    If you could take a 9-7 record right now for this year, would you do it and take your chances on the playoffs? Or do you think the team can exceed 9-7 still?

    I voted no because 9-7 keeps the status quo going.

    We either win 10+ games and make playoffs

    or

    shlart the panties and lose majority of rest of games so we can rebuild......again.........even though nothing was ever "built".....:gun: :kubepalm:

    one or the other...i want playoffs or change...not the same shit again next year

    You think this team can go 5-4 the rest of the way with that schedule? I don't think so because they play too many teams with balls. This team is castrated thanks to Kubina.

    If they go 9-7, Kubiak better be gone or they are going to lose alot of fans. that will be proof-positive that our owner doesn't make winning in the playoffs a top priority.

    No - we win at least 10. Our chances of winning 6 more? Not real good, I'd say. No more settlin' - time to man up and win.

    if 9-7 gets us into the playoffs so be it I'd be happy with that but we need to start getting into the playoffs and get on a hot streak.

    But yah unless there is a massive AFC crash 9-7 we'll be at home sucking tits again..

    I highly doubt we get to 9-7.

    At this point I am thinking draft position.

    Something about throwing the baby out with the bath water...... I'm not with that.

    11-5 if not better. There is still a lot of football to be played.

    9-7 will not prove anything, and if it's just enough to save Kubiak's job i am against it. Either make playoffs and make real strides as an organization, or lose your job. That's the way i see it.

    You wouldn't see 9-7 against this schedule as any better than 9-7 against last year's schedule?

    I say 10 wins or more with a shot at the playoffs (assuming we don't win the division, which is very doubtful IMO), or go to the other extreme with
    no more wins (that's right: 4-12) to maximize our Draft position.

    I voted no. I want more than 9 wins. I dont want to chance the playoffs this year. If we dont get our 9 wins then all the more reason to kick Kubes to the curb.

    Not at all. Strength of schedule was heavily inflated by playing the Colts twice and outside of that, the schedule hasn't panned out the way we thought it would exactly.

    Even if it did, if you're a real playoff team, you do whatever it takes to get in, whether it beating on bad teams all season or beating the best of the best. So 9-7 this season means nothing more to me then last year's 9-7. To me, it just says "same sh*t, different day".

    Kubiak does absolutely nothing to inspire the team out of the gate in the first half when most games end up being won or lost, and that is inexcusable. Maybe he'll learn that these "scripted plays" are not effective in doing anything except allowing the offense to play from behind for the rest of the game. The defense actually fought hard under the circumstances, yet the offense did nothing to help them.

    I voted no because 9-7 will not get us in the playoffs. If it could, I would be happy with it. Other than that I wouldn't be happy with anything less than 11-5.
    As far as "taking 9-7". Well I would take it because however the season plays out is just the way it is. I'm not going to stop being a fan, I will just be a little bit grumpier! :texflag:

    This team would be both lucky and unlucky to go 9-7 this year. Lucky because 9-7 appears to be over-achieving for such a mediocre team, and unlucky because it would be just good enough to keep Kubiak.
