    Before the season started everyone had their expectations, some may have changed, some may have not.

    What are your expectations as we stand here today?

    I think we're an 8-8/9-7 team.

    I think we are 10-6/9-7 team that has a very good chance of making the playoffs as a WC team.

    We are a young team.

    The wins are exciting, the losses are frustrating.

    I am seeing improvement, and great potential.

    I'm excited about our future, not necesarily for this season, but for the next few after that.

    Although I still think we will be in the playoffs.

    Until BP changes his playing "not to lose" philosophy, 4-12 wouldn't surprise me...but then again either would 12-4, but 12-4 comes only with luck of course.

    Arizona can upset us with this philosophy.

    We have the Defense to win the East..........we just need for BP to grow a pair and be more aggresive offensively.

    I put to win the NFC east. the eagles are actually looking vulnerable this year, and hopefully next year things start to fall apart with TO and westbrook leaving.

    8-8, maybe 9-7 if the ball bounces right.

    Wild card. Hell, I thought this was a 9-7 team to start off the season. I now think they are a 10-6 team. Which also means they have to go 6-3 in the final 9 games. I can see that happening. The big game is Arizona. If they make it to the bye week at 5-3, I'd say they will be fine.

    Nice bell curve going.... I still think we're too inconsistent to win the division or the Super Bowl but a Wild Card spot is a definite possibility.

    Mine have not changed. I expect this team to compete for a playoff birth and I think we are still in a good position to do just that.

    How can I say anything but SB. If I can expect this team to make the playoffs then why stop short? Makes no sense to me. We have a dominant D and our O will pick it up.

    I hope your right. If Dallas is playing good at the end of the season then we would have a shot. Heading into the season my expectation was to make it back to post season and if we do that I'll be happy about the season, if we make it all the way then all I can say is this team went beyond my expectations.

    With our remaining NFC East games all away and KC and Denver on schedule, we will need to play great football to get a wild card birth.

    This is a 10-6 team. ARZ, DEN, KC, DET, and STL at home. All winnable games. Not too worried about DEN and KC, cuz our run defense is amazing. We've shut down LT, Alexander, Portis and Barber, I'm not too frightened of KC or DEN.

    Add to that the fact that NY, WSH and PHI are just now starting to play eachother, and we've beaten two of them, and dominated the other for 55 mins (argh) and I think we're in good shape.

    With NY, Phil, and Was facing each other over the next four weeks, and Dallas facing three very beatable teams in Arizona, Philly, and Detroit, it is very conceivable that Dallas could be headed into Thanksgiving at 7-3 atop the NFCE. I actually think it will be the Giants, who face Washington, San Fran, Minnesota, and Philly, and will likely be 8-2 or 7-3 at that point.

    Philly is really at a turning point in their season. Their next three games have them travelling to Denver and Washington before returning home to host the Cowboys in a Monday nighter after the Cowboys' bye. It is very conceivable that they could lose 2 of three if not all of those games, which would put them in serious jeopardy of not only failing to win the division, but also of missing the playoffs.
