Week 10's Sunday action is all wrapped up and that means it's time to fire up the podcast machine.

We wonder why everyone counted out the Patriots, if the Jets can make the playoffs, why the Ravens stink against terrible teams, if the Bears or Lions are the better bet for the wild card, what Mike Smith was thinking in overtime against the Saints, if the Texans are the best team in the AFC, if the Cowboys are in position to overtake the Giants, and much, much more.

NFL Week 10 podcast review

Best team in the AFC?  Before last Sunday I would have thought its was Lord Baltimore.  The Inner Harbor Ravens were 6-2, had beaten the Steelers twice and they were flying high.  Then they visit Seattle and the 'hawks feast on the Ravens.  Boston Patriots?  The hubsters had lost two games in a row, including a last second loss to the G-men at home.  They go into a hostile environment and emasculate the Rex Jets on SNF, with Bill Belichick trash talking the Jets defense to perform an unnatural act.  Pittsburgh?  They have had their old and rusty behinds handed to them by the Ravens.  On the other hand, the Steelers finally did beat Bradriots, but the game could have gone the other way.  Houston?  They have two problems.  First no Andre Johnson, but they have been playing well w/o him.  Now, the Texans may have lost their team MVP, Matt Schaub for the season.

So, the two best teams this year that should meet in the Super Bowl... can't.  The Acme Packers and Saint Francis 49er.

NFL Week 10 podcast review

With the Bears upcoming schedule and how they've played since week 3 or 4, I would say they get the 5th seed.  They'll be very dangerous to play.

NFL Week 10 podcast review

I've been a Lions fan my whole life, and I don't think this team has what it takes to make the playoffs this year.
As other have said they have a very tough schedule down the stretch. Right now they are playing sloppy and undisciplined football.
They were totally unprepared for the Bears game on Sunday. A win in that game and they put the Bears 2 games behind them. Instead they were outplayed and looked disinterested in playing after falling behind early. I blame the coaching staff for that. We don't know how serious the injury to Stafford's finger is, but it sure looks like it's going to affect his accuracy.  Add to that a lack of a proven running game I can't see them winning more than 2 of their remaining games.  We'll see what happens, but unless this team does a complete 360 they will be watching the playoffs once again.

NFL Week 10 podcast review

I understand everyone thinks they know exactly what it going to happen.  How many of you thought the Broncos would be winning with Tebow?  The Lions have a tough road and have made good strides developing as a team, but there chances are slim to make the playoffs.  After reading some of the posts there are some things that you may want to consider.   1. The Cowboys are finally playing well and only one game behind the Giants.    &nbs
p;   2.  The Saints and the Falcons have been inconsistant and you never know what team is going to show up.  3.  The Raiders and Chargers are average teams that anyone can beat.  4.  The 49ers are still unproven, they look good, but you really don't know if and when they are going to fall apart.  5.  The Giants have way to many injuries and it could become a big problem down the stretch.  6.  As much as I hate to say it Green Bay is the only team that has anything wrapped up and are the hands down favorite to win it all.

Oh yeah, the Lions also have to play the Saints in a few weeks too.  they're done.  2 losses against GB, they'll lose to the Saints, and I think they'll lose to both the Raiders and the Chargers (they might win one of these games but not both).  that's a minimum of 4 losses and probably going to be 5 putting them at 8-8 on the year.

No way, the Bears yes the Lions no.  The real Lions have shown face over the last 4 games with their 1-3 record in that span with the 1 win coming against the Broncos.  Lions have yet to play GB and have a tough Oakland team on their sched.  I think the Chargers can beat the Lions too honestly.  I see a minimum of 4 losses remaining for the Lions putting them at 9-7.  The Bears can potentially finish 12-4 the rest of the way with the tough part of their schedule now over.  The 2 toughest teams the Bears have remaining on their schedule are the Raiders and Packers.  11-5 or 12-4 is what I see the Bears ending up with pending injuries of course.  I think ATL is a better team than the Lions anyways.  NFC playoffs will consist of the Packers, 49ers, Saints, Giants, Bears, and Falcons, listed in order of seeding.  Lions blow.

Looks to me like both the Lions and the Bears will be in the playoffs....just a matter of positioning.
