Now if we could just have back a couple of those stoopid losses we had earlier this year....we payed for those today. We would have gone into the wildcard chase.

Life in our division is tuff. It's true, we should have gone 9-7 instead of 8-8, but what the hell. At least the Texans are no longer losers.

Our division this year is the winningest division in the history of the NFL. Of course, this is BEFORE this game. The 1975 NFC (north?) has the second winningest division. They showed and talked about this during the game on CBS. This years' NFC (East?) is also ranked #5 all time.

I'll take it to mean whatever it means which is... We're the toughest dvision in the history of the NFL. Heh!

I think if Philly wins (which they most likely will), the NFC E will do it too.

Well I think the team is better than what we see on the field. Think about that Titan loss...Dunta makes a better stop and that's a win. Dunta doesn't get hurt who knows what happens from there on...if Andre doesn't misses 7 games who knows. We've lost a lot of close games that could have gone our way if we had one extra big play. 8-8 is pretty good considering everything IMO.

True, but that's life in the NFL. Depending on what we do in the offseason, we have the ability to hit the 10-6 mark next year.

Yeah I'm not using the injuries as a excuse, I feel next year we CAN reach the next level...no reason to think we can't. I'm saying if everone stays healthy next year...who knows.

The Jags went 8-8 last year...this year a lot of their guys stayed healthy and look what happened...

Not trying to get expectations up, I just think we do have chance (if we make some good moves here in the next few months) to reach the next level.

Well, guys, I feel good. I'm having another Jack and cooking some highly spiced chicken legs. This team is getting there. Slowly, but getting there.

I can't wait for the FA season to begin and for the draft. I am certainly looking forward to next season.

Oh Gawd. It's 10:30 at night an I just woke up from all my drinking this afternoon durning the game, and I feel horrible. I'm glad the Texans won, otherwise this pain would be even worse. I'm thinking, at my age, I should be rethinking about trying to keep up with the younger folks.
