I think we are a play off team still. If you look at the AFC right now it's really wide open. Pretty much everyone is 3-3 except Baltimore and Houston and Baltimore hasn't looked too special. All we need to do is hang in there and we can get in. I wouldn't bet the house on a Superbowl but you never know what can transpire after you're in the play offs. Things can just go your way.
As far is NE goes, a win would be awesome. There really is no better time to get one than now after they really dropped the ball up in Seattle this sunday.
They're probably gonna' be pretty PO'ed though.
We're going to have a hard time stopping their run but I think at least one of their star running backs is going to be out (Bolden?).
Our best chance to win this game, and I can't believe i'm saying this, is to just have Sanchez go out there and sling it. Their secondary is God awful.
They keep getting big leads on teams which forces them to start throwing deep and they just end up getting them all day to get back in the game.
We need to go out in the 1st quarter like we're down by 20 and just start throwing the ball deep and moving up the field. Their defensive backs are just horrible.
So - given the circumstances of this crazy year - the Jets might certainly find a way to back into that 6th spot. The Pats may be the 'best' team on this list and even they aren't playing dominating football.
If Jets can beat the Bills and Fins again - and do away with S.D. later in the season - they'll have a good chance of having put all three of those teams in their rear-view mirror. Then it just comes down to being better than the other team vying for the #6 spot. Seahawks went in at 7-9 two years ago and this year might be the same - some weak team making the playoffs.
It would hardly be something to celebrate - I mean, real 'playoff' teams should be able to go on the road and win big games. But - hey - for emotional/enjoyment perspective I'd be thrilled to see the Jets do it.
