    No, they won't. I really don't see Seattle winning this game barring a Favre collapse, and I think the Jets are going to grind out a win.

    Then we'd need the Jags to beat the Ravens (or the extremely unlikely event of a Jets-Phins tie), and I don't think that happens.

    It's a real shame, because I think we would do some damage in the playoffs...

    Some years you catch some breaks. Some years you have half your team get injured and catch NO breaks at all. Well, there is always next year. :(

    Not this year unfortunatly. But they've make great strides to incorporate, what seems to me, the new face of the Patriots. As fans, we'll be okay. It was, regardless on what happens next week, a good year. Here's hoping Brady will come back as strong as ever, and the Patriots brain trust will do some innovative drafting/aquisitions in the off season.

    Why isn't "Yes, thank you Jets." an option?

    Jets will lose today and beat the Dolphins at home next week.

    Re: Bottom line. do the pats get in the playoffs?

    I'm sure we're all hoping for that. But at this point, depending on other teams seems like a mute point.

    I doubt Seattle can play with the same intensity they did against the Patriots. With that said, I certainly do hope we get into the playoffs, whether it by a Jets loss, or a Ravens loss against the Jags.

    But to be honest, I just don't see it happening this year.

    Re: Bottom line. do the pats get in the playoffs?

    I guess you have to give it up to the Titans (not on our schedule), Ravens (not on our schedule), Steelers (They kicked our butt), Colts (Belichicks clock management, Thomas PF penelty), Jets (1st half mistakes, not going for 2 at the end of the game, losing the coin toss, and not making the play on 3rd and long in OT), Dolphins (hitting us with the Theoretical Novelty Single WIng - now popular), and the Chargers (BAD Week 5 matchup).

    Sometimes, things just do not work out in your favor. Need to go back and retool the entire defense.

    Maybe the league needs to set up flex scheduling to pair teams with good records (that have not played each other) to determine which teams make the playoffs. In week 17, We go to Baltimore to determine the 6th seed and Jacksonville goes up to Buffalo. That seems to be the only fair way to decide playoff berths.

    The Jets will win today and the Ravens will win next week and the Pats will miss out.

    Re: Bottom line. do the pats get in the playoffs?

    Any other year, I would have confidence one of those teams lose next week. But just too much has found its way to work against us this year and you just get that awful feeling that things just won't fall our way in the last 2 weeks :(

    This is not valid...if we went for it and missed people would have just been saying "Why the hell did we go for 2 when we could have kicked the XP and played in Overtime!"

    I do like the flex thing.

    I have no faith in the Jets winning another game this year. They look to be toast. The Pats go 11-5 and miss the playoffs.

    somethings gotta go our way. 11-5 and missing the playoffs is unfathomable to me.

    Re: Bottom line. do the pats get in the playoffs?

    New England goes to Buffalo, Miami goes to New York. Miami had some issues in the cold in KC today. The Jets, even now, are better than KC. Next week, Miami is a young team with playoffs on the line and the cold/weather to deal with in the game.

    The Jets know Buffalo is a tough place to play as well with the crowd noise, so the Pats are not a lock to win. I believe the Jets can win that game, even after the stinker in Seattle. All the wrongs of the past few weeks can be made right with a Jets' win in the hope New England pitches a stinker against a Buffalo team (7-8) looking not to have a losing season. The outcome will not be known before the game, so it will still be a question as to what happens against the Bills.

    The Jags on the other hand are 5-10 with no motivation other than the spoiler role against the Cravens. They could have played that role in the Colts game but let the Colts throw 24 points on them in the second half. That game is also in Baltimore. I would not be optimistic about them beating the Ravens.

    I'm cautiously optimistic. Seven hours ago, I thought the season was over. I love the Seahawks! :D

    I'd like to change my vote. I now have a pretty good feeling that we'll get in. In fact, I think we'll win the division since the Jets will beat the Dolphins.

    Um, I would also like to change my vote. I am feeling a bit more optimistic...I really didn't think the Jets would blow that game.
