If Cincinnati loses tonight

39 posts in this topic

We need a Jets and Bengals loss. Or a win.

There are a bunch of other scenarios, but they all include ties.

I have AJ Green on My Fantasy team yet I'm playing a guy with Andy Dalton. So I guess i hope AJ Green goes off while Dalton throws a massive mount of picks handing Philly the win and thus helping the Colts and myself.

I don't see the Bengals losing to the Eagles. I expect the Bengals will win

I can see the Eagles pulling off an upset. With Bryce Brown playing well, Foles looking good. And a great comeback win against the Bucs they are starting to gain confdence.

Nope we need a win or a Jets loss but a Bengals loss does help. That means the only way we could miss them is if we lose out and the Jets and Steelers win out.

Does that mean the Colts are in the playoffs? or do they still need one more win.

if bengals lose tonight, we still need a jets loss if we want to automatically be in. or just a straight colts win.

Idk.... I'm so CONFUSED!!!! NFL Network is saying we just need a Bengals loss. But if they lose tonight..... we'll just hope the Titans can come through as well

The only games i changed was making sure Cincy lost, and then the Colts went 0-3. Colts are home for the playoffs.

If you add in a Jets loss then they are back in. Which seems to fit scenario #5 from the file I posted.

Like I've been saying since 1958 I've hardly ever seen in my day a team help the colts. Well maybe for the best. Good night.

Eagles with 3 straight turnovers, WOW!!!!! Eagles are in a rebuilding mode now... Defense kept Eagles in the game and offense wissed it away...I'll keep watching, I believe Foles will be a good QB, he's only a rookie so maybe by end of next year he'll be doing better, 3rd year he might be tough!!!!!

If we need other teams to lose to get into the playoffs, what would be the point of our going anyway?

would a cincy loss have helped us? I'm not so sure because of the Jets lurking around. remember all those scenarios that require ties. well , what is the likelihood of other teams ending in ties?? not very likely.

I'd rather go with the sure thing and beat Houston instead of waiting on ifs and fifths. Take advantage of the opportunity now while it's here. Win and get in. We're capable so let's do it!

I agree, TCOB. Now that Cincy has won and it's likely that the Jets, Ravens, & Steelers will win out (except for the times that they have to play each other), we will have no choice but to win probably two out of the last three to be a sure 100 percent lock. Unless they have done the calculations and we get in with just one win, but getting in with losing 2 out of our last three would be like a total downer because we haven't proven anything as far as being able to beat a good quality playoff team. So I agree with you, we're capable, so why not get in by pure might and merit.

    • I've heard of Mike Francesca.. I've never heard his show.  Not one time.  Hes not on here in the Chicago area.
      I'm not knocking him..he must be good. I've just never heard him Howard Stern isn't on in Chicago. Most of the names you mention, I've never heard their shows. Russo used to be on with Don Imus when Imus was on TV...and that's where I know him from. Seems like a decent kid but he's strange   We didn't get Sporting News radio in Chicago except overnights. The NBC radio network was never on up here.  Daytime sports programming was and is pretty local in Chicago.... Mike North, Dan Jiggetts....Carmen and Jurko....Waddle and Silvy   With Sirius Radio..I know every body is on Nationally now... Ive heard a little of that (just got a newer car) and it sounds good..a channel for every sport. Interesting But its not free... so my interest is chilled by lack of cash    
    •   You have never heard of Mike Francesa? He has been on the radio since 1989 or so. His show comes on in most parts of the country on weekday afternoons. If you heard of "Mike and the Mad Dog", he is Mike.  He has had a national football show on the radio on Sundays during the NFL season for at least 20 years.   You mentioned Chet Coppack. There used to be a 24-hour sports radio station called Sporting News Radio. Do you know it? It may still be around but we no longer get it where I am. I believe it was based out of the Chicago area or somewhere in the Midwest. Chet Coppack used to have a show on Saturdays or Sundays. Other sports radio personalities that I remember were Jay Mariotti, Scott Wetzel, Nestor Aparicio, Tony Bruno, Papa Joe Chevalier (deceased), Bruce Murray, Rick Ballou, and others. I used to enjoy them because they talked national sports, not just local sports. 
    • Dont get me wrong, Dan Gilbert is a terrible owner. But, this is 99% LeBron's fault. Even If the cavs still had Griffin, there is nothing that Griffin can do to improve the team. They have no cap space to get big time free agents and they have no assets to trade, outside the big three. LeBron stood his ground and made sure his guys got paid. Tristan, JR, Shumpert, and Frye. Those contracts look as bad with the cap increase as they did before them. LeBron forced the team to trade any assets they had for the likes of Mozgov. Lebron got the good coach fired and had him replaced him with his buddy. Lebron gutted the team from the inside out and he's now doing his best to shift the blame of him.    Kyrie requested to be traded back when Butler was still with the bulls. Why leak the information weeks later? And the guy who leaked it, Windhorst, is well known to be LeBron's guy. Just more shifting of the blame
    • That's true..but a new GM can do the same. Look I understand why folks don't like Dan Gilbert. He never speaks. Never defends himself..and he bad mouthed LeBron on his way out of town.   But when you lay down the bucks the way he does, I think he can be demanding. I dont know what trades they can make in their financial situation... Irving wanting to be traded may be a blessing because it allows them to get finances back somewhere near seas level.   I dont know if you can count on the same guy who overpaid everybody to turn around and find value guys
    • Again, I don't like every move Griffin made, but he had some success and got them to win the title.  If nothing else, keeping Griffin means continuity, so you can perhaps get rid of some overpriced players and find guys who bring more value to your team.
