They'll make the post-season for sure. They may even have the best point differential in the NFL at season's end. But they'll be gone in the first game of the playoffs. I'd put money on the Ravens next week.
NO GREAT TEAMS THIS YEAR.

Pats still have as good a shot as anybody in the NFL, especially since the road through the AFC is easier.

Hell, even as bummed out as I am with this team, with no replacement refs they are 5-1 and the "class" of the AFC.

The only thing that makes me nervous about Houston is Foster, and even then our D has been pretty good and consistent in stopping the run this year.

Johnson hasn't had an impact year by any means and one of their best D players (Cushing) might be out for a long time IIRC. Pittsburgh is aging and doesn't ground and pound the ball like they used to which is probably the reason they are pretty crappy right now. The only team that I'm worried about is the Ravens.

New York sent a pretty big message to the league yesterday. When the chips are on the table, they're the most complete team

I beat the guy I faced in fantasy this week by over 70 points. I almost feel bad.

If they get Suggs back in the next couple of weeks, they'll be fine. The bigger issue for them is losing Webb. With Webb all done, they got to Jimmy Smith as their starter. That's a pretty big drop off right there and far more impact than anything Lewis would offer on the field, despite his super nifty pregame dance they always show on TV.

Up until the GB game, they looked a lot better than they played? I dunno, losing Cushing is a huge loss for them, they look vastly different on D.

In terms of on field stuff, yes you are right, Webb is a far larger blow than Lewis. But my point was, a guy like that is still a big loss just because of how that team props him up to be this god-like player. We'll see.

That will give Lewis time to find his missing white suit.

Some guy on T & R suggested that the Patriots either bring Mangini back or hire Sexy Rexy when he gets fired from NY to help our secondary.

I am amazed they haven't brought in Ty Law as a coach as he's still in the area.

I get what you're saying. I just think that with his very obvious drop off in play (this year especially), his loss from an on the field perspective will be minimal, despite the media holding him up and acting like he's the same player he once was. He's not. He's still a great presence, but his on the field contributions are nowhere close to what they were.

The Dolphins, The Jets, Denver, Jacksonville and Tennessee... A couple of .500 hopefuls and a couple of boners.

I knew Green Bay was going to pound 'em and they did. If you don't play against contending teams, how do you figure you're a contending team? Most clubs are going to put up decent records against others who are .500 and under.

Although, if Houston comes in and plays a competitive game against Baltimore, I'll change my tune a bit.

i've followed the "quality standings"on this site for years. It's not perfect, but it does tell an interesting tale.

6 pass atempts for the jets only one route under the first down coverd by a linebacker that was even close to being coverd.

Touchdown in 3 2 1 Vegas is so stupid how do you give a team with the worst secondary in the history of football a chance for a blowout win I got the Jets in a close one becuase the Patriots do not know how to stop the worst QB in the league let alone the 4th worst in sanchez.
