Playoffs

I would like to open this by stating that I believe we can and will make the playoffs.  Now, look at our schedule.

@Toronto, San Francisco, @KC, @ NY Jets.

Not too bad, right?  Well, I might be wrong.  Whether we play down to them or they play up to us, we cannot put away the bad teams and we make it too close.  Now a win is a win, and I will take a 2 point win just as easily as I would take a 20 point win, but one mistake could change the game or even the whole season.  4 of our 7 wins have been by 7 or less.  One pick-six, one big defensive meltdown, one play in each of those games and we could easily be 3-9.  Completely out of the playoff race.  Wondering who is going to the Draft this year and who we will take.  And honestly, that is where I expected us to be coming into the season.  But we suprised.  I do like that, but four little mistakes and we could be in such a different position.  The four teams that we beat by 7 or less points?  The Chargers, Raiders, Seahawks, and Rams.  Not exactly powerhouses. 

But two of our losses have been really close.  A fluke touchdown that should have at least been knocked down and a last second QB sneak by Schaub.  We could be 9-3 as easily as we could be 3-9.  That just shows we aren't a lock to make anything.  We could easily make it, but we could easily not make it.  We could almost be locked in the playoffs.  But we could be a lock for a top 10 pick.  Yes, I hope we make it.  Yes, I think we can make it.  But nothing is for sure.
