"6 more games" or "Are we really the worst 7-3 team?"


Raiders Giants Chargers Saints Skins Eagles

That's what's left folks. 4-2 in this stretch gets us in the playoffs, and 3-3 could also, if chips fall correctly.  Definitly do-able.  I'm feeling now like we are going to beat the Saints, kind of like we were the first to beat the colts a couple years ago.  We should beat the Raiders, and the boys better have some bad blood built up for when we see the skins again.

So, the question becomes (based on the non-scientific assumption above) Can we beat either the Chargers, Giants, or Eagles?  At this point, the Chargers are surging.  And, since they are in the AFC, I don't mind losing that game.  So then basically, we need to win 2 out of 3 of the remaining division games.  I think this can be done.

For 7-3 teams, the Bengals, Chargers, Cards and Pats are all ranked ahead of us (I'm unfortunately using ESPN).  What do you all think of this?

The Bengals just lost to the Raiders, so if we beat them tomorrow, we have to leap frog the Bengals, right?

A head to head with the Chargers will answer that question.  

The Cardinals, in my opinion are not better than us, especially w/o Warner.  

The Pats may, in fact, be better than us right now.  Hopefully that will change come SB time.

 

I guess the questions I pose then are the following:

A) Can we go 4-2 down the tough stretch ahead?

B) can we go at least 2-1 for our remaining divisional games, leaving us 4-2 or 5-1 in the division this year?

C) Where do you see us among the 7-3 teams?

Bonus) Did anyone, at the beginning of the season, predict that we'd be in a spot where the media is saying that our defense looks like Super Bowl quality, while our offense can only score once per game?   Aren't we supposed to be a potent offense with a Three Headed Monster in the backfield, a near top tier QB, and some young and promising receivers?  Aren't our corners supposed to liabilities?

Did I miss something?  Did I fall asleep?
