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.
