    It's a bit too early for us to be considered for the playoff yet, IMHO. I don't think we have done what we needed to do up to this point in the season. If we can put together a little run, I may start to get my hopes up.

    It wouldn't surprise me. Didn't the Lions start off 7-1 a few years ago, and close out the second half 1-7?

    Its not a prediction so much as how the playoffs would look if tiebreakers didn't exist. The guy is just going based on straight records but ignoring tie breakers (Thats why Pitt is the division champ and Houston is the wildcard)

    The only "picks" are houston over NYJ and Pitt over Cinci

    I think he's well aware of the tiebreakers and is just doing it based off how he thinks it will be at the moment by the way teams have been playing at that week and he mentions factoring in the remaining schedule to come up with his opinion...

    That's why I think he has us over the Jets cuz we won 2 in a row and have the Bills next.
    There is no reason to have the Packers in there by record other than he thinks they will make it and likes their schedule at the moment.

    I dont get it. Green Bay has a 4-2 record, which is the same record as all the teams currently in the hunt for the NFC Wild Card.

    Dallas, Philly, GB, Atlanta, all have 4-2 records

    We'll have to beat a great team regardless if we're gonna be winning playoff games...

    ..but am I the only one who'd rather be in the Broncos/Bengals/Patriots pool rather than the Steelers/Colts pool??

    We are a lot of fun to watch. Unless you really want us to win and then sometimes it's more stressful than fun.

    LOL, that's when Kitna predicted a 10 win season. They started 6-2, but then lost their next 6 games. I forgot about that, funny stuff. He had the same prediction the very next season. The fool didn't learn his lesson. :lol:

    No, you're not I am but I just do not think Indy will have a huge melt down this season.

    Call me a softy if you want but I sat and stared at that bracket for a good 3 minutes just basking in the visual stimuli placed before me.

    Never seen something so beautiful and it's only a dream right now.

    this guy has hated on us & regularly called us the most boring team in the league the last few years (and often ignores us in his huge columns). the last few weeks he's been watching us a bit more though:
