I hate to say this, but I not only see it, I feel it. We are going to miss the playoffs.

Please don't view this post from a homer perspective. I'm not telling you to stop believing, in fact I don't believe my opinion and or your hope makes one bit of a difference in the end anyway. Why do I believe this, well I started looking at our final six opponents to gauge our playoff hopes along with our peers final games. And every team we play is on the uptick as far as their overall play. Some have been able to turn that into wins, while others haven't.

I already knew we needed to win at least 5 out of our last 6 to really be sure we have a spot. That is why I have been hoping for greenbay, Chicago, and Detroit losses. And they have lost, but I don't think we are going to be any more consistent than them, or at least not significantly more. That I believe will open the door for Arizona who we have to play in the final game, in Arizona.

Lets just call the Seattle game a loss, because we aren't good enough at this time to beat them, and believe me, they will want to make a statement in winning the division. I also envision us losing to Arizona in Arizona, as they have only lost once at home this year. I was hoping the colts would be able to give us breathing room, but that doesn't appear to the case. Pretty sure the colts lose on the road to Seattle, but again that won't be enough because we will give up another game to either the rams, bucs, or skins.

My prediction is: we beat the skins, rams, lose to Seattle, and then in an upset lose a low scoring nail biter to the bucs. We bounce back beating the falcons, then lose to Arizona in Arizona, in the biggest win of Arians career as cardinals head coach. As a fan I hope as I'm writing this the colts come back to defeat the cardinals and break up the momentum that the cardinals are building. Because they are the team, the only team that keeps us from the playoffs.

The other NFC North teams are too inconsistent to keep us out. But in my gut I don't see us breaking through our inconsistent offensive play. Like I said in the beginning, don't get all butt hurt, Ive never been the type of fan to hide from what I see. I hope I'm wrong, but we are late into the season, so I doubt we have the time to work our way out of this. What really sucks is we are a better team than Arizona.
