Many of you might not think we got it, but there is an outside chance that we can make the playoffs. This does involve us winning out, but i like our chances now as compared to a month ago. We play everyone in the division again and Houston. Tampa is done, Atlanta is playing like crap, New Orleans might not need a win when we play them, and Houston is playing with a backup QB. Another note to add to this is that Chicago and Detroit are done. Detroit's collapse is typical failure stench coming from that town, and Chicago doesn't want to make the playoffs b/c they're not attempting to get a QB. Dallas nor the Giants don't want to win the East so they're losing as much as possible. I think at 8-8 we can sneak in.

Maybe. Not holding my breath, though. I want a good draft pick...

Why limit the potential of Cam?

Superbowl!!! :D

You know, whether we make the playoffs this year or not, I am calling this season a win overall.

Cam has come out gunning and when we get our #1 D going, it's gonna be shock and awe.

As long as we don't face any starters there is a chance.

Explain why neither team would want to win the East? I'm not sure I follow that.

i'm not holding my breath, but there's no reason to believe we can't win out.

4-1 when facing backups
0-7 when facing starters.

That is the reason.

Turnover plus bad defense is how we lose.

Like TRD said we need to prove ourselves against a good qb and a good defense before we start saying playoffs.



I can't believe I just said like TRD said.

I think that comes at home this week against Atlanta, who is slipping. We never play well in the Dome, but we even hanged last year at home I think? Correct me if i'm wrong.

no chance we make the playoffs but given our schedule a 4 game win streak is definitely doable

Falcons @ home - this game could go either way, but I could see a win

@ Texans - they're starting TJ Yates and just lost Andre Johnson for (likely) a couple weeks. winnable game.

Buccaneers @ home - they're a bad team, easiest game left on the schedule

@ Saints - if they are playing for the #2 seed I count this as a loss. If they're resting starters yeah it's a win, but the 49ers only face one team above .500 down the stretch so it'll likely come down to the last game for the #2 seed.

sadly I can also see us losing out with how inconsistent this team is.

I remember when we beat the redskins, and all of a sudden this board was on fire. Playoffs! Superbowl! Best 2-6 team in the history of the nfl! and we all know what happened. Temper expectations I see us probably winning 1 of the next 4 possibly 2 if NO sits their starters.

With our defensive play in the last two games, especially yesterday against Blount, I think it is entirely possible for us to win out.

But, IIRC the other half of the equation is Detroit and Chicago have to lose out. That's the part I don't see happening.
