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.

    •   So, you think I made some good choices? 2006CBE asked who I wanted for Harvey -- Rizzo and Bryant were not available. I think Contreras is the best. I know you guys like Schwarber but something about his weight bothers me. If Zobrist was under 28, I might have wanted him. If you still had Fowler, that is a guy I might want.   Given what you have, Contreras would be best for us. It won't haopen though. 
    • Right now, maybe half of the top 15 (or so) interior defensive lineman are 6'1 or less and about 300 lbs or less and arm lenght of around 32 inches (Donald, Atkins, Casey, Daniels, Jarrett/Kyle Williams). Only Donald was a day one 1 pick or drafted in the first two rounds. Casey went in the 3rd round. No one else was picked in the top 100. I don't think there is an other position were so many top players share similar trait and most of them were picked late in the draft.   Are teams that afraid of having a small team that they automatically give worse grade for smaller defensive lineman? If Aaron Donald, for example, had Geno Atkins besides him instead of Michael Brockers, would that line be as effective as one would expect just from the player talent level upgrade from Brockers to Atkins or even worse? I mean, Brockers is a good player but Atkins is on another level. And individually these players are great but would they work as well together on the same line? Not sure if it's as much about the size itself as these players can use it to their advantage in quickness and leverage but maybe two dlineman with short arms would create some issues?   Just wondering why so many of them have fallen late in the draft. I understand that some teams want bigger, physical players (like BB, Parcells etc) but what about those teams that had already gotten steals later in the draft with small interior lineman would jump at the chance to select a player who had great tape and showed similar traits as their best defensive player. Like Grady Jarrett in 2015. Both the Bengals and Titans drafted a dlinemen in the 4th, Jarrett went with first pick in the 5th round Bengals pick was actually two picks before Jarrett was taken.   Though the Bengals did take Billings last year and he might be next to Atkins but he was another 4th round pick. And Titans did draft Mike Martin to be their nose tackle a year after taking Casey but he didn't pan out. And I maybe haven't looked at closely enough at bust/success rate for smaller defensive lineman so these guys could be sort of outliers and teams just missed on these guys for other reasons.    
    • Also for retrospect on this list: Dan Marino--Mark Clayton & Jim Kelly--Andre Reed were snubbed.  Can you think of others that should be on here in place of someone else?
    • http://newarena.com/nfl/ranked-the-top-24-qb-wr-duos-of-all-time/7/?amxt=fbdesktop2   11. Peyton Manning/Reggie Wayne: Indianapolis Colts   In the post Marvin Harrison era, Wayne took the torch as being Manning’s go-to target. During his 14-year career with the Colts, Wayne had eight seasons with at least 1,000 yards receiving. He also managed to haul in 82 touchdowns during this time period. Manning’s resume has been chronicled ad nauseam. He is the all-time leader in passing yards (71,940), and is consistently mentioned as one of the best to ever throw a football in the history of the sport.   2. Peyton Manning/Marvin Harrison: Indianapolis Colts   The respective skill-sets of Manning and Harrison worked perfectly with one another. Manning’s unbelievable timing on throws was predicated greatly by Harrison’s ability to separate in coverage. One of the best technical receivers in league history, Harrison’s route-running capabilities led him to become an 8-time Pro Bowler and a 3-time First-team All-Pro. He also led the league in receiving yards twice with Manning under center. 114 of Manning’s 539 touchdowns throws went to Harrison. This statistic is simply mind-boggling — and further validates a top-three standing.   ( Jerry Rice also got mentioned 2 times.  #3 with Steve Young, and #1 with Joe Montana.)

    •   Sorry to keep harping on the Irish thing, but did you know the horseshoe has seven points on it?  (The Colts horseshoe, anyway.  Actual shoes for horses depend on the farrier).   Seven is considered a lucky number...  Lucky.  Luck.  I'm telling you, you picked the right team to root for.   7    
    •   Don't hold Boston against the Irish.  It's not our fault.    We love our green, which makes Indiana a tearmann.   I love it that you chose to root for an underdog instead of the Pats.  I don't think it's coincidence that you became a fan around the time Luck got drafted to the Colts.  That's providence.     Horseshoe?  Luck?  Four-leaf clover?  Come on.  Hoosier Hospitality has roots in Irish fun-lovery.  If you're lucky enough to be Irish, you're lucky enough!  May the luck of the Irish be with you!
