You know, I agree that we no-huddle all game, or pull some west-coast O shit.

If we keep then off-balance, it improves our chances dramatically.

Run,run, pass won't get it done. 

I personally hope Rice and MacGahee are out.  The last thing we need are more of those draws or underneath passes that rack up 50 yards a pop.

To clinch a wild card, we only have to win one of the last three, due to conference record.

One game loss is the difference between #2 and #6 seed.... that's quite a tight-rope

If we only win one more, that woudl add two more conference losses.  Winning one and losing two conference gaems would stil clinch us a WC?  If true, that suprises me.

Yeah I saw ESPN's bottom line this morning say we clinch a playoff spot with a win or a Dolphins AND Jets loss, or something like that.

I know it sounds crazy to say FWP will get 130, but I just think this game will be crazy.  I feel he breaks it big in this one, just a feeling,  That said I still may start Cadillac in FF.

Actally better than that.  With a win, we clinch not only the division, but also a first round bye.  Clinch playoff spot when 2 of Phins, Jets, and Pats lose another game.

Actually could see 5 of 6 AFC playoff spots clinched this weekend.  Don't want to, cause it would require a Ratties win, and its highly unlikely as I think the AFCE trio will all be favored and 2 of them would have to lose, but in that scenario Denver (with win or SD loss), Balty, Pit, Tenn, Indy (with win against Detroit - lock) all clinch.  Leaves the AFCE scrambling for one spot.

Really don't want to go into last game needing a win for playoffs, even if it is the Brownies. End this crap this weekend.  Not to mention if we can help knock the Ratties out, I'm all for it.  They're more dangrous than anyone in the AFCE.

I thought i read we could have clinched a spot last weekend with a win against dallas with MIA and NE Losses If i recall.  So wouldnt that put our magic number down to one right?  just win and your in?

I have a terrible feeling about this one.  I am never confident about a Ravens game and less so this one.  Until the 2nd half of the 'Skins game the Ravens have been protecting the ball well.  The Steelers have had their problems.  I think, with these two defenses, it comes down to points off turnovers.  The Steelers haven't been converting those opportunities and the Ravens have.

I hate to say it, but I think the Steelers are looking at a Wild Card and a long road in the playoffs.

AMEN!!!

Let's have a Merry Christmas with another division title and a restful final two games.  Seriously, as ridiculous as it sounds, I'll have a much more relaxing holiday if we just win this game Sunday.

How sad is that?

It's the curse of true fans everywhere.  It gets under our skin.

But you know, a minister is supposed to stay, at least to some degree, above the "fray" of some of this.  I just lean a little towards the worldly side, in spite of my profession.

Meh, fire me.  God has known about my weaknesses for a while now, so I trust that He will keep working in spite of them.  Although I am thinking about joining an ecumenical Franciscan order to help me deal with my worldliness!

Wonder if I can get a black n gold habit?  Grin
