    WIN AND IN BOYS LETS DO IT! Same shit we had to do last year
     
  2. Ravens clinches a playoff spot last when the Steelers lost that in playoff know made what. As for The Gaints that do get in, in a 3 way tie that said on NFL NEWTORK that if the Skins win out that beat the Cowboys, and the Gaints for there division and if it a 2 way tie with the Gaints and the Cowboys the Cowboys win out the division in a tie breaker. Gaints can not get the wild shot in a tie with the Hawks and the Bears and Vinking beat the Gaints in a tie breaker as well! Unlike last year when the Gaints has it easy to win there division last year that not going case this year and I don't see then getting in which I AND HAPPY FOR AS I HATE THE GAINTS! THAT STOLE 2 SB FROM MY PACKERS!
     
  3. If the Giants win out, either the 49ers or the Seahawks -- whoever does not win the NFC West -- could still have a better record than them and earn the No. 5 seed. But if the Giants get to 10-6 and do not win the division, they cannot be overtaken for the No. 6 Wild-Card spot.

    The Redskins and the Cowboys cannot both get to 10 wins, since they play each other in Week 17. If the winner of that game finishes at 10-6, that team will be the NFC East champion and out of the Wild-Card race, while the loser would have no better than a 9-7 record.

    Lastly, the Giants would be ahead of both of the Bears and Vikings even if all finish at 10-6. Since the Giants have not played either team, the tiebreaker would kick down to conference record. Both the Bears and Vikings can finish with at best a 7-5 conference record, worse than the 8-4 record in the NFC the Giants would have by winning out.

    NOT BEING STUPID
     
  4. Also yes gohan... Ravens did clinch a spot. If you read better you would see they can clinch the AFC north title because the Bengals are still around fighting them for it.

  5. Go on to this site http://www.nfl.com/playoffs/playoff-picture and it will tell u the gaints are listed as the 9th Seed in the NFC Playoff Hunt behind the Cowboys 8 seeds who are behind the Bears 7 seeds the Vikings are list as the 6 seed right now. and the Skins are listed as the 4 seeds as in the leader of the NFC East! Sources NFL.com! Weather u like it or not NFL.com is NEVER wrong so i not being stupid I going by what that are saying and there right b/c that getting the info for NFL Headquester.
     
  6. Listen dude when it's a 3 way tie the giants drop so low because the first tie breaker is division record. That is squashed in week 17 and it goes to conference making the giants go up. It's not that hard if you think about it


    If the Giants win out, either the 49ers or the Seahawks -- whoever does not win the NFC West -- could still have a better record than them and earn the No. 5 seed. But if the Giants get to 10-6 and do not win the division, they cannot be overtaken for the No. 6 Wild-Card spot.

    The Redskins and the Cowboys cannot both get to 10 wins, since they play each other in Week 17. If the winner of that game finishes at 10-6, that team will be the NFC East champion and out of the Wild-Card race, while the loser would have no better than a 9-7 record.

    Hopefully that makes sense GOHAN

    YOU'RE JUST MAD BECUZZZZ YOU KNOW KTHE GIANTS WILL WHOOP THE PACK AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGGGGGAINNNN
     
  7. Dude ur not getting IF that win that not going beat the Ravens. And maybe be the eagles but if the Skins win 2 game and the cowboy win that match next week and the gaints lose 1 of that to the ravens gress what gaints do not get in as cowboy have the ite breaker i get what ur saying but ur just amsomeing that the gaints are going win there next 2 game which that will not i belive that lose to the Ravens this week!
     
  8. Same thing they had to do last year bro. They had to win out and then they eventually won the superbowl. No team wants to play us so hell yeah. Root against us because the pack is who we would play first round.
     
  9. again if u make it! if u only 1 game and the cowboy only win one cowboy get in and the gaints are out and same if the bears win out!
     
  10. You forgot to add the Packers package to get a bye.
     
  11. Wouldn't be clinched till week 17. This is just for week 16
     
  12. I'm sorry dude, I don't know what you're trying to say? If you're just saying that you don't think the giants are going to beat the ravens and then I see why you think they won't get in

    But if they win out, they are in. I'm not even being a homer or anything. It's just true.
     
  13. Not if the Skins win out and the bears win out as the bears are playing the Cards and Loins 2 easy win Hawks will be the 5 Seeds, Skins be the 4 seeds east winner, and the bears can be the 6 seeds if that win out and the gaints out and Hawks win 1 of there 2 next game gress ur gaint OUT OF PLAYOFF! As the Bears beat the Gaints in a tie breaker! :pipebomb: get it now?
     
  14. But.... they....... don't lol
     
  15. There will be no tiebreakers because the Bears have been complete dog shit since they started 7-1. I'd be more surprised to see Chicago win both of those games than lose them.
     
  16. Regardless of the fact that Chicago is pure ass, gohan is wrong. I just don't know how to convince him of that.
     
  17. If by some miracle the Bears win out and the Giants lost week 17 to Philly I think Chicago may get by based on Divisional record.

    Bears would be 10-6
    Giants would be 10-6 (Skins as well, they win the division by way of a better conference record)

    Bears conf. record would be 7-5, as would the Bears

    Bears divisional record would be 3-3, the Giants 2-4

    So yes, IF the Giants lose to Philly and Chicago+Washington win their last two games, the Giants miss out on the postseason fun.

    edit: Dammit, just realized we were talking about the Giants winning both games. Pretty certain they are good to go if they win out.
     
  18. It must be a lonesome feeling to be a bears fan. That great start combined with the Packers shaky start ( Replacement ref blunder) and my oh my have the tables have turned.
     
  19. Fuck Bears fans. Try being a Raiders fan
     
  20. The Raiders have been pretty awful at drafting for awhile now. Mcfadden sure was a good pick but he's injured almost every year and has never reached his full potential. They took DHB too early and missed out on several other solid wideouts. I know Hakeem Nicks is one but there were others as well. Jamarcus Russel? Purple Drank.... enough said. They actually had a diamond in the rough at one time that never got a fair shot. Troy Smith, he is similar to russel wilson but with more athletic ability but he got on the bad side of the coaching staff. They get the bad publicity for some reason about their fans, which I think is bogus. Those fans are fucking nuts and perfect. It's been awhile since they've been good and they're run was cut short because of the hit on Rich Gannon. Then you had the trader of a coach leave Oakland, go to Tampa Bay, and win a ring. Yeah, i'd say it doesn't get much worse for a fan than that. I feel bad for you, but the potential is there to improve IMO.
