I woke up at 3am to watch this debacle before work this Monday morning. I turned it off at the end of the 3rd quarter to catch a few extra winks before work started. This was atrocious football. I don't know about any of you but when Eli threw that first pick I had that feeling like it was just going to be one of those games, you know the ones where we just stank it up all over the field. Very similar to the game last year against the Redskins in week 15. ( I chose to snowboard for the last time I could, before being stationed in Okinawa, a place with no snow instead of watching that game, which in my mind was an easy W).
Now on to the playoff scenario. We can win the division still, but obviously we are going to need either Washington or Dallas to lose next week and then whoever lost that game to win in week 17. We will need to win both games in this scenario. Regardless we will need to win both remaining games to have a chance at the division. I just want to get in the dance, because as we all know that's all you need to do, to have a shot at winning the Super Bowl.
We still control our destiny. After checking conference records we have all the tiebreakers we need over teams that can reach the 10 win plateau. Minnesota and Chicago are the only teams who can reach 10 wins that aren't in our division. They both have 5 conference losses. (I'm penciling Seattle in for this scenario as there are 2 WC spots). If Dallas or Washington get 10 wins they win the division based on division record. However one of those teams will finish with only 9 wins unless for some reason they tie in the season finale.
SO ALL WE NEED TO DO IS WIN 2 GAMES!!! Just like last season. Pick your heads up, and let's go win the biggest game of the year next week in Baltimore. Steve Mariucci said on NFL network he thought we were the best team in the NFC. We play like shit when others say we are the best. We needed a good old fashioned whooping. We needed to get our back up against the wall. NOW IT"S TIME TO MAN UP AND PLAY LIKE THE WORLD CHAMPS!!!
