    We better go at least 4-2 with some of those schedules. If we go 3-3, I'd say we have about a 20% chance to make the playoffs. Our schedule is definitely the toughest. Thank god we have 4 out of 6 at home.

    If we want to win the division, we better hope the Titans continue to go undefeated. If they lose 1, they will rest their starters the 15th game against the Steelers with the division and the #1 seed already being wrapped up.

    I know that we control our destiny and we can only blame ourselves if we dont get in the tournament. But still, we should root for our playoff spot competitors to lose. With that in mind, GO BROWNS tonite! Beat the Bills

    With SD @ 4-6, I am assuming Den will win the AFC West. The Broncos dont factor into the Wildcard picture then. Since the Browns, Jags & SD are all 4-6, 2 games behind in the Wildcard, I am not looking at their schedules yet.

    You gotta think the Colts will be a Wildcard. With Lions & Bengals at home -- 2 definite wins. @ SD with their horrible passing defense & @ Browns (don't see them beating Peyton) ---- 2 probable wins. @ Jags will be a tough game even if the Jags are out of the picture b/c Del Rio will always want to win against the Colts. Titans, the last game...... unless the Titans are undefeated (possible), they will play the 2nd stringers, so win for the Colts.

    The AFC East teams play a lot of NFC West teams. This sucks since the NFC West teams, minus the Cardinals, are terrible. You gotta assume that all of those NFC West teams will lose when they travel to the AFC East games. Needlessly to say I am going to be a Hawks, Rams, Cardinals, & 49ers fan in the upcoming weeks.

    Also, there are few easy games the AFC East teams play..... Pats @ Oak, Fins @ KC, & Bills @ KC.

    All in all, even though we have 4 out of 6 games at home and we are in control of our playoff destiny, the Ravens definitely have the toughest road to get into the 'tournament'. It starts this weekend... Must beat the SquEagles.

    Just a prediction:

    East: Jets
    North: Steelers
    South: Titans
    West: Broncos

    WC: Pats or Fins & Colts
    I don't see a WC slot coming out of the AFC North

    Ravens finish 9-7.

    This is probably most likely, especially with all of these injuries.

    However, with 4 out of 6 at home, I could see a 10-6 finish, but that still doesn't guarantee anything. The Clowns found that out last year.

    I still think it all comes down to winning the Division! Beat the Squeelers, we're in! Lose to the Squeelers, we're out!

    I'm still not giving the Squeelers two wins vs Cleveland & Cincy. They aren't exactly lighting it up and could very easily lose one of these games! Especially the last game vs. Cleveland, with probably Crennel & Savage's jobs on the line! If they can beat the Squeelers, that might be enough for them to keep their jobs!

    Also, The Squeelers are @ Tenn & NE, with Dallas coming to Squeeltown. They are definitely in a position to lose a bunch of these games!
    ... They shall mount up with wings as Eagles;

    Like I said, we better root for the Titans to stay undefeated by that 15th game against the Stillers. You know if they get beat beforehand, they are going to rest their starters the last 2 games with the #1 seed already wrapped up.

    I have taken (and am still taking) the approach of enjoying each game and not sweating playoffs. If it happens, then great. But no big deal if we don't get in, with the M*A*S*H unit we have.

    That being said...ahem...I agree that if we don't pick up 4 more wins then it's lights out. And I think we need at least 2 of those to be against AFC teams.

    This week is key. if the Ravens knock off a team that beat the Steelers, i think they will be in good shape the rest of the way to go at least 3 and 2. As long as they than beat the Steelers, they should win the divison on tiebreakers if they finish with the same record.
