Who do we cheer for? I'm confused
You don't. You hope they beat each other up real good and then get served when they play us.
Colts....I still hate the Jags.
I'm with the 'hope they beat each other up' movement..
Didn't realize if the Jags win Sunday that they take a ½ game lead in the division. < how does that happen?
Interesting articles they've written at their official website. They've got the Texans on their minds too.
"At 4-2, the Jaguars would claim a half-game lead in the AFC South title race with a win over the 4-1 Colts. Right behind the Jaguars are the 3-3 Texans, who are idle this week and will host the Jaguars the following week.
Critical games? You bet they are. This is a two-game stretch of schedule that could produce two extremes: With wins in Indianapolis and Houston, the Jaguars could cruise into their bye week with the AFC South firmly in their control. Two losses, of course, would bury the Jaguars' division title hopes and would strike a major blow to the team's wild-card playoff hopes."
I think the Colts win this game by at least 10 points.
couldn't have said it better myself.
I think the Colts will win by a large margin, but this season has been so strange who knows what will happen. However I hope the Jags win as Peyton is one of my most despised players in the game.
The Colts are 4-1 and the Jags are 4-2. I've gotta root for the Jags to win here. The best thing to happen here would be the Jags win and then get kicked around by the Texans next week. Then, you've got Texans 4-3, Jags 5-3, and Colts 4-3 or 5-2(depends on week 8). Besides, the Colts are the favorite in this division.
i think that i like vinny's logic on this one. i'll be hoping for a jags win this sunday.
evidently my orginal post is out there somewhere floating in cyber space, but here is the jest- http://www.jaguars.com/story/3969.asp
this may not be the best game of the weekend (Pats/Jets) but it should mean the most with both teams divisional foes. Interesting mix of views seems some just hate the Jags others want parity in the Texans division (excluding the Texans of course). I see the Colts making a statement, and I don't think its going to help the Jags beat Houston the following week either. Therefore GO COLTS. Next week the Texans beat the Jags & we're in 2nd place in the division and in playoff contention.
I would say, root for the Colts. We all know the Colts will win this division. So why not let them beat the Jags so they have another division loss. The Jags are our competition for a wild card. Lets hope they lose every game.
This is a no brainer. You cheer for the Colts because they are the best team in the Division and will win the Division. Meanwhile, hang a loss on the Jags and they fall to 4-3 coming into Battle Red Day and if we beat them, we will climb over them in the standings. Bottom line if the Jags lose to the Colts and Texans in consecutive weeks, we'll be alone in 2nd place in the division at 4-3 after Week 8 and right in the middle of the wild card race. Root for the Jags tomorrow and you are rooting for two teams to be ahead of you after Week 8 instead of one.
If we were playing for second place that would make sense. We are playing for first place in the division after week 10 though. If Jags beat Indy, division leaders would be one game ahead of us. Then the Jags come to Houston and lose to us, then they go into a bye week. We play Denver the week after the Jags. Denver is a tough game for us to win, especially in their house. But stretch your imaginiation and say we win that one. That puts us tied with Jags but ahead of them due to tiebreaking head to head competition. THEN we play Indy who is only one game ahead, but we beat them, that puts us tied but once again in First place due to head to head competition.
Yeah I know, three wins in a row, especially against Denver AND Indy, and all that blah blah blah. But then again, who the heck plays for second place??
Realistically I don't think we have a shot at winning the division and every game the Jags and Titans lose helps our effort to rise in the AFC South standings.
If we finish second in the division this year, that would mean we are in the hunt for a wild card until the end and it would be a huge boost entering Year 4.
Sure, I'd love to win the division but I don't see that happening. The Colts are going to slip a few times along the line, maybe even to us once, but where they are sitting now I think 10-6 is the low end for them and 9-7 is probably the high end for us.
So...I'm rooting against the Hags today because I want to jump them in the standings sooner rather than later. Plus, if the Jags lose today, that's 2 division losses for them and it gives us a chance to go three games up in the division loss column on them with a win on Battle Red Day. Carpe Diem. Get up on them as much as you can so we've still got cushion over them when we go in there for what will be a tough tough Week 16 matchup.
yeah, right now, i'm aiming for the 6th wildcard spot. If Tennesee loses today and Jacksonville loses today, that puts us in a good position going into next week. Heres some games to watch that have some impact on the texans this week:
Philly (5-0) @ Cleveland (3-3)
Tennessee (2-4) @ Minnesota (4-1)
Jacksonville (4-2) @ Indy (4-1)
Buffalo (1-4) @ Baltimore (3-2)
San Diego (3-3) @ Carolina (1-4)
New Orleans (2-4) @ Oakland (2-4)
Here's how I see the wild card standings looking after this week in the AFC
San Diego (4-3)
Here is next weeks schedule with projected new records
Baltimore (4-3) @ Philly (6-0)
Jacksonville (4-3) @ Houston (3-3)
Cincinnati (1-5) @ Tennessee (2-5)
Oakland (3-4) @ San Diego (4-3)
Projected wildcard standings coming out of next week
San Diego (4-4)
Each team will get to control their own destiny down the stretch
Isnt it a little too early to be looking at Wildcard spots???
I am a Peyton Manning fan so I am rooting for the Colts, but, like Vinny said, I would much rather face the Jags after a win...
In other years, yes. This year seems different however. There are a bunch of really good teams and a bunch of really bad teams. But why am i sitting here explaining my reasoning to you? you contradict everything
Awwwwwww .. to be 16 again, and be an absolute expert on EVERYTHING.
Aside from 88 ...most everyone else goes thru a learning process.
I dont contradict that...
One thing I can see that we can do against the Jags is use Billy Miller and/or Mark Bruener on seam routes...
