It’s starting to look a little like the 2007 season, a very similar situation, after a moral victory we go and beat a pretty good team then put ourselves in a position to win the division. Winning the division is the only way to insure we get into the playoffs. Our record stands at 7-6, the same as the Cowboys and depending on each team’s record at the time it might turn out to be a must win game for both teams in the rematch at the end of the season. During our game with the Cowboys they lost their key offensive threat on the ground, Murray is out for the rest of the season, a big loss for the Cowboys, plus they are thin at the RB position. The Cowboys are in a nose dive as usual, Jerry Jones puts an excessive amount of pressure on this team to win. A lot is on the line, including people’s jobs, heads will roll in Dallas if they don’t make the playoffs. I expect a similar fate for the Giants although maybe not as severe. Honestly, I think Jerry Jones should fire himself first before he does anybody else.
I am not going to sit here for a few hours and figure out all the possibilities for the Eastern Division playoff picture, if anybody does please let me know. There are just too many variables right now. Can the Eagles win it at 8-8, after looking at the remaining games and division records it is a possibility, at least I think it is. They still have a game with Dallas and Washington. That’s why I say the Giants must win every game to insure they win the division, 10-6 would be enough to do it.
