    I hope they come out and kick some ass to show the patriots way of dealing with crisis.

    JSN, your weekly banners are awesome, that kitty cat looks so sad :p

    He's really just hedging his bets. With all that's happened this week, this could go two ways. The first is that this could blow up and the team, probably minus Brady, Welker, and a few others could quit. The second is that BB takes full control of the team and it rises to the occasion. If you've seen my post in the "predict the score" thread, you'll know which direction I think it will go, though I do not think it will cure our defensive woes. But I think, behind Brady, the offense is about to blow up.

    On top of that, I can't see the Dolphins getting through the rest of their schedule unbeaten. I could see us doing that.

    Pats will make it. Question is whether it'll be a one-and-done.

    Doubters and naysayers will motivate a team with character, but how much character do the 2009 Patriots have?

    Oh, we'll probably lose in the second round. But we'll make it in.

    You mean the Jets that are starting Kellen Clemens at quarterback and got swept by the Dolphins?

    The Pats and Phins have similar remaining schedules in terms of difficulty. With a one game lead I would give the edge to the Pats. Yet, I would not be shocked if the two teams ended up with the same record and it goes to the tie breakers.

    It would be an embarrassment to the Patriots organization if the "No-Name and Faceless" Phins with Henne at QB win the division title two years in a row. If last year's excuse was that we did not have Brady then I guess this year's excuse will be that we had Brady.

    their defense is always decent. plus they play tampa /indy/atl and cincy with indy and cincy possibly already clinched. polian might even throw the game like he did once against the titans to let jets make it interesting.

    Nah, the Dolphins are a much bigger threat than they are. However, you do bring up an interesting point about Polian. Maybe some crazy, pissed off, and scorned Browns fan will beat his ass for that one day.

    Who cares about these playoff predictions. This time last year, most of these predictions had the Jets as the #2 seed in the AFC with a 8-3 record. Two weeks ago, people had the Pats as the #2 seed.

    Presuming that we don't lose to carolina, I believe that Miami wins tie-breakers with us.

    I expect the Patriots to win the AFCE. Also, the Chargers still have to face the Cowboys and Bengals, and the Bengals still have to face the Chargers and Vikings, so the Patriots could still end up with the #2 or #3 seed (depending upon tiebreakers) if they don't blow anymore of these "should win" games.

    B

    I think we make the playoffs but it will be close, our D is not getting to the quarterback at all and that is causing us huge problems, any guy thats decent in the pocket has a great chance against us. Thankfully we only have one of those left to play and thats Matt Schaub.
    Garard on his day can be very good so it will come down to the Jags game imo.

    One loss and we certainly make it, two and I don't know. Miami and the Jets will lose at least one apiece over the remaining games.

    In fairness, I'm certain many Pats fans were feeling the same way following the loss to Miami.

    But the Pats are winning this division. The Doofins are still jokes.

    Re: Vic Carucci AFC playoff predictions: Patriots won't be a part of postseason actio

    Forget about last year, fourteen weeks ago the consensus among the media was that either the Pats or Steelers would win the Super Bowl, and the Giants would finish with the best record in the NFC.

    Regardless, I don't see Miami winning the division. Sure, it could happen, but my guess is that the Broncos visit Foxboro in the first round of the playoffs.

    Is Brady healthy?
