must lose 2 of their 3 remaining games(Clev, NYG, Philly)
4. Tennessee must lose 2 of their remaining 3 games(KC, NYJ, Indy)

Its nice to be in mid December and getting tio think of ways for your team to get to the....
