    host Browns............if we lose this game, Garrett should be gone. (Win)

    host Skins..............the Skins absolutely suck on defense. (Win)

    host Eagles.............Reid and Vick both done in Philly now (Win)

    at Bengals...............3 in a row is about as much as Garrett can do (Loss)

    host Steelers...........we probably get our teeth kicked in (Loss)

    host Saints.............not even Garrett losses 3 in a row (Win)

    at Skins................they will have nothing to play for (Win)


    That puts us at 9-7 on the year.......is that good enough to make the playoffs? I dont know, depends on if the Giants tank or catch fire at the end of the year like they always do.

    Due to our earlier losses in the NFC, especially to Seattle, a wildcard at 9-7 is highly unlikely. We either win the division or we stay home.

    We would have won 4 in a row going into that game by your calculations.

    While i like the optimism i don't take any win on face value. You need to work your butt off to get wins in this league regardless who you are playing and the Browns will be no walk over let alone looking ahead of that!

    If we are complacent like we have it won before we turn up Richardson will run all over us.

    I prefer the 1 week at a time approach right now!!! :cool:

    GB or Chicago is getting one wildcard, Seattle probably the other.

    Only way we're getting inn is winning the division and i honestly don't see that happening looking at how we've played so far this year. At least now we have a shot though

    I don't believe we will beat the Saints. They have finally gotten it together and are rolling.

    Will they still be rolling in a month and a half? Their defense is awful.

    There's still a lot of time left for wildcard seating, though you're right that we're behind on that front. It doesn't matter, though, if the East is up for grabs. These Giants aren't looking like they're walking away with anything anytime soon, to me.

    We are going to lose to Philly or Washington at home?

    highly doubt it.


    If we do lose 1, it will be the last game of the season in Washington, but they will be playing spoiler at that point. Just dont see us losing in that situation.

    I'm way more worried about home games then road games home for this team is absolutely no advantage what so ever. We simply don't preform well at home

    I cant argu that point.


    The way this season ends will determine alot of what happens to this team and this coaching staff. If we blow a couple of home games and end up watching the Giants win another Lombardi, I think there will be lots of changes coming in the offseason, both in terms of personnel and coaches.

    The Cowboys play the Eagles at home and the Redskins twice.

    The Eagles and Redskins are a combined 6-12 right now. Certainly possible for Dallas to sweep all three games.

    With this team's dumb luck I would not be shocked if we ran the table, won the division to make the playoffs, then go on to lose the first playoff game, then end up drafting in the high 20s, and selecting a player with the first pick at a position that's not an immediate need.

    In all honesty our record in losing games we should win and winning games we should lose is alarming and goes back at least 3-4 years.

    I don't take any game for granted and how some folks are penciling in wins already has me flabbergasted.

    Last week this board was wanting to lose to gain a high draft possy and now we are hoping for a 9-7 finish and maybe a division win. :eek:

    I can't imagine what will happen if we drop the Browns game next week and how the attitudes will change in this never ending circle that is the NFL from week to week.

    Whatever the Cowboys do, it's going to be something that hurts the team long-term. They'll probably do just enough to keep Jason Garrett here, keep the organizational structure exactly the same and enough to get more players signed to bad contracts.

    I'll stick with my 8-8 prediction from the spring. Steelers, Saints should be a loss as well as one other divisional game.

    The only win I have penciled in is next week against the Browns.

    I can't imagine losing that game.
