Two weeks ago, the sky was falling here on this board and in Patriot Nation. Everyone was looking for scapegoats. Well, we are now 9-5 and two games ahead in the division. We are currently the 3rd seed in the AFC. Our offense is #2 and our defense is #11. We've even seen an OK start from Brace. We have no guarantees for a playoff spot; only indy and san diego have those. We won't have a bye, but most of us figured that out weeks or even months ago. ================ Curiously, this is exactly where most of us thought this team would be at this point in the season. Alos, both the offense and defense are about where most of us predicted. The only open question was and is who will be healthy for the playoffs or even for the next two games. I expect to see Taylor play against the jags. We need Wilfork and Warren back. At this point, I don't think it much matters about the rest of the injured. ================= So, I guess those who expected a 13-3 season or thereabouts are disappointed. For the rest off us, we look forward to the rest of season and to the playoffs.
