    I like their spirit, but they should have talked playoffs before the season.

    Why are they more likely to lose 7 straight games to finish the year than they are to make the playoffs? I get that getting into the postseason is pretty difficult at this point but finishing 2-14 isn't as likely either.

    They do play four 5-4 teams (Buffalo twice), a 6-3 team, and a 3-6 team. That's a combined record of 34-29 the rest of the way. It isn't that daunting.

    Would you rather them just give up and throw in the towel? Sure making the playoffs is pretty unrealistic at this point, but at least they haven't given up or just quit. They are still fighting.

    Silly talk from a bunch of dudes who "when they talk" don't do a lot of backing it up. See Best CB tandem, Best defense, etc.

    Focus on Buffalo and go from there.

    Us fans can speculate tho:

    The NFL is very unpredicatable, especially in the AFC . . . You are only getting one team out of the West/South . . . and Bmore is the weirdest team in the NFL right now. Cincy may falter as well and the Jets certainly aren't a shoe in for 10 wins. It is definitely possible.

    Would have been alot easier had we finished against Cleveland, Denver and the Giants . . . but oh well.

    Sounds like the same chatter from this team from the beginning. They were intoxicated with the thought of being a top 5 defense. They talked about being the best CB tandem. Etc, Etc.

    Somebody's responsible for letting this team have such pipe dreams. They should be focusing on 1 play, 1 game and playing as 1 team.

    Geez!

    the only reason its basically not possible, is because even if the best case scenario did happen and they ended the season on a 9 game win streak to bring them to 9-7, they would need to win that 6th spot outright, because with 6 conference losses, they are not winning any tiebreakers.

    as you mentioned, if only we ****ing had beaten denver and cleveland, and the giants, but even if we had only won the denver and cleveland game and lost the gmen game, we still would have a chance. its a shame.

    we are going to finish with enough wins to miss out on luck and barkley unless its via trade, but we will still not make the playoffs.

    And we're screwed.^ I'm beginning to warm up on the prospect of Ryan Tannehill. He's not Tebow, the guy can actually throw.

    At least their spirits are up and are playing with confidence.

    Is it not commendable for a person to recoup some lost dignity and even aspire for greatness (the playoffs, championships, etc.) - particularly when it is against all odds?

    We will win enough games to only ruin our shot at one of the top qb's. Mediocrity is what this franchise is about. 7 to 9 wins a year. Enough to get our hopes up to only miss the playoffs and ruin our likelihood of drafting a franchise qb.

    Yeah, but you also have to be realistic. Right now they have a snowball's chance in hell of making it.

    Keep playing hard, let the chips fall where they may. Don't talk about things that are far, far into the future (if at all).

    Wow these guys have spent too much time in the sun. I'd be happy with 4 wins and a top 8 pick

    boo freaking hoo cut it out with the mediocrity crap, bunch of BS. Nobody wants mediocrity we want a little bit of pride at the end of the season thier are plenty of QB's out there that we can grab.

    Another thing if we bring in a coach he should be able to develop him, if not then why even hire him if he can not get the most out of his players?

    Bunch of bull.

    The goal is obviously to make the playoffs, what the hell was their goal when the season started?

    They need to STFU until at least 7-7 and then they can start to talk about a possible playoff berth.

    They need to focus on one game at a time (no matter how cliche it sounds) and fly under the radar so they can sneak up on people.

    Now we as fans can talk and say whatever we want, but the people on the team need to just do their job and focus.
