2004: We started 1-7 and were a 60-yd FG from the playoffs

I like the concept, and I have thought the same thing. If we can almost do it in 2004, we can do it now. The only problem with this fantasy is that in 2004, our coach actually gave 2 shits.

At least its a relief to know if we do go on a run we wont have to deal with Vick floating over the goal line to rip my heart out...

that was also the year that Todd Steussie or whatever threw the flag at the ref and cost us the game against I think it was Arizona.

I think it was Matt Willig against Denver, right?

I support this thread and I agree.

We look bad but not it's not as impossible as it may seem. I break it down to 3 goals we need to achive. The easy, the difficult and the hard.

The easy:

1. Beat the 49'ers and the Rams. Not saying that this is easy but the easiest of the 3 goals.

The difficult:

2. Perform at least as well as our divisional foes against our remaining opponents as they do against theirs. We all have fairly equal remaining schedules in terms of opponents.

The hard:

2. Sweep Atlanta and get even with the Saints. This feat could actually put us on top of our division. I would add the Bucs but as of right now, they are number 3 so they are not as big a threat but if they continue to play well we will have to get even with them too and pretty much sweep the remaining games of our division(something I said we would have to do anyway when this conversation came up 2 weeks ago).

Divisionals:

-As far as the Saints go, it really shouldn't be that hard. Not only did we get close the first time, but we play them at home this time and we only have to win by 3 against them for the tie breaker.

-If it came down between us and Tampa though, it would be hard. They have us by 13 points and with our offense I just can't see us returning the favor. But winning against them is simply a matter of our defense not having a bad day. Contain Josh better and we have a good chance.

-Falcons.....this one will be tough. No way around it. Damn miracle to sweep them.

Your delusional so your opinion doesn't matter.

I reiterate I'd rather have a top 3 pick then too try and miss out on the playoffs. Putting our pick back into the middle of the 1st round.

So you would rather your team plays like poo so you can get a high first round pick which will be a gamble anyway and may turn out to be no better than the last gamble you bet on. In the mean time we would throw away 11 remaining games of the season.

Awesome! You are a TRUE fan.
