    and since wins cost us a player for every win this year. Who can we sacrifice?

    You're just kidding? It was the first name to pop into MY mind.

    Within 0.5 seconds of thinking about which guy to choose.

    If we win our last two division games, we're a shoo-in. As far as players we could afford to lose at this point, just let them be on the PS. You never said they had to active....

    Ok lets look at the schedule

    Atlanta
    @Ciny
    Carolina
    @Indy
    Tennesse

    Even with Lineart I was expecting a win with the falcons but not any more. I hope they play terrible but we will most likely lose.
    @ cincy will be tough, however they almost got beat by the browns today...I guess we will have to see how things turn out. Luckily during these 2 weeks the titans play @buffalo and then vs the saints. I see them losing both games.
    I think we beat carolina and Indy
    If we get at least 2 wins the the last week wont matter we would have clinched.

    Go play with the playoff predictor to see what all can happen

    I wouldn't write off Carolina as a win until TJ shows he can deliver. Carolina, in spite of their record, has an offense that can put a lot points on the board. If our offense can't get clicking under Yates, it's possible that Carolina could come to town and embarrass us. No matter how good your D is, you have to score points to win games.

    As for the rest of the schedule, we should be beat Indy...but everything is more or less is limbo until we know what we really have in Yates; the training wheels need to come off and soon - or we're f#@ked.

    EDIT: Then again, according to the PO simulator - we can still get in at 9-7 as long as we beat Indy; I assume we would be one and done (We'd be playing Pitt at home in what I got).

    I have no doubt we'll be able to run the ball against Carolina. I knew we'd have trouble with the Jags.. we had trouble last time, at home. I know we're going to have trouble with the Falcons (#2 run defense) I know we're going to have problems with the Bengals (#3 run defense).

    But we're going to run the ball on Carolina, keep Cam & Steve Smith on the bench & give ourselves a chance to win in the 4th.

    Atlanta is the only game I think will be "difficult" even though it is at home.

    Tennessee don't want none of this.

    We will go 3-2. Loses the next two weeks against ATL and Cincy. We will beat Indy, Carolina, Tennessee. Remember guys foster went crazy against Tennessee last time in our 41-7 win. Seriously guy remember we beat the ****ing TITANS 41-7

    Obviously anyone picking out players to injure is demented, so nice going fellas. Also, sacrificing KJ wouldn't bring the Texans a win over Pearland High School.

    Haha, yes. Sorry, I'm numb here. Can't believe after 10 years of patronage, this is what it's come to.

    Still not convinced about Cincy, just watch them barely beat Cleveland, the same team the Texans put a beat down on...

    Our magic number is actually 3. Just about any combination of 3 wins from us or 3 losses from the Titans gives us the division. I'm thinking that the Titans lose the next 2 weeks @Buffalo and at home against the Saints. That would mean the best they could do is go 9-7. If our only win is against the Colts then we would be 5-0 in the division and we would clinch it that game if the Titans lose the next 2, or any 2 games the rest of the year.

    Call me crazy, but I think we'll have a decent chance to win next week at home against Atlanta. We haven't had a home game in 3 weeks so Reliant will be rocking. We'll have to find a way to become more balanced, but I'm hoping Kubiak pulls a rabbit out of his hat.

    I think (hope) Cincy is going to look like TampaBay when Cushing gets his mits on Dalton.

    We've just got to find a way to run against their #3 run defense.

    I know the vogue thing to do around here is hate on the Titans, but that's a veteran club. The Bills youth is what's been hurting them. Youth & injuries... we've seen it, lived it.

    They won't beat the Titans.

    New Orleans will beat them. Hopefully Jacksonville can eek one out, then us.
