Originally posted by GrimisRavens are going to have to run the table almost to get out from under that 4 slot. A game and half behind NE and 3 behind the Fuck Bob Irsays is going to be tough to overcome.
Incidentally, I would love to see the Fuck Bob Irsays come back to Baltimore for a playoff game if Tennessee takes the South. Talk about a mob scene....
This is how I think the schedule will go for both Indy and Tenn....
The Dolphins look good again.I think it was definately in there favor that the game was moved to Tempe,taking the homefield aspect away from San Diego.Now Wandstett has a possible QB controversy on his hands.He either puts Fielder back in who cant find his passing game yet or take another chance with Griese and hope for the best.Is it me or is Ricky Williams not gonna get his bonuses this year?He is far from being overpowering this season.I think he has only one game over one hundred yards rushing.
Controversy? I dunno. Fiedler has 6 TDs and 7 INTs this year (if I read that MNF graphic right), while Griese had 3 TDs and no interceptions in one game. Granted, that one game was against San Diego, but Fiedler has been pretty mediocre against some suspect opponents...Jacksonville, anyone?
I say go with Griese this week, and if he beats the Colts that solves that problem. If he stinks, Fiedler goes back in.
As for Ricky, his problem is he's hesitating. Last year I don't think I ever saw him stop in his tracks, but his year he does it every time the hole isn't right where he wants it. He's gotta get that quickness back; the problem isn't with the O-line. If he can get that back, he'll be fine.
The O-line isn't exactly helping matters, though. They need to open up holes for Ricky - he can't do much when there are multiple defenders in the backfield.
As for the QB controversy, the Marlins winning it all has really taken some of the attention away from it, thank god. I'm a Fiedler supporter (he doesn't put up the numbers but he wins games), but as long as Griese plays well I say leave him in.
Yo, it's me, it's me, it's (points to self) P-A-B!
No one is saying a playoff gives you the BEST team. Obviously the best team doesn't always win. Just because Team A beats Team B, doesn't mean they are the BETTER team. Hence my OSU-USC example. (If you want to be an idiot about it, fine.
