Broncofan Posted December 21, 2021 Share Posted December 21, 2021 We had the playoff watch, which was a nice refreshing change...but at 7-7 and 3-6 in conference play, we're 1 loss away from total elimination, and already facing a tall order in beating @LV , @LAC (which isn't so hard stadium-wise, but LAC will be very much in the playoff spot, and unlikely to go -3 in TO's to us again), and of course, KC (who with the #1 seed, would have to have some major fortune to have a bye week for Week 18 with NE & TEN chasing them, and winning the tie-breakers in a tie). https://tankathon.com/nfl Crazy part - if we had won vs CIN, we'd be hunting for a playoff spot, but once the WFT-PHI game is over (both are 6-7, and both have a much better SOS than us) - we'll be in the #12 pick spot. And while I don't think it's realistic to think we'll drop any further than 1-2 spots, a top 12 pick would look AWFULLY attractive to SEA or GB - if they want to re-dive into the QBOTF pool, or they want to just improve (much more than a pick in the late teen's). And before ppl think I'm hoping that DEN tanks - I don't hope they tank. I hope they give it their all, and have a CIN-like result - where we see the core and reasons to be so optimistic, but have the parts on our team that aren't likely to return to be our downfall. It's certainly very plausible with @LAC/@KC. And LV's always matched up well with us - and they're in a better spot than we are, tiebreaker wise. Either way, worth watching. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
