If I was a Boys fan, I would be embarrassed. The offensive play calling, the penalties and TWO 70 yard runs in the final minutes given up? Wade Phillips is a bum. They were like a pack of bungling clowns out there today. I will be rooting for Philly next weekend after that job.
It's hard for me not to like Baltimore, they play their @sses off. They deserve the playoffs as much as anybody. That entire team is into the game ALL game. Every shot of the bench, the defensive players are into every offensive plays and vice versa. Where as with so many teams, you see guys on the bench giggling, that team is into all 48 minutes and wants it. Flacco is going to be a good one, stoic, calm & collected. They may play ugly, but that defense is unreal. First downs are accomplishments against that team.
Not looking good for the Pats - for some reason, I'm thinking JP Losman is going to cost us the playoffs. It's just too hard to rely on the Seattle Seahawks and KC to help us. A Jets loss with a win the following weekend against Miami is my last hope.

Who would have thunk that the team that started it all (KC) can now have part in the final blow by losing to the dolphins. Makes me real uneasy that our season comes down to Seattle, KC and Jacksonville actually trying to win a game. Like it was said in 1980, "Do you believe in Miracles"? I do Go PATS!, Go Hawks, Go Chiefs.
It would be nice to catch a break ... but if we win out and don't make it then it is what it is. Considering all the setbacks this year our team can hold their head high. We've done our very best considering the available talent that we presently have.
Bottom line is legit playoff teams don't have to worry about having teams lose in order for them to get into the playoffs.
Most of you are too young to remember, but all of this "If the Jets and Doofins lose to two teams they have no business losing to" reminds me of the Patriots of the 1980's, always having to depend on other teams losing for them to get in, 1985 aside.
That Jets loss at home was a killer, I said it when it happened and I'll still say it today, it cost them the division, a home playoff game and more and more likely making the playoffs at all.
The defense played like ***** for most of the night and the offense came roaring back only to..........well, you all know how the game turned out.
Tonight was our best last hope and Dallas ***** the bed, it's going to take a miracle now.
"We don't throw at .260 hitters." Tek to Pay-Fraud before he smacked him across the face.
The Indy loss is going to burn us - it was just about the point in the season before BB unleashed MC and reverted to that supremely conservative tight@ss game plan that just lead to a bunch of field goals in a game where everyone knew Indy was bound to stuff it in. The play where we had 4th and 1 from the 6 and were pulverizing them and BB calling a timeout then kicking the field goal ends up being the call that keeps us out. That and the coin flip in the NYJ game. We won that Indy game in every phase, but put up 5 friggin FG's.
Unfortunately, when you have to depend on another team(s) to save your season, more often than not you end up on the outside looking in. I thought tonight was our best chance. Think about it - we need help from KC and/or Seattle. Holy $%^&. I hope I'm wrong (my wife and friends think I'm the eternal optimist, usually), but I'm not feeling good about all of this right now.
