One week left of the NFL regular season. Here's a look at the playoff picture. All divisions in the AFC are settled:
AFC East: Patriots AFC North: Bengals AFC South: Colts* AFC West: Chargers*
Still no wildcards have been clinched in the AFC, still very wide open with one week left. Broncos, Jets, Ravens, Texans, Steelers, Dolphins, and Jaguars are all still in the race. Broncos and Jets would be in the if the regular season ended today. Kige probably was crying on December 25 as his Titans got knocked out.
NFC East: Eagles (haven't clinched it yet, but are in playoffs) NFC North: Vikings NFC South: Saints NFC West: Cardinals
Packers and Cowboys make up the wildcards, but the Cowboys can still steal the NFC East from the Eagles and put Philly in the wildcard spot. But man did Dink's Giants throw the playoffs away! Your last game at Giants Stadium you get beat 41-9! That has to really hurt!
And how bout those pathetic performances out of the Colts and Saints! Colts decide to rest Peyton Manning and lose a game, while the Saints lose to the Bucs!?!?!? Crazy week, and my Chiefs yet again lost a close game
With the Vikings loss tonight, the Eagles control their own fate for a first round bye. With the way the Saints and Vikes are struggling, I think we will go to the Super Bowl if we can beat Dallas and secure that bye on Sunday. Easier said than done though.
And it isn't the Broncos. It's the Ravens who are in along with the Jets right now in the AFC. No one seems to want to go to the playoffs in the AFC.
It is very likely that the 5-0 Giants and 6-0 Broncos will both miss the playoffs. Crazy season.
We'll see what happens. But I say thank you Eagles for beating Denver!!!!
Giants will not make the playoffs. Can anyone say Karma for what Antonio Pierce said about my Raiders? The Giants played a scrimmage in the Meadowlands. And a Pac-10 QB as well as RB owned that Giants Defense!!!
Don't say the Eagles are going to make the Super Bowl yet Philly boy! The Packers have been playing solid lately, and the Cardinals have been playing pretty good lately. I don't get what's happened to the Vikes and the Saints. Looks like another sign that Favre needs to retire for good!
I just hope I don't see the Chargers represent the AFC in the Super Bowl. I'm so fucking sick of the Bolts and I've about had it. I'd rather see the Raiders win the AFC West next year than see the Chargers win it for a fifth straight year! They are the team I will be rooting fully against in the playoffs!
I think that the Texans will upset the Pats next week and finally make the playoffs. And the Ravens will get the second Wild Card. Who knows, this NFL season has been crazy.
I said I think we'll go to the Super Bowl if we beat Dallas on Sunday and get the other bye. The Packers have a hit or miss defense and while Rodgers has been great, he gets hit more than Tiger by Elin Woods.
And sorry Scottie, but I think this may be the year the Chargers finally break through and win the Super Bowl. Indianapolis might have bitten off more than they could chew not going for the win last week. The city is in rage! The Saints and Vikings have fallen apart too. I also don't think the Texans will make it. The Jets probably won't lose to the Bengals considering they will rest their players and not show a full hand since they'll probably play them next week in the playoffs too. I hope Roller's Raiders beat Baltimore so Houston has a chance. Unlikely though.
And yeah, the Giants are dead. I'm waiting for Denver to be polished off too. Would be funny to see a 5-0 and 6-0 team miss the playoffs.
I will puke if I have to see the Chargers, Patriots, or Cowgirls win the Super Bowl or even make the Super Bowl, I agree Roller. As for the Broncos' chances, I would love to beat them and eliminate them for good, but do you guys know the last time we won in Denver? It was 2000, the final year of old Mile High Stadium, meaning we've never won in Invesco. This year's Chiefs have been as bad as it gets, I simply don't know how we are going to beat the Donks.
I actually think Dallas will beat Philly next week, but I'll be rooting for the Eagles I guess. I don't know how the Cowgirls won in Philly, doesn't make any sense to me. Dallas of course will lose their first playoff game, whoever it's against, wherever it's played, they're going to lose. I want to see Houston make the playoffs though, since they've never made it. So I guess I'm a Texans fan next week. Go Texans!
I'm selling everything with all the fans saying the Chargers will do it. I need to SEE it to believe it. They went 14-2 and we all know those Patriots came back. I wasn't really rooting for either team but it was funny to hear those bandwagon Charger fans suck it.
Cowboy fans have the Raiders to thank for keeping them alive in the NFC East race.
Does Kige hate Houston since they're a division rival?
Still... that play-calling by Andy Reid for one game makes the difference since the NFC East title will be decided on Sunday. I'll be cheering for ya though. Even though DeSean Jackson Sucks (off the field)....
What the Cowboys should be thankful for is that they managed to escape my Chiefs earlier this year. Looking back at that game still makes me want to stab a knife through my head. We should have won that game! Fuck the Cowgirls!
I find Andy Reid to be overrated and I'm surprised he's still the Eagles coach when he's made it to five NFC Championships and has only won one of them, and Eagle fans ask for way too much. I guess Whale loves Reid, but it seems like there are a lot of people in Philly who still hate Reid and want him out if they can't have any playoff success.
Most people hate Reid and McNabb, but the truth is, not many player/coach combos have had the success they have. They do some strange things with the clock (i.e. the 4th quarter lack of hussle in the Super Bowl), but Reid has made winners out of many different players. He can be my coach for life. Unless you give me Bill Parcells or Belichick, I'll stick with Reid!
2001- Eagles @ Rams (weren't going to win that one) 2002- Bucs @ Eagles (as it turned out the Bucs destroyed everyone w/ their defense) 2003- Panthers @ Eagles (they almost beat the Pats in the Super Bowl, but probably the worst NFC championship loss by only scoring 3 points) 2004- Falcons @ Eagles (our one and only win) 2008- Eagles @ Cardinals (didn't show up in the first half, great comeback in the 2nd, but wasn't enough)
They should be at least 2-3 in these games. Possibly 3-2.
TO was the best Eagle in that Super Bowl. If he hadn't been a step slow because of the injury he would have broken a few for TDs. He was that good that day. He had a point ripping McNabb about that. With that said TO was a pain the next year and needed to go, but Donovan had some thin skin with that. I don't hate TO. It's too bad it didn't work out long term, because our offense was the best it ever was with him at WR.
