    Way to high?

    Fair assessment?

    Way to low?


    Given our performance this season, anything more than 2-2 finish would be abnormal IMO

    10% seems generous to me.

    I would put it at 40% Giants, 30% Cows and Skins.

    I think it's about right. There is a 10% chance we can win out.

    That's way too high. More like a .001% chance. So I'm keeping hope alive! :D

    So both Dallas and Washington are 10% and NY chances?

    It's a 3 team race with NY having an advantage but with a tougher schedule. The 3 teams are flawed and injured. It's anyones race now.

    I would say Washington has about a 50% chance. Other than the Ravens who they can beat, they have a very soft schedule left and NYG has a tougher one. I see the division going to either NYG or Was.

    I see our chance as pretty much zero. We have tough games left against all playoff caliber teams.

    Given the fact they have lost to Carolina and St Louis I don't think anything is a given for Washington, for the Giants or for the Cowboys.

    I'm sure you see our chances as zero. No a shock there.

    If we go 3-1 with one of the wins being @wash it doesn´t matter if they win their other 3 games, we have the tie breaker. NYG would have to go 2-2 on their final 4, if that were to happen the Dallas Cowboys will be the 2012 NFCE Champs.
    Am I saying it will happen ? No, but at least there´s a chance. I do believe that the Giants will lose two more games so the cowboys must focus on at least winning two of the next three, that way we are playing for the division on the last week of the season.

    I think 2% is more likely. This group of guys is just another .500 team. Odds of winning 4 more in a row are extremely unlikely.

    I just don't think we have the horses on defense at this point to control New Orleans. Too many injuries, all up the middle, at the positions with the least depth. I don't see that we're better than around 50-50 in any of the other games, either. So maybe 15% to go 9-7, much lower than that to win out. Given that, maybe 5-10% to win the division, if things break for us.

    If we end up winning the next two and the Giants lose 2 out of the next three the NO game could be meaningless, it would all come down to week 17 @Washington.

    I think, in a pure shoot-out, they win.

    Sure, could be. But that scenario still requires going 9-7 and getting help, which is what my odds were based on.
