The only thing fustrating about this win is the fact that we could very easily be 4-2 right now and be right in the thick of the playoff hunt. We do make costly mistakes but we aren't THAT bad like #1 pick in the draft bad.
I second that. We had the Saints and the Rams on the ropes. And to be honest, we had the Eagles on the ropes until Ahmad Caroll decided to "take over" the game. I think we should be 3-3 AT WORST and realistically fighting for a playoff spot. We still have a playoff chance, but its gonna be so much harder now. We cant throw away another game the rest of the year. I'd say the Cardinals will be an easy win. Their defense worries me a little because it is a big play defense. Either you will get a big play vs it or they will make a big play against you(sack,interception). If we have a good gameplan and prepare well, we should rip the cardinals apart. Its pretty obvious to me that Leinart can throw the passes from 5 - 15 yards but that he cant throw the ball down the field. He is just too one dimensional, kind of like Rick Mirer. He will strugle the rest of the season since teams can now study him on film.
We could win this if we play well, but probably a loss. If we want to make the playoffs, this is one that we really need to win. Big divisional game.
If Hasselbeck is hurt its an easy win, if he is healthy i think it will be a close game that we have a shot to win. But great teams win close games and the Seahawks are great, and we are not great.
Home divisional game, if we are on a hot streak, we have a good shot
I hate the Bears so much but to keep this one close we will have to be healthy, the team will have to be playing well together, eliminate the mental mistakes(fumbles by Green). Late December however. And think about this. We might be in playoff contention, and the bears will probably have home field advantage wrapped up. This is a game we can steal if the Bears are resting some starters.
I say we will finish up 9-7 and just miss a playoff chance. There are a whole lot of competitive teams in the NFC. We will need a whole lot of help. Many teams ahead of us will have to take a dive. Alot of 4 and 5 win teams in our conference. I think it will take 10-6 to make the playoffs in our conference. If we can get ahead of the Vikings and win 10 games, we will be in the playoffs. That means we have to finish up the year 8-2.
Yes, i am pathetically optimistic. No comments needed.
