    With this patch-work secondary I don't think so.

    We can talk playoffs next year.

    This team looks totally different with AJ on the field. Who knows what can happen.

    I'd feel a lot better if AJ would have gotten two big one instead of one. But still, we are a better team with him in the line up.

    Here is all I am going to say. The division leaders are 1. NE, 2. Indy, 3. Pitt, 4. SD. The WC right now are 5. Jags, 6. Tacks(have yet to play today). Brown, Texans, Bmore, Broncos, KC, and Buffalo are chasing.

    Now, of those teams Texans play: Indy, Jags, Tacks, Browns, and Broncos. All of these will be tough games and will be against teams competing for playoff spots in the AFC with us. The other team we play is TB who happens to be leading the NFCC south, so they too will be a tough opponent.

    I want to take a line from former Stro manager Phil Garner: "Before we start thinking playoffs, we need to be over .500."

    We didn't gain any ground today unless the Titans lose on Monday Night guys. The Colts and Jaguars won their games today. That's what happens when you go down in a good division early.

    Don't really think playoffs is possible this year. A winning record this season would be nice, though.

    We're not going to catch the Colts, but their win over KC helps our cause. We need SD to win the west since they beat us.

    Atleast after 10 games, there's still hope. Can't say that about last season or any previous year.

    All three division games we lost, we were without our best offensive weapon. Two of those games were very close. I just want to see how we fare with AJ on the field. Anything can happen.

    Considering that some of our future opponents have hit the injury bug, this can only play to our advantage. I don't wish injury upon any opponent, but the Texans have had their fair share up to now. No reason why we can't have a winning record for the last 6 weeks of the year and finish above .500 for the first time.

    9-7 won't get us into the playoffs but 10-6 would. What a miraculous ending that would be.

    Just happy to be playing games after Thanksgiving that potentially could matter. Playoffs are not likely, but at least not a joke as before.

    Lets not start the "playoff" thread please......everytime we do that all hell breaks loose.

    It's almost as bad as the, "hey, we're pretty injury free right now" thread.

    Let's just let the next couple of weeks play out.

    10-6 will get it done this year. It's possible.

    Must wins would have to be the Browns, Titans, and Jags. With that we'd still be looking for the Titans and Jags to lose a few more.

    We'd still probably need to win 1-2 more and I'm guessing Tampa and/or Denver.

    Impossible? no
    Likely? not so much
    But I'll be rooting for it!
