Smitty might be a damn prophet about us seeing Seattle in January.

Along those same lines, New Orleans is more likely to make it to and subsequently win the NFCCG but we have a higher chance of winning the SB than they do.

It's because they have us ranked as the 3rd best team in the NFL.  They sim out the season which factors in tiebreakers, so a team like N.O., who currently has a better record (2 losses, 0 in conference) is more likely to get in to the playoffs (and win the division) than we are, but has a lower probability than we do of winning in any given game once in the playoffs, thus a lower Super Bowl win probability overall.

almost, but we get the jets and pats here which helps and i think we can pull off beating the dolphins.

 

we also already lost to the seahawks so that's out of the way.

 

what we don't have out of the way is any division games yet.

 

it won't be easy, but i think it's definitely doable.

They have a brutal stretch going on. We very well can split the next 2, and still gain on them. Or they are for real, and we never catch them.

Best case, the 1st game at...that building, is for the Division lead. We spank them so badly, they are never a threat again.

Cam being Cam, teamed with this Defense. Yeah, I like our chances of catching, and overtaking, the aints.

In the grand scheme, losing to the 9ers is not a big deal. However, beating them would be.

Short story long. The Offense we have been watching is built to take what the Defense gives them. We are the Pats. The good Pats, when they had a D. Whatever it takes to move the chains, and score.

We don't have a Stud WR, yet, please, we have 3 guys with 30+ catches. (OK, Lafell only has 27.) Teddy has 21. That is pretty good production if you ask me. Who'd a thunk it? Well, that's another thread.

We are aggressively methodical, and physically efficient. We have become the Bully, Big Brother team. Rivera just got hisself a stenshun. With the way this team plays football. I can live with that.
