Default playoffs more possible than you might think

http://blogs.chron.com/jeromesolomon...layoffs_1.html

This is the math and I can cook these number, can you?

Quote:
Texans in the playoffs? Oh, it's possible, and here's how:

* I guess it should go without saying that the Texans have to win 'em all and finish 9-7.

* Titans (5-7) - Let's erase the Titans first. They need to lose just one game.

* Dolphins (6-6) - Need to lose one game (plus loss to Texans). Beating Jags this week would be good thing too.

* Jets - Need to lose any two games (Tampa Bay, Atlanta, Indy and Cincinnati).

* Ravens - Need to lose any two games (Detroit, Chicago, at Pitt and at Oakland).

* Steelers - Need one more loss (Green Bay, Baltimore and at Miami).

* Jacksonville - Need to lose three of last four games, which isn't unlikely considering they host Miami, Indy the next two weeks, and finish at New England and at Cleveland. This is the only one that calls for a fold, and it wouldn't be that way had the Texans not given them two victories.

similar to arizona last season, i think we're more dangerous in the playoffs than during the regular season. if defending larry fitzgerald was a nightmare with double coverage, trying to guard andre in his first playoff appearance with half of the opposing team would be an effort in futility - and what he'd do might be a felony in most states.

This team can beat any team any given day and lose to any team any given day... the Texans dominated the Bengals in Cincy remember? The last team anyone would wanna face in the playoffs would be the Texans. THAT is why this team is so damn frustrating and why it needs a new head coach who can get the team to play the way they're capable of ALL THE TIME (or atleast consistently)

One thing you left out, the TEXANS need to win football games. That's the unlikely part.

I suppose I should point out the begining qualifier that they have to win out.


Gark Kubiak getting into the playoffs would be the equivalent of getting a prostitute for the Jonas Brothers for their birthday. Neither would know what to do.

Seeing as how all of our games are important now, can't lose a game...to get into the playoffs and win out would be a great thing and i'd LOVE to see it...

But looking at our recent history of playing games that matter...we always lose. So the Seahawks 2morrow, i'm almost counting on some heartbreaking loss and reading the forums 2morrow "....Can we get rid of Brown?" threads.

When Pitts and Brisiel went down, this offense's potential made me nervous.

When OD went down I lost hope that this offense could carry the team any longer.

Now that Slaton is down we've lost any opportunity for big plays from the RB position. Moats has the speed to provide it but Kubiak is infatuated with Brown and will not give him the opportunity.

Its gonna take a miracle to win 4 in a row without OD, Slaton, and with the worst starting interior OL in the league.

Defenses are gonna get a lot more focused on AJ. We'll find out if Jacoby, Walter, Anderson, and maybe one of the TEs can pick up the slack.

They have as much of a chance of making the playoffs as Tracy seeing the court again in a Rockets uni.
