    lol I love how last week everyone is talking about our draft pick and "start Tarvaris" and "pick Jarrett" and as soon as we beat the lions everyone thinks we're a super bowl contender.
    At this point, I'm just watching the games for fun. Nothing to lose really.. no big expectations for this year. Let's just enjoy the last few games of the season and MAYBE we can get a wild card bid. Sometimes we get so wrapped up in winning that we forget that it's fun to watch the games.
    i couldnt agree more.. i mean, it was just the lions.. and we do have an easy schedule ahead (thats what we thought about november though..)

    we arent SB contendors, lets be honest. but we might be just enough of a sleeper pick to back into the playoffs and play for an extra week.

    watch for fun, and if we make it into the playoffs, cool, we get a bonus game
    i m better than you, so just give up...

    Re: Jerome Bettis' Sleeper Team From NFC

    Looking at the playoff picture http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=2668613, if we win and atlanta loses next week, we get a spot, due to our good NFC record. We're closer than I thought. That being said, I would rather us get better and miss the playoffs than stay as we are and make them. Just me.....

    Re: Jerome Bettis' Sleeper Team From NFC

    wether we make the playoffs or not..

    I am happy with the way the D has turned out

    I am happy with the way our RB's have turned out

    I am happy with the O & D lines

    I am happy with coaching

    and if we make the playoffs i'll be SOOOO happy when we beat the bears to play in the championship!!

    Re: Jerome Bettis' Sleeper Team From NFC

    As it stands right now, I believe we are 4th in the NFC Wild Card race so our destiny is still within our grasp.

    Giants, Eagles & Falcons are all 7-6 & we are tied with the Panthers @ 6-7, but we beat the Panthers.

    The Giants still play the Eagles, Saints & Redskins.

    The Eagles still play the Giants, Cowboys & Falcons.

    The Falcons still play the Panthers, Eagles & Cowboys

    The Panthers still play the Steelers, Falcons & saints

    With many of those teams playing each other plus some tough teams, it gives us a good chance to finish better than them if we win out.

    The Cowboys have been playing good ball lately & the Saints are leading their division 9-4.

    That was my line, you beat me to it.

    When the season started, I didn't imagine playing ourselves out of a losing hole.
    With that easy schedule, I didn't expect to be below .500 for more than maybe one week.

    Playoffs?

    Just to finish above .500 will be good.

    Jerome had to pick someone. Not a bad pick consedering we have a Defense.
    We have to keep the better teams from scoring first so Brad can play with a lead.

    While a Super Bowl ring is nice, it doesn't necessarily mean you're a great QB, nor does it mean if you haven't got one you stink.

    Fran Tarkenton is one good example.

    What if the Bears won the Super bowl this year? Would you want Grossman as our QB just because he has a ring?

    I'm generalizing here, not saying Brad is a great or lousy QB, just that a ring doesn't necessarily mean greatness or still great today.

    Bloedsoe has a ring & I wouldn't want him for our QB anymore than a lot of fans here would.

    He got it riding the pine behind Brady, but he did get one you are correct.
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.
