    Each and everyone said that the "Back Into the Playoffs" garbage only means something to the press and the fans.
    Players don't give a squat how they get in.
    They only want to get there.
    I hate the term period & to me it holds no credibility. You do your job on the field, win enough games & you're in.

    The order you win them in IMO doesn't matter. The teams don't pick their schedules. Some teams play less worthy opponents late in their schedule, some play them earlier.

    I believe the Giants clinched a playoff spot/divisional title on a week in which they lost. It would be stupid to consider that "backing in"

    If we beat the Giants the game before the playoffs I am sure we will have enough motivation and momentum going into the playoffs.

    and if we get in with a bears loss....who gives a fuck we won more games so there for we deserve it....

    and if we dont get in....well fuck

    Win and you are win. Therefore, we cannot back into the playoffs.
    We're bringing purple back.

    I dont know anyone that would turn down a raise that they "backed" into.

    If you listen to JA's 12/24/08 interview, he also mentions that regardless of how you get in, during the season you won enough games to be there.

    I've always believed that. The order of the schedule & your wins & loses shouldn't matter. What matters is you won enough of your games to earn the title or wildcard spot.

    If the weeks we played the Giants & Cardinals were swapped & we had lost to the Giants that week, won the Cardinals game in week 17 & the Bears lost in week 17, does that really change things?
    Does it matter in terms of getting into the playoffs? Definitely not. However, the other factor, as you know, is momentum going into the playoffs. That is why the Giants are playing to win on Sunday. That is why going into the playoffs after two losses to playoff-bound teams is not a good thing.
    +1 definitely.
    It's not that I think we really have to be 10-6 instead of 9-7, but I want that momentum.
