    We just need to keep our composure and we will get the 1st but the ravens jets and niners are really gonna try to give us a run for the 1st overall but i honestly believe we suck so much more than any other team in the nfl no way we blow this one great thing we got going for our franchse.:texflag:

    We dodged a bullet tonight, but managed to pull a 4th quarter collapse
    that produced an OT loss and we retained our lead for #1.
    I dunno..... all but one of our last 5 games are with teams also in the
    #1 hunt, whereas GB has 2 games with the Bears and a game with Seattle
    in their last 5. I don't think we get #1, but #2 overall wouldn't be too shabby.

    Out of the remaining games:

    Green Bay could beat Detroit and Baltimore

    San Fran could beat Arizona, St. Louis, and Houston

    NY Jets could beat Miami and Buffalo

    That would take care of all the teams that are 2-9 right now. I really don't see Houston winning any of the 5 remaining games except for possibly Arizona and maybe Jacksonville now that Leftwiich is out. I think we have the best shot at the #1 pick. At the very least we will be in the top 5.

    How do you think we will lose to the 49ers? They have the worst offense and defense in the league and we could be playing to not have the worst record in the league. I can't see us losing that one, and I can easily see us beating Baltimore, Tennessee, Arizona, Jacksonville, and San Francisco and finishing 6-10.

    Because we are playing in San Fran.

    This team finds too many ways to lose to go 5-0 down the stretch.

    I also don't expect them to go 5-0 but all of these games are very winnable and if we catch some kind of hot streak we could win all 5, but I expect them to win at least 3 of them.

    I think they COULD win 3 of the 5, but to expect any 1-10 team to win 3 out of 5 is unrealistic IMO.

    It looks like Green Bay could take it from us. Good thing we have a one game lead.

    4 out of our next 5 games are against 2 or 3 win teams.
